A mystery you can solve in the first 30 minutes
Warning: Spoilers ahead

Nicely filmed, with good atmosphere, but a pretty lame plot. I had the surprise plot twist at the end figured out in the first half-hour: standard thing about mysteries is that at least one person is always lying. When you only have one person telling a story, it's pretty easy to figure out whom that would be.

But an enjoyable film to watch in any case. Worth renting, not worth buying. Definitely not worth its place in the top 250 films.
Review-The Usual Suspects
Review: The Usual Suspects 'The Usual Suspects' a crime-drama mystery about a survivor telling a policeman about the events leading up to a shootout on a boat, which all started when five criminals met in a supposedly random police line-up. Directed by Bryan Singer and starring Gabriel Byrne, Benicio Del Toro, Pete Posthlewaite, Steven Baldwin and Kevin Spacey. Released in 1995 it is a film with great characters and a very engaging story. The usual suspects starts out with 'Verbal' excellently played by Kevin Spacey' who is being grilled by a U.S customs agent after being one of two survivors of a catastrophic shootout on a boat. Verbal reluctantly recounts how he came to be on the boat starting with him meeting 4 other criminals in a seemingly random police line-up. Firstly what makes this film great is the acting especially Kevin Spacey's acting. My favourite scene in the film is the police line- up. It is a very iconic, well known scene. It is very funny. What makes it funny is that apparently it was supposed to be a serious scene but the actors were messing around and injecting a bit of humour into it. Even director Brian Singer adlibbed in a line: 'In English please?' I love the acting in this film. Benicio Del Toro's mumbling is appreciated. I enjoyed seeing Kevin Spacey's fast talking' innocent and shy manner is extremely captivating. Gabriel Byrne has a very convincing role as an ex-criminal trying to start fresh. Stephen Baldwin does a great job of playing the smart mouth, cocky professional of the group. Bryan Singer expertly uses tension and suspense to deliver a mind blowing twist at the end. I would absolutely recommend watching this film for a second time. Watching it again and seeing all the hints that the director had subtly snuck in is a very satisfying thing and enhances the overall experience. What I think makes this film great is the fact that it didn't have a huge budget, there's not any over the top special effects, the acting is great, it has a relatively easy to follow story line and then the ending is like the cherry on top.

In conclusion I think everyone should see this film at least twice. The acting is excellent especially Kevin Spacey, the story is great and the twist is just right. Overall I give this film a 9/10. It's just so likable and re-watchable.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled...
1995's beautifully structured "The Usual Suspects" is really a very simple story. One of only two survivors of a ship explosion (Kevin Spacey) tells a story to the police detective (Chazz Palminteri) in charge of the case about how five career criminals - the "usual suspects" - met in a lineup and wound up working for the man whose very name strikes terror into the hearts of men - Keyser Soze.

As a result, two names were on everybody's lips for some months to come: Kevin Spacey and Keyser Soze.

With a crackerjack script by Christopher Quarrie, great direction by Bryan Singer and terrific performances, The Usual Suspects couldn't miss. And it doesn't. Thirteen years later, I remember it as vividly as the day I saw it. I just saw it again, and it's as good as ever.

Its other stars are the handsome Gabriel Byrne as Keaton, a bad cop who at one point faked his death to avoid criminal charges; and Stephen Baldwin, Benicio del Toro, still a distance from stardom, Kevin Pollak, and Giancarlo Esposito as Kobayashi, Keyser Soze's persuasive assistant.

As a scared, not very bright gimpy man, Kevin Spacey is a knockout and well-deserving of his Oscar, his Golden Globe, his SAG Award, his New York Film Critics Award and all his other honors. The writer, Christopher McQuarrie, justly won the Oscar and several other awards. The film and director Singer probably deserved more awards than they received, but it doesn't matter. The Usual Suspects is a modern classic.

The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world he didn't exist...and then he's gone.
Ridiculously Overrated
People find so much in good in this film. How? I've seen it several times trying to find something that pleases me but I haven't! I have seen masterpieces of cinema that I thought were brilliant and here, The Usual Suspects is on the top 20 of the best films for IMDb! What am I missing? The script was nothing spectacular! It was slightly above average as was the acting. Granted, Spacey's performance was good, but the supporting characters were nothing special at all. How did this film win two Oscars? People who found this to be a masterpiece should watch more films. If you haven't seen it and are wondering what all the fuss is about, it's nothing at all. This film is ridiculously overrated, most overrated film of the 90's, I'd dare say.


Movie relies too much on the Twist
Going in to this movie, I knew what the twist ending was. A friend of mine told me about it a while back, but I didn't really care because I didn't plan on seeing the movie. Well recently I saw that it was on Netflix and decided to see if it was as great as everyone had said it was. After watching I can't really understand why people are raving over this movie. The movie was boring for most of its running time and didn't feel any better than a mediocre crime film. Even though Kevin Spacey won an Oscar for his performance, I thought his acting in this movie didn't even compare to his role in American Beauty or even Seven (where he didn't win the Oscar).

