Melissa Gilbert tries to be a detective in Donor.
7 June 2003 | by (Mamaroneck,New York,USA) – See all my reviews

In this forgettable murder mystery.Melissa Gilbert is a young intern at an inner city hospital.Where a cover up is taking place.Young to middle age men are being used as guenna pigs for an insane experiment.Where they are being turned into terminally ill senior citizens by two renegade doctors(One of them is played by vetrain character actor:Perinel Roberts)who are tampering with the lives of these unfortunate people.Their plans are being thwarted by Dr.Gilbert and by another intern(played by Jack Scailia).Who is really an undercover Drug enforcement agent.Who is assigned to try and check out a lead into a supposed drug peddling scam.But he stumbles onto Roberts mad experiments and he finds out that Dr.Gilbert is getting too close to the villians'plot and she is putting her life and his investigation into jeopardy.The plot is very bare and predictable.And most of the actors in this film do little more than complain about Ms.Gilbert's tampering with a situation that should be left alone.Yet..Ms.Gilbert's performance is enjoyable and she keeps the story interesting.Even if we can guess how it will turn out.
