Aussie Liam Hemsworth stars as an am­bi­tious tech­nol­ogy whiz who finds him­self liv­ing the high life af­ter be­ing black­mailed by his for­mer boss Ni­co­las Wyatt (Gary Old­man) into work­ing for and steal­ing se­crets from ri­val tech bil­lion­aire Jock God­dard (Har­ri­son Ford). They say: Sets it­self up as a sharp look at the amoral na­ture of busi­ness in ex­ec­u­tive suites but ends up re­stat­ing the ob­vi­ous. Good work from Old­man and Ford isn’t enough to make up for the lum­ber­ing screen­play. Wesay: This es­pi­onage thriller from Aus­tralian di­rec­tor Robert Luketic ( Legally Blonde, The Ugly Truth) would have played bet­ter as a cor­po­rate com­edy. Hemsworth’s lack of charisma doesn’t help. (Re­port, Page 12.) Run­ning time 108 mins. Screens at Nerang, Robina, Pa­cific Fair, Tweed City, Har­bour Town, Aus­tralia Fair, Coolan­gatta.
