Romance is alive, she's alive!

by on 4/14/2002

To most, this movie may seem cliche and simplistic, but to those who have not succumb to the cynicism of the world around us will be able to see what the movie is simply about; the dream of love having the ability to transcend life's harshest moment.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun Times
Review A London critic once described a stage performance by Peter O'Toole as his "Douglas Bader imitation," a reference to the Battle of Britain hero who walked on two artificial legs. O'Toole gives another Bader performance in Creator, lurching perilously through a chemistry laboratory and bludgeoning everyone around him with his lethal charm. It is the same sort of performance he gave in My Favorite Year and The Stunt Man - indeed, it is the basic performance he seems to be giving this decade - and, as usual, it works... The movie was directed by Ivan Passer (Cutter's Way), with his usual attention to personal quirks that preserve his characters from becoming trapped in the plot. I liked all of the casting, and I liked the fact that [Creator] found new combinations of familiar faces; who would expect to find O'Toole, [David Ogden] Stiers, [Mariel] Hemingway, [Vincent] Spano and [Virginia] Madsen in the same movie, and yet who familiar with their work would not enjoy seeing them together?
