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

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?"

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

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

Appears to be a somewhat sinister episode of Nightline.

An engrossing, gem-hard little popcorn-cruncher.

A decent, smart, well-acted film.

One wonders why Hackman needed to wait for a score of years to get this film produced given its mastery of the techniques of detective thrillers.

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

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

Though flawed and not nearly as electrifying as the material promises, the project still squeaks by thanks to taut direction and solid acting.

Ninety percent of this thriller is absolutely terrific; but the 10 percent that fails is so troubling that it threatens to undermine all that is wonderful in the rest.

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.
