Director Michael Mann is known for some really good action films like Heat, Public Enemies and Hancock, but with Blackhat he is hampered by Writer Morgan Davis Foehl’s lackluster script, Stuart Dryburgh’s dark and dull cinematography and, most of all, the plodding editing of a team consisting of Mako Kamitsuna, Jeremiah O’Driscoll, Stephen E. Rivkin and Joe Walker.  And these guys usually do great work, so there must be some reason for this limp result, here, which, unfortunately, Mann has to own.

Despite these difficulties, Chris Hemsworth, Leehom Wang, Wei Tang and Viola Davis all make the best of their roles and Blackhat does have some interesting aspects revolving around cybercrime.

Nevertheless, Blackhat only gets a 2+ out of 5.
