Storyline

When Dallas FBI Agent Thomas Mackelway violates serial killer Raymond Starkey's civil rights during an unorthodox arrest, Starkey goes free and Mackelway is demoted to a remote branch of the agency in Albuquerque. His first day on the job, Mackelway investigates the murder of a traveling salesman Harold Speck, which turns out to be the first of three seemingly random killings. Or perhaps they are not random at all; the last to die is Mackelway's nemesis, Raymond Starkey. The assignment consumes him. His past mistakes haunt him. His head throbs constantly as he tries to find the link between the victims that will lead him to their killer. The case becomes increasingly gruesome and patently personal. This does not go unnoticed by his unflappable partner Fran Kulok, who knows of Mackelway's past and the demons that afflict him. Like Mackelway, she becomes drawn into the labyrinth of chilling clues, all of which point to the enigmatic Benjamin O'Ryan. O'Ryan clearly has a connection to ... Written by Sujit R. Varma

Sleeper or snorer?
25 August 2004 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

There's a few interesting twists and turns in this film but not nearly enough to save it. Ben Kingsley gives a wonderful performance as a man that has spent too many years looking through the eyes of monsters. Aaron Eckhart is intense as the agent on the hunt. However, Carrie-Anne Moss seems to have text messaged her performance in. The camera work looked good, but was so formula it could have been straight out of a cinematography textbook. It uses virtually every camera trick ever seen in every movie Hitchcock ever made. "Suspect Zero" has the potential to be a thoroughly spellbinding film, but manages to come up short. Out of five stars, I'd rate it 2.5.
