Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An underrated character drama which occasionally slips into thriller mode, Medicine Man is an engaging piece of forgotten '90s cinema."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"Inoffensive jungle flick. Connery's wicked hair weave took home Best Supporting Actor."
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
"One of the weakest 'Indiana Jones' rip-offs to date."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum

‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Embarrassing for Connery"
‑ Michael Szymanski, Zap2it.com
"A thoughtful, but preachy, mess of a movie."
‑ Blake Davis, KFOR Channel 4 News
