Wants to be a twisty nail-biter, but never creates much suspense or surprise. full review

Ian Buckwalter, The Atlantic

Orlando Bloom gives one of his most interesting performances; It's a creepy, effectively chilling piece of work. full review

Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com

Its meaning is unclear. Its vital signs are shaky. And before long, the whole frail thing's on life support, just begging for somebody to pull the plug. full review

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger

Targeting age-old English class consciousness, not contemporary American healthcare woes, the movie is a shrewd commentary on careerism and status. full review

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

Whether you take it as a comment on our rote acceptance of authority figures or just a deliciously creepy character study, you'll come away from "The Good Doctor" wanting to keep religiously eating that apple a day. full review

Sara Stewart, New York Post

If "The Good Doctor" isn't a bad movie, it tells only half the story. full review

Stephen Holden, New York Times

The film is anchored and greatly bolstered by Bloom, who delivers a performance of quietly escalating madness. full review

Nick Schager, Village Voice

A creepy, darkly funny bit of entertainment. full review

Eric D. Snider, Film.com

Daly deftly creates a disturbing, Chabrol-like tension that plays on immediate identification with the handsome medico's lonely, shy vulnerability and slow-building horror at the depths to which his self-delusion can sink. full review
