Full synopsis »
Mercury Rising is original, suspenseful, and thrilling. The combination of well-known actors like Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, and even Miko Hughes is great! There's lots of action and not much swearing. The only downside is the basis of the plot is the same as many other movies: An FBI guy goes against the rules so he's a fugitive the whole movie. Oh, and Alec Baldwin, despite being the main bad-guy, does not have much of part. Nevertheless, Mercury Rising is a great suspense thriller! Full movie review »
