Movie Reviews

Terrific thriller with a strong role by Christopher Reeve.
Christian Pelchat | Canada. | 01/04/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When a police detective (Christopher Reeve) got shot and he becomes crippled from a bust gone bad. He fined to a wheelchair and clinically depressed. When his unfaithful wife (Kim Cattrall) Cheats on him with his brother (Edward Kerr), when he finds out, he goes on a revenge and everything are not as they seem to the Ex-Police Detective.Sharply directed by Steven Schachter but the real winner goes to Screenwriters: Jerry Lazarus, William H. Macy (Boogie Nights, Jurassic Park 3) and Steven Schachter. Also actor Joe Mantegna gives a fine performance. Made for Television from the Home Box Office (HBO) Network. Grade:A-."
Prophetic movie about Reeves in wheel-chair.

"This movie was Christopher Reeves last movie before his freak accident that left him paralyzed. The acting is what makes this movie great, but you must get by your emotions during the brother's affair with Reeves' wife. Definitely not for children."
When the writing is good

"ABOVE SUSPICION is a good film. I give five ***** to the main characters including Reeve, Joe Mantegna, and Kim Cattrall. Ms Cattrall proves that nudity properly employed serves to contribute to the plot rather than distract you from it. Mantegna has to handle the old cliche role: "I'm a better cop than college-trained Christopher because I'm a street cop." He does a top drawer job of keeping the "street cop" role on balance. I thoroughly enjoy a movie when the writing is good. In ABOVE SUSPCION the writing was good . . . super . . . the very best suspense entertainment. It was the best suspense movie that I've seen in years. You might find--as I did--that you'll be rooting at one time or another for all of the characters along the way."
Good drama-thriller.

"I liked director Steven Schachter's TV movie "The Con" very much so when this movie was on TV, I decided to see if it was as good as that one. It was. It's about Dempsey, a policeman, who gets shot and, as a result of this, paralyzed in his legs. He gets depressed and the fact that his wife and his brother have an affair doesn't make things better (it's sad and ironic that Christopher Reeve actually got paralyzed not long after this movie was finished).The movie has a good story, I won't tell you too much and spoil it for you, and all of the actors are very good. The movie was co-written by William H. Macy who also appears in a small part (he also co-wrote "The Con"). It works well both as a good thriller and as a drama. Enjoy!"
