The Numbers Station does not add up

numbers station

I will refrain from beginning this review with the opening phrase, “For starters” because I try to find more positives than negatives, but the film, The Numbers Station starring John Cusack as a CIA agent protecting a facility used to send out secret codes is pretty hard to imagine. This is a straight forward action-thriller that does not have any good twists. The biggest surprise was that the film never provided one for audiences. Malin Akerman and Cusack have a screen presence, but their chemistry never materializes because both of them are playing characters that audiences could care less whether they live or die. This code is easy to crack and The Number Station does not add up to a good thriller. Most people will watch it because it is on Netflix, but then forget it as quickly as they can type their password.

    Having read this I thought it was extremely informative.
    I appreciate you spending some time and effort
    to put this short article together. I once again find myself
    personally spending way too much time both reading
    and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
