Goofs

The Australian actor playing Alex refers to himself early in the movie as an "adult" with an accent on the second syllable, while every Canadian-including Ukrainian and Russian immigrants-would place the accent on the first syllable. In other words, he was using an American accent after having grown up in Canada. See more »

No real hacking, and the hacking is kindergarten stuff at best.
4 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

It was entertaining enough that I didn't turn it off, but barely. If you know anything about hacking or computers in general then you will laugh your butt off at these actors who just spit out hacker terms without knowing what they mean (and it's obvious). They should have just went the route of having these actors be "script kiddies" and use that as the platform. Maybe change the title to Script Kiddies as well. At least then it would be believable.
