The Numbers Station

The Numbers Station is a Netflix find. One of many unknown John Cusack and Nicolas Cage movies that have been on Netflix recently.  I like John Cusack, and love Malin Ackerman. So I watch it. Its not terrible, but not great either. Its a perfectly serviceable film about a secret CIA station somewhere in Europe where they broadcast numbers that are codes for CIA assassins and their targets.  If you got ahold of the code, and one of the stations, you could secretly assign the CIA to destroy itself and the United States.  Someone manages to do this and it's up to semi-retired CIA agent John Cusack and the girl who reads and decodes the numbers Malin Ackerman to stop it.  It's a small film, with only a few cast members, but it does manage to rachet up the tension to merit a watch. Check it out next time you think there is nothing good on Netflix!

3.5 out of 5 Stars
