The cast stars
Mindhack: #savetheworld follows a rogue computer programmer who has found a special program to hack into people’s minds. He pursues to use this newfound software for the good of mankind. However, this comes at a price when the program gets into the wrong hands. A nemesis who wants to use it for bad. The two clash and fight over control of the program and complete mind control, and therefore, human control.
With the advancement of technology, comes evolution of cinema to even broader heights. Hacking is not new to the industry, but perhaps, human hacking is. Or, at least, the concept is still fresh. We’ve seen this theme countless times, where technology geeks hack into different systems and software, or power-hungry scientists and government officials hack into other life forms (I.E. making insects and animals more aggressive and powerful). We’ve even seen cases where scientists or government officials have created advanced creatures, robots, or even super-humans.
Gorsuch’s film has this component that proves to stand out from the rest. It has connections to The Matrix and Fight Club. I can see this in the trailer. Using state of high-level technology and equipment and the extremity of human capability and power comes into play big time.
”We were blown away by the originality and timeliness of Royce’s directorial debut. This is one of the most creative and commercially relevant films in the marketplace that knows exactly who its audience is; Millennials and Gen Z”
