It seems to me that real programmers, for example, like the ones that created my favorite Utopia p2p application, look a little different and are engaged in completely different things. They do not seek to harm users, but rather try to help keep personal data safe.
**It’s about the virtual terrorism and fighting back it in the same way.**
This is the story of the United States and China, that also involves some of the southeast Asian nations when the story takes us there. So this tale is about an explosion at a Chinese nuclear plant and followed by the investigation conducted by the US and Chinese collaboration, the cops hire a convicted hacker to fast up the process and to nab the culprit who was behind the power plant disaster. These people begin their hunting by tracking the clues to the different locations and where they finally land and how it all come end told in the rest of the film.
I felt it was a too much realistic presentation. Like a documentary film quality, but full suspense filled story that stretched to over two hours. So sometimes it was very boring, because slowing down in any big development. At a time, some of the important scenes accomplished so fast like most of the action sequences. It mainly revolved around hacking plot, but was not that intelligent, so can be understood by everyone.
Initially I disliked those circuit board graphics, which I thought was a good detail, but too much for a film like this and it never looked so convincing. The film was average, but I anticipated lot better than that. I liked the actors though. Whether it was Chris Hemsworth or the Chinese counterparts, all were decent according to what the tale required. The film is not for everybody, particularly if you don’t like slow narration, you should not consider it to watch. But the film is not bad for once viewing.
For Michael Mann completists only
Wow, I’m in shock.
I didn’t know anything about this film before watching it, I just about made it alive to the end and I see the director’s name – Michael Mann!
One of the most interesting visual stylists and sound innovators, great story teller and action director … Heat, Last Of The Mohicans, Thief, Manhunter, Miami Vice are among my favourite films, and are films that I can always watch, no matter what mood I’m in they just grab me because they’re so well made … and then there is this turkey which is like a terrible Chuck Norris B-Movie. Awful, ridiculous script, terrible acting, dreadful characters, dumb dumb dumb.
While I was watching it I had thought the director was heavily influenced by, and ‘ripping off’ Michael Mann’s style – the night-time yellow lighting, lots of hand-held, the quick brutal violence and gun sounds. And I wish I could have enjoyed that aspect of it because Michael is still the best at those, but every other aspect of the film is so bad that I just wanted it to end.
Blackhat is another fantastic Michael Mann movie, and here is why
I have been looking forward to Blackhat for a couple of months now, and was able to see the movie on the am showing on it’s first full day. What a thrill ride! Before I go into the details of why I loved this movie, I should point out where my perspective on a movie like this will be different than most, as reflected in some of the bad early reviews.
I have a Bachelors in Information Systems and a Masters in Information Security Assurance. I have worked in technology for 18 years now, the last 5 of that almost exclusively in the security end of the tech pool. Based upon my experience in the field and my recent exhaustive research into information security, I found the film to be a refreshing change from the typical rehashed Hollywood fantasy that is put out regarding anything with a computer chip installed.
The problem with how computers are depicted in most movie in television is that the capabilities of computers are completely overstated or just plain irrational. It is as if directors think technical hyperbole will make up for a lack of everyday viewer sophistication with computer science. I get that the majority of the population hasn’t studied computers as a major and most know only as much as they need to to get online and send emails or watch Youtube. This is completely understandable.
However, with technology being so ubiquitous in today’s world, I am a bit astounded at he flack a director gets when he attempts to use realistic computing in a movie. With all of the Androids, iOS devices, multiple computer households, and the increasing popularity of Linux operating systems, one would think that the average computer IQ of America was much higher than it was 20 years ago.
In reality, if computers are depicted in realistic terms in film, most people just wont get it. I blame this partly on shows like Star Trek and Star Wars (which I love, for what they are) that fantasize what computers may be like in 200 years. I also blame it on the epidemic of fantasy movies that seem to base nothing on reality but continue to rake in hundreds of millions of dollars from movie goers world wide.
At the end of the day, Michael Mann did a FANTASTIC job of depicting the real life of network engineers and computer scientists in this movie. Commands entered on screen followed conventional Unix command line format and were syntactically correct. You could tell Mann had done his research and hired true computing consultants in the writing of the script.
In addition, the attacks on the PLA systems that run the pumps used to cause the reactor meltdown and later planned for the mines was almost flawlessly realistic. That is in fact how those systems work and how attackers would compromise them across the Internet. Further, the types of attacks are entirely plausible given real world research conducted by the NSA, Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and others. In addition, passing malware through PDF files by email is one of the most prominent ways that attackers take over computers in the real world, but viewer comments indicate they believe this to be too silly to be believable. Well as a security analyst, I can tell you to believe that scenario happens millions of times every year But, because we didn’t have excessive flashing lights and cartoonish villains with a master plan to take over the entire world, the movie gets panned.
The reviews for Blackhat remind me of those for Miami Vice. In each instance, extensive research was done into the worlds of the criminals that served as the basis for the lead characters. But too much realism tends to bring out the boo birds who would rather focus on comic book heros that shoot lighting out of their eyeballs or fly around in steel suits too impossibly heavy to be powered by anything short of a large nuclear reactor while fighting off giant skyscraper-sized space worms.
Perhaps audiences would rather have compete fantasy in their movies. Perhaps we cannot appreciate anything that attempts the least bit of realism. However, I absolutely loved Blackhat for the same reason I loved Miami Vice. Michael Mann made an adult movie largely based upon fact that requires minimal amounts of escapism while requiring the viewer to use their intellect and actually think during the movie. For his efforts, I applaud him.
Lastly, this movie should serve as a warning to all those who are unaware of the rampant security issues that the US (the whole world actually) faces in this day and age. From a security analyst’s perspective, the realism was welcome cautionary tale that needs to continued to be told until the general public gets it.
