A pretty solid and engaging little thriller. Tonally it was a bit uneven, but man this and The Art of Self-Defense might be some of Jesse Eisenberg's best work to date. Really loved the brother dynamic he had with Alexander Skarsgård who is also pretty great in this. Salma Hayek looked sexy as hell and was a lot of fun as the villain too. The performances definitely stand out more than the movie itself though which is probably why I kind of forgot about it.

I liked this a lot, great cast, Hayek is her sexy self and Skarsgard and Eisenberg are great in their roles. Just recently I only heard about the concept of high frequency trading and was interested to learn some more and this film touches on the subject nicely. Its well paced and the stakes are ever present. For Eisenberg's character to have a terminal illness, it felt a bit as too much of added drama, but it's an entertaining piece overall.
