4.0 out of 5 stars Like my cooking skills, fast and tasteless..., 15 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Mercury Rising [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
The NSA has developed what they think is an unbreakable code. They ran a test to see if anyone can decipher it by putting it in a puzzle magazine.

Simon Lynch, an autistic boy, deciphers it and calls the NSA. The men in charge call their boss Kudrow, who is worried what might happen if this gets out, and orders Simon to be killed.

The man he sends kills his parents and leaves when the police arrive. The FBI send Art Jeffries to look for the boy.

Art finds Simon, and they go on the run......

In the nineties, Willis lost his star power a little, and every now and again, he starred in your typical generic action thriller. And like Striking Distance, Last Man Standing, and The Jackal, it's nothing special, but its a must for Willis fans.

As always in these types of movies, it starts with a set-up, this one leading to a bit of a meltdown for Art. He's involved in a robbery gone wrong and would you know it, it ends in a boy getting killed, thus Art will stop at nothing to protect Simon.

The rest of the film involves Willis and Hughes (who is excellent) on the run from your atypical assassin, with supporting characters getting killed every now and again, with only Chi McBride as a friend, as the police are after him too.

Baldwin is fine, but its little more than an extended cameo, with the two stars only meeting the once.

The ending is silly, but its a nice little thriller which won't challenge the brain, with a nice ending.

Plus, this film must hold the record for how many people actually duck when the main hero cries 'get down'.

It won't win Willis any more fans, but it does its job.
