Based on the provocative best-selling novel, a brilliant scientist finds the hidden link that can save countless lives, but when a crazed killer uses the same information to play God, millions are at risk. Dr. Jennifer Kessler is the one person who stands in the way of ultimate medical disaster. After witnessing one, then dozens of patients at her hospital mysteriously and unexpectedly die, her search for the truth leads her through a bizarre world of intrigue, passion, and controversial secret medical research. As Dr. Kessler races against the clock to find a way to stop the catastrophe, she finds herself up against an imposing and terrifying conspiracy implicating the entire U.S. insurance and medical system in the process.
I never read the book of Robin Cook, but I wasn't very fond of this movie so I think I will skip the book. Short summary of the story is: A widowed Chief of Staff Dr. Jennifer Kessler (Joanna Kerns) finds out that her patient has died due to some sort of cancer, which she doesn't quite believe because he was fine when he had a check up done not too long ago. When another patient dies the hospital pathologist lets her in on how impossible it is for those patients to have died with natural causes. The hospital administrator Phillip Montgomery (Gregory Harrison) and Jenny get involved, but she still has problems with intimacy after her husband, a researcher passed away in an accident. When a well known researcher approaches Jenny telling her his life is in danger due to a miracle he found he winds up dead in front of her with the same symptoms as her other patients leaving with no clue on to who is behind on all of these killings, but she suspects Dr. Ralph Wannamaker (Robert Englund...aka Freddie Kreuger)who seems to dislike people that cost too much to save. I'd give this movie a 3 out of 10 only because Gregory Harrison looks so wonderful in this and the actors fought hard to keep this movie interesting, but it's the kind of movie you really don't want to see if you're going to the hospital some time soon.