I know some people might say that I might have enjoyed the movie better if I didn't know the true identity of Kevin Spacey's character before I watched that movie. That may be true in a little sense, but that shouldn't be the whole reason why I didn't care at all for this movie. A WHOLE MOVIE CANNOT BE ENTIRELY RELIANT ON A TWIST. If a movie was so great, it should have other elements that make it great. Not just the twist at the end! For instance, I recently watched the movie Gone Girl and I knew the twist of that movie because I had read the book beforehand. Just because I knew what was going to happen in that movie that didn't stop me having a great time watching the film.

Another thing about the twist is that while watching the movie there were no clues given to the audience (clipboard or anything else was not seen). The movie makers never gave us an opportunity to second guess the true identity of Kevin Spacey's character. Therefore watching the movie a second time doesn't feel any different because you wouldn't be able see any clues about the ending. A twist is supposed to enhance the viewing experience (something the twist of The Usual Suspects doesn't do at all).

All in all this movie is vastly overrated. I believe some people get so caught up in the twist of this film that they were blindsided to how boring the film was for most of it's running time.
A stone cold CLASSIC!
'The Usual Suspects' has received a lot of comment for its killer twist ending, which while by no means the first in movie history, has proved to be enormously influential (stand up Messrs. Fincher and Shyamalan...). But this movie is so much more than a surprise ending! It is a meticulously scripted, faultlessly acted masterpiece that stands up to repeated viewings. Every single time I watch it I notice some new detail, or get more enjoyment out of a performance or scene.

This movie really put Kevin Spacey on the map, but everyone in the ensemble cast is outstanding, even Stephen Baldwin(!), who has never appeared in a movie this good before, or since. I also got a kick out of the Paul Bartel ( 'Death Race 2000', 'Eating Raoul') cameo, and the ultra-cool Peter Greene's ('Laws Of Gravity', 'Pulp Fiction') all too brief appearance. Bartel is sorely missed, and Greene one day (mark my words!) will become the star he deserves to be.

Director Bryan Singer has yet to live up to the promise shown here with his subsequent movies, the average 'Apt Pupil' and the disappointing 'X-Men'. For all the acclaim he and the (admittedly superb) cast have received, the real star of 'The Usual Suspects' is Christopher McQuarrie's sensational script, one of the finest of the modern era, and one that genuinely deserved it's Oscar.

It really doesn't get any better than this!! One of the greatest movies ever made, any time, any where. A truly unforgettable experience.
Most Overrated film of all time
The Usual Suspects is one of those movies that you expect to be good because all your fiends say it's good. People are afraid to say how lousy this is, because their friends will get on them. But I will say it. #1, Stephen Baldwin is in it...so how good can it be? #2 Kevin Spacey is a criminal. He lies to the police and makes up a story to cover his own butt. The cops have busted him, and instead of confessing, he makes up a lie about the Kaiser. This movie is considered original? A criminal lies to the police?? THAT is so original? It happens every single day, people!!! I can't believe so many people like this movie. It's about a crook who lies to the cops...like there's something original or shocking about that. Think about it. Do you really like this movie because of Stephen Baldwin and a man telling a lie, or do you like it because you know you're supposed to like it...
People actually like this?!
I almost feel sorry for anybody who likes this pretentious crap.

Mostly everyone who does like it only likes it for one reason...the big twist at the end. But anybody with half a brain that is at least partially functioning can see through the transparent and poorly-written script and predict the ending by the half-hour mark.

Spoilers ahead. Do yourself a favor and read them rather than wasting your time watching this mess of a film.

OK, the basic plot...cripple is being questioned by a police officer at the police station. The cripple tells the cop about past events that supposedly happened. The stories the cripple tells all seem to contradict one another, and the cop is getting very annoyed since he can't seem to find out the real identity of the man behind the previous events...a man named Keyser Sose.

But who is Keyser Sose? I'll tell you who just by explaining what any intelligent movie viewer would have been thinking the entire time, and that is this. Keyser Sose can only be one person, and that person is Verbal Kint. And the reason why he has to be Keyser Sose is because he is the only person that is involved in the story from start to finish. Nobody else is in the office but Verbal and the cop, and we know the cop didn't do it (although that would have been an actual good twist), so it must be Verbal. Can't be any of the other "suspects" because, what if it was? Then the story would move somewhere else and Verbal would no longer be involved.

Which brings me to another major flaw...why the hell is Verbal even there in the first place? Him going to the police station serves no purpose at all.

And as I patiently waited for the extremely transparent conclusion to be revealed as exactly what I predicted the whole time, I thought of one thing...Verbal is a cripple, so he can't possibly be Keyser Sose. But that was nothing more than a cheap red-herring used only to intentionally throw the viewer off in a different direction. Didn't work very well at all.

