In this modern epic, Kim Nguyen exposes the ruthless edge of our increasingly digital world. Cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of High-Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions. But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point with their quixotic adventure. Constantly breathing down their necks is their old boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a powerful, intoxicating and manipulative trader who will stop at nothing to come between them and beat them at their own game.

good movie all thectors are great.salma over the top but that is the reason I watched it.it entertains
Great concept, horrible ending. Being in the IT industry and a programmer by trade, I appreciated the research and also the (mostly) accurate attention to technical detail this film portrays. Note to writers: we coders “code”, we don’t have “codes”. And if you accept the premise of the film that the link speed is more important than anything else, you may enjoy this movie which seems itself to double its own acceleration all the way to a very predictable and disappointing end.
Good Concept Bad Execution The idea of the movie was good. But the storyline was very scattered and pointless. There was a lot going on but nothing at the same time.
Unpleasant It‘s not that much of a waste of time but it‘s definitely too much of a waste of time.
Disappointing but great idea Salma Hayek was miscast. Loved the concept, but not the story. It was disjointed. LIked the locations. Didn't like the music selections. Left me empty.
