Critic Reviews for Medicine Man
All of the elements are here for a movie I would probably enjoy very much, but somehow they never come together.
While Medicine Man clearly has its heart in saving the rain forest, its brain is stuck in that place where Hollywood formulas are stillborn.
The big-budget pic has Connery as the maverick scientist to keep thing perking and exotic background shots, but little else going for it.
Interesting, intriguing blend of character study and action with Sean Connery.
Inoffensive jungle flick. Connery's wicked hair weave took home Best Supporting Actor.
Audience Reviews for Medicine Man
Yet another movie I watched in school. Why? I wish I knew. I didn't think much of it, obviously, but since I don't remember much of it, I'll say it's okay. Maybe I'll see it again sometime.
Dr. Campbell (Sean Connery), a biochemist who has been doing extensive medical research for years in the lush rainforests of the Amazon, has found what just might be a MAJOR medical breakthrough. But that's not to say that he wouldn't enjoy just a little bit of help. Dr. Crane (Lorraine Bracco), a fellow biochemist comes to the aid of Dr. Campbell to help him as much as she can. Will Dr. Campbell and Dr. Crane be able to find this miracle cure that could be just over the horizon? Will they be able to set aside their differences and actually be able to get along one of these days? These are the major questions that watching "Medicine Man" will answer for all the viewers who watch this great movie. "Medicine Man" is one of those movies that doesn't need a bit of special effects to make it an unforgettable movie. It's a film that is real compelling and interesting to watch from start to finish without ever getting boring. With Sean Connery as the lead character, you know there will be great acting included. If you're a fan of great movies, I definitely recommend to not miss out on your chance to watch and even own "Medicine Man." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2002.
Sean Connery is a doctor with a ponytail in the jungle. He accidently discovers a cure for cancer, but doesn't know how he did it. Besides some nice rainforest visuals, Connery's ponytail is the best part of the film.
