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.

I cannot recommend this movie. There are not any interesting characters, moments or insights. It seemed as if the directors didn't know how to use google to research even the most basic information about hackers. The use of narration throughout the film felt like I was watching an educational film in P.E. at high school. I cringed during this movie more than i did watching Adam Sandler's 'click' and 'big daddy' combined. Please don't waste your time with this movie. I can recommend the book "We Are Anonymous: Inside the Hacker World of LulzSec" on this topic.

TLDR: this movie gave me cancer.
