good concept, dull execution..
5 July 2012 | by saadgkhanSee all my reviews

The Good Doctor – TRASH IT (C+) The good doctor is about a young doctor getting obsessed with his teenage patient so much that he change her medicines to keep her longer in the hospital. The scenario is interesting how a young doctor feels disrespected, lonesome and misfit. The moment he finds some attention and affection from a patient he starts to reply on her and goes the extra lengths to keep her in front of his eyes. Orlando Bloom rarely does anything acting oriented since he made his fortune on his luck and good looks solely with Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings trilogy. So coming out of big blockbuster his movie to do this a good idea and I think he did a decent job and kept you engaged. Riley Keough is a fresh face and maybe at this time known being the granddaughter of Elvis Presley and future Mrs. Alex Pettyfer, she defiantly has the potential to go places if right role is provided. So far here and in her first movie The Runaways, she was impressive. The movie had interesting concept but towards the end it went very bleak and kind of trying too hard. So avoid it, not worth spending time.
