Suggestions for movies with smart/resourceful protagonists.

I like a genre of movie that I have defined as the "smart protagonist" genre. That is, a main character who is clever and/or resourceful. Some movies I've seen that I place in this genre (where there is a series, I've just listed the character/series name):
The Shawshank Redemption
Batman Begins/Dark Knight
Any suggestions for movies that I'd like based on the characters in these movies? I've listed thrillers/action movies, but comedies and dramas are ok too. The antithesis of the character I'm envisioning is Paul Giamatti's character from Sideways.
