Set within the world of global cybercrime, BLACKHAT follows furloughed convict Nicholas Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth), and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta. As Hathaway closes in, the stakes become personal as he discovers that the attack on a Chinese nuclear power plant was just the beginning. Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral) directs the propulsive action-thriller.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Thematically timely but dramatically inert, Blackhat strands Chris Hemsworth in a muddled misfire from director Michael Mann.

Common Sense Says
Intriguing but overlong thriller gets pretty violent.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Blackhat -- director Michael Mann's action thriller about a hacker (Chris Hemsworth) who goes after a ruthless criminal -- is filled with intrigue and deadly action sequences. Cars explode, sometimes with people inside (one scene is particularly wrenching), characters are stabbed (including a gruesome sequence involving a screwdriver to the head) and shot, and the camera lingers on bloody bodies. There's also some swearing, including "f--k," as well as social drinking, smoking, and making out, with sex implied (but only bare backs are shown).
