The movie sucked!!! It was about as tense as an episode of Scooby Doo, and not even as well scripted. Which is a puzzle to me. It's directed by Barry Levinson, it stars famous actors (Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, Samuel L. Jackson), and it's based on a book by Michael Crichton, a master of sci-fi writing. Sometimes I don't understand the Hollywood industry...
