Suspect Zero-the view of georgevader.co.ukBy GeorgeVader from North Somerset , 23 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Suspect Zero is another in the serial killer genre, with it's basic premise being fairly original one. An ex FBI agent (Ghandi, sorry Ben Kingsley) hunting a serial killer who's crime's he can 'see', he in turn is being hunted by another agent (Aaron Eckhart) whom he believes is the killer.
The problem is the film is so slowly paced with lots of pained expressions, arty camera work and flashbacks galore that the first 60 minutes borders on the tedious.
Thankfully things do pick up for the final third of the movie but this doesn't save it from being anything but an average serial killer flick that we've seen far too many times (and better executed-no pun intended!)

Good premise but...By a customer , 27 Oct 2011A decent premise and plot for the genre as well as an excellent cast. However, I found the direction too pretentious... oops, I mean stylised... which interfers with the telling a potentially compelling story.
One of those film that you think back and ponder 'it could have just been so much better if...'
Suspect ZeroBy mattyp91 (236 reviews) from Thatcham , 26 Jul 2010Im a massive fan of Aaron Eckhart quality actor, often over-looked. Sir Ben Kingsley is brilliant as the on the edge psychic soldier of the 60/70s experiment for remote viewing. Youre not sure if his tortured soul of a character, beset by bad dreams, visions and headaches, or Eckharts equally increasingly manic character is the killer or if its someone else out there. I wont spoil it but its a great ending that kept me guessing to the death.
reviewBy a customer from Cleethorpes , 08 Apr 2009not a bad film good cast
AverageBy a customer from London , 02 Jan 2009I'd agree with most that this was a little boring and dissapointing, since it could have been something better, taking into consideration what they had to work with. I'd reccommend a watch, if you have nothing better on your list.
A miised opportunityBy Paul Price from Torquay , 18 May 2007With a genuine 'Sir' starring and a very interesting premise of a killer singling out serial killers as his victims, I was looking forward to this movie.
Unfortunately it's a missed opportunity - with really clunky direction, jerky pacing and a woeful 'remote viewing' side plot I really wished a pair of more thoughtful hands had been in charge.
