The Hummingbird Project is in select theaters on March 22nd, 2019.
A pair of high-frequency traders go up against their old boss in an
effort to make millions in a fiber-optic cable deal.
Everybody had their own part to play in this film and I expected some crazy intense plot lines but by the end of it was a little let down with how the story ended up. But what it lacks in plot it certainly makes up for in character... Or more or less character development.
I saw the cast and at first was kind of shocked to see the lovely Salma Hayek involved with this project but was super excited when I realized that she played the power hungry boss of a multimillion dollar corporation. And I have to admit she did an absolutely wonderful job. She was really able to command that role in a way that was needed. But the rest of the cast really did do a spectacular job as well.
Jesse Eisenberg plays the “Team Leader” if you will and, a wonderful twist from some of his more recent films, is able to pull off the smooth talking motivated man with a plan vibe that he had recently somewhat missed the mark on, Dawn of Justice.
Alexander Skarsgard plays the genius who is going to make this whole fiber-optic “thing” work. He is definitely a little strange to say the least but the weird really starts to grow on you, especially when he starts to gain some traction.
Now as previously stated the big climax with this movie really isn’t in the plot of the film so while that sucks it doesn’t make the film unenjoyable. The leaps and bounds you’re going to see take place are going to happen with the characters themselves. And if you like films where you get the job done no matter what the cost with a big change of heart at the end well than this one just might be for you.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5
