Delayed Cypher

With enough twists to make anyone doubt every characters motives, Cypher is surprisingly well-written for how subdued it is. It’s the story of Morgan (Jeremy Northam), a man who wants to escape the drudgery of his life by going into espionage. Inevitably, he gets into a lot more than he wanted.

Surprisingly, the film also shows that Lucy Liu, the lead female character, can actually act. Shocking, when put side by side with her work in Charlie’s Angels.

It is not the best film in the world, the twists do start to push it after a while, but it’s certainly a great deal better than some of the garbage that is being showing recently.
