Goofs

When the Sheriff is talking to the deputy at about 18 minutes or so, I noticed that the rank insignia they wear is not correct for their rank in the department. They are wearing Army rank insignia on their epaulets and the deputy is wearing Corporal rank which is a higher rank than the rank the Sheriff is wearing, which is Private First Class. It should be the other way around since the Sheriff is supposed to be higher in rank. Oops. See more »

Thriller? For whom?
17 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How about this: two white guys go to a place where the racist crap that they and their ilk have practiced for generations plays way, way wrong for them?

Now, let's look at the line-up on this movie: what, two or three non-whites... AAaaand how many whites?

So, many years after the Civil Rights Movement -- and with all that's happened between then and now -- we need to have a white director and writer and a largely white cast "tell" us what's going on, huh?

Does the movie "expose" anything? If you think that, and you've lived, for any significant stretch, in the USA, you've been choosing to not "see" what's been going on in this country, since its inception.

"The Suspect" is, essentially, a racists' fantasy flick: imagine all those goody-two-shoes-PC types getting their comeuppance; revel in the fact that not only do things remain the same, but blast it out in a movie and pat yourself on the back.
