Movie Info

Cousins Vincent and Anton are players in the high-stakes game of high-frequency trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream is to build a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions, but nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point with their daring adventure.

Critic Reviews for The Hummingbird Project

All Critics (117) | Top Critics (30) | Fresh (67) | Rotten (50)

  • What might have made for either a thrilling, high-stakes drama or, at the very least, an intelligent comedy, ends up wildly uneven.

    March 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's typical of a movie, written and directed by the Canadian film-maker Kim Nguyen, that hits all the right genre beats while consistently reaching for something more.

  • It's the kind of verbose corporate parable David Mamet would sit down to write after a heavy night on the sauce.

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • That the film is watchable at all, as incongruity, improbability and incomprehensibility accumulate, is a tribute to Canadian director Kim Nguyen, skilfully negotiating a script by Kim Nguyen.

    June 12, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A finance story that stretches beyond the usual coke-addled Wall Street traders.

    June 12, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's an odd tale, but in its sneaky way, an unexpectedly engaging one.
