Suspect X
movieXclusive.com, by Richard Lim Jr source: http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/suspectx/suspectx.html
«Suspect X is not a perfect film but it is pretty much close to it. ... It’s a lovely blend of murder mystery and the mysteries of love with a quietly affecting performance by the cast. It also induces one to check out the TV series that this movie is based upon.»
A Nutshell Review, by Stefan S source: http://anutshellreview.blogspot.com/2009/02/suspect-x-yogisha-x-no-kenshin.html
«Those looking for a whodunnit, or an investigative crime drama where the investigators get stumped, would be expecting a totally different film altogether. Instead, the story goes behind and looks at motivation. The deed is done, but the mystery here is the Why...»
InCinemas.sg, by Pei Qi source: http://www.incinemas.com.sg/MovieDetail/detail.aspx?MovieID=1660
«Suspect X is a movie that feeds you most of the big picture, at the same time twisting your mind into pondering over alternate scenarios. It’s also a bit of a love story, and a battle of wits between a Physics genius and a Maths one. It is a lot of things.»
PHOENIX PLUME, by SOPHIA LEE source: http://www.phoenixplume.com/phoenixplume.com/Features/Entries/2009/4/2~~~_X.html
«The movie felt a little long, but most of the time, it engages the viewers because it isn’t one of those predictable Hollywood standards. It concentrates on the interaction between people and how not everything can be calculated and measured in mathematical or physical ways. ... I don’t see this movie seizing the box office crown, but for its originality and interesting plot, it’s a B+. »
