2.0 out of 5 stars COMA IS A MEDICAL MISFIRE, September 6, 2012
This review is from: Coma (Mini-Series) (DVD)
A&E's four hour reworking of Robin Cook's COMA suffers from unnecessary padding like the bizarre psycho stalker subplot) and a lack of strong leading performances. Lauren Ambrose and Steven Pasquale don't have a lot of chemistry or conviction. Ellen Burstyn's looney curator may be her worst performance ever and name stars like James Wood, Richard Dreyfuss and Geena Davis collect paychecks. Makail Salomon's direction uses too many pointless detours and chase scenes that are more annoying than suspenseful. Ultimately, COMA seems an unnecessary retread, making the original seem a classic in comparison.
