'AN 'UNBREAKABLE' AGENCY CODE HAS BEEN BROKEN'
on 18 July 2014
This is a clever plot - we see 'Art Jeffries' (Bruce Willis) renegade F.B.I agent goes head to head
to protect a 9-year-old boy 'Simon Lynch' (Miko Hughes) who has cracked a high profile and
unbreakable code, it seems he can read a 'Mercury' advanced encryption code.
Shock waves and panic shake the NSA agency when it is realized a 9-year old has broken the
code, Head of Op's 'Nick Kudrow' (Alec Baldwin) orders that the threat be eliminated knowing he
was ordering the elimination of a 9-year-old disabled child.
What 'Kudrow' hasn't counted upon was that 'Agent Jefferies' would take it upon himself to protect
'Art' realizes the injustice of the situation, trouble is who can he trust, as he sets out to right the
wrongs, friend and colleague 'Tommy B Jordon' (Chi McBride) seems to be the only one, he also
befriends a complete stranger 'Stacy' (Kim Dickens) to watch 'Simon' while he try's to prove that
he and 'Simon' are not the enemy.
These are desperate times as 'Art' try's to avoid the pursuing assassins.
( A great portrayal by young 'Miko Hughes' of what is a widespread condition, Autism, strangely as
depicted in the film, many Autistic children have unexpected awareness)
This is an often exciting movie that contains many good action sequences and bravely tackles often
misunderstood disability issues, the film often poignant and touching.
'Bruce Willis' gives a typical performance, the kind of role that made him a household favourite.
Great Picture and Sound Quality ( A Good HD upgrade)
(Quite a while since I last watched this one, probably on DVD or even VHS (Certainly worth a re-visit)
