Magnificent direction by the master of film fantasy Steven Spielberg, as well as amazing digital effects, make this a captivating, rollercoaster ride, with plenty of suspense and astonishment to go along. True, the story isn't really close to the book version, but why quibble. The actors work well together within some well set up scenes. Still, someone else should have been chosen for the part of the mathematician other than Goldblum. He is completely unconvincing in his role, and doesn't really fit in that well. Other than that, the film is practically flawless.
A fellow critic once said that when he saw this film, he didn't think it brought out the same excitement and feeling of awe as Spielberg's other films. My first thought was "Did we see the same movie?" Anyone who says this doesn't engender much excitement, has to see the film a few more times.
