Mercury Rising (1998)


Action, Thriller

Mercury Rising is action thriller film starring Bruce Willis and Alec Baldwin. Directed by Harold Becker, the movie is based on Ryne Douglas Pearson’s 1996 novel originally published as Simple Simon, which was the working title of the film.

Simon is a nine-year-old autistic boy who has cracked the government’s new “unbreakable” code. This skill renders the new billion-dollar secret code vulnerable, especially if enemies of the United States should learn of Simon’s abilities and capture him. Program chief Nick Kudrow orders the “security threat” eliminated, but Kudrow hasn’t counted on renegade FBI agent Art Jeffries (Bruce Willis).

Director: Harold Becker
