Editorial Reviews

In SUSPECT ZERO, FBI Agent Tom Mackelway finds himself caught in a cat-and-mouse game with a brutal serial killer, and all clues point to a renegade agent "gone native." Trained by the government to use his psychic abilities to track and capture other serial killers, the renegade is killing other serial killers and claims to be in pursuit of the ultimate serial killer, a man he calls Suspect Zero. As Mackelway becomes increasingly obsessed with his suspect, he must decide what happens when pursuer and prey come face to face – and if rational justice or primal revenge will prevail.

I am usually a huge fan of good suspense movie, but how I missed this one when it came out is unknown. This movie starts off as one that may seem to be about an FBI agent that burned out on "the big case", got demoted, and transfer to the smaller town to keep him busy in paperwork. Thomas Mackelway (Aaron Eckhart, also in the recent film Thanks for Smoking), is this agent, who happens to stumble across, as guessed, a big case in the small town. Benjamin O'Ryan (Ben Kingsley) is a person that becomes of interest to agent Mackelway. Well, this movie does have some of the same things as other suspense thrillers, similar in ways to SEVEN, but with different twist and a much different outcome. In all, a must see if you like suspense thriller. If you liked the movie Seven with brad pitt and Morgan Freeman, then this movie is right up your alley. Check it out, a must own for any suspense fan.

This movie was a very big surprise to me when I discoverd it. Ben Kingsley, Aaron Eckhart, and Kerry Anne-Moss all have strong roles and characters in this film. Eckhart plays an FBI agent who got busted down in ranks and starts over in a desk job in the southwest US. He is assigned a case that quickley becomes more than just a missing persons/murder investigation. Through-out the film, Ben Kingsley and him develop a very unique bond that pulls us throug the movie and keeps us on the edge of our seats until the end. All thing are connected, pretty tight storyline. This is a psychological thriller that should please anyfan of movies like Identity, The Jacket, The Woodsman, and The Machinist. Also Fans of CSI and Law and Order may like this too. This film does not have the boundaries of TV ratings, so it is more gruesome. A must see.

Fact one: Since 1970, more than 90,000 persons have disappeared without a trace. Fact two: "Remote viewing," the ability to access information using the mind alone appears to be a real skill (and something the government has secretly funded)

Edmund Elias Merhige's SUSPECT ZERO (Paramount) is about a chastised FBI agent who may have innate "remote viewing" skills and a serial killer who definitely does.

Merhige's previous films, "Begotten" and "Shadow of the Vampire," are as different from each other as "Suspect Zero" is from either of them.

The tantalizing plot of this film was widely known before production began. But I won't spoil it for anyone who plans to see the DVD. Here's the set up: Aaron Eckhart is a troubled FBI agent relocated from Dallas to a southwestern desert town. A local killing with cultic elements connects with something from his past. Eckhart's former partner, an alienated Carrie-Anne Moss, gets involved. From the start, but known only to the audience, Ben Kingsley is revealed as a very twisted serial killer.

This visually rich, fascinating film is not about so much "who dunnit" but the more about the "why." It's not really a serial killer story and it's not a procedural crime drama about how the killer is caught. Something else is going on here. Director Merhige gives a clue in his cryptic statement: "You must address the underneath (the darkness), or it will devour your... It's the only way to heal the future from devouring itself."

To fully enjoy this unusual film, pay close attention to all the visual elements and then see it again with Merhige's commentary that explains his personal take on this story.

There's a stunning 4 part featurette: "What We See When We Close Our Eyes" and a startling Remote Viewing demonstration involving Merhige himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars OK, this movie should be really, really bad. October 2, 2006
I've come to believe one thing: Paramount makes great movies...Aeon Flux was the exception...

I saw this movie and texted a couple of people, with no positive response...its from Paramount thats a plus. Carrie-Anne Moss who spends her time underacting in such pretty good movies like the Matrix, Reloaded, Revolutions, Memento (which she was pretty good in) and Red Planet. She plays emotionless, yet excitable women, usually and this role is no exception. I have a thing for noses and hers is awful and distracts me through the entire movie. She is definitely an iron weight on this movie, but she does offer a little something...she blends in real well and is forgettable as Detective Kulok.

Aaron Eckhart has been also seen in Paycheck, Erin Brochovich and Any Given Sunday. His acting seems dry and tedious, but he brings something intangible to the screen. It doesn't excite or electrify, but he captivates in "Suspect Zero". He Plays Detective Mackelway.

Oh, yeah there's this other guy, named Sir Ben Kingsley in the movie. He plays the other character, Ben O'Ryan. Ben Kingsley has made alot of roles shine over the years, but none so much as in "Suspect Zero".

The movie centers around three FBI Agents and a case of people gone missing and murdered in New Mexico, specifically on the state line. Yes, it seems like an X-Files Episode in places. Some very strange elements shake nicely into this believable framework and hide a neat science fiction background.

The general interaction between Kingsley and Eckhart is hard to understand, but awesome. The scenes between Carrie-Anne Moss and Aaron Eckhart are forced and laid in, to seem like the X-Files, perhaps. Ignore them, ignore them! Its OK...there's only one or two...get a soda from the kitchen.
