Alex, an immigrant from Ukraine comes to Canada and becomes involved with an online criminal organization called Darkweb. What starts off as a way to help his parents financially, soon becomes a personal vendetta against the entire banking system, when his mother is fired from her job at the bank.
the main character, Alex, played quite well by Callan McAuliffe, meets with unusual luck in escaping detection and in meeting the right people to help him advance his standing in the organization. Of course, without coincidence and luck, we’d have few movie plots, so you can’t criticize the film for that. For me, the problem comes with his meeting with the female lead, Kira, played by Lorraine Nicholson. She has the appropriate hacking knowledge but she also has questionable connections that do not seem to make Alex as concerned as he should be. You could make the argument that love is blind except for the fact that Alex, inexplicably, has a complete lack of romantic interest in the enigmatic Kira. This relationship really needed to be developed more to understand the development of the plot, but, perhaps, the writers weren’t as knowledgeable about romantic relationships as they are about cyber topics.
