With help from his former partner (Carrie-Anne Moss), an FBI agent (Aaron Eckhart) searches for a man (Ben Kingsley) who is hunting and murdering serial killers.
" One of those agonizingly routine police procedurals. "
" Merely adequate. "
" For all its trying, Suspect Zero ultimately fails to hit home. It falls somewhere between a genre picture and arty exploration of big themes. "
" The movie is a black hole of failed ambition that mystifies on every level and offers zero payoff. "
" Suspect Zero never really escapes the shadow of Se7en but has more to say -- and show -- than most of that movie's imitators. "
" [A] pretentiously made and excruciatingly dull thriller. "
" A gussied-up bore. "
" A violent, depressing and often ridiculous waste of time. "
" Slips on the banana peel of exaggerated fear factor, falling facedown with the introduction of an uber-creep serial killer (Ben Kingsley) grimly stalking some hapless prey. "
" The latest evidence that Hollywood has run the se rial-killer thriller into the ground through overuse. "
" Unless this is your first serial-killer movie, you've no doubt seen it all before. "
" A grisly, depraved and wholly uninvolving exercise in empty mannerism. "
" [A] visually jarring, psychologically daring trip that explores terror in a fresh, if crazy, manner. "
" Suspect Zero may be nonsense but at least it's not bland nonsense. "
" The kind of by-the- numbers psychological/ action thriller that Paramount Pictures routinely makes with Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman. "
" Its junkiness shines through its posh patina. Exploitation is just no fun anymore, now that it's all so damn tasteful. "
" Suspect Zero is that rare case of a dull idea redeemed by sharp talent. "
" Suspect Zero knows from creepy . . . and compelling. "
" Suspect Zero is intriguing enough to be worth deciphering. It just delivers zero scares. "
