A military man is enlisted into a mission to save Chicago United States from a terror attack.

A fantastic, emotional, movie. This has all the elements of quality which make a movie truly great.

I'm surprised I took next to no notes. There really isn't any actual "substance" to this film, in the sense that there are few references to people, places, or things. It's all one contained package that is surprisingly easy to lose time with.

A recently-ex-con world-renown hacker is swept into the well-planned efforts to fund long-term anti-terrorist terrorism.

A group of friends gets in deep and bumbles into crime to settle things.

Reminds me a lot of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) crossed with The Usual Suspects (1995). Overall it's fair, but not that great and absolutely not worth a second watch.

There is a blackout and shit goes sideways.

It's not bad, but I can see why people would give this 5/10. It's a fair movie. It's not compelling in the least, with characters I never really felt attached to. Maybe following multiple people worsens it.. cutting between them is jarring for me.
