Cryptocurrencies reached Hollywood: full-length film about digital money called “Crypto” debuted on Friday in New York City.
The cast includes big names such as Kurt Russell, Alexis Bledel, Luke Hemsworth, Jill Hennessy, and Vincent Kartheiser. The storyline is based on the laundering of real money through the cryptocurrency exchange BTC-e, which does not exist in reality.
In the story a promising young man who returns to his hometown and accidentally becomes a witness to a money laundering operation. Since then his life and life of his family is at stake.
The film received a large share of criticism. The editor of the LA Times portal wrote:
“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.”
According to critics, the work on the film requires real talented writers and great Hollywood mastery, which this cryptocurrency picture lacked.
However, at the moment “Crypto” is the newest film about cryptocurrencies in the field of cinema, so fans of digital money will have something to do with in their free time.
