Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "The Suspect" hinges on a link between an arms deal and food for North Korea's starving populace. That guns-or-butter dichotomy gives this workout more resonance than you'd expect.
Fresh: The two stunning set pieces, both involving car chases, are so inspired and teeth-grittingly determined that they make the case for the possibility of individual heroism in a harrowingly venal world.
Fresh: Director Won Sin-yeon skillfully emulates the you-are-there-but-where-the-heck-is-that? style of the "Bourne" movies.
Rotten: Witnessing this play out is more exhausting than exciting.
Worth the Money
This film is really good and keeps you interested throughout. Great action scenes in both the martial arts and high-speed chases. Acting is surprisingly good as well (mostly). This week it rents for only .99 cents. Well worth it.
Plot is ok better than average.
Exciting and interesting all the way. A bit lagged in the middle but just briefly.
Action is good.
Great action and good story. For .99 heck yea.
