Based on Michael Crichton's provocative bestseller, this smart, engrossing and electrically charged thriller is as entertaining as it is thought provoking.

Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: What should have been a tense political thrilling blockbuster, ends up a wasted effort with a limp storyline that once again fails to give the book justice.
- Angie Errigo, Empire Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: As the plot grows more intricate, strangely the tension dissipates, until finally the movie just seems to run out of breath.
- David Ansen, Newsweek, Saturday, October 18, 2008
Fresh: A thoroughly gratifying prestige thriller, thanks to riveting suspense and two brilliant stars.
- Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Entertaining. A whodunit that keeps you on your toes by sending the viewer down wrong paths as you try to determine who the killer is. Sean Connery usually does a great job acting, and this movie is no exception.

A decent mystery film, but not perfect by any means.
