It's hard to imagine anyone walking out of this movie satisfied, regardless of Hackman's and Freeman's solid performances.
| Original Score: C-
A powerhouse.....the acting will knock your socks off!
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
Too tawdry to be completely entertaining, and too static to generate much excitement.
Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman can't save "Whodunit?" from becoming "Who cares?"
| Original Score: 2/5
Under Suspicion works less as an absorbing story than an absorbing work of craftsmanship.
| Original Score: B
Hackman and Freeman will pin you to your seat.
Why was Hopkins, the best of whose films is ordinary, hired to construct a film which hangs on psychology and dialogue?
Without Hackman, this ham-fisted psychological thriller -- based on the 1981 French movie Garde a Vue -- would be unwatchable.
Appear to have been shot by a lush and edited with a shredder.
Not even the high-caliber talents of Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman can save this stagy, ridiculously over-baked psychological thriller.
A profound disappointment, given its cast and source material.
Long on talk but short on action.
It's never as good as it should be, with occasional moments of brilliance overshadowed by the gimmicky direction of Stephen Hopkins.
The makers hit us over the head with visual tricks ... that have the odd effect of diminishing the emotional wallop.
Appears to be a somewhat sinister episode of Nightline.
A decent, smart, well-acted film.
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.
| Original Score: 7/10
