Movie just "drones" on
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, this is almost virgin territory. The only comments about this movie that I could find were in German. Not a promising start.

It is about a little girl who dies during an MRI. The father tries to find out why, but the hospital stymies his investigation. Nothing original here; just a run-of-the-mill thriller.

Nothing exciting happens until Christa Campbell walks into the room. They head back to his room so the good doctor can give her a breast exam. She is not appreciative.

Billy Wirth and Maeve Quinlan just seem to go through the motions. There was nothing expressive in either performance.
