Critic Reviews for The Suspect
It's grown-up, deadly serious, and free of the ham-handed romantic subplots that mire so many films from the region in ick stew.
"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.
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.
It's only January, yet perhaps not too soon to call "The Suspect" one of the best popcorn movies of the year.
Director Won Sin-yeon skillfully emulates the you-are-there-but-where-the-heck-is-that? style of the "Bourne" movies.
The convoluted plot is pretty flimsy, but the film boasts a handful of stylish action sequences that keep it from becoming too tedious.
