Overall the Sound in this film is pretty good. Clear sounds with bass when needed. Gun shots sound good and the score adds to the movie, helping the dramatic scenes shine more.

Rating:4.5 stars


Picture Quality

Disc Format: Blu-Ray

The PQ looks great, Sharp in detail, Colors look good but not candy like due to the tone of the film as its more of a darker set film. Nothing more to say but it looks pretty good on Blu-Ray

My Thoughts

The Suspect runs long but it’s filled with great action and drama that will create motions that are on an up and down coaster. Some scenes may have you on the edge of your seat, some will make you cray and a few will make you smile or laugh, so pretty much the film has every thing.
I highly enjoyed the film as it was mixed with it all, the action was great with hand to hand combat to some shoot outs, a few chase scenes and a story line that was fun to follow. The suspect is an action film but I would say more of a Mystery thriller dealing with spys, espionage, set ups and few small twists. When it comes to films, South Kora doesn’t disappoint. It seems that the films keep getting better. The have great Equipment that makes the movies shine in PQ and Sound and with this film it gets pretty big with its action as if it was A Good Hollywood film. Keep it up guys and Keep on picking up the films Well GO USA.

The Good – Action was tense at times and fun to watch, The story was good and deals with Character building of some of the leads through flash backs, The way the film looks and sounds, Great camera Shots and techniques, The acting was great, Not much to hate.

The Bad – Nothing really to say, some may find it a Tad to long as it runs at 2 hours ad 17 minutes. I felt that at a point when the end kicks in you want more.

Overall the film was a great watch and recommend to watch when you have the time and don’t have to feel rushed. The story is great so dive in, it has back flashes for character building and an ending that can bring tears.

With that said I Highly recommend this film and if I wasn’t coming off of the Raid 2 high with its insane non stop action I Might have given this film a classic.

I give The Suspect a 4.5 out 5. Go buy it

Note: I Know my speakers are way outdated. OPPO Blu-Ray Player is one of the best around and used in most home theaters. The Receiver is pretty good but on the line of out dated. Subwoofer is good with tons of bass but not the theater quality from a $400 Sub. Front speakers are fun with tons of power and are good for standalone’s but higher end sound (Hz) is lower quality. Overall I need to update on all speakers granted I do get decent sound out of them just the higher end falls short.
