Wants to be a twisty nail-biter, but never creates much suspense or surprise.
Ian Buckwalter, The Atlantic  full review
 
Orlando Bloom gives one of his most interesting performances; It's a creepy, effectively chilling piece of work.
Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com  full review
 
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.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger  full review
 
Targeting age-old English class consciousness, not contemporary American healthcare woes, the movie is a shrewd commentary on careerism and status.
Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
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.
Sara Stewart, New York Post  full review
 
If "The Good Doctor" isn't a bad movie, it tells only half the story.
Stephen Holden, New York Times  full review
 
The film is anchored and greatly bolstered by Bloom, who delivers a performance of quietly escalating madness.
Nick Schager, Village Voice  full review
 
A creepy, darkly funny bit of entertainment.
Eric D. Snider, Film.com  full review
 
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.
Ronnie Scheib, Variety  full review
