October 9, 2012
Wants to be a twisty nail-biter, but never creates much suspense or surprise.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10

It's too bad that the events leading up to it are so ridiculous that they undermine what's otherwise a powerfully disquieting denouement.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10

It's a portrait-as-thriller whose fundamental elements are all fine, but whose protagonist just isn't as grippingly complex as the film needs him to be.

The Good Doctor isn't a ponderous bore because Blake isn't a strictly good or bad character: It sucks because he isn't even a compelling character.

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.

The Good Doctor is far more content to creep you out than to offer a critique.

Suspense is anemic in this dark hospital drama about a resident getting too intensive in his care for an attractive patient.
August 26, 2015
An intermittently fascinating character study about a plain man who does evil things for selfish reasons.

Orlando Bloom gives one of his most interesting performances; It's a creepy, effectively chilling piece of work.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

It's a film stronger in the moment than in the rear-view mirror, generating some interesting tension along the way, most of it content to creep into view.

[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.
