DVD Review: 'Blackhat'

22 June 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ The evocation of a western villain may be a happy coincidence, but with cyber-thriller Blackhat (2014) Michael Mann remains recognisably concerned with the masculine duels around the law's fraying edges. Again, Mann focuses on characters racing along legal blurred lines; in this case, though, they are the kind that carry packets of shimmering data as well as the more traditional cops and criminals. In a bravura opening sequence, Mann reconstitutes the pulsating bird's-eye views of La from Collateral (2010) into a vision of a world ensnared in digital communications, before crash-zooming into a macro-metropolis as a piece of glowing computer code traverses the internal workings of a nuclear plant.

Blu-ray Review – Blackhat (2015)

22 June 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blackhat, 2015.

Directed by Michael Mann.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tang Wei, Viola DavisHolt McCallany and Wang Leehom.

Synopsis:

After a Hong Kong nuclear plant and the Mercantile Trade Exchange in Chicago are hacked by unknown perpetrators, a federal agent  proposes that the FBI work with China to find the cyber-criminals. The leader of the Chinese team, Chen Dawai, insists that convicted hacker Nick Hathaway be released from prison to help with the investigation. As Nick and his comrades chase their quarry, it becomes evident that the hackers have a sinister motive for their actions.

How can I put this.

I found my discovery that the Blu-ray itself was transparent far more interesting than anything its contents had to offer. That sums it really.

Can this really be from the same director who gave us Heat and Collateral? Those films were taut and powerful with fantastic performances. This however is barely coherent and worst of all… »

‘Blackhat’ Blu-ray Review

19 June 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Leehom Wang, Wei Tang, Viola Davis, Holt McCallany | Written by Morgan Davis Foehl | Directed by Michael Mann

About an hour into my viewing of Blackhat I was struggling to remain conscious from boredom. About an hour later I was glued to my seat, my eyes and ears on full alert for whatever the film was going to throw at me next. So you’ll understand when I say I have considerably mixed feelings about crime maestro Michael Mann’s latest film. It’s his first since 2009′s Public Enemies, a film the subject of which (John Dillinger’s battle against the authorities in the 1920s) I was intrigued by but was severely ill-served by its amateurish and distracting digital handicam cinematography.

While that film disappointed after the electric promise of Collateral (I didn’t catch Miami Vice, perhaps luckily), my expectations were set lower for Blackhat, a »

Shirt On, Or Shirt Off? Thn’s Top Jason Statham Screen Moments

29 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Say whatever you want about Jason Statham, but at the end of the day, you know exactly what you are going to get in Stath flick. Action, arse kicking, a couple of lovely dolly birds, his short right off and some kick-ass one liners. To celebrate the release of his new film Spy, which arrives in cinemas on Friday 5th June, we thought we’d count down our favourite Stath moments that have been captured on film over the years since his debut in 1998’s Lock Stock & Two Smokin’ Barrels. We love him. We all love him.

“Protection from what? Ze Germans?” Snatch (2000)

Stath plays… Turkish

Shirt On, or Shirt Off? – Shirt On

Possibly the film that secured Stath as a Hollywood leading man. His turn as Turkish is perhaps my favourite role that Statham has portrayed on screen. The film is full of one liners and fun interactions, particularly »

Michael Mann Lines Up Next Feature, Ferrari Story 'Go Like Hell'

15 April 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was not a fun experience watching Michael Mann's Blackhat. Not only was it a terrible film, but it was a terrible film from one of my favorite filmmakers, a filmmaker that seems to be moving closer to the lackluster output of Ridley Scott and farther away from the man that made the likes of Collateral, The Insider and Heat. So, just as my interest in Scott's The Martian isn't too high, I can't say I'm all that intrigued when it comes to Mann's next project, which Variety reports is the long-gestating "Ferrari" biopic, about Italian automotive mogul Enzo Ferrari. We first reported on this project back in May 2011 when word was 20th Century Fox would distribute Go Like Hell, a film based on A.J. Baime's "Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans" with a script by Jason Keller »

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx Reportedly Dating, Photographed Holding Hands

18 March 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Is love in the air between Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx?

