Mercury Rising

Remember this one? I hadn't seen it since it came out in the theater in 1998. I'd forgotten what a great, on the edge-of-your-seat movie it is. Bruce Willis always delivers but the actor that really amazed me was Miko Hughes who played the autistic savant little boy. I'm still trying to figure out he managed to keep his eyes rolled to the side of his head. All in all a good movie for date night.

  2. I'll let you into a secre Sandra, many movies I haven't seen except on TV due to the fact that the last time I went to the cinema I was pregnant with my second child and he's 40 plus. I saw a film with many flashing lights which upset me not know I was Epiletic at the time.
    This preview looks like a good film all the same.

  4. I'd forgotten about that film as well. Funny how some movies slip through the memory cracks.

  5. A bit to much violence for me. But from the little that I've seen here a lot of talented acting.
    Have a great day 💮

  6. That was a decent one indeed. I'm not sure you can say "Bruce Willis always delivers" these days. Have you seen some of the direct to dvd crap he's been putting out? Blah.

  11. Bruce Willis is one of my boyfriends so I watch him in everything. I saw this a few times and enjoyed it so much. He just did a movie in 2017 that was a little out of character for him because he travels around on a skateboard. (lol) Hugs...

  14. I don't recall ever seeing this and don't think I've even heard of it before. I loved Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense. I thought that was better than the action movies he did.

    Love,
    Janie

    2. Janie and Lon: The HH loved it too. And Bruce Willis did an excellent job. But the movie weirded me out. Too creepy for me.

      Delete
    3. I agree that it was creepy. It frightened me, but in a good way.

      Delete
    4. It was extremely well done, I just don't do creepy very well:)

      I'm not sure if I've seen Unbreakable or not. We'll have to give it a look see, then compare notes:)
