Academy Award®-winning star Sean Connery (Best Supporting Actor, 1987 -- The Untouchables), reunites with action director John McTiernan (The Hunt for Red October, Die Hard) for another powerful collaboration in the heroic box office smash Medicine Man! Screen favorite Connery plays Dr. Robert Campbell, a brilliant but unorthodox scientist racing against time in his bold research for a cure against cancer. Set deep in the forbidding Amazon rain forest, this action-packed hit follows Campbell hot on the trail of an amazing discovery -- but the eccentric recluse soon finds himself caught in the midst of an explosive adventure! Also starring Oscar®-nominee Lorraine Bracco (Best Supporting Actress, 1990 -- Goodfellas), Medicine Man delivers unmatched entertainment with its spectacular mix of breathtaking scenery, captivating performances, and thrilling, nonstop excitement!
This is a great movie, whoever said it was confusing is a moron and has not seen the entire movie. This is a classic and Sean Connery does an Amazing job. A +
Between the Scenery, the music and of course the story its hard to pic what I like the most. The scenery is just awesome. It looks like someplace you could actually hide from civilization. The music is very nice as well, to the point I'm on my third CD of it. The story though is what makes it all work as the pace keeps up the idea that time may be running out in more than one way for the characters and the tribe. Not for everyone probably as the first reviewer will attest, though well worth a chance.
This is a really good movie. Seriously, watch it. My AP bio teacher had us watch this movie along with "And the band played on," (which i would LOVE to see on here). It has a really profound lesson at the end, which i won't tell you, cuz you've gotta see it. It's easy enough to follow the plot and the cast plays a great performance. Enjoy!
