Air Force One this ain’t

Ambitious hotshot tech genius (a charisma-free Liam Hemsworth, aka “Mini-Thor”) is fired by a highly competitive cell phone manufacturer, but rehired to infiltrate a rival company and steal a high-tech thingy.

The film’s main hook is the participation of both Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman. Can that be bad? Fagheddaboudit. They’re just there to chew some scenery and collect a paycheck. Air Force One this ain’t.

And why ask the guy who makes fluff like Legally Blonde and The Ugly Truth to direct an industrial-espionage action-thriller? Pointlessly constructed, dreary, contrived and vapid.
