favorite hacker movie

Wargames

sure other movies have hackers in them but this only one where computer hacking is key to the plot that I really like

the following movies I do enjoy but computer hacking is just a sub-plot

Office Space
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Mission Impossible- it was important but it wasn't central to the whole movie


and Live Free or Die Hard was bland

Probably Sneakers or Tron.

Unless it has to be realistic, then I'd go with ID4.

I'm not about to call this a "hacker" movie just for the one scene. That's like saying its a swimming pool safety movie because he "saves" Cameron in the pool.

I myself enjoy "Hackers". Silly, somewhat unrealistic, but fun.

Re: favorite hacker movie

There's a lot of Japanese animation where they venture inside computer networks and sometimes fight some evil entity within. "Serial Experiments Lain," "Digimon Adventure: Bokura no War Game" (the middle portion of THE DIGIMON MOVIE), and last year's anime movie, SUMMER WARS, all come to mind. But I'm not sure which, if any, of these examples actually involve "hacking." There are a lot of computer wizards in the series, "Digimon," but I can't recall if they actually do any hacking in it or not.

Hackers. I saw this movie in the theater back in 1995/96 and I was thoroughly entertained. Other than that, I would choose Wargames or Sneakers.
