Chris Hemsworth and Wei Tang in a scene from Blackhat

Movie Title: Blackhat

Year of Release: 2015

Directed by: Michael Mann

The Bent*Spud 2 Cents:

Chris Hemsworth's attempt at an action vehicle outside of the Thor costume ultimately misses all its marks. The premise - things are going to shit and only a troubled hacker can save the day - is a tired, worn-out one. It doesn't help that the acting is so wooden and by-the-numbers. Oscar winner Viola Davis's talent was totally wasted in this movie. She had a nice wig, though. The cross-cultural connection to China was no doubt a calculated move to maximize the film's box office chances, but unfortunately, even the Chinese market has discerning taste and turned away in droves, making this the first certifiable box office flop of 2015.
