Movie Review – Blackhat (2015)

22 February 2015 3:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blackhat, 2015.

Directed by Michael Mann.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Wei Tang, Viola Davis, Manny Montana, Wang Leehom and William Mapother.

Synopsis:

A furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners hunt a high-level cyber crime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta.

There’s a clash at the heart of Michael Mann’s Blackhat and I for one don’t like having to come to terms with the fact that this, his eleventh major release, is by far his weakest effort to date – 1983’s The Keep notwithstanding. That clash is style and substance, narrative and mood, character and action, and never has the director come so close to tipping the balance out of his favour.

This is the first movie Mann has directed based on someone else’s script and the rift this causes is evident throughout. The story and screenplay from first time writer Morgan Davis Foehl »

Review: Michael Mann's stupid cyberthriller 'Blackhat' strands Chris Hemsworth utterly

13 January 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are moments where a talented director makes a film so bad that you feel like you might need to go back to watch their earlier films just to make sure you weren't wrong when you liked them. "Blackhat" is the worst film Michael Mann has made since "The Keep," and I think given the choice between the two, I would happily watch "The Keep" again first. I am baffled by almost every moment of "Blackhat," and I'm struggling to make sense of where something goes this wrong. I haven't read the spec that Morgan Davis Foehl sold to the studio, but I know that Mann felt strongly that he deserved a co-writing credit on the film, one that the WGAw denied him after an arbitration. I'm not sure who to blame for the truly unfathomable narrative choices throughout, but I have to give Mann the final credit for creating »
