All Critics (53) | Top Critics (18) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (23) | DVD (12)

Too tawdry to be completely entertaining, and too static to generate much excitement.

Hackman and Freeman will pin you to your seat.

It's hard to imagine anyone walking out of this movie satisfied, regardless of Hackman's and Freeman's solid performances.

A powerhouse.....the acting will knock your socks off!

The cast makes it watchable, which is good because little else does.

...at nearly two hours, it's just too much of a good thing.

Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman can't save "Whodunit?" from becoming "Who cares?"

Full Review… | November 7, 2002
Netflix

Under Suspicion works less as an absorbing story than an absorbing work of craftsmanship.

Flipside Movie Emporium

Why was Hopkins, the best of whose films is ordinary, hired to construct a film which hangs on psychology and dialogue?

Full Review… | April 16, 2001
BBC.com

Without Hackman, this ham-fisted psychological thriller -- based on the 1981 French movie Garde a Vue -- would be unwatchable.

Not even the high-caliber talents of Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman can save this stagy, ridiculously over-baked psychological thriller.

Long on talk but short on action.

Boxoffice Magazine

The makers hit us over the head with visual tricks ... that have the odd effect of diminishing the emotional wallop.

One Guy's Opinion

A worthy vehicle and tour de force for both Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman.

A slow-moving yet engaging mystery starring two great actors at the top of their form.

Cast:Gene Hackman, Morgan Freeman, Thomas Jane, Monica Bellucci, Nydia Caro, Miguel Ángel Suárez, Pablo Cunqueiro, Isabel Algaze, Jacqueline Duprey Director:Stephen Hopkins

Summary: This remake of a 1981 French thriller chronicles the harrowing experience of Henry Hearst (Gene Hackman), a tax lawyer vacationing in San Juan, Puerto Rico, who discovers the body of a murdered 12-year-old and promptly becomes the main suspect. Local cops Victor Benezet (Morgan Freeman) and Detective Owens (Thomas Jane) will stop at nothing to catch their man, and Hearst must convince them they're mistaken. Who's telling the truth?

My Thoughts: "I thought it was an interesting mystery thriller. You have two greats going at it, Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman. I go back and forth from thinking he did to he didn't. My initial thought was no. Then they bring some uncertain topics up that make you think, "maybe". In the end I really liked how it played out and I was surprised by the ending. I found Thomas Jane to be a little over dramatic and his character to be annoying. But besides that, the acting was good from all."
