An underrated character drama which occasionally slips into thriller mode, Medicine Man is an engaging piece of forgotten '90s cinema.

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.

Embarrassing for Connery

March 21, 2003
Zap2it.com

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

March 19, 2003
eFilmCritic.com

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

March 4, 2003
Juicy Cerebellum

A thoughtful, but preachy, mess of a movie.

Connery & Bracco run through the jungle. Yawn.

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.