Why else is this movie total crap? The directing is cheap and thoughtless, acting is decent at best but even that's stretching it, cinematography looks ugly as hell, and I didn't care about any character in the whole movie at all. Didn't give a hell if anybody lived or died. All that paired with the fact that the entire movie was built around the idea of a surprise ending with no substance of itself makes this a piece of garbage.

Wait, I'm sorry. Comparing this movie to garbage would be insulting to things I throw away.
Not flawless, but comprised of many individually terrific scenes, including THAT ending...
In the beginning of "The Usual Suspects," a man is killed on the deck of a ship, and suddenly an explosion completely tears apart the docked ship. Flash forward to the next day. Dave Kujan (Chazz Palimenteri) is forcing a statement out of the only surviver of the explosion, Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey, in the role that made him a star). Verbal recalls the last few weeks to Dave, who listens intently.

We start when five criminals are brought in for a line-up. There's McManus (Stephen Baldwin), Dean Keaton (Gabriel Byrne), Fred Fenster (Benicio Del Toro), Todd Hockney (Kevin Pollack), and Verbal Kint. While they are being held in prison, the five men all agree that the police just need someone to pin the crime they are suspected of on someone. They all agree to plan revenge by forming a league of crime...

Lotta stuff happens, next we know a legendary criminal named Keizer Soze (whose name reminds me of a type of food) has the five men under his control. He makes them steal drugs off a docked ship, and as we see in the beginning, the men all die save Verbal. Hmm, who could Keizer Soze be? How did all the people die? Who is Lara Croft? Oops, wrong tagline.

"The Usual Suspects" is a very good film, but not one of my favorites. It's extremely catchy, brutal, etc., but comes across slightly shallow. The ending, though surprising, doesn't really click together as well as some other films with surprises. I wasn't confused by the ending, I understood it, I just thought it was a bit shallow compared to some other flicks.


In the end we find out Kevin Spacey is Keizer Soze...I think...or is he Soze's henchman? Or is Soze just a legend? It's open to debate. But what makes it a bit more shallow from other films is that Verbal Kint is the one who tells this long story to Dave Kujan, and assumably he made most of it up because he was the criminal all along and had to cover himself up...so there's no real "wow!" element. If Verbal made up the story and turns out to be the man behind the killings, well, it's just a bit shallow as compared to some other films. We are expected to be amazed that he is Soze, but if the tale he told Kujan and us was for the most part a lie, then the fact that he was Soze all along isn't quite as amazing...umm...do you understand what I'm saying?

But I'm not saying I dislike this movie. In fact, that's far from it. I really enjoyed this flick. It's terrific. Great performances by the entire cast, especially Spacey, who won an Oscar for his role. Even Stephen Baldwin was good in this movie!

"The Usual Suspects" is a lot like "Basic," a film starring John Travolta. There are a lot of plot twists, but the duration of the film is a bunch of lies, and many of the "twists" don't make sense, and are there simply to confuse the audience into thinking something else. Behind all the gloss there isn't a whole lot there. But "The Usual Suspects" is still a great film, and though the end is slightly shallow, and the duration of the film is an excuse for the ending, it's still surprising and effective. And unlike "Basic" which dragged on for over two hours, "The Usual Suspects" knows when to stop its banter and get to the point.

Effective film-making, but slightly overrated and shallow.

4.5/5 stars -

I'd heard people say what a great movie "The Usual Suspects" was for a long time, but never got around to watching it...until tonight. I discovered it was available to watch instant stream on Netflix and decided to go ahead and give it a go. I've got to say, I'm pretty disappointed in it.

Once again, I feel I fell victim to hype. People hyped this movie up to be awesome, and I just don't think it was. In my opinion, the movie was OK at best.

The performances were all good. It's just that the movie was so slow...I couldn't believe that it's running time was a slim one hour and forty-five minutes. It felt like it was about two hours and twenty minutes to me.

Then, I just felt the "big reveal" at the end was a little hokey. I mean, if you're that great of a criminal mastermind you would've had your BS story made up long before you ever entered an interrogation room -- for Kevin Spacey's character to have supposedly come up with the details for his story based off what he'd seen on a bulletin board...I'm sorry, but I've got to cry foul! If you've already got the story made up, you're not going to need to find inspiration for names of characters off a bulletin board, but I realize if he hadn't have gotten the names off the bulletin board, the audience wouldn't have really known he was lying the whole time. I get that, but I think the ending requires too much suspension of disbelief.

I'm sure most people who like this movie like it because of its ending. Maybe if you take it for what it is, at a surface level, it might work...but once you start digging a little deeper and actually think about what you've just watched...it's not that great of an ending.

I'll give it some credit for trying to go a different way than most movies of its type do, but that's about all I can really give it credit for. The movie itself was just really slow and didn't really pay off in the end, in my opinion, anyway.

I'd give it maybe a five out of ten. That's about all the more I think it deserves. It wasn't GREAT, it wasn't HORRIBLE...it was just OK.

You can check it out if you want to, but I wouldn't go so far as to say I'd recommend it. Take that for what it's worth coming from an anonymous movie reviewer.
