High level: Kite (4/5)

Movie is extremely stupid with horrid casting. Hugh Jackman as a hacker? Travolta as a villain super genius that you're supposed to love? Halle Berry as some sort of Travolta hirer, but not sure of her real purposes? The movie reaches too hard yet and tries too hard to be edgey...and somehow it's still interesting enough to watch and laugh at. And when you're inebriated, it improves because the movie is so absurd you can't stop hysterically laughing. Ridiculous and bad good. Watch if you're bored and you want something a little more edge of your seat.
