Consensus: Other than Ben Kingsley, there's not much to like in this preposterous thriller.

J. Hoberman
Village Voice

Slips on the banana peel of exaggerated fear factor, falling facedown with the introduction of an über-creep serial killer (Ben Kingsley) grimly stalking some hapless prey.

Ann Hornaday
Washington Post

A grisly, depraved and wholly uninvolving exercise in empty mannerism.

Russ Breimeier
Christianity Today

Essentially an X-files episode that wishes it were as disturbing and visually arresting as David Fincher's Seven (it's not).

Richard Roeper
Ebert & Roeper

[A] visually jarring, psychologically daring trip that explores terror in a fresh, if crazy, manner.

Peter Howell
Toronto Star

Suspect Zero is that rare case of a dull idea redeemed by sharp talent.

Its junkiness shines through its posh patina. Exploitation is just no fun anymore, now that it's all so damn tasteful.

Seattle Times

A violent, depressing and often ridiculous waste of time.

Prairie Miller
Long Island Press

The self-consciously arty thriller is a sort of one-size-fits-all audience horror orgy, with an intriguing mix of fixations

A good serial killer thriller. Ben Kingsley really makes this movie work with his very creepy performance.
