| Adequate UK TV-style Low-Budgeter
A decently made,fairly entertaining attempt to make a mini-budget suspense spy thriller with a very familiar British cast;the supporting players are actually more characterful than leads Tony Britton and Virginia Maskell;Ian Bannen was usually cast in intense roles and he does a fine job here as a tortured and tragic soul disabled by circumstance,and there's reliable support from such British stalwarts as Donald Pleasence,Thorley Walters,Raymond Huntley and Kenneth Griffith.The quirkiest performance though comes from legendary comic genius Spike Milligan as an Irish caretaker;his scenes of comic relief work quite well,though there isn't enough of them.

The limitations of production sometimes work against the film,as does a fairly routine and unremarkable plot,but some neat touches by the Boultings,as well as the above performers,make SUSPECT a perfectly watchable effort.
