An intriguing premise, and Segal's strong central performance (a break from the light comedies he became famous for in the 1970s) makes up for workmanlike direction. Full Review

Rating: 37/100 -- By the time The Terminal Man reaches its tragic ending, it has succeeded in the dubious achievement of making us view its subject as dispassionately as any clinician. Full Review

The malady here is icy unconcern, and it has spread, unchecked, throughout the picture, so that most life signs have been stilled. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Mind Control. Advances of modern science have removed it from the realm of the mystical into the all-too-probable. What happens when science loses control is the subject of The Terminal Man, based on a novel by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain) and written for the screen and directed by Mike Hodges (Get Carter, Croupier).

Computer scientist Harry Benson (George Segal) has experimental brain surgery to end his potentially dangerous seizures. Electrodes are attached to 40 terminals of his brain to counteract his violent impulses. But there's no escaping his own mind. The experiment has backfired and the seizures return... with a terminal vengeance. Hooking into this visionary tale will unnerve you. But the truth behind its hallucinatory horrors will fascinate and stimulate you."

Product Description:

A computer scientist has an electrode implanted in his brain to control his violent impulses. But when something goes awry he goes on a killing spree in the streets of Los Angeles. From a novel by "Jurassic Park" author, Michael Crichton.
