BLACKHAT , directed and partly written by Michael Mann, “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” says the press info. Another cyberthriller? Will it be better than WHOAMI – KEIN SYSTEM IST SICHER or ETTOR NOLLOR? Well, Chris Hemsworth IS prettier than Gustaf Skarsgård (förlåt, Gustaf). I just hope it’s not too mainstream, not too superhero (one hack to save them all, one hack to bind them .. yada, yada) and not again with the same plot twist as the two aforementioned works. And: What WHOAMI did to illustrate the cyber world will be hard to top – it was more than brilliant. The BLACKHAT trailer shows a little too much gunfire and a little too few keyboards for my taste. But we’ll see mid January 2015, won’t we. Because Hemsworth 😉Blackhat_Hauptplakat
