Good thriller

I liked it. The filming is really good and the twists, while not really enigmatic, are good enough to grasp your attention. Eckhart gives a good performance here, and he's really believable as the FBI officer in search for the truth. Kingsley on the contrary seems not at his usual standard, but this is also a consequence of the weirdness of his character. The start is really good, from the cinematic point of view too: you'll think it's a classic horror movie (which is not the case). The ending is not at par with the first 4/5 of the movie but at that point you'll be willing to forgive the director because the rest of the movie is OK.

Good mystery... for patient viewers

After a series of grisly murders FBI Agent Mackelway suspects that they are linked. And that the killer may actually be after another serial killer who may or may not really exist. Naturally, his colleagues think that he is nuts, but that doesn't stop him from investigating. This movie is a perfect example of flawed masterpiece. The plot is very interesting. The plot twists are surprising. The performances are good. The film's originality good enough to enjoy and the suspense is great. However, despite this there is still something missing. Something so critical that even though the film shines in many respects by the end you feel like you could have gotten so much more. That missing element would have to be part pace and part presentation. The film starts very slowly, but picks up once more clues are revealed by Mackelway. Though this is at least halfway through the movie. Then the presentation is a bit weird. It makes the film standout from others, but it also makes it confusing in parts, namely the beginning. Then by the time it is finished you feel more like you have just watched a good X-Files episode. Overall it is a good mystery for patient audiences. --- 7/10 Rated R for grim violence

Excellent production design... Compelling story...

Ripe with powerful imagery, "Suspect Zero" is a movie truly to be watched. Imagery and symbolism are central components of this movie, which pairs a simultaneously composed and tortured Ben Kingsley with the equally composed and tortured Aaron Eckhart, each playing former and current FBI agents trying to compose some meaning to the present from the wreckage of the past. They both have similar giftings - they are able to see the future. Kingsley in particular is tortured by his inability to control this gift. A highly prolific killer is running around the country, picking up children - dozens, probably hundreds of children. He tortures then kills them. We are never quite sure if Kingsley is this killer until close to the end, though the truth is pretty much telegraphed throughout. Eckhart is respectable as the straight-arrow FBI agent who went too far and got knocked down a few pegs in his career. His obsession with the case parallels Kingsley's and makes for an interesting contrast of styles. This movie falls on the side of intense. I admired the production values, which called for hundreds of well-composed charcoal drawings, many of which drive the plot. There is dark, sometimes demonic imagery, though I don't think it's laid on too thick. The visual style reminded me vaguely of "Seven," however no director can quite match Fincher's unique visual composition and cinematography. All the shots are carefully composed and the movie never really falters in its editing and pacing. This is a solid 7 stars. The premise was interesting, plot kept engaging and apace by timing, and the acting solid all around. Why not 10 of 10 in the rating? Perhaps because the movie ultimately didn't strike me as anything special, even given its relatively A-grade production and acting values. It was interesting, engaging, but ultimately didn't seem to amount to much. The story arc seemed to go off a cliff at the end. Certainly, still, a worthwhile viewing.
