    It's just suspenseful and clever enough to keep you happily intrigued. [3 Sep 2012, p.39]

    Alas, there are enough reminders of real life--including an early suicide--to dampen the fun of this guilty pleasure.

    Sure, the plot's ridiculous, but the film's mostly fun, while the pleasure of watching Burstyn play a homicidal wacko is not to be denied anyone.

    The Scotts have held onto enough of the memorable 1978 movie adaptation of Robin Cook's novel to pay tribute, but added enough to make it feel contemporary.

    In the end, this is mostly a straightforward, if well-made, thriller with a dependable cast.

    Once the story finds its pulse, Coma is fun, but there are a few hiccups.
