(2013) (Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Thriller: A young executive becomes involved in a corporate espionage plot in which one tech mogul attempts to steal a prototype cell-phone design from another.
- Adam Cassidy (LIAM HEMSWORTH) dreams of great wealth and being a mogul in the world of new and emerging technology. He doesn't want to be like his blue-collar dad (RICHARD DREYFUSS) who worked in a dead-end job all of his life and never got ahead. He gets his big chance to pitch a new cell-phone software technology to tech mogul Nicolas Wyatt (GARY OLDMAN). But the billionaire is not interested, and Adam and his team - including programming whiz Kevin (LUCAS TILL) and software expert Allison (ANGELA SARAFYAN) -- lose their jobs and funding. Frustrated and depressed, Adam runs up a big credit card bill using Wyatt Corp.'s discretionary fund.
Wyatt gets wind of this little escapade and uses it and Cassidy's drive to succeed to strong-arm him into infiltrating the company of his chief rival, Jock Goddard (HARRISON FORD). Adam's mission is to steal a prototype cell phone that will turn around the fortunes of Wyatt's company and once again make him the toast of the technology world. Wyatt's enigmatic assistant, Judith (EMBETH DAVIDTZ), is assigned to make sure Adam looks and acts the part. And his henchman, Miles (JULIAN McMAHON), is deployed to make sure he doesn't step out of line.
Adam, though, falls for one of Goddard's top marketing professionals, Emma (AMBER HEARD), a woman with whom he had recently had a one-night stand. He is also pressured by FBI Agent Gamble (JOSH HOLLOWAY), who shows him proof that previous corporate patsies of Wyatt's have ended up dead when they no longer served any purpose to him. Paranoia indeed sets in when Adam realizes he is being watched at all times and when the lives of his friends and father are threatened.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Older teens might be drawn to the film for its attractive younger cast members, especially Hemsworth who is in the "Hunger Games" movies.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For some sexuality, violence, and language.
