    The first half is an 8 the second half is a 5. I just didn't fully believe that this straight laced doctor would go to such lengths just to see his patient. Overall I would slightly recommend this film.

    Every now and then comes along a movie that is just so annoying that you wish you could jump into the screen and sort out one or more of the characters.. this is on of those. The acting is of course good, but the story line leaves a lot to be desired. The way the film randomly goes in one direction to another with various characters coming and going, it feels like the writers had too many ideas, couldn't figure out which way to go with the film and/or a way to bring it all together to finish it. So they resorted to abruptly cutting it short(?), leaving the viewer to ponder the fate of the 'good doctor. We're left with an unresolved mess of a movie. Annoying to say the least. Expand

    Keough is nearly worth risking life (Diane's) and limb (Martin's) for. The eldest grandchild of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, she has a pale, dreamy lusciousness that puts as viewer in mind of Amanda Seyfried, though without the overt sexuality. Her not-quite-there appeal matches both the opacity of Martin's intentions and the entire underhanded, underwhelming experience that The Good Doctor offers.

    John Enbom's slow-burn script avoids overloading the action with backstory or psychologizing, and Bloom strikes the right balance of diffidence, panic and blank-itude to keep things creepily on edge.

    Ever wonder what "Scrubs" would've been like if Zach Braff's fledgling-doctor character was psychotic instead of goofy? I get the feeling John Enbom, screenwriter of The Good Doctor, has.
