Another 'New Acquaintance Turned Maniac' Thriller
23 September 2016 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Luxury airline tycoon Mike Regan (Pierce Brosnan) launches an app which is the private jet equivalent of Uber. His multimedia presentation to woo investors is sidetracked by glitches which are quickly fixed by Ed Porter (James Frecheville) - a mysterious recently hired IT guy.

Regan is eager to show his appreciation to this new employee and invites Ed over to his estate and introduces him to his wife (Anna Friel) and daughter. While there Ed fixes the wifi, updates the home security system and even the GPS in Mike's car cementing his status as Mike's favorite IT guy.

Ed, who doesn't pick up on social cues readily if at all, thinks he and Mike are friends and envisions not only regular social visits with the Regans but also romance with Mike's 17 year old daughter. Numerous faux pas by Ed result not only in his being rudely shunned by Mike but by his dismissal from his job.

Ed, who has made a convincing act of normalcy is in fact a heavy drug user with serious mental health issues. He takes the impasse very personally and uses the access he had to Regan's business home to hack in and cause trouble. The angrier Mike gets the more he menaces Ed who responds by making the attacks more severe.

There is nothing special about any aspect of this film. It is a reinterpretation of the 'New Acquaintance Turned Maniac' thriller Hollywood has been doing for decades. It isn't even a good one of those.

The characters never develop into being multidimensional. The story is as predictable and facile as the ending
