It never rises past a second-rate thriller.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The film grafts a fiercely modernist feel onto characters and themes right out of a 1940s film noir--an impressive achievement that more than makes up for a ponderous storyline.

I found it pretty entertaining, as well as provocative in some of its comments about contemporary life.

An intriguing, sensual whodunit that would have been even better had it not succumb to political correctness and changed the identity of the killer from Crichton's novel.

The flaws don't cripple what is a fiercely funny, exciting and provocative detective story about the crimes of corporate culture -- crimes that transcend race and geography.

The film works because of the world it creates, aided by the cinematography of Michael Chapman and the set design of frequent Coppola collaborator Dean Tavoularis.

Kaufman's film is flawed. but not as bad as critics claim-- charges of racism made this adaptation controversial even before it was seen.

It would be nice to see Connery doing something intrinsically interesting instead of trying to make something inherently dull entertaining. And it would be good to see Snipes cut loose more than he is able to here.

As the plot grows more intricate, strangely the tension dissipates, until finally the movie just seems to run out of breath.

What should have been a tense political thrilling blockbuster, ends up a wasted effort with a limp storyline that once again fails to give the book justice.

aufman's heavy-handedness and a half-baked script with unfocused performances to match render this unentertaining, vacuous nonsense.

When working in genre territory before, the idiosyncratic Kaufman has shown a marked tendency to debunk or subvert conventions. Playing it straight here, he brings little to the table.
