"The Numbers Station" is the type of movie that would go unnoticed for a
long time, just because people don't seem to give these type of movies a chance,
others come to mind like [The spy who Came In From The Cold] and [Safe House] and
a lot more movies that's out there, this one is, to protect the Numbers at all cost and
don't let it get in the wrong hands, when his last job went horrible wrong CIA black Ops
operative Emersion Kent [John Cusack] is given one last chance to prove he's good at
what he does, his new assignment, guarding Katherine (Malin Akerman, Watchman),
at a top-secret remote CIA "Numbers Station" but when the station was compromised
with innocent lives at stake, they have to stop the deadly plot before it's too late,
as I got into the movie it has an almost thriller feel to it, it's very entertaining and sometimes
edge of your seat good, only bad thing about this Disc [not the movie] when you press the
special features while watching the movie, it stops the movie and go right to the features,
I don't know if it's only on this poster of the Disc, because I see there are three deferent covers
to the front of the poster that's here on Amazon.ca.
The Reason I put these Specks, it's because, sometimes Amazon does not do it..
1080p High Definition Widescreen 2.40:1
DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
Runtime 89 Minutes.
Great Little Movie To Keep You Entertained. With Popcorn. Of Course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Missed it but love it. April 15 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Missed this one when it was out and saw it on Amazon. Took the chance on it. It has covert ops, and John Cusack who I always enjoy. Plus Blue Ray. So Yeah got it and love it. It may not be quite as fast as some of the other movies in this line of movies but I really enjoyed it and thought it moved along well. The story was solid enough and it was as believable as any other story. I don't think you would be disappointed with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Aug. 27 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Interesting film, I bought because I have always loved John Cusack. It is the complete antithesis of Grosse Pointe Blank, my favourite Cusack film, but still well made and interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars... Pleasant thriller worth it for the performances April 26 2013
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
"The Numbers Station" (2013 release; 90 min.) brings the story of Emerson (played by John Cusack), a CIA operative in the field. As the movie opens, we see Emerson involved in an assassination of several targets but it all goes horribly wrong when the daughter of one of the targets comes onto the scene. Unable to "retire" her, Emerson's boss Gray (played by Liam Cunningham) does so instead, but he promptly demotes Emerson away from the field. Next we see that Emerson has been assigned to guard the broadcaster, a woman named Katherine (played by Malin ┼kerman), of a "numbers station" in the country side near Suffolk, England. As the movie explains, a numbers station broadcasts (in short wave) secret messages in numbers to agents in the field, giving them new assignments. Not long after, the numbers station is attacked and infiltrated, and all kinds of trouble and mayham ensues. Why is the numbers station being attacked? Will Emerson and Katherine make it out alive? Is there double-play at hand anywhere? To tell you more of this plot-heavy movie would surely ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: first and foremost, John Cusack! Yes, Cusack is front and center in this movie, he is in fact in every scene and in virually every shot. Aging gracefully, yet maintaining that boyish face, Cusack carries the movie from start to finish, and for me he is reason enough to watch and enjoy this movie. But wait! there is more! Malin ┼kerman as the person Cusack needs to protect is equally delightful, oozing charm (and, let's be honest, looks as well). She is playing the role of Debbie Harry in the upcoming movie "CBGB" later this year, can't wait for that. When I saw the end credits role of this movie, I couldn't help but notice it had tons of international co-production assists (including VFX from Belgium, where I grew up).

Imagine my surprise when "The Numbers Station" showed up this weekend out of nowhere and without any pre-release buzz or ads on a single screen for all of Greater Cincinnati. So I decided to go see it right away, as I figure this won't stick around long. As it turned out, I got a private screening of it. Yes indeed, I was the only person in the theatre! Weird. That aside, "The Numbers Station" is a pleasant thriller that is worth it mostly for the solid performances of John Cusack and Malin ┼kerman.

3.0 out of 5 stars NO LOOSE ENDS April 20 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Emerson (John Cusack) is a government assassin who grew a conscience and failed to kill an innocent witness. He is given a desk job at a secure bunker in England. He will work with a woman (Malin Akerman) and together they transmit codes to agents operating in Europe performing all kind of black ops...or something. When the station is compromised, Emerson has orders to "retire the broadcaster."

Most of the action takes place within the Numbers Station with the two main actors. The strength of this light spy action thriller rests on their performances as they fight for survival.

Cusack was more convincing in this film than he was "The Factory." The movie holds your interest as you wonder what Emerson will ultimately do, why the station was compromised and by who. It is a film you will find "okay" and then forget about it as it blends into everything else you have seen.

Parental guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, Entertaining AND Professional - in this kind of movie? Oh Yeah. May 4 2013
By RUSSELL BURNHAM - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The Numbers Station was just a breath of suspenseful fresh air to me. Everything about the movie was first rate. Everything matters. I was caught up in their universe for the whole movie and not one thing took me out of that universe. Seriously, all 10 of us here absolutely love the movie - and that is the first time THAT has ever happened.

