The big-budget pic has Connery as the maverick scientist to keep thing perking and exotic background shots, but little else going for it.

Embarrassing for Connery

Blake Davis
KFOR Channel 4 News

A thoughtful, but preachy, mess of a movie.

Steve Crum
Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers

Interesting, intriguing blend of character study and action with Sean Connery.

Brian Mckay

A decent premise laid low by Bracco's lack of credibility and constant whining.

Scott Weinberg

Connery & Bracco run through the jungle. Yawn.

Inoffensive jungle flick. Connery's wicked hair weave took home Best Supporting Actor.

Alex Sandell
Juicy Cerebellum

One of the weakest 'Indiana Jones' rip-offs to date.
