.. yes there was a Matrix 2 and 3. I thoroughly enjoyed them.


Obligatory xkcd: Posted Image

Also, you already had The Net. I checked for that one.

I hesitate to mention, but there's a whole lot of anime that would fit the bill, of course.

I'll admit, I'm not really following the criteria here. So, I'll add:
Total Recall ( brain hacks )
Freejack ( same. Also, the novella it's based on, Immortality, inc, is excellent. )

the matrix 2 and 3 could have been a lot better if they knew they were getting sequels before the first one was released and hadn't made neo all-powerful by the end of movie.

it's the same reason superman movies usually suck, it's too hard to put that type of character in interesting situations.

I'm sure that there are plenty of interesting situations you could put superman in, but they are all NSFW.

This one looked interesting - haven't seen it, 'cause it's a movie and I can't be arsed, but at least I looked at it and thought "hm. looks not too terribly awful".

Never heard of that one. Curiously, you'll find it in Netflix under an alternate name, Track Down.

Robocop 1, 2 & 3.
Terminator 1, 2, 3, & 4.
Virus (1999)
Total Recall
Judge Dredd

Are some of my favorite movies. Although they are not movies about programming per se, someone had to have written the software for those machines/cyborgs.

I believe it was going to be called Hackers 2, but no one in the US wanted to touch it. I believe due to issues with Miramax not wanting to pick it up, or some bs. There was a documentary from 2600 about the actual events of Kevin Mitnick, & I think it's available on the web, but not netflix.

Judge Dredd

If you include Judge Dredd, you need to include the 'remake', Dredd. IMHO, Dredd is a better movie.

I enjoyed hackers, mostly because I had a thing for angelina jolie, and the social network was a really enjoyable film.

I found Dredd to be pornographically violent. I'm honestly not sure how I feel about that. However, it does have nmap, so should qualify regardless. ( It also has Lean Headey, who I love seeing in anything. )
