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

    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.

    This A&E miniseries is exuberantly batty.

    Coma still provides a few arresting images of what happens to the coma victims, but there's simply too much silliness in the overwrought second half.

    [Coma] is sometimes entertaining, sometimes infuriating.

    With more time, this Coma might have provided more thrills and chills, and also explored some of the monumental issues raised by changing technologies, corporate interests, and political frameworks. Unfortunately, it doesn't do any of this.

    Plodding and stupefying when it's not being laughable and poorly acted, this is entertainment fit for an alternative to water-boarding.

    Even though the miniseries has its own appeal it slowly loses quality... the effects are really good and there a some parts with a few good suspense but the rest the performances were not so good and the ending was just awful... Ellen Burstyn however does an amazing job with that crazy hair and smile... Collapse
