Paper-thin implausible plot
22 August 2015 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I have seen the entire series and enjoyed it a great deal, but several things bothered me about this movie. I liked some scenes, primarily those involving Elizabeth Quinn, the grandmother.

Since I give the movie a low rating, I will explain why, without any spoilers: First, it is entirely set in Boston, so we see none of our old friends from Colorado Springs. As for the plot, several things seemed impossible or highly implausible. Events that should have taken weeks or possibly months occurred too fast, including a voyage across the Atlantic. And how was it possible to send a message to France in just a day? Marconi had not yet invented the wireless system and telegraphs couldn't be sent across the ocean without that technology. The plot included several paper-thin sequences, including attempted murder (with no credible motivation for such a drastic move) and a sudden medically unexpected death (and no attempt to explain it). Furthermore, I felt uncomfortable with what felt like a glorification of the Quinn women, Michaela and Colleen. Then the glorification of Brian at his new job (which by the way contradicted the naval career he had in the Christmas Carol episode, where Michaela saw the future). I liked it much better when the family had to strive hard for everything. I didn't feel any heart-wrenching challenge in this movie, despite the male-bias at Harvard Medical School that confronted Colleen and despite the discord with old Doctor Cook, Andrew's father (by the way, that contradicts the final TV episode, where Andrew said his parents were dead, and that's why they couldn't come to Colorado for his wedding with Colleen). Brian wore make-up to look older, which looked absurd. Sully wore an obvious and ugly wig of long hair.
