    Disappointing!

    I had extremely high hopes for this film- but alas, they were dashed within the first 15 minutes. I kept watching hoping it would get better, but it didn't. This was one of those films where they previews were MUCH better than the actual movie. The storyline was "blah", the action was not there and neither was the chemistry between the two leads. At no time did I believe their love interest in this story. The whole thing fell flat and was extremely disappointing. Also there was something going on with the sound- it seemed off. I would not recommend purchasing. If you watch on cable or something else, make sure you have absolutely nothing else to do, including laundry because this was a complete waste of time. I am sorry to have added this to my collection!

    Mann's Slick Cyber-Crime Thriller

    Blackhat, directed by Michael Mann, may have bombed at the box office, but it's still a solid effort. After a computer virus causes a meltdown at a Chinese nuclear plant, the FBI and Chinese authorities team up with a convicted hacker (Chris Hemsworth) to find the suspect. While not as strong as Heat or Collateral, Blackhat still employs some stunning HD photography of locations in Asia and a couple of crackerjack action sequences. If you're a fan of Michael Mann, you'll enjoy Blackhat. No commentary from Mann on the disc (a real disappointment), but there are several solid short extras.

    Blackhat Beats Em

    I don't want to, but I see Thor battling the bad guys. I've watched this movie 3 times and it's like all I can think of is "Where's his hammer?" This is no reflection of Chris Hemsworth whose work as an actor is terrific! he plays a convict that's been furloughed if he can help the government capture some cyber criminals. The stakes get high and so does the body-count in this thriller that will have you surprised by the end of the movie. I had to give it 4 stars because of the Thor hang-up. Sorry!

    This movie is an eye opener and a lesson to learned and be alert and very careful with your information about you and where you used it, and limit where you used it , and be very careful on the Internet, when words or pop ups pop up saying to click on ,make sure you know who or what you are clicking on ,because hackers are waiting for you to click on , and then they hack or put a virus on your computer, so I really enjoyed this movie.

    Forget the critics who dissed this on release, a new Michael Mann film is always a treat and this one does not disappoint. The visual (literal) interpretation of computer ‘cyber attacks’ might appear a little too on the nose, but everything else bristles with electricity. Have watched it several times and always pick up something new, like watching a Kubrick.

    Chris Hemsworth (Thor in the Marvel movies) does a excellent acting job in this movie as a computer expert that is put into prison for hacking crimes. A computer hacker criminal is on the FBI's most wanted list and they must have a man with his skills to hunt him down. Much more complex than this simple description of the movie. Lots of actions and suspense.

    Very current plot with a different twist and plenty of action. Chris Helmsworth is great along with his female Chinese counterpart. This movie is probably more truth than fiction with the ability of foreign parties to hack into US and foreign govt's facilities to extract money. Well done and worth watching.

    I personally really enjoyed this movie, and decided to buy the Blu-ray. Without completely giving away the plot, it presents a fairly plausible scenario where a hacker can profit from human misery. The acting was great and the filming locations provided the viewer with a tour of some Asian cities.
