Audience Reviews for Medicine Man

    Sean Connery plays a doctor in Brazil searching for a cancer cure which is apparently derived from a flower that exists high atop the jungle's trees. He is soon joined by a research assistant Lorainne Bracco, and together they begin to search for the 'misplaced' antidote with lots of barbed exchanges between the old curmudgeon and this independent new woman. The problem is that the Brazilian government is looking to bulldoze the area to create a road destroying the trees on which the stuff grows and Bracco's foundation is threatening to pull the plug on the funding. Glimpses into the aboriginal life of the rainforests was very interesting...enough so to keep me attentive. And Sean Connery was as good as he could have been considering how one-dimensional his character was.

    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.

    Dr. Campbell (Sean Connery), a biochemist who has been doing extensive medical research for years in the lush rainforests of the Amazon, has found what just might be a MAJOR medical breakthrough. But that's not to say that he wouldn't enjoy just a little bit of help. Dr. Crane (Lorraine Bracco), a fellow biochemist comes to the aid of Dr. Campbell to help him as much as she can. Will Dr. Campbell and Dr. Crane be able to find this miracle cure that could be just over the horizon? Will they be able to set aside their differences and actually be able to get along one of these days? These are the major questions that watching "Medicine Man" will answer for all the viewers who watch this great movie. "Medicine Man" is one of those movies that doesn't need a bit of special effects to make it an unforgettable movie. It's a film that is real compelling and interesting to watch from start to finish without ever getting boring. With Sean Connery as the lead character, you know there will be great acting included. If you're a fan of great movies, I definitely recommend to not miss out on your chance to watch and even own "Medicine Man." NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2002.

    Sean Connery is a doctor with a ponytail in the jungle. He accidently discovers a cure for cancer, but doesn't know how he did it. Besides some nice rainforest visuals, Connery's ponytail is the best part of the film.
