Well, it depends on what you expect in a thriller.
How about a medical thriller with Grant as Dr. Gene Hackman is the mysterious Dr. Lawrence Myrick, in other words, the villain. And they stack the deck in the dramatic confrontation between the good guy and the bad guy at movie's end.
If you're a fan of Grant or Hackman, you won't mind. If you're a thriller junkie, you may wonder why video movies have such a lousy rep, compared to these high-priced star fests. The drag about all this is that Michael Apted, the most thoughtful and engaging of directors, is at the helm.

Instead, the movie settles with average. Hugh Grant is a likable character, and does well with this new role in a “thriller.” While “Extreme Measures” is an appropriate name, it is not memorable and seems awkward somehow with the story of this film.
