With the new medical thriller the Good Doctor, British star Orlando Bloom finally comes into his own as an actor of substance and a screen presence to be reckoned with. This represents something of a coming out party, playing the challenging role of Dr. Martin Blake, an unassuming man who wants to be good, but is for some unknown reason drawn towards an evil he just can't help. Bloom is perfectly suited for this role, playing the character appropriately low key, as unassuming, calm and is totally convincing. Bloom, has been an actor that has impressed me little with his career choices, but I have always suspected that there was more to him than what we were getting in movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
Dr. Blake on the surface appears as a kind, friendly, outgoing young doctor who's just arriving at his new post in an American hospital under the supervision of Dr. Waylan (Rob Morrow). However, he quickly has a clash with an outspoken Nurse (Taraji P. Henson) over mistreatment of a patient who doesn`t speak english. He also develops an unsavory fascination with a teenage patient, Diane Nixon (Riley Keough), he soon finds himself tampering with her treatment as to keep her in the hospital, thus keeping her close to him.
It's easy to believe that only healthy people would find medical dramas enjoyable, being a less than healthy person myself having recently spent a spell in a hospital, I haven't ever cared much for the genre in the past, there have also been few great films in of this variety. So I wasn't expecting to actually enjoy this film, I shouldn't have doubted, director Lance Daly has made one of the best, smartest and most sophisticated thrillers in a long while.

You can't quite call this movie a suspense thriller, although there are certainly suspenseful scenes in it. What's that noise in the back of the medicine room? Who's there? Will he be caught?

It's more of a quiet, intense character study. A young doctor becomes obsessed with one of his patients. When she is released from the hospital and seems likely to go flitting off with boyfriends, in social circles removed from him - he arranges to make her sick enough to have to come back to the hospital - to him. He does this in a sort of abstracted state of mind. We are never sure how far he really intends his sickening of the girl to go.

But, for a while at least, he succeeds in making her his own, a saintly pallor of a girl transfixed on her hospital bed.

This is a compelling, involving movie. It is brilliantly acted. Every character becomes starkly real on the screen - from the randy, self-seeking orderly - to the Doctor himself. If you like low-key malevolence, this is the movie for you.

Fantasy / action mega-god, Orlando Bloom (LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY, PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN 1-50) stars as Dr. Martin Blake. He's six days into his residency, and out to make a good impression. After an incident involving a patient's missed allergy to antibiotics, Blake begins to seem a bit questionable to his superiors. It doesn't help that he's also become obsessed w/ a former female patient. So much so, that he's willing to go to extremely unethical, even dangerously illegal lengths in order to have her back in the hospital. We soon see just what THE GOOD DOCTOR is really all about, and just what he's capable of doing to get what he wants! Bloom is wonderfully low-key in his sinister role. Dr. Blake is a malignant force, so utterly selfish as to not realize how despicable his actions truly are. He is ruthless in a laid-back way that is far more unnerving than any slobbering maniac! After all, the damage he inflicts is done for "love" and self preservation...

I absolutely adore Orlando Bloom. This movie is definately different from anything he's ever done. Instead of playing the heroic elf or pirate, he plays an egocentric doctor who longs to have power over everyone in his presence, especially his patients. Elvis Presley's granddaughter plays a sick girl who falls victim to Bloom's character; he botches her medications and diagnosis so he can give the illusion that he is trying to nurse her back to health. This is all out of his selfish need to hold power and authority over others. I expected this movie to be s***ty, but I was constantly on my toes. Bloom does an excellent job playing the ironic role of "the good doctor." Also, the ending is absolutely brilliant and highly ambiguous but I won't give it away! I loved this film and highly recommend it, as it is one of the most impressive psychological thrillers I have seen in a long time.

I will be honest, the only reason why i out this was because Orlando Bloom was in it. (OMG I love him :))

This was actually a pretty good movie BUT, it is not exactly what the movie description makes it out to be. It says it is a suspense thriller, but it is subtle. It is not action packed so if that is what you are looking for, you may find it to be a bit slow.

I think as far as acting goes, this is Mr. Bloom's best roll yet (though I loved him as Legolas and Will Turner). This role was a bit more convincing and I really enjoyed it.
