Witnessing this play out is more exhausting than exciting.

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.

Audience Reviews for The Suspect

This definitely had a plot that's been used often (kind of Bourne for South Korea). A bit long with some unnecessary fight scenes, but still quite an enjoyable action flick overall.
