Critics Consensus

Sappy, dull, and muddled, Dragonfly is too melancholic and cliched to generate much suspense.

Stupid junk

The movie is OK - not outstanding, just OK. It is frustrating as we see Joe (Costner) getting these supposed messages from his deceased wife, and we don't know if he is crazy or if he really is getting messages (which could also be construed as being crazy). Anyways Joe takes off for Venezuela to try and find out what happened for himself.

a very workable watchable film moving from modern chicagoland hospitals to the jungles of venezula, a tale of love that at first questions a doctor's sanity only to later prove to remarkably trancend the uncrossable divide, even death.
