LOG ON. HACK IN. GO ANYWHERE. STEAL EVERYTHING.
Ace hacker Stanley Jobson (Hugh Jackman) is hired by the unreliable Gabriel Shears (John Travolta) to break the electronic security that protects government funds containing billions of dollars. There are interesting features in Travolta’s character; this criminal intends to use the money to fight terrorism and protect America. The movie opens with a mighty explosion shot and there are other action scenes that get your adrenaline going. It’s never boring, but the story is remarkably uneven and can’t really convince anyone of anything.
2001-U.S. 99 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Dominic Sena. Cast: John Travolta (Gabriel Shears), Hugh Jackman (Stanley Jobson), Halle Berry (Ginger Knowles), Don Cheadle, Vinnie Jones, Sam Shepard.
