Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 04/01/1998
"...Fresh....Witty...and packed with possibilities..."
New York Times - 02/13/1998
"...Acted in a no-nonsense style by a stellar cast....Mr.Hoffman's cool authority is well used here, as are Mr. Jackson's muscular intensity and discreetly mocking air..."
Box Office - 04/01/1998
"...The set-up is intriguing....Levinson keeps the action moving at a fast clip....The film also benefits from its eerie deep-sea setting and some smashing special effects..."

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: February 13, 1998.
  • Filmed at Mare Island, Vallejo, CA, and San Francisco, CA.
  • Director Barry Levinson had previously collaborated with novelist Michael Crichton on DISCLOSURE.
  • Levinson had been interested in directing a science film for years and was drawn to Crichton's story because it reflected many of the themes prevalent in Levinson's other films, such as betrayal, friendship, and loyalty.
  • SPHERE marks Levinson's fourth film with actor Dustin Hoffman, who also appeared in RAIN MAN, SLEEPERS, and WAG THE DOG.
