Blackhat

Critics Consensus

Thematically timely but dramatically inert, Blackhat strands Chris Hemsworth in a muddled misfire from director Michael Mann.

    It's good... but just too slow moving.

    Cyber thriller that relies on its style instead of an engaging plot. A much leaner, shorter film would have worked better, but Mann still knows how to film terrifying shootouts. There just aren't that many here, sadly. The locations are pretty great too, but the hacking elements just don't work as well as the conspiracy thriller parts. There are still quite a few memorable scenes here, especially thanks to the exotic locations and the charismatic leading duo, but the result could have been so much more engaging.

    I went to watch and review this movie and it took me up to almost the end to remember that I've actually seen this movie before. That should give you a clue as to how memorable it was. Story was decent as a cyber & espionage thriller but the story just didn't fit but was almost there. It was like the saying you can't force a square peg into a round hole, well this was more like trying to fit an oval peg into a round hole. Close but ultimately it doesn't fit. Check this one out if you want to but it is pretty mediocre.
