Editorial Reviews

The film centers around a small-town that encounters their first armed bank robbery at the exact moment a mysterious stranger appears. With no ID and a combative attitude, the local police struggle to tie the crime to their uncooperative suspect, but the truth is far more complicated.

    Loved this movie! It keeps you guessing until the end. I love movies that make you think, that have a point. I do not like reviews that give you the plot, tell you the story and give away the ending. This is not one of those reviews. I will tell you that this is an riveting movie about two black men who are trying to accomplish something, which they choose to attempt in solely white communities. The racist atmosphere that exists in this kind of community, whether it is open or just under the surface, helps these two black men carry out their plan. There are lots of twists and turns, and topics to discuss social conditions after the movie.

    "You're not from around here. You got no identification. You got no car. You're covered in dirt like you've been digging somewhere and to top it all off..." Two college professors are working on a study in racial dynamics and bias. They plan to rob a bank in a small town record how they are treated before they give the money back. Things are going as planned until they find a sheriff (Sadler) who will stop at nothing to get a positive identification. When the partner doesn't show up with the money to prove it's all an act things take a serious turn. This is a difficult movie to review. It is very good but it's hard to talk too much about it without giving anything away. I will say though that the movie at the same time breaks down and supports certain stereotypes, when you watch you will see what I mean. The best part of the movie though is that you never are quite sure what is going on and it keeps you guessing all the way until the end. This is the type of movie where there is really no defined good or bad guys. That makes a movie more fun to watch. Overall, a movie that stays one step ahead of you the entire time, I like movies like that. I give this a B+.

    My son told me that he had watched a part of this movie, and what he had seen was really interesting but he hadn't seen the ending. So we ordered it from Amazon and watched, what a great surprise this movie was! Very entertaining, the storyline was absolutely genius, and the ending was nothing less than perfection! My son and I really enjoyed watching this movie, and we ended up having a very impromptu movie night. I would recommend this movie very much, it's a great story, and Mekhi Phifer was excellent in his role.

    I own over 1800 dvds and I can tell you that this one is different. Things are not what they seem in this movie or like it says on the cover "Nothing is black and white". The acting in this movie is well done, I always considered Mekhi Phifer and excellent actor. Sterling K. Brown and William Sadler both do a pretty good job also. I don't do spoiler alerts, so I cannot even tell you what this movie is about, because what you think it is about will keep changing.

    Watched this as a 'showing' with the rest of my family and we all thoroughly enjoyed this smart flick! Never saw the ending coming, at least the ending that actually is. The movie is well thought out and smartly written. I can easily recommend this movie as one that keeps you thinking about it, long after the credits have rolled.

    Just when one twist of the plot is revealed, another comes into play. Just when the movie starts to make sense, something else will happen leaving you to think, "I didn't see that one coming." I (personally) really liked this movie and definitely recommend it.

    A bank has just been robbed and small town "by the book" Sheriff Dixon (William Sadler) has a man (Mekhi Phifer) in custody. While interrogating the man about the robbery our suspect constantly tries to goat the sheriff into making a racist comment. The film is filled with flashbacks to present a twist and continued to have flashbacks within a flashback.

    The first twist comes early as we find out our suspect had a partner and did indeed rob the bank. The second twist at about an hour into the film was expected as the film dropped a clue.

    The final twist didn't seem to have much of a clue and goes against character established in the film, although should have been expected.

    A mild thriller. 3 1/2 stars.

    Parental Guide F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

    “The Suspect” has all the polish and professionalism of some grad-school student’s final project for a PhD in Cinema.

    The premise of the movie is so improbable and loopy that it requires a complete suspension of disbelief even to get through it. However, I won’t reveal what that premise is, for to do so would be to engage in the biggest plot spoiler since “The Crying Game.” All I can tell you is that it involves two African-American men who may have robbed a bank in a rural Midwest community. “May” is indeed the operative word here, for it turns out there is far more to the story than what appears on the surface.

    If all that sounds somehow intriguing, then I’m doing more justice to the movie than it actually deserves. I don’t question the good intentions of those who made the film, but it so ineptly directed and so badly acted, so filled with screeds and bromides about racism and justice, and so bogged down by over-earnest plotting and a confusing time-shifting narrative, that even the best of intentions can’t make a silk purse out of this particular sow’s ear.

    I’ve deliberately avoided identifying the individuals responsible for “The Suspect,” both those in front of the camera and those behind it, and I wish them nothing but the best in their future careers in moviemaking. But I doubt anyone will be rushing to claim credit for this underwhelming, if well-intentioned, cinematic misfire.
