Michael Mann is one of our all-time favourite directors.

We can basically recite the entire script of Heat from memory. No joke.

Blackhat, Mann's newest film, sees him in somewhat familiar territory - a cyber-terrorist is planning attacks across the globe. So what's the best way to catch a hacker? By using another one to trap him.

Enter Thor, sorry Chris Hemsworth, who's working with the Feds in exchange for a commuted sentence.

Mann's choice of cinematography - hand-held, digital video - isn't for everyone, with some people accusing him of looking amateurish.

We'll admit, it takes some getting used to, but it works out. Just look at Collateral, for example.

Blackhat lands in Irish cinemas in early 2015.
