All Critics (20) | Top Critics (14)

The story is about as well-developed as the plot of a pornographic film - with none of the porno's obvious perks.

Star-studded, tensely plotted, and directed with fast-moving brio, Coma is both creepy and absorbing.

Common Sense Media

This is mostly a straightforward, if well-made, thriller with a dependable cast.

A&E'S new take on the 1978 film Coma achieves its main job, which is maintaining creepy and potentially lethal tension, most of the time.

You always admire the craft: the Dutch angles and silhouettes, the silent movie close-ups of faces in torment. The super-cheesy dialogue is just right.
