Director Vincenzo Natali, famous for being the man behind the cult classic Cube, helms this spy thriller from the debut screenplay by writer Brian King. Jeremy Northam stars as Morgan Sullivan, a man who suddenly finds himself deeply embroiled in the fast-paced and dangerous world of corporate espionage. But it isn't until Sullivan meets a mysterious woman named Rita (Lucy Liu) that he begins to realize exactly what he's gotten himself into. Also starring David Hewlitt and Kari Matchett, Cypher was the winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Fantasy at the 2003 Fantasporo Film Festival. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

Nice try by Texan99 September 5, 2010 - 1:40 PM PDT

Serviceable entry in the "Myth of the Lost Pearl" category, always a favorite in the sci-fi genre. This was something like "The Matrix" without the martial arts and a good bit of the mumbo-jumbo. Normally I'd find the motif of our hero breaking out of his false life to discover his true one quite moving, but I suppose the execution didn't quite work for me here. I did appreciate the excruciatingly convincing scenes of a series of deadly boring seminar lectures and convention cocktail parties. The filmmaker's take on what's really going on at those things may be the only plausible one available.
