Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Despite its star power and bulging budget, this is not your typical Hollywood action suspense thriller. Instead, it's a shade darker with a well-written script rife with conspiracy conjecture. Bruce Willis' pairing with a child prodigy actor was perhaps a foreshadowing of 1999's immensely successful The Sixth Sense. The young Miko Hughes gives a remarkable performance as Simon, Willis' autistic charge, and he and the Hollywood star work well together. While the story is not without holes, the film's bullet train pace offers little time to ponder them and the plot culminates cohesively. Alec Baldwin wades deep into his hard-boiled character and does particularly unforgettable work in a priceless tete-a-tete scene he shares with Willis. Harold Becker's keen adaptation of Ryne Douglas Peterson's Simon Says is also of great help to the film, as is Becker's use of the murky streets of Chicago, which underscores the shadowy content of the narrative. When all is said and done, Mercury Rising is a thoroughly plausible suspense thriller in which the stars don't outshine the story.

    Typical Bruce Willis action movie

    I'll buy any Bruce Willis action movie, and this is one of those. Not as much a shoot-em-up as Die Hard, but you get the idea. Bruce Willis as the good guy, protecting the innocent, in this case an autistic kid. Willis is his usual don't-do-it-by-the-book character. The kid is, by the way, played by a very fine young actor who does an excellent job with that difficult role. Alec Baldwin does a great job as the bad guy. So for action movies, this is a good one. Not a total roller-coaster ride, but it moves right along and has a good plot and good acting. I admit that it's over the top as far as believeability, but it's a MOVIE! It's by Hollywood! If you're looking to escape into something like that, then go with this one.
