Editorial Reviews

Dr. Susan Wheeler (Lauren Ambrose, TV’s “Six Feet Under”) is a medical student who grows concerned when she notices a pattern of seemingly healthy patients falling into comas while getting routine surgeries. Her sleuthing puts her career in jeopardy even as she finds a sympathetic ally in a young surgeon (Steven Pasquale, TV’s “Rescue Me”). But as the coma toll keeps rising, she traces the victims to a futuristic recovery facility nearby where she uncovers high-tech medical experiments and unspeakable horrors. She escapes only to be hunted by a crazed psychopath and must return to face ugly truths more shocking than she can imagine.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on September 6, 2012
Format: DVD
I'm a fan of Robin Cook's 1977 medical mystery "Coma." It was his first smash hit which almost single handedly introduced a new sub-category into the thriller genre. It's one of the few books that I've reread several times which is not something that I do very often. I also happen to be a big supporter of Michael Crichton's film interpretation starring Genevieve Bujold and Michael Douglas. But I'm not a purist. I'm not one of those people that say a movie should never be remade. When I heard that Ridley and Tony Scott were on hand to produce a new miniseries based on this story, I was quite excited. A lot has changed in science and medicine within the last several decades, so I thought "Coma" was primed for a spiffy new updating. With a big name cast including Ellen Burstyn (who I could watch in anything), Geena Davis, James Woods and Richard Dreyfuss, this was one of my must-see TV events of the year. What could go wrong? As it turns out, a lot!

Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under, Torchwood: Miracle Day) stars as a med school transfer embarking on a surgical rotation in a new hospital. Her mentor is played by Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me) who seems instantly charmed by the young lady. That's not uncommon though. Ambrose is lovely, to be sure, but four guys are smitten with her in the first ten minutes of this two-parter. Anyway, the screenplay doesn't really connect these two in a believable relationship and they share little chemistry, so a void is left in the center of the narrative. There's never any reason to think he'd go out on a limb for this virtual stranger. On her first day, Ambrose sees one coma patient whom she vaguely knows. Naturally, this causes her to get unauthorized access to hospital databases to go through cases of unexplained comas.

The Coma mini-series is a deplorable mishit from beginning to end. The original movie was quite good, not great; this just misses the mark in almost everything. Here are some points - there are some spoilers below but do not worry - the movie spoils almost everything from you by itself!
1- Dr. Taylor's suicide - not properly explained and forgotten after a while. Also, I would have guessed such a character, if it was a suicide, would have used a gun or some powerful poison. And if it was a murder, which is not suggested, the hanging would be even more difficult to executed in a house with more persons present at the time.
2- The aggression suffered by dr. Bellows in the parking lot - improperly explained and pointless.
3- The Tom Selleck-wannabe character - stupid all the way! (To understand the Tom Selleck reference, see the original movie.)
4- The privacy computer user id issues - clumsy and full of stupid behavior all the way.
5- Why so many visits to the Jefferson Institute? To kill all pretense of suspense.
6- The subplot with the corrupt police officer - not believable and not resolved properly.
7- The surrender at the end when it was obvious that the bad guys were winning all the way - again unbelievable and not motivated by what went on before.
8- The staged auto accident - really? Was there not a simpler, less risky way to kill the person?

I had some trouble with the A&E airing times also; luckily, I DVR everything so that I do not have to suffer commercial interruptiona and among the multiple recordings of the program I finally found a complete second part. The starting times were off in several of these and not just for a minute.

In short, a major, frustrating dissappointment all the way. And a waste of great talent.

I wanted to write a review to alert viewers as to how bad this version of "Coma" is! But, others have written excellent warnings. My response to this film was to buy the original 1970's version of Coma. There is not even a hint, in this miniseries, of a plausible reason why the Jefferson Institute would exist. In the original version, the most chilling part was the realization that the Institute could exist in some form!

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.

I just picked this up because I was excited about it. I didn't know it even existed. I liked the original very much, and thought this would be good because of the great cast. I was very disappointed after watching this movie when comparing it to the original. The original version is much better than this. This version is just ok at best. I picked this up for only 99 cents at a blockbuster that was closing down, and I am so glad I didn't pay much more than that for it. I can't say I don't recommend someone viewing it, but it's more recommended as a cheap rental, instead of buying it. If you can get this for 5 dollars or less, than I would say ok, but definitely not more than 5 bucks or you will regret it. Rating 2.9 out of 5
