Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Too tawdry to be completely entertaining, and too static to generate much excitement."
‑ Paul Tatara, CNN.com
"It's hard to imagine anyone walking out of this movie satisfied, regardless of Hackman's and Freeman's solid performances."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"...at nearly two hours, it's just too much of a good thing."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Why was Hopkins, the best of whose films is ordinary, hired to construct a film which hangs on psychology and dialogue?"
‑ Michael Thomson, BBC.com
"Long on talk but short on action."
‑ Lael Loewenstein, Boxoffice Magazine
"Hackman and Freeman will pin you to your seat."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A powerhouse.....the acting will knock your socks off!"
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat
"Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman can't save "Whodunit?" from becoming "Who cares?""
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"Without Hackman, this ham-fisted psychological thriller -- based on the 1981 French movie Garde a Vue -- would be unwatchable."
‑ Lawrence Levi, Citysearch
"The makers hit us over the head with visual tricks ... that have the odd effect of diminishing the emotional wallop."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"A decent, smart, well-acted film."
‑ Henry Cabot Beck, Film.com
"The cast makes it watchable, which is good because little else does."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Under Suspicion works less as an absorbing story than an absorbing work of craftsmanship."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"Not even the high-caliber talents of Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman can save this stagy, ridiculously over-baked psychological thriller."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A worthy vehicle and tour de force for both Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
