Description

Mercury Rising

Art Jeffries, a renegade FBI agent, combats ruthless Federal agents to protect Simon, a nine-year-old autistic boy who has cracked the government's new “unbreakable” code. He can read MERCURY, the most advanced encryption code, as easily as other kids read English.

This ability renders the new billion-dollar secret code vulnerable, especially if enemies of the United States should learn of Simon's abilities and capture him. Program Chief Nick Kudrow orders the “security threat” eliminated, but Kudrow hasn't counted on Jeffries getting involved. As they are trailed by deadly assassins, Jeffries quickly realizes that no one can be trusted. Now time is running out and he discovers his only hope of survival is using Simon's special ability to bring their adversaries to justice.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Offers the viewer a pleasant surprise. " – Clarín Staff
  • " Fortunately, as directed with muscle and heart by Harold Becker, this tale of an angry die-hard and an orphaned autistic boy caught in a deadly government plot ranks at least as high as John McTiernan's first collaboration with an embattled Willis. " – Malcolm Johnson
  • " A solid '90s thriller. " – David Nusair
