The wronged man
19 April 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Above Suspicion is a mundane thriller that comes across as a made for cable movie. It does try to be hi tech with the use of computers and the internet.

James Stockton (Scott Bakula) is highly valued in his small town where he is a property developer and coach of the school baseball team. He has a wife and daughter who both adore him.

However James recently had to go to the big city for a funeral. The reason is because he is Johnny Mancini, son of a mafia kingpin. Johnny promptly disappeared in murky circumstances.

At the funeral his identity is revealed because the cops were taking fingerprints in secret.

Now they are interested in James because he has a ledger that contains vital information regarding payoffs. Also his wife is becoming suspicious as to his movements and James is under pressure.

The movie makes you doubt James. How can such a nice guy suddenly switch when the heat is on him. It does have a few twists and turn but there are much better films in this genre such as A History of Violence.
