At one point, this was titled Mercury Falling, and that is a far more apt name for this ice cold thriller.

There's a lot of action but the thriller part of the movie never emerges.

Bruce Willis, an autistic kid and lots of explosions. You do the math.

Below average thriller. Not much action, not much character between Willis and the boy, but Baldwin is a good villain.

The uninspired story elements suggest that, in this current moviegoing cycle at least, even easier-to-please audiences want something new and surprising.
