Overall I give the film an 7 of 10.
6 February 2012 | by jjackson1-284-155747See all my reviews

Malcolm McDowell gives an impeccable performance. However, the material he was given to work with was not as good as 'Clockwork'. In fairness, perhaps there was no way it could be. In 'Clockwork', he was somehow more foreboding, more of a sort of superhuman monster; in Suing, he's more accessible, a guy you meet on the street. Maybe it was impossible to maintain the mystery of who the devil is that we saw in Clockwork because of the risk of doing a rehash. I'd give the overall of Satan character a 9 of 10 in this film, vs. a 10 of 10 in the last one. Not quite as good, but still very good.

Satan is a devilish beast - brutal, merciless - takes captives.

Luke's character, on the other hand, fell flat in this film. He was good, bu that's no excuse for what was done to Luke. His character gets a 3 of 10.

The story was much weaker in Suing than in Clockwork. It almost seemed like an excuse to present us with the characters, rather than a story in and of itself. Still, it had no other major flaws, so it gets a 6 of 10.

Overall I give the film an 7 of 10. Very well done with a few weaknesses, well worth watching.
