Because hackers tend to be ordinary, uninteresting people.

The only time I've ever seen a hacker accurately portrayed was in the very beginning of The Matrix. Anderson was a boring nobody who hated his job and didn't get enough sleep. From what I could tell, his hacking was primarily for additional income.

And hacking isn't something quick and flashy. It usually involves a lot of work and takes time. Yes there is that final moment where everything is open, but that takes a lot to get to.

Plus hacking is boring as fuck.

Because hacking is not exciting to watch. You run programs that do the work for you, thus you just sit there and wait.

Because it's fucking esoteric, and handwaving something that complicated is way easier than even trying to come close to getting it right.

Just abstract the whole damn thing and you get eyerolls from people in-the-know. Get it right and detailed, you bore your audience to death. Get it halfway right, then everyone's either bored or indignant that you were misleading.
