If you happen to die a few years after the wedding, he’ll even attend your funeral and give a speech about you. Enter Josh…

The hackers in Mann’s movie damage a Chinese nuclear power plant, mess with the commodities market, and command a small cell of badass, ruthless militants. Perhaps blackhat is too nice a term to describe the entity behind this plot.  In order to figure out who attacked their power plant,…
