Vincenzo Natali United States, 2002

Mugino's rating of the film Cypher

Natali's arty direction and Northam's surprising turn in a nebbish role keeps this interesting, but the borrowed (and by now predictable) plot owes much to greater sci-fi writers of yore. Liu is oddly bland and unconvincing in the femme fatale role.
