John Stalberg Jr.'s crime drama tries to put an energetic spin on the complicated world of cryptocurrency, but it doesn't pay off. It's a brave attempt, as so much of the subject matter revolves around passwords and computer code. But unless you have some existing knowledge of the topic, much of the detail of the various bank transactions goes over your head -- and you certainly won't learn anything about how cryptocurrency works.

The sporadic action sequences feel like forced jolts to maintain viewers' attention rather than being integral to the story. Audiences will be disappointed to find that Russell barely appears -- and when he does, his presence only acts as a reminder of the mediocrity of the rest of the movie. Crypto consists of a number of twists and turns. But they're either obvious or so awkwardly done that they feel implausible. Interesting subject matter, but badly executed.
