A major disappointment from first-class director Philip Kaufman.
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.
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.
I found it pretty entertaining, as well as provocative in some of its comments about contemporary life.
Kaufman's PC adaptation falls awkwardly between the conventions of the Hollywood conspiracy thriller and something intended as more artily significant.
There are moments when Rising Sun touches a raw nerve...Too often though, this film conveys what might be called the unbearable lightness of Crichton.
It turns out a muddle: a buddy pic and a culture shocker as well as a thriller.
It never rises past a second-rate thriller.
Kaufman's film is flawed. but not as bad as critics claim-- charges of racism made this adaptation controversial even before it was seen.
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.
Entertaining. A whodunit that keeps you on your toes by sending the viewer down wrong paths as you try to determine who the killer is. Sean Connery usually does a great job acting, and this movie is no exception.
A decent mystery film, but not perfect by any means.
i love sean connery and thought this movie ws quite good to be honest!
Its a good action thriller with a few good twists and turns and its even funy as well in places!
its worth a watch but can get a little confusing!
its been some time since ive seen this film but i remember strangly liking the chemistry between snipes and connery. i wish snipes was still alive, he was good.
