If you've read the book, don't even bother watching the movie. I read the book first and saw the movie afterward and I was extremely disappointed by this adaptation.

This is one movie which definitely had some potential but it turned out to be seriously disappointing after all. Indeed, at first, the whole thing was actually pretty exciting, it was an adaptation from a popular book written by Michael Crichton, there was a solid director (Barry Levinson) and the cast was really neat (Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone, Samuel L.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1884 movies items)

" The other Michael Crichton film to be released this decade, that didn’t have cloned dinosaurs, Demi Moore, or a talking gorilla. Maybe this is why it sunk at the box office? A spaceship is discovered under three hundred years' worth of coral growth at the bottom of the ocean. Even with Barry Levinson as a director, a star studded cast and a Michael Crichton adaptation, the movie was still shipwrecked."

The Best of Dustin Hoffman (15 movies items)

" Norman Goodman "MANIFEST! MANIFEST! He made it happen. It's not that different from a child. A child imagines something that believes its real and its not there, but with Harry, He not only makes it real from himself, he makes real for all of us.""

"Reason why the future sucks: You’re on a sub, and just discovered a mind altering orb, capable of showing your worst fears. Year it takes place: 1998ish. "

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

"29 May. Quite the thriller it was before but lamed with age. A team of specialists are assembled to investigate an alien spacecraft several leagues under the sea. Based on a Michael Crichton novel and directed by Barry Levinson doesn't quite capture on camera the paranoia it intends, and acting nears laughable.  "
