The Number Station (2013)


John Cusack
Malin Akerman

Number Station is filled with some very high level performances from John Cusack and Malin Akerman, and the movie made good use of its environment as we get to see some fun shoot-outs in enclosed areas and the most of the time we are watching two cast John Cusack and Malin Akerman but they found a way to keep you attracted and awake, as you eagerly wait for the movie to end.

Number Station is a British-America thriller without intensive car chasing or a bunch of men slugging it out, just a guy allowing his critical thinking get the best of him and a lady who choose the wrong career.

The Number Station is about a disgraced CIA black ops agent Emerson Kent (John Cusack) who was re-assigned to protect a code operator (Malin Åkerman) at a secret American numbers station, after Emerson failed to kill a witness after he carried out an operation.

Before they resumed for their shift in the station they found out that the station had been compromised and the people that were in the shift before them were killed and 15 numbers has been sent out to other black ops to take care of.

Emerson and his code operator stumble on some recordings that so happened to be captured when the number station was attacked, the recordings helped them to understand the things that went down in the number station, but they are still trapped in it and unauthorized codes have been sent out, they have to find a way to cancel the codes and get out alive.

I won’t rate number station high as the movie’s plot is dry and it was difficult liking it, although the leads were top notch, the screenplay was not. The movie does boast of some fun cinematography and the directing is good enough to be mentioned.

After the over 100 minutes of screen time I can boldly say this is not a movie for the cinemas neither is it one I will like to look back and I say I have seen this as the movie was not worth the time I put into it.
I have to say that it is hard and nearly difficult that John Cusack will be the best thing that a movie has to offer, but here he so happens to be, his acting was well done, his mannerism was also well fitted and I have to say he did a good job.

The Number Station is not a must see, if you have not seen it yet be grateful.
