Blackhat

Rated R 134 minutes 2015

Even Michael Mann is capable of making an out-and-out clunker once in awhile. Witness this putative cyber-crime spy thriller about a criminal gang hacking into banks, stock exchanges, and governments, and the American prison inmate (Chris Hemsworth) called upon to save the world using his muscles (natch) and his superior computer programming skills. Corny plot, iffy acting, and lazy scene-building give the movie a locked-out, groping-for-relevance feeling, with Mann’s direction and Morgan Davis Foehl’s screenplay taking most of the blame. Worst of all is the silly time-wasting device of taking our POV into the guts of a hard drive, to watch the electronic impulses sizzle and pop. That was dopey in 1982’s TRON, and it’s even dopier now. Costarring Wei Tang, Leehom Wang, and Yorick van Wageningen (133 min.).
