This question already has an answer here:
A female detective works a case where an all powerful group meets on the "net" to control the world's business (yeah, it's that old, circa mid 90s to mid 00s). She can immerse herself completely in the cyber experience, interacting with characters in a 360 degree landscape, able to talk, walk and travel in the "net". She is seen next to a vehicle and interacting with a video conversation on the street.
She talks to a hacker who eventually helps her. His avatar is a well built, Asian monk with a half robe, and he is gentle and supportive with her in an amused manner. In real life he is a Japanese "Jabba the Hutt" looking bulbous character with cables directly connecting him to the "net". He is on an Asian looking boat docked in a port. He finds the group by accident and then is killed by them, the movie shows the dead body on the boat. The hacker leaves virtual video clips that the heroine can interact with and he helps her find the way to disable the group.
The scenes in the "net" are placid, peaceful and serene where the two travel, but are industrial and stark when the group meets to play the game.
There is a virtual dolphin that the hacker interacts with, swimming on a screen playfully. The dolphin is virtual, not a puppet like in Johnny Mnemonic.
