Academy AwardR-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 OscarR-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!
Director John McTiernan Die Hard does an underwhelming job with this potentially interesting story of a research scientist Sean Connery who discovers a cure for cancer in the Brazilian rain forest, but then can't retrace his steps in creating the potion. Added pressure on his work is coming from developers burning down the forest, while an American bureaucrat Lorraine Bracco, who holds the purse strings on the grant, has arrived to give him a bad time. The crucial chemistry between the stars just isn't there Bracco can be hard to take at times, and, despite the added exotica of local witch doctors and seeing Connery swing through the trees, the elements just don't come together in this well-meaning but disappointing movie. --Tom Keogh
