MER­CURY RIS­ING (1998) 7TWO, 9.30PM, M, AC­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Ad­e­quate lit­tle-boy-knows-too-much thriller with Bruce Wil­lis on au­topi­lot as the FBI agent (you know the type: dis­graced agent look­ing for re­demp­tion) fend­ing off oblig­a­tory nas­ties from a young sa­vant (Miko Hughes) who has cracked a top-se­cret govern­ment code. Been done be­fore, only much, much bet­ter, and it’s hard to take the smarmy vil­lainy of Alec Bald­win very se­ri­ously. This “govern­ment bad guys” story fails to im­press. ★★
