In Geneva, he meets with a respected Swiss banker who tells him he has been designated to be executor of a huge four and a half billion dollar trust fund designed to make reparations for the war crimes of the Nazis. Holcroft's father, who committed suicide in 1945, was a key Hitler financial advisor, who became conscience-stricken about German war atrocities, turned against the Führer, and covertly diverted Nazi funds to a secret Swiss account. Under the terms of the covenant, Holcroft must locate the sons of his father's two associates so they can jointly activate their fathers' account. They battle the sinister forces seem to be trying to prevent them from signing the document, as it is believed that it will be used to establish a Fourth Reich.

Excellent action flick, in the line of the Jason Bourne movies.

I usually don't watch much Korean cinema, but I love action movies and so, when I read the reviews on this one, I decided to give it a try. And I wasn't disappointed in any way. Solid action, with fight scenes that are not martial arts based, but instead are more like the Bourne franchise, brutal and practical. Very tense moments of manhunt, and two excellent car chases, rivaling with the best that Hollywood puts up. Acting is solid and characters are well developed, the background stories consistent, without breaking the action and never slowing down the movie. The plot also makes perfect sense and you don't need to suspend your brain or logic, nor is it necessary to waste a lot of dialog to explain things. I can say that I am pleasantly surprised by this movie and I hope that Korean cinema can gives us more films like this. A solid 8.

South Korean movies are awesome BUT

The women.....oh how annoying. They are unattractive in a funny way and worse than that they are ALL whiny and screechy. It's so annoying. Can't stand them crying or whining - just want to hurt them. Sounds bad but after watching 83 movies in 19 days it'll get to you too.

Movie was awesome.

Wonderful action movie, in fact, a treat!

A lot of the reviews compared The Suspect to Bourne movies. That's more than fair. The story is similar (corruption in high places), and especially the fighting and the action sequences remind one of Bourne (it's not really kung-fu). There's two brilliant car chases that would easily be in a car chase top ten and some classic images, such as a tense scene on a cargo boat seen from above, the hero hanging from a cliff or actually being hung, and the hero rooftop-flying through densely populated suburbs of Seoul. It's just about entirely in Seoul though, so doesn't have the international pedigree of Bourne or Bond. The score is similar to Bourne or the Christian Bale Batman movies, though doesn't ever move to high energy popular tunes as with the Moby car-chase sequence in Bourne. The Suspect is very easy on the eye, with good looking actors, wonderful cameras and editing, and plenty of great shots of many aspects of a crowded Seoul. It has a huge cast, is fast and non-stop, and is definitely big budget. There are mind-boggling crowd and traffic scenes. It's just as professional and interesting in its skullduggery one on one scenes too. I'd love to give it a 10, but for someone whom doesn't speak Korean, well, the story was really complicated, to a point where most of us might still have questions as to what the essential secret actually was, and a lot of the dialogue was snarling sarcasm. Maybe that was an aspect that really appealed to specifically Koreans. The ending had me, brilliantly, in tears. It was totally original and well worth the extra length of the movie. On my dvd there were a few promos for other similar Korean movies. I've also heard from the radio that Korea is now producing some wonderfully original and engaging TV dramas (look up Netflix), and not just in the action genre. All up The Suspect is very good news indeed.