The acting as exacting, professional, and spot-on. The script (at least what was in the movie) was a remarkably tight and completely relevant. John Cusack was flawless. The directing was surreal. Even the friggin' lighting was perfect through the entire movie. Everything came together in an indescribable and unexpected perfection that I had given up thinking could ever exist. And I didn't expect squat from this movie! I just wanted to see John Cusack because I'm a fan. Frankly, I don't think any other actor could have pulled off this role like John did. Nobody.

Having a movie this entertaining while also delivering whatever metaphor you need for now (rare quality) has not been done this well in a movie... ever. If you can imagine the quality of story and writing of the classics that are becoming movies now (finally) in the form of something also very entertaining in a genre like this. Wow. Just... wow. I can't wait to buy this movie when it comes out to be bought.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE NUMBERS STATION Is The Kind of Political Thriller Hollywood Used To Make Before It Went Too Political May 28 2013
By Edward Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Every now and then, there's a small picture that somehow manages to escape anyone's attention when it plays theatrical. Typically, this happens when the said movie doesn't quite have a storyline that'll appeal to the biggest, boldest demographic: kids ... or younger adults with disposable incomes. Sadly, if it doesn't have an alien or a Transformer or a superhero or a laser or a car crash or maybe an accent or even Leo DiCaprio in some role, then it doesn't play to the masses; and a film like THE NUMBERS STATION ends up playing it all too safe by-the-numbers. It isn't so much a disservice - one could make a strong case that the lack of any clearly drawn characters holds STATION back from being a property worth greater acclaim - but I've always believed there's something to be said for a film that knows what it is, knows what it wants to be, and just delivers on that premise.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

Veteran CIA black ops agemt Emerson Kent (played by the reliable John Cusack) ends up incapable of completing a `hit' job in the field, and, as punishment, he's relegated into a dead end position as the supervisor to a distant numbers station - a facility dedicated to dispatching clandestine orders to agents in the field. However, when his station is compromised, it's up to Kent and his broadcaster Katherine (the equally reliable Malin Ackerman) to avoid assassination, figure out just what the terrorists were up to, and correct it if it isn't too late.

THE NUMBERS STATION - which is a smart first script from F. Scott Frazier directed by Kasper Barfoed - defies traditional descriptions. It feels very much like a Cold War thriller, only there really are no specific adversaries named; there's just the U.S., and someone who's intent on spoiling U.S. interests. It also feels very much like a locked-box mystery, wherein the protagonists - Emerson and Katherine - are trying to uncover what happened and whether or not the events are fixable. But it also feels as though it desperately wants to make some kind of political statement on the nature of hidden agendas ... and one has to wonder if all of these threads were too tightly woven to do the resulting picture any good.

If one throws all of that aside, then you're left with its most satisfying impression: an old-school thriller. It's the kind of picture Hollywood used to churn out before so many vanity projects pushed political messages into the theatrical mainstream. On that front, I thought STATION achieved a good balance - there's just enough characterization for audiences to enjoy the lean 90-minute flick and not have a message hammered home. There's a respectable amount of action, a palatable amount of intrigue, and an appreciable return on the investment made in the entire affair.

Why this one didn't register with audiences when it played in the multiplexes is a mystery to me. Cusack - when he stays apolitical - is a known commodity though he hasn't had a hit in some time, and one has to wonder how much longer Ackerman will have to flourish in obscure pictures before she breaks through to wider acclaim. My best guess is the STATION was somewhat dismissed by critics who saw it largely due to the fact that, in today's event-driven environment, a smaller and quieter picture that ends up not necessarily indicting any government just isn't up-to-snuff. One can almost hear film historians collectively screaming, "If we're not openly trashing the U.S., then what are we doing?" STATION takes only a parting shot at an regime, and it's numbly voiced in a single line by Cusack's veteran black ops character: "It's gotta stop." Even then, he's not talking so much about a government as he is a specific practice, and that's not moving enough for Hollywood intelligentsia to wrap their thick skulls around.

THE NUMBERS STATION is produced by a whole host of partners, up to and including ContentFilm International, Echo Lake Productions (I), Piccadilly Pictures, and many more (check out the complete list at IMDB.com if you're that interested). DVD distribution is being handled through RLJ Entertainment. As for the technical specifications, the picture is smartly photographed, and the sound mix is particularly impressive given the fact that sound plays a key element in the unfolding plotline. As for the special features, alas there's only a fifteen minute obligatory `making of' short that makes slim use of John Cusack; I don't know if he wasn't all that interested in the finished product or what, but he just didn't seem all that interested in being there. Shame on you, Mr. Cusack; not every film has to carry a weighty message.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. THE NUMBERS STATION has a smart script that maybe - just maybe - takes the audience for granted one times too many. It didn't receive much notice in its run in theatres, but I'd strongly encourage viewers to give it a go as a rental. Cusack has played a hitman before (in the stellar GROSS POINTE BLANK); his Emerson Kent here is just a world-weary, but the consequences are far dire. Ackerman turns in another winning performance, and, together, they maintain a solid chemistry even though some of the paces feel a bit too rehearsed.

In the interests of fairness, I'm pleased to disclose that the fine folks at RLJ Entertainment provided me with a DVD copy of THE NUMBERS STATION by request for the expressed purposes of completing this review.
