      Steve What's wrong with a soap far fetched story, that has a happy ending, nothing, nothing at all. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review AJ R Nothing really new here story wise. Pretty cliche. Visually it's good. Pacing is quite slow for an action movie but never gets boring. Worth a watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/01/24 Full Review Belle C Don't waste your time watching that movie Creator #1 - no real plot- #2- ๏ฟผ๏ฟผ special effects are redundant #3 ridiculous message that AI is good & kind #4 US is the enemy- (Hollywood loves that) one. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review Steve K I fell in love with this the first time I saw it back in the 80's--having just rewatched it for the first time in decades, I still love it. Strange blend of sweet romance, philosophical musings, smart comedy, and drama both professional and medical. Every main character gets a chance to shine in their own unique niche, and there are many quotable lines. Tell me you don't want to see a movie where you get to watch Peter O'Toole say this: "One day we will peer into our microscopes and find ourselves staring into God's eyes--and the first one who blinks will lose his testicles!" Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/29/23 Full Review Helen V This is one of my favorite movies! It is a beautiful love story. I love the actors.

      Paul Attanasio Washington Post How did a movie this mindlessly saccharine ever get made? Jan 4, 2018 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Creator is ambitious and tries to do a lot of things and does most of them well, but it's a close miss. Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Rick Chatenever Santa Cruz Sentinel Creator is a refreshingly intelligent movie. Nov 5, 2019 Full Review Jake Euker F5 (Wichita, KS) Rated: 2/5 Feb 18, 2007 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Aug 3, 2005 Full Review Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice Peter O'Toole's madcap performance is a wonder to behold.
