JOHN McTIERNAN

Bil’s rating (out of 5):   BBB

USA, 1992.  Hollywood Pictures, Cinergi Pictures Entertainment.  Story by , Screenplay by Tom Schulman, .  Cinematography by .  Produced by , .  Music by .  Production Design by .  Costume Design by .  Film Editing by .  

John McTiernan brings less than his usual class and credibility to what is still a fun South American jungle adventure about a winsome young doctor (Lorraine Bracco, cast against type to excellent effect) who discovers that a research scientist (Sean Connery) has found the cure for cancer in the wild Amazon. She teams up with him to find it again, but they have to contend with corporate greed and angry natives first. Nice scenery, nothing too memorable.
