Offers the viewer a pleasant surprise. [Full review in Spanish]

I must admit I was underwhelmed by Mercury Rising - in fact the temperature actually sank.
April 23, 2020
There's such a lack of vision behind Mercury Rising that the title could have it going in either direction and it would still end up in the same familiar place.
April 21, 2020
The actors' serious faces are out of place in this hopelessly silly action conspiracy.
April 21, 2020
This should never have been made. Avoid it and pretend it wasn't.

Baldwin's Kudrow is a one-dimensional, humorless variation on his corporate tyrant in Glengarry Glen Ross.
April 21, 2020
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.
April 21, 2020
Standard action fare with a false overlay of social conscience.

The real treat is seeing Big Daddy Bruce playing the papa bear part to the little lost boy.

An anaemic time-waster you've seen before that fails to create tension or generate the suspense this genre cries out for.

The mercury may rise but pulses never do.

A solid '90s thriller.
February 23, 2012
Serves up some dramatic moments but never legitimately convinces.

At one point, this was titled Mercury Falling, and that is a far more apt name for this ice cold thriller.
July 17, 2007
There's a lot of action but the thriller part of the movie never emerges.
April 27, 2007
The always underrated Bruce Willis manages to suggest a therapeutic process at work more on his own character's anomie and alienation than on Simon's.
June 24, 2006
Such is the not very high concept which the fitfully interesting Becker has to dumb himself down to the point of ignominy to put over.
April 9, 2005
It travels a well worn path and makes zero effort to even delve into new territory.

Surprisingly watchable
