YesAsia Editorial Description

The action never stops in the intense fugitive thriller The Suspect starring Gong Yoo as a former North Korean spy on the run. Directed by Won Sin Yeon (Seven Days), The Suspect dishes out one high-octane chase and bloody shootout after another as the framed protagonist takes on the army and assassins alike. Park Hee Soon (The Client) co-stars as the dogged military man on the chase, along with a supporting cast that includes Jo Sung Ha (Commitment), Kim Sung Kyun (Hwayi: A Monster Boy), Jo Jae Yoon (Miracle in Cell No. 7) and Yoo Da In (Re-encounter).

Ji Dong Cheol (Gong Yoo) was once one of North Korea's best agents, but he has settled quietly in the South as a defector since being betrayed by his government. He goes on the run after getting framed for the murder of his boss, who was developing a secret formula that could greatly affect the North-South power balance. Colonel Min Se Hoon (Park Hee Soon), a tough-as-nails spy tracker whose unit was wiped out by Dong Cheol years ago, is called in to lead the manhunt. Dong Cheol, meanwhile, is on a hunt of his own when he realizes the murder case is part of a greater conspiracy that links back to the massacre that claimed the lives of his family.

Professional Review of "The Suspect (Blu-ray) (Japan Version)"

July 28, 2014

This professional review refers to The Suspect (2DVD + OST) (Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
Popular Korean actor Gong Yoo is framed and goes on the run in The Suspect, a fast-paced blockbuster thriller directed by Won Sin Yeon, whose last outing was the hit Kim Yoon Jin kidnap drama Seven Days back in 2007. The all-action film is a bit of a change for Gong, most recently in the controversial Silenced and best known for his roles in romantic comedies like My Tutor Friend and television series such as Coffee Prince and takes on the currently popular theme of North Korean spies hiding out in the south and getting caught up in murderous conspiracies. The film also stars Park Hee Soon (The Client) as the man charged with catching him, with a supporting cast that includes Jo Sung Ha (Commitment), Kim Sung Kyun (Hwayi: A Monster Boy), Jo Jae Yoon (Miracle in Cell No. 7) and actress Yoo Da In (Re-encounter).

Gong plays Ji Dong Cheol, a former top North Korean operative who now lives in hiding in the south as a defector after being betrayed by his own government. His quiet life is thrown into chaos after he's framed for the murder of his boss and fellow defector and is forced to go on the run, pursued by General Min Se Hoon (Park Hee Soon), who has a personal grudge against Dong Cheol. Aided by a feisty documentary maker (Yoo Da In), Gong tries to get to the bottom of the assassination, linked to a mysterious formula which may or may not be for a new and deadly chemical weapon. With Se Hoon and the director of national intelligence (Jo Sung Ha) on his trail, things get personal for Gong when it becomes clear that the conspiracy also involves the killing of his wife and child years back.

To say that The Suspect was influenced by the Bourne films would be an understatement, director Won Sin Yeon clearly having studied every shot in Paul Greengrass's shaky-cam playbook, with a dash of Mission Impossible tossed in for good measure. Thankfully, though the film is undeniably derivative, Won is a talented helmer and manages to distil the Hollywood thriller formula into something intense and exciting. Indeed, it's hard to remember a film that was quite so action packed, the fast-moving plot fairly sprinting from set piece to set piece and Won throwing in a non-stop procession of chases, shoot-outs, fights and explosions. It's all tightly handled, sharply edited and well-choreographed, with some fantastic stunts (most of which were apparently performed by Gong Yoo himself, making up for his lack of dialogue with a physical and rugged turn) and flashes of hard-edged brutality helping to make for some of the most spectacular and impressive sequences in recent Korean genre cinema.

Credit is also due to scripter Lim Sang Yoon, who also wrote and directed assassination thriller A Company Man and who here does a solid job of weaving an engaging conspiracy plot ?the North Korea theme, somewhat overdone in the last few years, has more depth than usual, the final revelations making for an interesting twist. Heavy on betrayals, politics and scheming, the film does recall Ryoo Seung Wan's The Berlin File with similar rainy grey palette and cynical take on the Korean authorities, though it's in general more concerned with its action than its narrative. Clocking in at about two hours and fifteen minutes, it's undeniably a bit overstuffed, markedly so during the inevitable sentimental conclusion, though for the most part Kim and Lim successfully hold the interest despite the general lack of originality.

The Suspect certainly went down well with local audiences, pulling in over 4 million admissions at the box office, and its successful reworking of Hollywood genre techniques should ensure a similarly appreciative audience overseas. Having tackled everything from psychotic bullies in A Bloody Aria to a haunted thatch in The Wig, Won Sin Yeon now proves himself an adept blockbuster director, and gives the film the genuine sense of breathless excitement missing from so many of its peers.

Car Smash Overdrive Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
No doubt The Suspect has a very strong scent of Jason Bourne’s aftershave (although by the intense action here is any scent other than dank sweat evident?), with fierce espionage, insane car chases and smash/flip ups (with chroma key help of course), roof top shoot outs, long brutal and nasty fight sequences, underground surveillance bases with screens as large as tennis pitches and that shift shaky camera thang (I’m sure there should be a comedy skit about shaky film camera men...lol) - the Bourne type of thing. But if to say ‘The Suspect’ is merely a Bourne clone, it probably is but a very well made one. The exploits are convoluted but far easier to follow than recent SK flicks like ‘The Berlin Files’ (that was good, but my head hurt after watching it). The story is a rollacoaster ride from the onset about a North Korean defector Dong Chul (Gong Yoo), who becomes public enemy number one when blamed for the murder of his South Korean employer chairman. The chairman on his last breath after being injected with a lethal substance by a corporate assassin gives Dong Chul a spectacle case carrying a biochemical formula and asks him to bury it. With a military NISA surveillance agency on Dong Chul’s tail he’s chased by not only NISA bad man Seok-ho (Seong-ha Jo) for the formula, but also a very angry spy tracker General Se-hoon (Hee-soon Park) after Dong Chul had wiped out nearly all of his military unit. Dong Chul trained within a torturous NK ‘special unit’, survives like a killer machine. Dong Chul though has personal reasons aside to the murder frame up; revenge for the death of his wife and daughter and the agent who killed them.

A nasty and fierce action thriller that rarely gives you much of a breather (certainly Dong Chul doesn’t get much), but a solid and very good Bourne type. Not that it’s all hard edged as there are humorous aspects with Hee-soon’s General and his gum chewing side kick (Jae-yoon Jo), who the latter brought to mind gum popping mercenary Molly from William Gibson’s Neuromancer (well for the gum chewing anyway as Molly fits more fierce with Dong Chul). Goon Yoo performs one fierce Mr Vengeance though with nasty fight scenes that rival Bourne Ultimatum. It has a befitting and positive ending though (well except the VERY end as that’s more Dong Chul baby machine work). Verdict – Goon Yoo is superb as the Bond/Bourne action man and The Suspect is a very good action thriller clone. If you like steel movies, its one worth seeing.
