25 best hacking movies ever
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009)
We've included the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in our list for naming the film (OK, book) after a hacker. Who's also a girl! Righteous. Noomi Rapace plays the fierce, anti-social computer hacker Lisbeth Salander who helps journalist Mikael Blomkvist trace a serial killer in this dark and twisted thriller.
Her skills come in handy as the evidence is buried on a bunch of PCs – plus she makes off with a tidy sum in the process. David Fincher's remake was a bit pointless coming so soon after the original, but Rooney Mara made a creditable stab at playing Salander.
