2000s Movie Hackers

The original research was completed in the middle of 2008, so further movies will be added to this list.

Fifteen movies in the list appear so far from the 2000s, including one portraying the life story of Kevin Mitnick (Skeet Ulrich) entitled Takedown (2000), sometimes known as Hackers 2 or Track Down. A number of movies featured the theme of the protagonist being forced into stealing money; including Hugh Jackman in Swordfish (2001), Ryan Reynolds in Foolproof (2003), and Harrison Ford in Firewall (2006). Insider threats are featured in; Antitrust (2001), Cypher (2002), and Storm Watch (2002). Finally several movies in this part of the list are sequels to movies already in the list; The Net 2.0 (2006), Die Hard 4.0 (2007) and WarGames 2: The Dead Code (2008).
