(at around 1h 15 mins) When Ted is performing Gwen's autopsy, the entire time the body block (under her neck) is left in place which would have made the autopsy difficult. Usually the pathologist will place it under the back, causing the arms and neck to fall backwards to stretch and push the chest forward to make it easier to cut open. See more »

When brilliant Doctor Ted Grey gets a job working in a University Pathology lab, he falls in with a group of young brilliant doctors led by Doctor Jake Gallo. Grey discovers that the others are playing a game where one doctor kills a person and the others have to work out how it was done. As Grey gets caught up in this, can he find a way out, or is he in too deep....
Pathology is written by Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor. They wrote the insane and fun action movie CRANK. This movie while not as funny as Crank is still insane! The plot is quite daft, and it has to be said full of plot-holes. This could be the result of scenes being cut from the movie, but this didn't bother me at all.
Simply put, this movie was fun.
The cast led by Milo Ventimiglia as Grey and Michael Weston as Gallo are all good. The direction by Marc Schoelermann keeps things moving at a brisk pace. As befits a movie about Pathology doctors, it is quite gory and bloody, but it is never over the top.
Although not a movie that will win many awards, for it's running time, it is very enjoyable and worth watching if you don't take it seriously. One thing though... it may put you off doctors for life!!
