An intermittently fascinating character study about a plain man who does evil things for selfish reasons.

...the picture never pushes the creepiness of Bloom's doctor far enough to make the experience wholly effective but it's fun to watch Bloom stretch his legs in a sinister role.

A solidly constructed little character study of dark romantic bloom commingled with slipping-knot mental instability.

Visually capturing that chemistry between god-in-training and his just rewards silently sums up the film long before the kindest cut of all.

Wants to be a twisty nail-biter, but never creates much suspense or surprise.

... a tale of quiet obsession ... one of those queasy little thrillers, like One-Hour Photo, that'll have you talking back to the screen, shouting, 'No, he wouldn't possibly do THAT!' And then he does.

[VIDEO ESSAY] "The Good Doctor" is a seriously creepy Euro-styled thriller. Regardless of their position on Obamacare, no one who sees this movie will feel any better about being a hospital patient.

Orlando Bloom gives one of his most interesting performances; It's a creepy, effectively chilling piece of work.

Daly uses Bloom's chilly exterior to hook you into the often preposterous doings ... It's just plausible enough to give you a good case of the chills.

It's too bad that the events leading up to it are so ridiculous that they undermine what's otherwise a powerfully disquieting denouement.

Its meaning is unclear. Its vital signs are shaky. And before long, the whole frail thing's on life support, just begging for somebody to pull the plug.

Targeting age-old English class consciousness, not contemporary American healthcare woes, the movie is a shrewd commentary on careerism and status.

Whether you take it as a comment on our rote acceptance of authority figures or just a deliciously creepy character study, you'll come away from "The Good Doctor" wanting to keep religiously eating that apple a day.

The film is an observant examination of cognitive dissonance, the torment felt by a person who is simultaneously holding two completely opposite values.

If "The Good Doctor" isn't a bad movie, it tells only half the story.
