Cypher

"Good"

Cypher Review


Jeremy Northam and Lucy Liu make an interesting pair in this high-tech story of spies, mind control, and corporate espionage. Alas, even the most attentive viewer will find it to be utterly baffling, with twist after twist completely screwing your mind into a knot. Sci-fi genre fans will find it engaging and different, but casual viewers will probably give up after the third or fourth brain probe.
