About this movie

In this modern epic, Kim Nguyen exposes the ruthless edge of our increasingly digital world. Cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of High-Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions. But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point with their quixotic adventure. Constantly breathing down their necks is their old boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a powerful, intoxicating and manipulative trader who will stop at nothing to come between them and beat them at their own game.

A very well written story, accurate and somewhat sad. It shows again how money can destroy the best of us, well worth the rent. I wish it would have a different ending but I guess that is the optimist in me. Not a bad movie but not the best. And definitely not a waste of time.

I was spell bound! Coming from the COM industry working wired and wireless with “The Players” was too realistic. Hummingbird Project is an excellent blow by blow business case. It’s is not a one time affair but the scenario repeats across the board. Hats off to the plot, and the acting!

Entertaining, realistic, unpredictable. I wasn't sure what to expect but Hummingbird was a very good movie.
