The biggest business failure of star Chris Hemsworth’s career has finally found its audience.
‘Hacker’ (Blackhat), the cyber-thriller from director Michael Mann (‘Public Enemies’, ‘Collateral’), became one of the most viewed movies on Netflix this month.
Underestimated in theaters, the film appeals to streaming subscribers.
Several people went to defend the production on social networks. Check:
Hacker (blackhat in the original), who featured on netflix. There are viola davis, chris thor and a few other Chinese actors.
The story continues in a hateful way … but now that we see the end … haha

I went to watch this Netflix “Hacker” movie after reading the reviews and I was already scared. But it wasn’t even one of the worst. The action scenes were ok. The story is a bit crazy! Positive point: performance of Viola Davis and Chris Hemsworth

I’m done watching Hacker on Netflix.
How did a movie starring Viola Davis and Chris Hemsworth fail at the box office?
Moreover, this is not a bad movie, quite the contrary.
Bad disclosure? I didn’t even know this movie until now
It’s curious how Netflix is at the same time able to secretly release some of its original productions and turn movies that were completely ignored years ago into hits. This is the most recent case of Hacker (2015), the Michael Mann film starring Chris Hemsworth.

When the film hit theaters in 2015, it raised a paltry $ 4 million and became the 13th worst opening in history for a film that opened in more than 2,500 theaters in the United States.
The budget was $ 70 million.
In the plot, Chris Hemsworth plays a hacker arrested for committing cybercrimes but removed from prison to track down the man who stole his code and invaded the internal system of a major American bank, causing a series of dramatic events on the international stock market.
