A review of the movie “John Q” which stars Denzel Washington as a father at the end of his rope and seemingly out of options who takes action in a desperate attempt to help save his son’s life. I found the healthcare scenario in the movie and its implications to be extremely fascinating. Instead of an academic documentary, the filmmakers put together a heart-pounding drama that packs an emotional punch. Where the film went left for me was with the hostage situation which seemed a bit unbelievable.
