Huh. This is a movie that tries to do some interesting things and has a few really great scenes, but just doesn't quite come together. Even though Clive Barker insists otherwise, Scott Bakula was very badly miscast in the lead.

Scott Bakula is miscast whenever he is the lead in anything(especially Enterprise). However I really enjoy this movie in spite of him, looking forward to picking it up!

What's weird is that Barker says he liked Bakula so much in the role that he based future depictions of the character in his later novels on Bakula's performance.

Yet Bakula isn't terribly close to the character as described in the original short story ("The Last Illusion"), and he's really not very good in the movie at all.

I've liked Bakula elsewhere. I just think he's miscast in this movie.

Bakula's deadpan performance in The Informant! is absolutely hilarious.
