Crypto thriller with Kurt Russell debuted in New York City
The Crypto movie with Hollywood star, Kurt Russell debuted on Friday April 12th in New York City. The movie is seen as the first professional movie covering the cryptocurrency space.
The movie features a young man caught in a conflict between Wall Street, the Russian mob, Bitcoin and lots of guns. The storyline looks action packed, however the movie could be a hit or miss at this point and according to some reviews it seems to be more of a miss.
Accoding to the LA Times, some of the first reviews are mixed at best.
'The characters all feel like they’ve been copied and pasted from hundreds of other movies that end with armed standoffs in some featureless field or warehouse. The coveted currency may be shiny and new. The machinations of the heroes and villains are so old they creak.'
Another review said that this movie has a noir look at cryptocurrency in 'small town America'. 'Morality vs money, death of small town morals by cyber thieves. Basic family values pitted against large corporations and technology.'
'If you gotta watch it then watch it with full concentration. It helps to understand the plot when you are a crypto buff', another review reads.
