Normally, a Michael Mann movie wouldn't open during the dregs of January. So, you can imagine the amount of curiosity and anxiety surrounding Blackhat, his cyber-thriller starring Thor star Chris Hemsworth.
I suspect I will be in the minority for liking it. To be sure, I like it with massive reservations but, good heavens, what a gorgeous movie. Three absolutely ace action sequences combined with a generally propulsive, hypnotic sense of mood and movement: That's (just barely) enough for me to recommend this otherwise disposable genre offering.
I reviewed Blackhat for Screen International.
