I watched this off the back of being completely stunned at 'The Accountant' starring Ben Affleck. Reading the consensus the story immediately grabbed me despite it sounding like a generic 90's action flick with a ever so slight twist. Unfortunately this is exactly that, oonly not even a competently made one. As usual you can count on good ole' Bruce to carry the film and i was surprised by the levels of depth to his acting in Mercury Rising, but it isn't enough to rescue a basic script, a bland performance from Alec Baldwin, a score that just didn't match what i was seeing, and very little action. What action there was wasn't even very good, just peer round a corner and shoot then screw up your face as the bad guy runs away action. A very disappointing film, theres lots of films which are exactly the same; just better made.

All big 80's action stars have made some very bad films and Bruce Willis was no different, it's not a terrible film just pretty boring, There's not allot of action, The plot was pretty silly and had some plot holes and things that never make allot of sense, Nothing memorable nothing we haven't seen before.

A pretty dull and generic movie which made hardly no sense.

not that bad the annoying, screaming kid was a bit much at times.

I thought it was very interesting and intense throughout. Part of it did have the 90s feel (like lighting and explosions), but it definitely kept my attention throughout.

This movie is so much better thavn the critic rating would suggest--Bruce Willis at his best, tough guy who cares with an autistic child under his care...

how dare you all get this to a 17 percent on rotten? I like great films great dramas..I understand this is just a mainstream movie but it's a kickass Bruce Willis flick that is one of my favorites for sure..I understand is not an important film but it's a good good movie. 17 percent total is just not representative if the redeeming good parts of this film of which there are many

I do not know why people gave this a bad review perhaps it's their ignorance with regards to Autism. The actor who played the Autistic child was very good, I know many autistic children and many can act exactly like this child did. I enjoyed the film, its plot is very plausible and some Autistic children are capable of complex mathematical puzzles. What is more, it would not be beyond dark sections of the NSA to want to assassinate anyone deemed a threat including a young child. The character Bruce Willis plays is also plausible as agents can quite often reach burnout and develop PTSD which is actually what he had symptoms of. Many times in reality people have decided to take a stand because one final event went too fare and this film depicts this very well.

this movie is in the same class as the Die Hard series, a must see for any Bruce Willis fan

I was not impressed with mercury rising which could also be called rainboy one bit where bruce willis plays an FBI agent who must protect autistic boy who has cracked a national security code in a puzzle magazine. I found mercury rising to be far fetched and redundant

Bruce Willis and Miko Hughes are pretty good in this, but there's not really much else to phone home about...

this was a pretty dumb movie. lots of questionable parts and stuff to make fun of. the only good thing was Bruce Willis being his usual awesome self, and I thought the kid did a good job. Alec Baldwin played a horrible villain. it was exciting at times but the way some of the scenes were done was just so bad.


the bank scene in the beginning when the son got shot, the SWAT guy unloaded like 25 rounds into him. it was so overdone. by that same logic, the scene where Willis slammed on the breaks in the van, he was breaking for like 20 seconds, hitting like 15 things on the way. it doesn't take that long to stop. the "final battle" scene was flawed in too many ways to describe (1 viewing)

Maybe this film is just showing its age, but Mercury Rising is predictable, boring, and disappointingly straightforward.

The sad part is Willis actually has made worse movies than this clumsy offering.

Visto ma come non averlo fatto, diciamo che tutto gira un po' male e non convince .

kind of the die hard version of rain man, it wasn't bad and had some really cool supporting performances. Otherwise, this was strictly by the numbers with Alec Baldwin chewing the scenery and Bruce Willis pursing his lips in anger, sadness, mirth, love and/or fear.
