Good TV movie
16 September 2014 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

Malpractice is an above average TV movie with a more complex plot than most TV movies.

It's an intriguing film and if you stick with it past the fairly lacklustre opening 20 minutes it is pretty rewarding. As well as the murder/intrigue plot there is some nice human interest drama as Lawyer Stephanie Zimbalist and her doctor husband Markus Flanagan struggle to keep their relationship together.

Most TV movies often suffer with average acting but this is not the case here. Zimbalist is charming and Flanagan plays the struggling with depression doctor very well. Gabrielle Carteris plays the villain nurse well.

The ending is a little too rushed and predictable but this is still a film I enjoyed a lot more than I thought I would. Whilst it's certainly not a brilliant movie it's worth watching if you have time to kill.
