5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense classic. 24 Nov 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film has dated well and still has the power to keep the viewer in suspense. Genevieve Bujold gives a convincing performance as the lead,Susan. Michael Douglas also puts in a good showing. Another memorable performance comes from Elizabeth Ashley. I will not go into plot detail and spoil the fun,but can tell you that this is a top quality production. There are moments of terror that I had forgotten about since last seeing this. The settings are everyday places,but are filled with menace.The Jefferson Institute where the final scenes take place, perfectly evokes a sense of coldness and ruthlessness.
This movie is based on a novel,and has translated well to the screen. This is a classic of 70s cinema sci fi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coma 18 May 2005
At the end of the day a well made film will remain a well made film no matter how old it gets. This is certainly true of Coma, which is now 27 years old, but yet is still an awfully good thriller and can still keep the viewer on the edge of their seats.
In fact, the now dated sets and fashions add to the atmosphere of the film and are a great plus to setting of the opinions and prejudices of the day. We soon realise that it is not just the phantom deaths at the hospital that Dr Wheeler has to combat, but it is also the chauvinistic attitude of her male colleagues that she must fight to be taken seriously as a woman working in a man's world.
Genevieve Bujold is extremely good as the suspicious and conscientious Dr Wheeler. She plays the part with great sympathy and never attempts to make her character action-packed as so often happens when there is the need to play a strong female character. She remains feminine and gracious throughout the film and keeps the audiences favour and understanding at all times. Michael Douglas on the other hand is good but not outstanding, he fulfils the needs of his role as Wheeler's lover, Dr Bellows but you never quite believe he actually loves her. Richard Widmark is much better as the creepy Dr Harris, but when you discover it is he that is behind the dastardly plot it doesn't come as much of a surprise.
Other great bits about the film as the eerie and sinister sets, or rather how the film maker makes the normal hospital surroundings seems eerie and sinister. The setting of the Jefferson Institute is sublime though and you now wonder how the architects of the day came up with the plans for such a monstrous building!
The tension building throughout the film is superbly done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A REALLY GREAT THRILLER 27 Sep 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this film many years ago when VHS/Betamax tapes were cool!! It's one of those medical thrilllers that will grab you in the opening scenes and keep you on the edge of your seat for its duration. In the story, patients undergoing routine surgery at a reputable hospital suddenly die on the operating table before being transferred to the Jefferson Institute where relatives are informed their loved ones are being cared for using sophisticated life support machines. As the plot thickens you discover that organs are being traded but who are the real perpetrators?

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't beat this movie 20 May 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Incredibly medically accurate. Might have been made a few decades ago and technology has advanced since then, it still sends chills up your spine. Beats the remake hands down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Female Leads in Film
I rate this film because it one of the last films with a strong female lead, So many these days do not. Apart from Alien of course with Sigourny Weaver.
