    A stereotypical espionage thriller, The Numbers Station is competent enough but isn't very engaging. When a US secret intelligence base is attacked a CIA agent and a cryptographer have to hold off a strike team and regain control of the dispatch system in order to stop a series of assassinations. John Cusack and Malin Akerman lead the cast and give solid performances. However, the writing is rather poor and employs some insane logic in regards to how the CIA works. While it's fairly entertaining and delivers some thrills, The Numbers Stations is formulaic and predictable.

    An intelligent, fresh and high-octane edge of your seat thriller that's laced with explosive action and character development. A sharp and well-crafted movie with gripping performances. John Cusack and Malin Akerman are right on the money, have have engaging chemistry and give strong and rather soulful performances. Cusack hits all the right notes and shines. Akerman is charismatic and gives plenty of heart to her role. Liam Cunningham is terrific. Director, Kasper Barfoed keeps the films pace moving good and it keeps your attention firmly on the main characters in isolated locations to give a more claustrophobic feel. An explosively entertaining action-packed thrill-ride

    The code has never been compromised. Until now.. Mediocre movie! This movie is like those novels from authors you've never heard about sold at petrol stations and supermarkets, the kind of fiction that exists purely to shift a small portion of units to generate some kind of income. A potboiler, really. Just a way to keep food on the table for the screenwriter and add to the revenue streams of the film company, in some small way. There is precisely nothing exciting, interesting or original about this movie. It's just a copy-paste straight to DVD thriller flick about spies and stuff. Hire the cameramen, find some location to shoot it, get the actors there on time, let's get this crap over and done with and move on with our lives. That's all I got from the Numbers Station. Nothing but a money grab. This is why piracy exists, because film companies are so utterly uncompetitive. When the moral values of a longtime wetwork black ops agent is tested during his last operation, he receives an unfavorable psych evaluation. Now he is given a break and a seemingly uncomplicated assignment of simply protecting the security of a young female code announcer, code resources and remote station they are assigned to. After an ambush and one phone call later, it becomes a complicated fight for their survival.

    It wasn't great nor awful. It fell somewhere in between. I am usually biased when it comes to John Cusack films. I am and have been a huge fan of his for forever. In my opinion he never turns out a bad performance. He just has the misfortune of being in bad films. The movie reminded me a bit of Wanted. Not nearly as good though, but still worth seeing if you get a chance.
