Looking for movies with a hacking/cracking theme to watch


Howdy,

I am a big fan of movies about hacking/cracking computers or networks. I've already seen these movies below:
  • Wargames
  • The Net
  • Net 2.0
  • Hackers
  • Swordfish
  • Sneakers
  • Live Free or Die Hard
  • Track Down
  • AntiTrust
  • Pirates of Silicon Valley


These are what I can remember now. Does anyone know anymore movies of this theme. I prefer the language of the movie to be USA English speaking or UK English.

It don't matter if the movie was a blockbuster hit or a flop.

Much obliged

Summer Wars.

The original language is not English, but this is a good one.

To a lesser extent, both of David Fincher's last two movies (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network) include hacking themes. They are also excellent.

The Millenium trilogy. I actually only wacthed the first two, and the original one, not the US version (I guess there are no many differences between them). It has some hacking/cracking component and the plot caught my attention from the beginning.

EDIT: Ahh, I see dugan also mentioned the film (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

Almost every Hollywood movie contains some scene where an unbreakable code is solved at the last second, one digit at a time.
