Excerpt: The United States government has worked for decades on codes that couldn’t be cracked, but without fail, each one was broken down and translated. But now a new encryption code has been created, one that has been deemed unbreakable, even by high level code experts. The code is named Mercury and with this invincible encryption system, the government can communicate with no concern for spies or traitors.
Conclusion: Mercury Rising has two problems it can't overcome. It sensationalizes a devastating affliction for no good reason. More importantly, it covers the same ground that a thousand other films have trod. There's an intriguing premise buried underneath the clichés here, but the film never—ahem—rises to the occasion. Did you find this review helpful?
Conclusion: So "Mercury Rising" might not be the most amazing, thought-provoking movie but it is plenty fun for a good night out. The acting is strong, and there is plenty of action to keep us watching throughout. The video and audio is great...just not quite as perfect as some of the "newer" releases that are out there. Definitely don't get this one for the special features, but I can easily this one for fans, and those who want a good entertaining flick with great audio and video.
