A Perfectly Crafted Mystery - (very ambiguous spoiler)
Kaiser Soze is a super-criminal of almost comic-book stature. Legendary among an underground of testosterone and nicotine-driven low-life 'usual suspects' of this film - Soze - remains unseen, fantastic, just outside of the camera's view, and detached from any reality we might call familiar or real. Nevertheless, he is the central character in the film, and the single force of will driving the entire film. The viewer, like the characters portrayed, must constantly ask 'Who is Kaiser Soze, does he even exist?", and - as silly as it might seem - "is he the devil himself?".

Soze's irresistible will is represented and enforced by an emissary (the stone-faced Pete Postlethwaite) who is just as cold-hearted as any of the hardened criminals who comprise 'The Usual Suspects'.

The narrative begins and almost ends as a retrospective with just a bit of very necessary voice-over narrative by Spacey. His character - Verbal Kint - is interrogated by Palmintieri concerning the murder of several hardened criminals in a single night aboard Russian ship. Most of the major plot points are highlighted wonderfully by the changes of pace and camera work afforded by the shift between one plot - the events leading to Kint's interrogation - and another - the interrogation itself.

Kint, physically disabled and emotionally disturbed, is himself a desperate, down-on-his luck, petty criminal whose chief talent seems to be getting mixed up with and attaching himself to more talented criminals. His latest 'friend' - Keating (Byrne) is a brilliant but depressive thief who is trying to straighten his life out for a woman lawyer he has fallen for. But along with the other 'usual suspects' - expert safe crackers, con men and sociopaths (possibly the best performance of Stephen Baldwin's career thus far) all - Keating is swept up into agreeing to do 'one final job'. In a fine piece of character interpetation, Byrne plays denial to the hilt telling himself that this job, if successful, could end his life in crime permanently.

These expert thieves, con men and killers meet in a bogus police line-up one night and from that point on, they are bound together under the control of Soze until they either succeed or fail in the crime he has laid before them.

Soze has been betrayed, whether directly or indirectly, by each of these men, and he leaves them all no choice. Accept the crime plan or die. They accept, knowing that their odds of success are, to say the least, very limited.

The entire feeling of this film shifts radically from the action of the main plot (described in Kint's narrative) and the narrative itself (Kint's interrogation). While this may look simply like a clever piece of film work, it is actually a very brilliant plot device, as both story lines are finally united in the stunning and brilliant finish.

While I am not usually a ready fan of mysteries, and even less interested in thrillers, this film was pure entertainment from start to finish.

Director Singer has established himself as a pioneer in ensemble cast direction, and this film alone (his third) should have awarded him that title.

The performances are, without exception, flawless. While flawlessness or some approximation of it is something I generally expect from people like Spacey, Byrne, and Del Toro, many of the folks in this film very much surprised me. I now watch out for folks like Kevin Pollak, for example. Without detracting from the performers whatsoever, some credit for the stunning quality of the performances must go to the director, editor, script and cinematography team. This film makes them all look positively great.

I was bitterly disappointed by the fact that this film did not take many Academy Awards in its release year. While I realize that the academy's choices do not always reflect quality or achievement, I prefer to maintain at least a superficial guise of hopefulness. The fact that Usual Suspects did not win for editing was the biggest shock. I can not think of a better piece of editing.

Not enough good things to say
Such films like this should be enshrined in museums, simply due to the fact it destroyed the entire genre of mystery films. While this film was unique and captivating, no other mystery will ever accomplish this sort of cult status, single handedly shaping a genre. While most mysteries try to shock you too often with twists and even more twists, it turns out to be overkill. This film encompassed such ideas with flair and originality, which is probably the reason Brian Singer is sticking to sci-fi action films. Only Memento and The Game are the only recent mystery movies worthy enough to stand beside this film. Sadly, Singer has somewhat sold out by doing the X-Men movies, but I guess trying to make films like this would be too taxing. This film will always bring a smile to my face when I watch it with someone who hasn't seen this movie. A good viewing every time I watch it, the new special edition DVD is awesome.

Surprising ending with little behind it
Just about everyone agrees that the surprise ending to "The Usual Suspects" is very satisfying, as is Kevin Spacey's performance as the pathetic yet strangely-likeable Verbal Kint. Unfortunately, I found that there is little else to be enjoyed.

All in all, the cast's performances were not all that superb. Spacey is an exception, but that's nothing new. The story itself is well written, but not very interesting. It's conceivable that the cast would be seen as fulfilling the characters well precisely because the characters themselves are so vague. The screenwriter makes sure to lay the idiosyncrasies on thick without allowing us to know the characters and better understand their quirks. Naturally, there's only a given amount of depth that can be accomplished in an hour and a half, but "The Usual Suspects" still barely reaches that.

So while I would recommend this film for Spacey and the ending, I don't think its worth waiting around for 80+ minutes of ho-hum "gritty crime drama" to get to all the scenes where he really shines and where the script isn't so dull.

Pretentious
A fine example of a movie trying really hard to be a Rubik's Cube. When a movie starts tripping over itself just for the sake of complicating the plot--that's when I throw up my hands and say, "Enough already!" It stops being entertaining and enjoyable and begins to be nothing but a chore. I tried to like this movie, but after being introduced to about 300 characters who all look and act alike (their names even rhyme, for God's sake!), and when the plot demands that we memorize all sorts of details about each one of them to follow the story, that when it stops being fun. I felt like I was working overtime just to keep up with this mess.

When the ending is finally sprung, and I thought about it in the context of the rest of the movie, it should have all made sense, justifying the over-complicated story, but it didn't. Holes opened up large enough for houses to fall through. It seemed as if the writer just threw in the most unlikely possibility to astonish the audience. After the maze he leads us through, it's easy to forget why this doesn't make sense. It's a real cheap shot.

