Pretty terrible, and I have never wanted the bad guy to win so much in my life. The protagonist is the most annoying character ever with a mustache that needs to be eradicated for good. If only the man in black killed him at the end, then maybe this movie would have gotten 3 stars from me.
Go wrong... Go wrong... Go wrong... A common motif in Michael Crichton's works. We are arrogant in our assumed superiority over nature, each other... even fate. Look for an early demonstration of the popular Chaos Theory (by way of the inexorably festering computer virus), which Crichton explores thoroughly later, in his masterpiece, Jurassic Park.

Yul Brynner is excellent. I finally saw this years after seeing The Terminator but now I see where Arnold got his inspiration for that role. Brynner was creepy, cunning and cold blooded - all of the aspects needed for a memorable character!
