Now, the cast…Liam was ok playing a desperate dude with big dreams but gets caught in a dangerous game pretty well. This boy could carry a movie with right stories. He is quite talented just like his brother ‘Thor’. It was nice to see Gary Oldman back on the screen with his posh English accent. Meanwhile, Harrison Ford looks like a prune out of the water. Damn ‘Indy’, you so old ready wey! These three main roles were well suited for them. The rest of the supporting cast, such a Amber ‘Johnny Depp’s current squeeze’ Heard, Richard ‘Jaws’ Dreyfuss, Josh ‘Lost’ Holloway, Julian 'Nip/Tuck' McMohan did a decent job too. The story was quite interesting to watch showing the story behind ruthless corporate world where ‘everybody steals from everybody’.

If you are into IT and want to learn few pointers on how to survive in the fast phase trade world, you might want to spend some time learning from the ‘big’ players from this movie. It might even give you some ideas to maneuver your way up the peak of success. Short cuts will only get you so far and it’s a scary drop if you don’t build strong foundation on your way to the top.
