The movie was just as good as the book and had great acting.
This movie was very good. I saw it after reading the book and was not disappointed. Tom Cruise had a decent performance, but I felt the performances of Gene Hackman, Hal Holbrook, and Wilford Brimley were especially great and put this film above most similar movies.
Brimley has never to my knowledge had a role similar to this before and he was excellent. I had not really been impressed with his acting but in this movie I definitely was.
The suspense flowed naturally and never seemed forced just to fill time. The music score was very good. The variety of settings (first Cambridge, MA, then Memphis, TN, then the Caribbean) made it more interesting, too.
I have seen it twice..once on the big screen and once on video. The book was also very good.
