The boys'-club politics at the hospital provide the picture with interesting subtext right in line with the sexual dynamics of the period; Bujold proves to be a worthy champion for the feminist cause.

Audiences used to a faster pace today will find the talky first half tough going.

A suspense-filled nailbiter that plays on a fear no weapon weidling psycho can top.

November 27, 2007

This is a tidy conspiracy-theory thriller from Crichton, who accentuates the tension by packing it into a wholly believable, human framework.

Coma wastes a superb performance by Bujold on a simplistic, predictable series of cliched suspense scenes, seasoned with some last-minute moralizing about contemporary medicine.

The aftereffect of Coma is a catlike yawn, benign and bored.

Crichton does Cook in this engaging (if dated) medical thriller.

Michael Crichton's slow-paced thriller must have begun with something to say about the morality of the medical profession, but whatever it was is lost in the shuffle of unnecessary narrative detail.

So scary and so effective after all those years.
