Denzel gives it his all, in an often ridiculous story. I just couldn't stand the writing of this film.

I enjoy watching Denzel Washington on screen because of his sincerity and realism when he performs. Unfortunately, a film cannot let one skilled actor and a solid supporting cast cannot elevate the quality of a film. This could have been better if the script was good. Such a talented cast, if only the direction, storytelling were gratifying. Even the ending was not satisfying. The message was clear, regrettably the manner of relaying it was problematic. Definitely not one of Denzel's best movies.

Great acting, great plot, great dialogue, and very controversial real life issue (especially at the time). Ending was bitter sweet.

Good acting saves predictible story.

John Q tells the story of a man, John Archibald (Denzel Washington), who is having trouble making ends meet. Since his work week has been cut from 40 hours to 20 hours, he can't keep up on the family's car payments, and eventually losses the car. When his son, Mike, collapses on a baseball field and is diagnosed as needing a heart transplant, John is confident that things will be okay, because he has medical insurance. Unfortunately, it turns out that his Tier II coverage doesn't cover $250,000 operations. The hospital director, Rebecca Payne (Anne Heche), refuses to put Mike's name on the organ recipient list until John can cover the $75,000 down payment. The cardiologist, Dr. Turner (James Woods), claims that the matter is out of his hands. But John's wife, Denise (Kimberly Elise), scre...
