  2. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Blackhat

    Hemsworth is an unlikely hacker... The ending at the Malayan festivity is rather off-putting: the people in the procession are treated by the filmmakers as mere décor: no natural reaction to the shoot-out visible.

    sometimes i just need to watch this movie when i get home from work at 3am

  4. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Blackhat

    Ultimately, like Hemsworth, the film is too big and unwieldy for the purpose it should serve, but there are moments of magic within it. Visually Mann excels, the radical and the classical styles intertwining. It's just a shame that the script is so stock standard and banal.

  5. Steve G.'s rating of the film Blackhat

    Chris Hemsworth plays a computer hacker. In Michael Mann's next film, Eddie Deezen plays a bouncer.

  6. pluviosity's rating of the film Blackhat

    I don't know either it's overdramatic or underdramatic, perhaps both. Subplots and the characters development were just non existent, annoyed me much, because I love this line cast! The only things good thing were the alias 'Ghostman' and the name Bank Rya.

  7. bryanvmh's rating of the film Blackhat

    The new and improved Manhunter: people become the data that speeds through the tubes (alleyways) of urban cityscapes while indistinct forces run after them. A globetrotting movie that is actually About globalization and the individual's position as a data point to be cultivated and mined. Great digital cinematography, ridiculous plot, and Chris Hemsworth hacktafisting the internet.

  8. James Mackin's rating of the film Blackhat

    I don't really understand why this didn't get better reviews when it came out. It's a hoot, it's a very Michael Mann film. Do as a double feature with another Michael Mann film for full effect.

  9. J. O.'s rating of the film Blackhat

    In a sea of tepid performances, there is an island in the form of a hero with a very convenient knowledge of everything. Around that island there is floating debris, not quite reaching land - but also not quite lost at sea. Things such as a beautiful neon palette, or good run-and-gun action thrills. In the end, the better elements are caught in limbo. It generally feels bloated and half-baked.

  10. mubianer's rating of the film Blackhat

    Too many Hollywood cliches in the end, handsome hacker?? action scene taking place in the middle of exotic ritual.

  11. robertsandu's rating of the film Blackhat

    Everything a Mann movie represents is here. Hemsworth was a pleasant surprise. Very fit for the role in my mind, as Mann heroes always have that bit of "to good to be true" in them. They're ideallistically constructed, in both body and mind. Hemsworth projects self-control and maturity in a way that seems natural. He never looked awkward to me. If I ever see an ugly hero in a Mann film I'll know he lost the plot.

  12. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Blackhat

    (...) Ein bisschen wirkt Blackhat so, als ob Mann das Beste aus seinen früheren Filmen verquirlt und etwas aufpoliert hätte: Leere nächtliche Strassen, denen etwas Existentielles anhaftet, Skylines, Cops und Gangster inmitten post-industrieller Landschaften. Hier wird die reale Welt von der virtuellen geschluckt - aber welche Folgen hat das für den Menschen?(...)

  13. brick_bro's rating of the film Blackhat

    Visually sleek and emotionally complex. Super heavy on the sights and sounds, with a rightfully paranoid fixation on the invasive nature of technology. All of this is strung around another one of Mann's fantastic ensembles of imperfect heroes trying to do right in an uncompromising world.

  14. jchandleroc's rating of the film Blackhat

    An ode to the conflict that arises from the meeting of the immediacy of technology and the emotional/existential clumsiness inherent in being human. We are ensnared by the very systems that grant us unimaginable freedom of action. Mann to the core--roving aerial cityscapes, ultra-slick photography, and larger than life characters. The camera seems capable of going anywhere and doing anything. Loved it.

  15. Martin De Martin's rating of the film Blackhat

    Un altro film tutto da guardare per Micheal Mann, pieno di immagini e di significati, intriso di malinconie, di sguardi, di elogi ai perdenti. Poco valgono le parole: l'opera in sé a livello di sceneggiatura è pure alquanto canonica; la vera gioia sta nell'osservare e nel perdersi nel microcosmo di uno degli autori più dotati del cinema moderno, incredibile narratore per immagini, capace di rendere la forma sostanza.

  16. Victor Rodrigues's rating of the film Blackhat

  17. idon'tknow..'s rating of the film Blackhat

    but the ending could have been better.

  18. Yayo's rating of the film Blackhat

    Everything connected/happened/ended too soon

  19. film_lies101's rating of the film Blackhat

    This might sound like blasphemy to some, but I liked it better than Miami Vice

  20. Eingya's rating of the film Blackhat

    Blackhat seems like a movie torn between being a nuts and bolts techno-thriller and a moody Micheal Mann film, therefore ending up feeling a bit disjointed. There is surely stuff to like in it, as Mann is still an extremely solid director and there are a couple of memorable scenes in the film, but ultimately the script just doesn't seem on par with the direction.

  21. Brendan's rating of the film Blackhat

    Mann's acting decisions still confound, and his compositions are far less the center of the movie for the latter half but it's still damn good. The most exciting action sequence is the one inside the (likely highly inaccurate) computer

  22. Hyperion_333's rating of the film Blackhat

    Stare into the glistening pools of melted nation states.

  23. QuincyArthur's rating of the film Blackhat

    we're in a computer of imperfect choices

  24. Gustavo Razera's rating of the film Blackhat

    Mann's least distinguished outing to date still is a visually stimulating high-tech thriller, gorgeously shot in digital and boosted by strong supporting performances by Tang Wei and Viola Davis. If only the Master Aesthete of Urban Criminality had a less mundane script to work with...
