Track Down, The one about Kevin Mitnick...Not "so" true to the story, but entertaining and made in "modern" times.

PS-IMDB lists it as Takedown, but its actual title is Track Down

I own and know it as Takedown, never heard of it being called Track Down.

For laughs, cool early 80's computer equipment and total bullpoop hacking scenarios I recommend the WarGames rip-off Terminal Entry: http://zxql3000.net/nerd/nerdmovies.php

And the sexy Joy Stricks is full of 80's arcade machines and sleaze, no hacking though. But definately one for late at night with a couple of beers!

It's Operation Take Down when it was in the theatres (didn't it go straight to DVD?) and the box says Operation Trackdown.

Can you believe that Wargames was rated R! Yikes! lol...

I would classify Sneakers as a Geek movie. But then again I would classify Wierd Science as a geek movie too.

That movie made me want to puke.

Only those exploding body packs (can't decide on what to call what they had strapped to them) with the metal balls was decidedly cool and dare I say creative?

Whole new spin on the old bouncing bettys.

Swordfish was a good movie in my opinion. Obviously lacked all realism in terms of 'hacking' but it was entertaining nonetheless. And that's what I want in a movie, to be entertained.

And Hale boobies... :twisted:
