Lisbeth Salander and Other Movie Hackers

| |

Lisbeth Sander, from “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, is a successful computer hacker. She is able to earn a living by doing investigative work for a security firm, Milton Security. Throughout the series, Lisbeth applies her skills for various reasons. There have been many movies made about hackers, or with hackers in them. Remember “War Games” from all the way back in 1983? Yes, that little flick with a very young Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy where he incites Global Thermonuclear War by hacking into the computer that controls all of the United States nuclear weapons, basically rendering a World War III scenario. A few other hacker movies over the years include “Sneakers”, “Die Hard 4”, The Italian Job”, “The Net”, and “Tron”. Some movies about hackers have softer characters, such as Sandra Bullock in “The Net”, and others have more kick ass characters like Hugh Jackman in “Swordfish”. For example, on the tougher end of the spectrum would be Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, in “The Matrix”. He may not be a cage fighter, but he could dodge a bullet pretty good. This is where Lisbeth fits in. She may be a petite woman, but she more than takes care of business by taking down men twice her size. Take my advice on this; you don’t want to get on her bad side.
