Blackhat with Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis and Wei Tang


Nicholas Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth) a prisoner serving 15 years in prison for cyber hacking. He is a genius coder who became very popular with the FBI because they needed his expertise. They wanted him to find out who the hacker is and their location.

He told the FBI agent if they commuted his prison sentence he would help them locate the Blackhat (a term for an evil hacker.) Someone, who does his evil deed just because he can. He is demonic and does not care what mayhem or harm he does to others.

American and Chinese government agencies are collaborating to stop the evil Blackhat before he carried out his entire plot to destroy the world.


Nicholas and Chen Dawdi (Leehom Wang) were college roommates at M.I.T. and Chen knows Nicholas is a coding and programming genius. And, with knowledge and opportunity because he is a Chinese M.I.T. trained official of the military given the job of locating the Blackhat. He wanted the best person working with him and that is Nicholas Hathaway.

After the deal sealed Nicholas is working with a FBI agent (Viola Davis) and Chen Dawdi and his sister (Wei Tang) who is a systems engineer. Their journey will take them from Chicago to Hong Kong, from bright lights to dim back streets.

This search will proved dangerous because from typing on the keyboard to facing hired killers is a risky business.

 Cyber Terrorist leave behind cyber finger prints because each hacker leaves something to identity them through their coding which will aid Nicholas in securing verification to prove their intrusion.

I cannot wait to see this movie with its intrigue, action, crime, drama and possible romance.

The Italian Job---Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton and Donald Sutherland (2003)



This is a film about a great Italian heist which takes place in Venice, Italy by a team of proficient thieves led by John Bridger (Donald Sutherland) who is a specialist safecracker and Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg) who is John’s protégé and also a professional thief. 

Charlie has been with John for many years; they enjoyed a great relationship---like a father and son.

John’s daughter Stella Bridger (Charlie Theron)lives in Philadelphia with a career as a vault technician and has begged her father many times to stop practicing his profession; but to no avail---there is always one more job.

All six team members are assembled in Venice to complete their last job of stealing 35 million in gold bars from Italian gangsters that stole the gold bar themselves. The other members of the team are Steve (Edward Norton), the inside man, 

Handsome Rob (Jason Statham) their wheelman, Lyle aka Napster (Seth Green) a computer genius and Left Ear (Mos Def) their explosive expert. The Italian job as they called it would be their last job, and everyone was already dreaming about what to do with their share.

With computerized planning, proficient timing, brilliant research and a skilled team with adaptability at a minute’s notice; the job finished on schedule.

Later Rob drove the team and the gold to the Alps close to the Austrian border where they stop to celebrate with wine; and John gave a toast praising Charlie and his excellent planning of their last job together. 

Everyone agreed with the words spoken by John; however, Steve had a funny look on his face. One might even conclude it was jealousy.

John and Charlie walked away from the team to talk in private. The rest of the team shared their plans of what they would do with their share of the money.

The team traveled on the icy bridge to the Austrian border when suddenly a jeep came facing them---then it stopped on the bridge and the jeep behind them stopped. Before anyone could think what was happening Steve pulled a gun and pointed it to Rob’s head and told him to take his hands off the wheel. Then, John told Steve they would find him---Steve shot John three times in the chest, without blinking once.

Charlie told Rob to drive and he did hitting the Jeep in front of them, then going over the railings into the freezing water. When Steve is satisfied everyone is dead---he leaves with his team of killers. John is dead and Charlie hates to leave him.

After telling John’s daughter about her father's death the team started to research and track Steve, because it is payback time. Revenge is motivated by hating and the retribution race is on for the team to find Steve.  

Charlie paid a visit to Stella to let her know they found Steve in Los Angeles and an informant said he sold a couple of gold bars to a dealer. He told Stella the team would be in LA after Steve, and asked if she wanted to help them. Charlie said he needed her skill on safecracking. He told her it was not about the money that John was like a father to him too.

Stella initially said no, but changed her mind and called Charlie to tell him she was in. She wanted to see Steve’s face when he was caught; and lost his precious gold.


They arrived in Los Angeles and began to work their plan against Steve. Steve would have other issues in the end bigger than the team’s punishment; because Steve killed Yevhen (Boris Lee Krutonog) the dealer that purchased the gold bars from him. Mashkov (Olek Krupa), Yechen’s cousin would revenge his death.
