    Mercury Rising Art Jeffries (Bruce Willis), a renegade FBI agent, combats ruthless federal agents to protect Simon, a nine-year-old autistic boy who has cracked the government’s new “unbreakable” code. He can read MERCURY, the advanced encryption code, as easily as other kids read English. This skill renders the new billion-dollar secret code vulnerable, especially if enemies of the United States should learn of Simon’s abilities and capture him. Program chief Nick Kudrow (Alec Baldwin) orders the “security threat” eliminated, but Kudrow hasn’t counted on Jeffries getting involved. As they are trailed by deadly assassins, Jeffries quickly realizes that no one can be trusted. Now time is running out, and he discovers his only hope of survival is using Simon’s special ability to bring their adversaries to justice. The Jackal Bruce Willis is a ruthless assassin, known only as The Jackal, who has been hired to eliminate someone at the very top of the U.S. government. In order to track down this cold-blooded killer and prevent the hit, the FBI’s Deputy Director (Sidney Poitier) and a Russian intelligence officer (Diane Venora) enlist the aid of an imprisoned Irish terrorist (Richard Gere). These unlikely allies enter a global race against the clock to stop the mysterious mercenary before he can complete his deadly assignment.

    So I bought this movie collection with nostalgia in mind. When I received I threw it in and sat back ready to relieve some great Bruce Willis moments... Wow, I think my tastes have definitely changed since the release of these films. It was almost laughable how wooden the acting was and watching Willis in disguise (Jackal) it was less than believable. Although I would have to say watching Jack Black get shot was the highlight of the movie.

    Bottom line: If you want to see Jack Black shot then buy this two pack otherwise leave the memories of these two in the corner of your mind.

    I LOVE the original book and picture of The Day of The Jackal, one of my favorite pictures. It is NOT a picture for A/A fans, it is methodical and moves nicely through a good story...what A/A fans would call BORING!
    This version of The Jackal is full of Action and lots of explosions and killings, meat and potatoes for A/A fans. I was able to sit through this without yawning or laughing so even non-A/A people can enjoy it. It follows just the most basic parts of the original and Bruce co-stars with a big mechanical GUN.
    Mercury Rising is not loaded with explosions but does have enough murders to get a good A/A rating. The story is more thoughtful for an Action picture. Done in the late 90's it has the NSA as the BAD government agency out for blood. That holds up good today.
    Both films have really nice picture and heavy duty sound (window rattling bass) so if you have a good set up they should not disappoint.

    This is quite a double feature. MERCURY RISING and THE JACKAL are two very good suspense action films. MERCURY RISING is a film with a lot of emotion behind it. It has a real heart felt story that questions plausibility and true credibility at times but it really hits home as it evokes genuine sentiment and feeling through a brutal world we now live in. This to date is the last great action film staring Bruce Willis. His performance of the dedicated civil servant doing what is right against all odds is admirable. His adversary Alec Baldwin stands for all that is wrong with a system that is supposed to protect our way of life and liberties while sacrificing the innocent trying to protect it at the enrichment of his own ego. At the center is a small autistic boy who supposedly can compromise Baldwin's plans who is being protected by FBI agent Willis who has fallen from grace. In simplest terms it is a film of right and goodness against greed and evil. On that level this film works. This film contains one of John Barry's last great scores as it gives credence to the story by bringing our most tearfully compassionate emotions to the surface while driving the narrative with an impassioned purpose. I like this film a lot I think because it takes the hardened tough good guy hero image and on an emotional level shows what drives him and what's really makes his heart tick. This double feature allows us to see Bruce Willis play both the hero and the villain. Bruce Willis really steals THE JACKAL with a brilliant performance in pure villainy against Richard Gere and Sydney Poitier. Jack Black is memorable too. But it is the juxtaposition of story and character studies is what really works here.Read more ›
