Brian King's screenplay make this a fast paced science fiction adventure very much of the style of Philip K. Dick.
A bit too clever and precious for it's own good, it's a fairly decent yet predictable near-future thriller.
High style and noirish overtones about mind control and brainwashing in corporate America. Nothing new there, so nothing new here.
It's a Philip K. Dick-style exploration of the fluid nature of identity, and a damned good one at that.
Just like the spies' mission as they hunt for secrets and significance inside massive corporate databanks, [Cypher's] point is unclear.
A cool little sci-fi flick with a terrific lead actor, a deadman's curve of a plot, and sleek cinematography.
Cypher isn't the most sensible or logical action thriller around, but how many action thrillers are sensible or logical?
...it declines into high-tech gizmos, whizbang hardware, and hairbreadth escapes, leaving the brain behind for the sake of sheer, overinflated thrills.
It might be just another "DTV dump" title for Miramax, but I'd call Cypher (easily) one of the best direct-to-video titles I've seen all year.
There are no discussion threads for Cypher yet.
