The film follows a man who is implanted with a chip that allows him to control his body after a mugging leaves him paralysed.
Not Man. Not Machine. More.
When chip implemented, man becomes super human and finds out who is the murderer of his wife. Actions scenes are very cool and scary too.
8.) Mr. Robot :
This is also not a movie, this is TV show.
Mr. Robot has been widely praised for its technical accuracy by numerous cyber security firms and services such as Avast, Panda Security, Avira, Kaspersky, ProtonMail, and bloggers who dissect and comment on the technology and the technical aspects of the show after every episode.
This is story of Elliot Alderson, a cybersecurity engineer and hacker who has social anxiety disorder and clinical depression.

9.) Ex Machina (2015) :
Caleb Smith, a young programmer, gets a chance to become a part of a strange scientific experiment where he is expected to assess artificial intelligence by interacting with a female robot.
CEO, Nathan Bateman, who lives alone apart from a servant Kyoko, who, according to Nathan, does not speak English.
Nathan has built a female humanoid robot named Ava with artificial intelligence. Ava has already passed a simple Turing test and Nathan wants Caleb to judge whether Ava is genuinely capable of thought and consciousness, and whether he can relate to Ava despite knowing she is artificial.
Ava has a robotic body but a human-looking face & hands, and is confined to her apartment. During their talks, Caleb begins to feel attracted to Ava, and she expresses a romantic interest in him and a desire to experience the world outside.
Ava tells him she can trigger power outages that temporarily shut down the surveillance system which Nathan uses to monitor their interactions, allowing them to speak privately.
10.) The Matrix (1999) :
Computer programmer Thomas Anderson, known in the hacking scene by his alias “Neo”, feels something is wrong with the world and is puzzled by repeated online encounters with the concept of “the Matrix.”
