Highly Suspect Reviews: The Hummingbird Project

The Hummingbird Project Movie Review


Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgård are cousins who work in high tech but they are tired for working for someone else (namely, their boss played by Salma Hayek) and they want to strike out on their own with the idea of a physical fiber optic line laid between Kansas and Wall Street that would increase communication time by one microsecond. Which, I know, doesn’t sound like much but when it comes to stocks trading, that’s an eternity and billions of dollars. Hayek smells blood in the water and so the two have to stay one step ahead of her and battle against time to get their project finished. Sounds like maybe a heist movie? A wacky comedy? At the very least something based on a true story? It’s none of those things. As to what it IS, you’ll have to listen to Ben, Chris, and Frank in their review.



Directed by: Kim Nguyen

Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Salma Hayek, Michael Mando
