The Numbers StationMalin Akerman (Rock of Ages) and John Cusack (The Raven) headline the thriller movie The Numbers Station.

Cusack plays veteran CIA black ops agent Emerson Kent whose last mission went horrible wrong. He gets one last chance to prove he can still do his job when he’s assigned to guard Katherine (Akerman), a code operator at a top-secret remote CIA “Numbers Station” where encrypted messages are sent and received.

But, after an elite team of heavily armed assailants attack the station, Emerson and Katherine end up in a life-or-death struggle to stop the deadly plot.

The first screenplay by F. Scott Frazier, R-rated The Numbers Station was directed by Danish filmmaker Kasper Barfoed (The Candidate). Games of Thrones‘ Liam Cunningham and Hannah Murray and True Blood‘s Lucy Griffiths also star in the independent film.

The movie wasn’t too well received by critics or moviegoers. The New York Times‘ critic Jeannette Carsoulis wrote: “This dreary spy drama is as flat and airless as the concrete bunker in which it unfolds.” Village Voice‘s Chuck Wilson was a little more positive, saying, “There are some decent shootouts, but the movie’s strongest assets are the soulful performances.”

No special features are on the DVD or Blu-ray.
