    If you could ever point to a movie that really shows that an actor is actually good, it is the Good Doctor and that actor is Orlando Bloom. Bloom gets sh*t on a lot by critics and audiences for not being "good." I personally have no issue with him and he is great in this role as "The Good Doctor." The movie itself is a great low-key thriller that not everybody will like, but I thought wasIf you could ever point to a movie that really shows that an actor is actually good, it is the Good Doctor and that actor is Orlando Bloom.

    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.
