A spectacular score by Jerry Goldsmith and beautiful scenery cannot save this often boring melodrama about jungle scientists racing to find a cure for cancer. Sean Connery is interesting but Lorraine Bracco was severely miscast and ends up whiny and petulant. Its best moments are whenever the characters venture into the canopy and zipline through the trees.

Dreary eco-drama that involves nothing but Sean Connery swinging through some trees and a feeble and entirely unconvincing romantic interlude wih Lorraine Bracco.

This is a film that's more about the message than the delivery. Yet that message is delivered and the premise is sound. It could have been better, but I'm happy enough where it stands to recommend watching it at least once.