Great movie, here is a critique of the criticisms
I really cannot believe that this movie has its fair share of bad reviews and people who do not know what actually happened and what parts were true and what parts were lies.

The truth, Verbal did recruit the others for the hit on the boat, he did manipulate, trap, and deceive them into thinking they were going to hit a big drug deal. What he lied about was the names of people and motives. During his interrogation he tried to tell as little as possible and make himself out to be just a pawn in the game. But Dave Kuyan was figuring things out, and as such Verbal would have to reveal more or feign ignorance. Eg, Verbal said it was about drugs, Kuyan figured out it was to hit an informant. So all the actions from the lineup to the boat were real, and the fact that the lawyer picks Verbal/Souze up at the end shows this.

As for the twist, its a good twist, and not one that just comes out of the Blue. There are many hints throughout the movie that Verbal is more than he seems, but these are only apparent second time round. Hints include, The way Verbal shot the guy in the car despite supposedly being disabled and not being able to flick a lighter properly. The absolute first scene that shows Keaton about to die, that shows that Keaton knew who was about to kill him, the sigh and the way he says Kaizer implies he realised he got played, should of know better, and now he knows who that person really is. Other hints, Verbal emotion when he told the story he believed about Kaizer. and also when they were watching the boat he knew specifically that they were speaking Hungarian.

So all in all this is a good film, the genius being that everything makes sense and there are hints throughout about Verbal.

Entertaining to the very last line...
This film has got to be one of the greatest in recent history. The ending superb, the acting of the highest caliber, this film shines as the most memorable, clever, and re-watchable of this decade. I personally have seen The Usual Suspects over fifty times, and each time I learn something new. Last year I watched the movie every day for a month, twice a day on weekends. It doesn't matter that I know what happens to each character, it doesn't matter that the end is already placed in the back of my mind, just waiting to explode onto the screen before my eyes in a visual and psychological masterpiece.

When I call the film memorable, I would cite the acting of Kevin Spacey as a prime example. His performance almost makes the end forgetable (even after I've spent so long spouting how memorable the film is. Bare with me, it all makes sense when you take a step back). As I watch from start to finish, I get so wrapped up in the story, and in searching for minor details that I definitely missed the first fifty times (the first six or seven times you are too busy grinning at the obvious facial gestures and body language that you missed the first time around that almost guide you to the logical, yet completely loopey climax), that it never gets boring to me. I will probably continue to watch this incredible movie for the rest of my life.

The supporting cast each lends a little to the overall high quality of this film, in their own way. Postlethwaite is a tall, dark, mysterious enigma; Baldwin is a loud, comedic psychopath; Del Toro adds a quirky accent and sex appeal; Pollack comes through with spunk and charm; Palminteri shines as the arm of the law with pizazz; Byrne is the wistful dreamer, searching for the straight life, caught in a snare between the law that holds him down and the unrelenting crime world that calls him deeper into the criminal fold; and Spacey, well my dear Kevin Spacey is the highlight of the film, innocent and true to his feelings, observant, worthy of sympathy, and admiration towards the end, and the Oscar is well deserved for this stellar performance.

The movie is action packed and well rounded, leaving the viewing audience stunned, baffled, bewildered, and ready to watch again. After the last line is uttered I feel like I did the first time I watched the film, completely in awe for the master deception. I recommend this movie to everyone I know (and don't know for that matter), for it is truly what a movie should be: entertaining and thought provoking. It is my favorite movie of all time (slyly beating out Gone with the Wind).

Cheap ploy for a plot twist -- ruins movie for me.
The movie was simplistic and I'd already determined who I thought was the real bad guy. However the director and writers thought it would be okay to manipulate the story by basically lying to us. The fact is, without the theatric lies, the story is VERY predictable. And you will most likely have guessed the perpetrator the same as I did, but be left questioning your reasoning until the end when you realize that your reasoning was sound but that they showed us false scenes that weren't possibly real.

It's like a kids ploy. He shows you a picture of a tree and says, "Look, it's a tree." Then he comes back an hour later and shows you a picture of a truck and claims it was the same picture as the tree.

The plot holes in the movie stem from the ending itself. Without giving away the story line, we are told one thing and shown it as a flashback to be real. But then the rug is pulled out from under us only to discover that the flashbacks weren't real at all.

To me that sucks and ruins the movie. There's a trust that is established between an audience and the stage, and I feel this movie betrays that trust. How it got so high a rating while insulting the audience astounds and bewilders me.

I cry foul and refuse to give more than a 5 rating for it's overall movie appeal.

Great movie; would recommend
Directed by Bryan Singer

Starring: Kevin Spacey, Gabrielle Bryne and Benicio Del Toro

Overall: This is truly an astonishing movie and I definitely recommend to watch it, but don't read or watch anything relating to the movie prior to watching.

Good:

1. Kevin Spacey is absolutely amazing as Verbal and I don't think he can disappoint me as an actor.

2. Gabriel Bryne is awesome as Keaton.

3. All the other actors did good, it was mainly those two that stood out for me.

4. An excellent and well written story.

5. I have very mixed feeling for the ending. It is great and amazing and possibly one of the greatest ever... but I guessed it 20 minutes in. Don't get me wrong, it's excellently done and crafted and, if you think about it, is utterly, utterly genius but I guessed it and I feel like that hurt my viewing experience.

6. Good cinematography.

Bad:

1. Other than Spacey and Bryne's characters, no one really stood out for me to the point were I can just barely recall some of their names.

2. It's sad I have to list the ending as a negative but If I can guess it, on my first viewing... 20 minutes in. It's good but I finished the film slightly disappointed.

9/10

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...
