Movie Info

The "code" in question refers to a pivotal telephone number - 11 digits that, when dialed, will trigger a global apocalypse by instantly setting off catastrophic nuclear devices in four metropolises around the world. As this Russian-language thriller opens, two individuals find their lives, and futures, at the mercy of "The Code"; FSB Agent Darya (Anastasiya Zavorotnyuk) sets out to defuse the devices in question and render the 11 digits ineffective, while the psychotic Louis Devier (Vincent Perez) wants nothing less than to attain those elusive numbers and use them to completely wipe humankind from the face of the Earth. These two embark on a head-to-head conflict, in a transcontinental race against time that will carry each through such exotic locales as Norway, Malaysia and Italy. Moreover, the stakes are not simply political, but personal: Louis caused significant emotional and psychological grief for Darya by murdering her lover. Nevertheless, Darya is forbidden from enacting vengeance, and must focus exclusively on her mission at hand, however difficult the task.

Audience Reviews for Apocalypse Code (Kod apokalipsisa)

½

Apocalypse Code is an entertaining Russian action adventure from Vadim Shmelev.

Hovering at around 1 hour and 40 minutes, Apocalypse Code tends to fly by rather quickly. The pacing is moderate to quick as the scenes and locations come and go like that. While this does keep the film from dragging unnecessarily, it doesn't leave much room for depth in the story, which isn't that big of a deal. The story is linear and straight forward, but it does require some attention in the first half, because of the quick pace, to grasp onto what is happening.

There is a good amount of action and it is worthy of note. The editing and camerawork during the final fight is a tad on the unimpressive side, but it is still good.

Anastasya Zavorotnyuk is just gorgeous and her character fits nicely into the story. She looks confident in nearly everything she does. It is almost like watching a James Bond flick, but with a female lead. The rest of the cast is OK, with Vincent Perez pulling off a decent villain.

In the end, Apocalypse Code has an interesting enough story, good action, and a beautiful lead to make this a film for fans of action adventures.
