Too bad Thor doesn’t have his hammer with him, otherwise he could have just squashed all those hacker numbskulls. Of course, you’d have to actually buy into the theory that a guy who looks like Chris Hemsworth is also the smartest nerd in the whole wide world. If you can suspend your disbelief for that long, then I guess Michael Mann’s international cybercrime thriller “Blackhat” might be the flick for you.
One thing’s for sure: if we still had AOL, none of this bad stuff would be happening. Can you imagining waiting for your dial-up modem to connect before you can pull off some fancy schmancy hack? Most hackers would have given up and gone to play outside by then.
Set within the world of global cybercrime, Legendary’s Blackhat follows a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta.
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei and Wang Leehom, and chasing next year, January 16, 2015.
