Summary: Child prodigy is really a supercomputer.
In this bizarre study of autism, Bruce Willis plays a down-on-his-luck (imagine that) cop who becomes the protector of an autistic child, the only witness to the murder of the child's parents. The evil government secret agency is after this child because he broke a super-tough cryptographic code. We're supposed to believe this is possible, and that hurts some. The good cop vs. evil government nasties action is very good, however-- Bruce Willis always fights the bad guys very well. Plus, it was interesting to see him play the sentimental protector role.