The two's alleged romance started in August 2013, when the 47-year-old Annie star reportedly wooed the former Dawson's Creek actress, 36, at the 4th annual Apollo in the Hamptons bash. Now, more than a year and a half later, Us Weekly reports that the two have been discreetly hooking up, and has the first photo of the attractive pair holding hands.

In the flirty picture, Jamie is looking at Katie while she appears to be reading something on her phone, the two also playing a little footsie.

Photos: Sweetest Celebrity Pda

Katie has been single since splitting with ex-husband Tom Cruise in July of 2012. Jamie is no stranger to her ex, having worked with Tom on 2004's Collateral.

Us Weekly says Jamie and Kate's relationship "started as a fling," but "has since become a long-term attraction."

"Jamie is someone she can trust and have fun with," the magazine »

Remembering Actress Wright: Made Oscar History in Unmatched Feat to This Day

4 March 2015 9:02 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright movies: Actress made Oscar history Teresa Wright, best remembered for her Oscar-winning performance in the World War II melodrama Mrs. Miniver and for her deceptively fragile, small-town heroine in Alfred Hitchcock's mystery-drama Shadow of a Doubt, died at age 86 ten years ago – on March 6, 2005. Throughout her nearly six-decade show business career, Wright was featured in nearly 30 films, dozens of television series and made-for-tv movies, and a whole array of stage productions. On the big screen, she played opposite some of the most important stars of the '40s and '50s. It's a long list, including Bette Davis, Greer Garson, Gary Cooper, Myrna Loy, Ray Milland, Fredric March, Jean Simmons, Marlon Brando, Dana Andrews, Lew Ayres, Cornel Wilde, Robert Mitchum, Spencer Tracy, Joseph Cotten, and David Niven. Also of note, Teresa Wright made Oscar history in the early '40s, when she was nominated for each of her first three movie roles. »

Visceral Games Aiming For “Heightened, Dramatic Realism” In Battlefield: Hardline

27 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Visceral Games has made strides towards “heightened, dramatic realism” within its upcoming multiplayer-focused shooter, Battlefield: Hardline.

That’s according to Creative Director Ian Milham, who took to EA’s official blog to assure fans that although authenticity isn’t the studio’s primary concern, imbuing the player within an immersive, cinematic environment is the true goal.

“Everyone’s detector is finely honed for the real world. If it’s not believable, it’s immediately noticeable compared to what you can get away with in a fantasy or sci-fi environment.”

Further in the post, Milham touched upon some of the multiplayer maps within Hardline, and how their architecture and setting draw inspiration from some of the genre’s most memorable films, including Michael Mann’s Heat, Miami Vice and Collateral.

“For instance, on ‘Bank Job’ you can see how the first criminal team must’ve gone into the bank before the round starts, »

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 »

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...

It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »

Michael Mann: the crime drama kingpin on murder and malware

16 February 2015 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With Miami Vice and Heat he defined the genre in its contemporary form. Unsurprisingly he’s not short of a great anecdote

Shimmering neon reflected on the spotless bonnets of expensive sports cars. Sleek speedboats piloted across ice-blue water by Armani-clad criminals with strict moral codes. Bone-weary cops who view their underworld adversaries with professional respect. That’s far from the totality of Michael Mann’s career, but it sums up the stylish world with which his name is synonymous. For over three decades, the director has painted both small and large screens with beautifully lit pictures that dwell on the violent lives of terse, tough men. Men the calibre of Robert De Niro and Al Pacino in Heat, James Caan in Thief, Tom Cruise in Collateral, and even Don Johnson, who may have sported pastels in Miami Vice, but was a man with a guarded exterior who weighed his words. »

Long Voyage Home: "Blackhat" & Revolutions of the Digital Image

31 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

It has been about six months since my last entry in this supposedly regular column. There are various excuses I could make as to why, but rather than dwell on the past, I'd like to usher this "Long Voyage Home" onward into the future, in the trailblazing spirit of Michael Mann. I couldn't avoid writing on Blackhat, a film that I found as viscerally and formally thrilling as anything I've seen at the cinema in recent memory (and that includes Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au langage). I've seen it three times and plan to see it at least once more on the big screen before its (likely brief, considering its box office numbers) run ends. It has taken me multiple viewings to get closer to understanding all of Blackhat's moving parts, a journey in itself that I eagerly plan to continue.
