NYT Review: Dangerous Mission in Tight Quarters

“The Numbers Station,” a spy drama starring John Cusack and Malin Akerman, unfolds in a concrete bunker. — Jeannette Catsoulis Read the review

With Cusack's help, Barfoed holds your interest without resorting to car chases, a rarity in a contemporary thriller.

Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 2013-04-26

 

There are some decent shootouts, but the movie's strongest assets are the soulful performances ...

Chuck Wilson, Village Voice, 2013-04-23

 

John Cusack replays his role as a lethal operative with occupational angst for a routine thriller with a female cryptographer at secret CIA site. Dire workplace issues ensue.

Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times, 2013-05-11

 

A predictable hodgepodge of uninteresting psychological cat-and-mouse, dimly lighted action filmed by director Kasper Barfoed in standard-operating shaky-cam ...

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 2013-04-26

 

This dreary spy drama is as flat and airless as the concrete bunker in which it unfolds.

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 2013-04-25

 

Akerman does work hard to keep up the energy level. Cusack, though, seems bored by the superficial proceedings, which don't even offer the distraction of a real romantic connection or a suspenseful confrontation.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2013-04-25

 

Cusack and Akerman scramble down a series of dimly lit, identical-looking passageways. The setting is as ill-defined as the characters.
