Good movie ...as long as you don't have high expectations.
12 September 2001 | by pushbuttonkittySee all my reviews

I've never seen the original Suspicion, so I cannot do a comparison of the two. This movie starts off rather slowly, but it has a good build up. Unfortunately, the ending isn't quite emotional enough to be really believable. It left me with the feeling that the story wasn't really complete. As far as performances go, Andrews' performance brings his scoundrel-like character to life. Not a very likeable character, but a great performance. Curtin, however, did not deliver well. One can hardly lay blame on her, however, since she was not the actress to be cast in the role. Over all, the movie was enjoyable, and I'd watch it again, but I'd watch it more for light amusement than as a real thriller.
