Professional Reviews

Chicago Sun Times 0 of 10
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? - Roger Ebert
