User Reviews

A fast paced triller about something that is all too possible. About how The Spring Of Life could become the Bringer Of Death
26 November 1998 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Thirst was a fast paced medical thriller about an all too possible threat to one of earth's most precious resources - water. All the characters are sympathetic, with the notable exception of the Mayor (there are those who would happily force cryptosporidium infected water down his throat) and the subject is handled realistically. The actors, both male and female are convincing in their roles, particularly Adam Arkin who plays Robert Miller.

A movie well worth seeing
