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.

Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers

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.

January 29, 2003
KFOR Channel 4 News

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.
