Asian take on Mr. Robot
30 June 2018 | by viclymSee all my reviews

Watching The Leakers reminded me so much of the ever popular TV Series Mr. Robot. With a corporate conspiracy being the basis with civil vigilantes taking matters into their own hands with different individuals dragged into the case.

Action-packed, decently paced and situations that made you question the very fabric of righteousness. For example, is it wrong to let a criminal go when the criminal's doing it for the greater good?

As intriguing as the plot may seem, I personally felt the movie suffered in terms of character development. People from different backgrounds were dragged into this case, being entangled in all these but yet you're supposed to care for them...unfortunately I don't. If anything, it felt like drama and action serves as the star of this movie with dialogues and characters are thrown into the mix.

With that said, isn't a disastrous movie. Actions were done in a very practical sense with almost very minimum CGI and all. A pretty decent movie to kill time with, just...don't get too invested into the characters...oh wait, you won't. Perhaps The Leakers would have worked MUCH better as a TV series where characters were given more than 10 minutes of development and back stories.

A great attempt but underwhelming, unfortunately.
