Goofs

While hacking the Blackhat servers, Hathaway forces a boot in single mode and makes a backup of the whole userspaces to a NTFS partitioned drive. The system is running an old kernel from 2006 (release date of 2.6.18 kernel) and luckily it already supports NTFS partitions. It would be wise to use a partition that has full support on unix filesystems. If the kernel was older, he would need to figure out another way to transfer the data. See more »

Not exactly perfect but surprisingly good
25 October 2015 | by igorfazlyev-01869See all my reviews

This film currently has an undeservedly low rating here on IMDb so it was with a bit of apprehension that I sat down to watch it and it proved to be much better than I had expected. The reason for the low rating I think is that the audiences today got too used to dumb 'action packed' crap like Taken that consists of little more than clichés and boring camera work. This movie dares to be different, it dares to be slow paced, watching it is like reading a book, it actually requires a mental effort on the part of the viewer to keep track of what's going on and naturally people these days don't like that. This film is from a different epoch, it's just too big and too multi-layered for the short attention span of the modern viewer weaned on vine videos. If you want to get an idea of what this movie is like without spoilers - think Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Don't be discouraged by the low rating, it's just that slow-burn thrillers are not everyone's cup of tea these days.

It should also be noted that it's not just in its approach to story telling that this film dares to be different it's also in its cinematography. Once again, it feels like a film from a different time period that hearkens back to the classic noir movies of yesteryear, something like Three Days of the Condor.

And last but not least, it's quite refreshing to have a main character that thinks ahead rather than simply barging in and relying solely on the script writers to help him prevail in whatever situation they may find themselves in.
