Coma: Directed by Michael Crichton. With Geneviève Bujold, Michael Douglas, Elizabeth Ashley, Rip Torn. When a young female doctor notices an unnatural amount of comas occurring in her hospital she uncovers a horrible conspiracy.
“I decided to pick up this film originally because it was an early Michael Douglas movie, and Michael Crighton wrote and directed this screenplay. By the cover it had all the elements for a great movie, and the movie brought no disappointment. It was absolutely intriguing and brilliantly filmed. The background of the cold sterile hospital was haunting and perfect. Each actor whether big or small brought a twist to the story. The main character who played Dr. Susan Wheeler was perfect as the stern, and cold Doctor whou0026#39;s best friend goes in for a routine operation and then is rendered into a mysterious brain dead Coma. Dr. Wheeler begins to notice strange u0026quot;coincidencesu0026quot; around the hospital and starts to investigate other u0026quot;Comau0026quot; cases. What she unravels is a top secret plot that goes right to the very top. The story unravels perfectly and the tension and clues are superb. You canu0026#39;t get a much better 2 hour movie. Itu0026#39;s definately a movie that you might be tempted to pass by but itu0026#39;s worth renting. Michael Douglas is even great, although only in it as a supporting character, as Dr. Wheeleru0026#39;s Doctor boyfriend who she tries to convince something terrible is going on within the hospital. You never know who might be involved in this plot and youu0026#39;re waiting for it all to unravel. The only negative aspect of this movie was the ending happens very very quickly, kind of leaves you feeling a little hurried but still an first class movie. Also look for Tom Selleck portraying a patient/dead body. You canu0026#39;t go wrong with this movie. 8/10”
