In the age of information technology, computers and smartphones aren’t the only things advancing in complexity and mobility. BITCOIN HEIST is a riveting action-adventure that showcases how speed, data, and collaboration can lead to the dazzling expansion of crime… and crime-stopping. When a cop vows to capture a person stealing billions of dollars in bitcoins, she entrusts several criminals to find the “Ghost” and bring them to justice.
Decorated director Ham Tran (Journey from the Fall, How to Fight in Six Inch Heels) brings together his chops as a UCLA-educated American filmmaker, with his growing versatility in the mainstream Vietnamese film industry, captivating the audience with a flair for the caper film as innovative as the cyber-crimes onscreen. Featuring special effects and a cast of stars that announce a new era of commercial Vietnamese filmmaking, BITCOIN HEIST wows and excites, keeping the audience guessing at every turn. –Aleya Zenieris
