This lackluster corporate-espionage thriller doesn't give one much to be scared of


An ambitious mobile-phone engineer (Liam Hemsworth) becomes a pawn in a corporate espionage battle between two rival CEOS (Gary Oldham and Harrison Ford), in this not-very-thrilling thriller from Robert Luketic. If it weren't so obtuse and dull, it could almost be a parody of similar slick films. It features, of course: the nail-biting downloading of files; a zillion-dollar shiny-angled apartment; a chase through a restaurant kitchen; a curmudgeon in a ball cap; and rousing dialogue like, "We're gonna use what they taught me to destroy what they built." Strictly late-summer filler.
