In a film so dull it would make the flap of a hummingbird's wing feel liked it lasted for eternity, a stellar cast is squandered on shallow characters and a what-were-they-thinking script.

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

While Nguyen does revolve the movie's elevated subject matter around a fairly basic race-against-time plot, he doesn't quite manage to wrangle his characters into the same orbit.

Eisenberg is not the guy you hire to spice up a movie that's literally about digging a wire in the ground.

It's hard for the viewer to get caught up in this crazy scheme.

One of the biggest issues facing The Hummingbird Project is that its core premise is neither cinematic nor particularly interesting.
April 4, 2019
We can count on an audience that likes to watch people work, an audience that will admire fast-talking hustlers, no matter what their grift. But eventually Nguyen plays softball with the conniving characters.

A tepid thriller, filled with technobabble...

Among the disappointments is that Jesse Eisenberg, so good in so many other movies, is wretchedly miscast as the hustler.

You often don't think about why you root for a film's protagonist. It therefore becomes very glaring when this intrinsic emotional attachment doesn't exist.

Sometimes you leave a film thinking that it was very close to being a good one, but somewhere along the way...story...direction...decisions made...it went off the rails a little.

Not even solid acting can fully overcome the alienating esoteric premise
March 23, 2019
Too much minutia and drilling.

This is a movie that has some moments, but falls short of being profound, especially about competition in the fast-paced world of technology today.
March 22, 2019
Hummingbird remains a tonally erratic project that struggles to find a point of view.
March 22, 2019
...the end result is a rather disappointing, exhausting journey that leaves us largely disconnected observers to a journey we never truly feel a part of in the first place.

Alexander Skarsgård's performance is perfect, as usual, and I wish I could tell you that his spectacularly awkward dance down a hotel hallway was worth it - but all you really need is a GIF of that, and you're set.

Eisenberg and Skarsgard can both be compelling actors when working with the right material, but neither one finds a way to connect with their characters here while Hayek's over-the-top turn leans almost embarrassingly towards caricature.

We get the technical side of [the story] quite clearly ... but that side is about as exciting as it sounds. It's not, to put it bluntly.
March 22, 2019
The Hummingbird Project is scattered with engaging moments, but there is not enough to warrant investing in.
