Black Hat

Chris Hemsworth    d/ Michael Mann

For some reason Mann put the biggest obstacle to appreciating this film right up front: who the hell casts CH as an ultra-nerdy computer genius? This guy stands 6'4", is impossibly a movie largely set in the Far East he towers over everybody around him. Will anyone really accept this actor as a pasty-faced cellar dweller?

Other than that the film was a bundle of re-hashed tropes that might work for really young boys...lots of running, shooting and fighting...but for me it was a big yawn.

Mann's a long way from Heat with this one. Pure product.
