Blackhat

Blackhat
Starring:
Chris Hemsworth


Rated: R for violence and some language.
Reviewed by: Dave  
Release date:  January 16, 2015 Released by: Legendary Pictures

Cyberterrorism is a subject of the moment. Yet, Blackhat and director Michael Mann misfire badly with the subject. I expected more from Mann, instead I received less with this pedestrian Techno offering. Blackhat is just another movie which could have been great, but isn't.

Sadly, hacker (Nick Hathaway) Chris Hemsworth after a strong performance in Rush isn't given much to work with here. Many of the visuals are outstanding, but overall the film is boring, and much too long. Hopefully, Hemsworth will soon be back as Thor, and this fiasco can become a distant memory.
