Audience Reviews for Y˘gisha X no kenshin, (Suspect X)
Suspect X is a crime drama from Hiroshi Nishitani that stems from a Japanese drama series, Galileo.The story is straightforward with less of a murder investigation path to follow, however it is interesting enough to hold one's interest. The first 10 minutes is supposedly similar to the series as there is a mixture of comedy and science. Soon thereafter, and for the rest of the 2+ hour picture, the film settles down into a typical murder mystery without that much elaboration for the plot. The thing that makes this film interesting is that the detectives play more of a supporting role as the film becomes a battle of two geniuses. One is a math teacher and the other is a physics professor.The pacing is fairly slow, but it isn't a total bore. The ending tends to get overly dramatic and it ends up being one of the less effective parts of the movie.The acting is good. Shin'ichi Tsutsumi and Yasuko Matsuyuki steal the show, while Masaharu Fukuyama and Kazuki Kitamura give decent performances. Kou Shibasaki is also enjoyable to watch.While taking a different approach to a murder mystery, Suspect X finds itself as a unique watch for fans of this genre.
4/5 Great movie...excellent mystery with a hell of a twist Don't read the info above or the other review from JY...they give way too much information and are wrong. I am surprised that this has not been remade in the US already.
A very worthy adaptation of the book. Chalk on ceiling scene was very moving for me for some reason.
