Best suspense ever
20 August 2005 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This is definitely the best suspense I have seen. Original, very exciting plot, that always keeps you on. The suspense builds continuously, with minor descendants, until it reaches the peek in the end. The tension in the end is so high that when I watched the movie I couldn't help myself jumping from my sofa, and this is never happened to me before. In my opinion the movie was flawless in every way. Christopher Reeve and Joe Mantenga delivered us their best.

Very strong movie.

It's a shame that a movie like The Blair Witch Project went to the cinemas after you see Above Suspicion that went only to TV.
