The Australian actor playing Alex refers to himself early in the movie as an "adult" with an accent on the second syllable, while every Canadian-including Ukrainian and Russian immigrants-would place the accent on the first syllable.

Great, but not about hacking
I saw this movie a few years ago.
It was one of my favourites, before I became a software engineer.
It's a great story and chain of events that leads to the center piece.
A nice journey indeed, but this has nothing to do with hacking.
I am giving it a 7 because of nostalgia.
The real rating is more like a 5.9
