From Vincenzo Natali, the visionary director of Cube, comes a minjd-bending sci-fi thriller that will keep you guessing until its final twist. Morgan Sullivan (Jermey Northam) is an out of work accountant seeking an escape from his lacklustre existence and his overbearing wife. He becomes a company spy for the multinational corporation Digicorp, where he assumes new identities in order to secretly record information for his ruthless boss. Morgan encounters the elusive and beautiful Rita (Lucy Liu) who reveals that he is being brainwashed. Rita offers him anti-brain washing drugs and MOrgan is forced into working for rival company Sunways. As a double agent Morgan is having difficulty distinguishing reality from the visions that plague him. His only hope to be saved is Rooks, Rita's boss, but first Morgan must complete a final assignment more deadly than anythin that come before.

The brainwashing scenes are brilliant, where a group attends lectures on subjects like "processed cheese" and "shaving cream distribution", and in paranoid moments makes me wonder what might be really happening to our brains while watching the average news/entertainment + advertising fare on our televisions.
These scenes are a little like the 1962 "The Manchurian Candidate", only using futuristic technology.
Jeremy Northam is terrific as "Morgan Sullivan", whose reality gets distorted and personality split into several identities. His confusion and fear are believable, and he handles the few action sequences with aplomb. Lucy Liu is strong and beautiful as the mysterious Rita, whose coded telephone number is Job 13:17, "Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears".
Vincenzo Natali directed this award winning film with stylish flair, a sleek sophistication, and with excellent pacing and some heart-thumping tension. The cinematography by Derek Rogers is marvelous, with a rather stark look, and the score is atmospheric and lovely, by Michael Andrews.
Intriguing, well acted, and with fascinating imagery, this is more of a mental adventure than the typical "blow 'em up" action film, and deserves being seen more than once for full appreciation.
No graphic violence, no nudity, and only the occasional four-letter word make this film suitable for a large audience.
Total running time is 95 minutes.
Jeremy Northam was an excellent choice as the lead role. He looks like your average joe and that's exactly how he plays it. It's a stroke a genius to do this as it draws the viewer (a real life average joe) right in and creates a sense of empathy for the main character.
The plot was excellent, incredibly refreshing, and the film had a cool feel - although some of the CGI was a bit naff.
This film is a rollercoaster ride and will keep your interest right up to the credits.
This film is excellent and has a feel similar to that of 'The sixth day'. It blends thriller with sci-fi in a world where companies spy on eachother to find out secrets. Acting is top notch from everyone. (Fans of cube might recognise David Hewlett as Virgil Dunn.)
That said, Cypher is not a film for somebody who wants non-stop actin. Go watch 'The Matrix'. The film has quite a bit of story and character development and an ending that kinda suprises you! All special effects are handled proffesionaly and nothing looks out of place, making Cypher look like a high budget blockbuster which i dont think it was.
If you liked 'Cube' then you will probably enjoy more of Natali's work and i would say this is a pretty damn fine movie. It is probably worth getting the rubbish one disc edition if all else fails but really try and snap the two disc one up as it looks extremely cool and has special features such as a commentary track with this inventive and brilliant Canadian director.
The next Natali film will be 'Splice' coming sometime in 2009. Hope all goes well. I know it will.

same director as the 'Cube' identity and digital espionage are the themes. The only real cyphers are the women's parts they'e not allowed to impact noticeably, not even Lucy Lui.. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Amazon Customer

Watched this with two of my teenage kids. We all got drawn in to the story, which is simple but has a couple of surreal episodes. The lead actor is great. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Mr. James F. Forrest
