Director James B. Harris originally wanted an orchestral score to accompany the film, but Warner Bros. over-ruled him and hired composers to give the film a more "contemporary" sound. Harris feels the score that was used sounds like a TV movie score in some places. See more »

With everyone battling each other over this movie, I just had to put my own say in it as well.
Boiling Point is a movie that I got for free on a giveaway shelf. There's a reason it was on that shelf.
Boiling Point has less action than any other Wesley Snipes movie I've ever seen. A documentary about real boiling points would've had more thrills than this wannabe actioner.
Almost nothing about this movie made me want more. Wesley Snipes put on an okay performance, but nothing more than marginal. Dennis Hopper acted weird the whole movie with over-exaggerated hand movements that made his character very off-putting. Except for a few killings, there was literally no action in this movie. The story could've been interesting, but instead it moves slow and lags at many places. The cinematography was nothing interesting, no better than any other average movie. And the script was dull and didn't move the story at all.
Overall, this movie was well beyond average, not Snipes best at all. Even The Art of War (and we all want to forget he was in that) wasn't as bad as this movie. This movie has already found its way to giveaway shelves and $.99 bins all over the country. Take that as a warning.
