Based on the novel by bestselling author Robin Cook, this 1996 made-for-television feature is a competent yet thoroughly unremarkable medical thriller that should appeal mainly to non-discerning followers of the author's work. Melrose Place's Doug Savant is a young researcher at a hospital who learns that the facility has developed a cure for cancer. However, it appears that the only patients who are benefiting from the experiment are wealthy elderly men. In his search to discover the truth behind this miraculous new treatment, Savant puts his career and his life at risk. Viewers familiar with other adaptations of Cook's novels (which include the vastly superior theatrical release Coma as well as TV movies like Virus and Acceptable Risk) will find the goings-on a comfortably familiar way to kill 90 minutes, while non-fans may dismiss this as a forgettable potboiler. Savant and costar Nia Peeples are serviceable as the leads, while their more experienced supporting cast (headed by Michael Ironside) does what it can to keep the plot moving. Artisan's DVD presentation is free of extras. --Paul Gaita
