Playing God (1997)

Stripped of his medical license after performing an operation while high on amphetamines, a famed LA surgeon abandons his former life only to find himself crossing paths with an infamous counterfeiter.

Despite the star cast and routine production this is a quite unoriginal and weary crime thriller.

Halliwell (no star): "A lugubrious central performance sinks this sluggish, predictable thriller."

Maltin*1/2: "Preposterous story...The improvised medical treatment is so completely laughable, it upstages the absurdity of the story line. Why this movie was made is truly a case for The X-Files."
