Hackman and Grant make a surprisingly watchable pair, but there's yawns to be found.

Is it excusable to kill a few indigents here and there experimenting for a miracle cure? Measures' painfully protracted Hour 2 turns into a melodramatic debate about ethics.

The good liberal Michael Apted seems to think he's directing a film about society's exploitation of the homeless. In fact, the exploitation is all his.

Tries to be a both a medical thriller and morality play, and it doesn't quite deliver in both departments.

It's a fish out of water story in which neither the fish nor anybody else seems aware of his 'out of water' status.

If it's never as scary or provocative as it means to be, at least it's straightforward and satisfying.
