Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Coma is an extremely entertaining suspense drama in the Hitchcock tradition."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Michael Crichton's slow-paced thriller must have begun with something to say about the morality of the medical profession, but whatever it was is lost in the shuffle of unnecessary narrative detail."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Audiences used to a faster pace today will find the talky first half tough going."
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"This is a tidy conspiracy-theory thriller from Crichton, who accentuates the tension by packing it into a wholly believable, human framework."
‑ , Film4
"Well acted thriller"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"See it and worry."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"The boys'-club politics at the hospital provide the picture with interesting subtext right in line with the sexual dynamics of the period; Bujold proves to be a worthy champion for the feminist cause."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"More entertaining than credible."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Coma wastes a superb performance by Bujold on a simplistic, predictable series of cliched suspense scenes, seasoned with some last-minute moralizing about contemporary medicine."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Pretty creepy stuff hanging around here."
‑ Steve Crum,
"The aftereffect of Coma is a catlike yawn, benign and bored."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"...a genuinely suspenseful mystery thriller, with a conspiracy angle unfolding in due course without a lot of fuss and bother."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A suspense-filled nailbiter that plays on a fear no weapon weidling psycho can top."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"A superb suspense-thriller."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"corny classic thriller"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
