Blackhat: Hack Attack
A Japanese nuclear reactor blows up.
The futures market goes kerflooey.
Uber-hacker Nick Hathaway is the white hat to connect the dots and stop the Blackhat. But he's in prison!
One ankle-bracelet and stern talking-to later and he's sprung.
What ensues is a hectic globe dash in pursuit of the evil-doer who's onto something bigger.
And he's off.
Maybe you, dear movie-goer, will figure out what the heck is going on. But don't waste your gray cells. The Movie Slut suspects that's not the point. As is happens, our hacking ace is also handy with an assault rifle—an action figure come to life to leave dead bodies in his wake. (After he's removed the pesky ankle bracelet, of course.)
Yeah, it's that kinda flick.
