Great film

I am not much of a fan for John Travolta or Bruce Willis but they were perfectly cast for this film by Tarantino. Another standout was Samuel Jackson who partners with Travolta as a pair of contract killers for a drug lord but one day like Paul on the road to Damascus, Jackson also undergoes a transition in his life that very morning when a drug dealer fires five shoots at him and his partner but misses both of them. Jackson contends that it was a miracle and recognizes the presence of the Divine. Travolta is surprised by this announcement. He considers it blind luck but he is simply shocked when he learns that Jackson plans to quit his job and go in search of God. Or that the film opens and closes with the robbery in the restaurant.

Sequels

The problem with sequels is that they are seldom better than the original. I always thought that the writing failed the film. The cast and crew were fine.

Excellent film

I saw this film over twenty years ago. It was good then and good today. Danny DeVito as Ralph and Zack Norman as Ira provided some superb support but Michael Douglas makes the film go. It's so easy to see how Kathleen Turner, the wallflower in the film falls for him hook, line and sinker. It was a well made film that has held up over the years.

Great start

Reviewed by Daedalus

It got off to a great start but somewhere along the way it fumbled the ball perhaps it was the return of two members of the expedition after the helicopter crash that injected a sense of silly into the film. It was a fine effort by the cast and crew but the writing fell short. For a scientific crew it shows a complete lack of disinterest in why the alien left his ship. Or a concern for what's known as the Columbian exchange. With good writing it would have been a far better film. Instead it elects to become people against the thing.

It was a fun film

This film is everything a western or science fiction film shouldn't be. So both camps get irritated. I rather enjoyed it and isn't the purpose of the film the viewer's enjoyment?
