out of 4 stars. 3. Footnote: "Cryptologists" are still being used today as mentioned on a recent 60 minutes segment with something to do with the NSA leaks. In the instance of war in general soldiers fighting onto the field are all pawns of whatever decisions the gov't decides since some wars are not necessary and the analogy of this movie is like a different type of pawn. A movie that is less than a hour and a half requires viewers to observe and actually "listen" to every single line that's been spoken, particularly between the characters of Cusack and Akerman since things that are missed may result in not liking the film altogether. This movie has remnants of 2005 "The Matador" with Pierce Brosnan since the main protagonists can never chose to leave from an agency who seem to have taken a hold onto both of their lives, and "28 Days Later" because of the musical score as well as the direction. Viewers are then wondering how or if they ever are going to get out of this situation, since both characters of Elizabeth and Kent can't leave this agency and at the same time people are coming after them. And after she makes several attempts to bond with Emerson Kent is when things start to happen where other people had also discovered there secret locked facility, and have killed the previous "cryptologist" worker as well as her security guard agent. The agency acknowledges this so they send him to some isolated area in England with a new assignment where he's being ordered to look after a woman who's good at decoding numbers and is labelled as a "cryptologist" or 'code breaker' her name is Katherine played by Malin Akerman. Kent then becomes emotionally bothered by this for he hardly sleeps, since he's a human being too for one of the rules upon joining this agency is that you're not permitted to show any emotion. And this witness gets killed too no matter what the circumstances are. The agency finds out where he's hiding out and they send Emerson Kent (John Cusack) to finish what he's started, but comes across an obstacle where there was a witness. At the beginning, he successfully executes 3 people at a bar with one person escaping. John Cusack happens to be one of those agents to perform this dangerous task which he could be killed in the process since it operates itself like a contract killing similar to what assassins or a hired hit man does. For it can be compared to the mafia except that the agents have a license to kill without any consequences whatsoever. which a person can't just leave once you're in. B. G. or the K. A. I. In this case, it's run by an underground gov't agency which agents are given orders to execute specific people assuming that the people that're targeted deserved to be killed- this practice operates much harshly than the C. "The Numbers Station" as the movie indicates is about people using numbers or codes which were used since World War II. And for the longest time, I was anticipating to see another current movie that can show this, and I was finally relieved that I finally saw another current movie where human life can be perceived as cheap and it happened to be this movie. Monday, December 2, 2013 (2013) The Numbers Station ACTION THRILLER I remembered a quote from one of my all time favorite movies which was from "Casablanca" and it was a response from Major Heinrich Strasser in which he replied to the Ingrid Bergman character "that human life is cheap"

the first one was way better, longer & very cute, this one was to short & not all that great, way to go on messing up a good movie!!!
Worth the watch. John Ritter portrays a very evil and despicable madman in this movie. It is based on a true story which makes it even more eerie. This is a very good movie overall. She then becomes suspicious of her ex husband and starts to remember things from the past that start to make her suspect her ex husband of murder. His 2nd wife was just 38 years old and died of something unknown and the first wife wonders why her ex-husband didn't give the doctors more time on the autopsy. This makes his first wife rather suspicious. Her ex husband rushes the doctors at the hospital and gets his 2nd wife cremated rather fast. Then her ex husbands new wife dies. She grows closer to her ex husbands new wife because they share the same illness. Then all of of a sudden her ex husbands new wife comes down with the same illness and has the same symptoms she has had. This a story about this woman who had this strange illness for like 14 years. Another good old fashioned Lifetime movie

The sets were very well done, and the locations were beautiful. Billie Piper seemed slightly awkward in this role. Cliche love story, but regardless, I still enjoy Jane Austen

icky Miller. B Sweet and endearing romantic comedy worth seeing for the sheer chemistry of the pair

While this does roll along at a fair old speed, is very watchable, and isn't really what I'd call even near to being terrible, but it still couldn't be more of a hollow, overly produced, and very silly experience even if it tried. With a fair bit of Will Smith's "Enemy of the state" this is a movie most high school students would alter Hitchcock's entire back-catalogue to be more like, ie take out character depth, almost all the tension, subtlety, and just hand over all the action by the bargain bucket load. In fact you might even deem it awesome, but if that's the case then you likely paid with your ticket using pocket money. And quite frankly if that's you in a nutshell then this is a good watch. Folk who always between the "boring talky bits" check their text messages and distract everyone around them with the annoying glow from their phone's screen. People who just want a big bang for every one of their bucks. The type of person who are far more interested in the popcorn and fizzy drink combo than the actual film itself. Someone who thinks that the critics are way too harsh with the "awesome" transformers movies. The type of person who decides what film to go and watch by the billboard they just drove past, or a 10 second TV spot. (37%)A piece made entirely for the average opening weekend cinema goer

Dilys Laye is suerb. Best of the Carry Ons, almost complete cast, only Kenneth Connor missing, laugh a minute, brilliant performance from Jim Dale, and patients including Charles Hawtrey and Bernard Bresslaw
