Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web

Well done and informative. Hulu documentary on Kim Dotcom, infamous 90's hacker from Germany. Started a security company and made millions, then got even bigger with P2P download/stream site megaupload.com.

About 2 hours, good story with background about him growing up poor in Germany and how he developed into himself after his mom buying him his first computer. Going from hacker, to security firm owner and finally the plot to arrest him and extradite him to America by the FBI.

The last 1/3 of the movie is probably the best, where they talk about the trumped up arrest warrant for copyright infringement, and the use of NZ counter terrorism police to raid his mansion.

Good view for you privacy buffs too. I give it a 4/5*
