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.
Admit It: You Never Saw That Coming!!
This is one of the most original cinematic stories ever told. "The Usual Suspects" won two Academy Awards, for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor, due to a fantastic cast and an awesome story with an even bigger plot twist.

The Plot: Dave Kujan (Chazz Palminteri), a Customs agent, brings Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey), a small-time con artist with a limp, into a local Californian police station for questioning in hopes of discovering the identity of the mysterious criminal Kaiser Söze. Kint tells the story of how he, three other criminals, and formerly corrupt police officer Dean Keaton (Gabriel Byrne) agreed to do a job for Söze who had vendettas against all of them. Kint explains that the job went wrong, and a man killed the others, including Keaton, before setting the ship they were all on board aflame. Kujan doesn't believe his story and instead forces him to admit that Keaton was really Kaiser Söze.

The Twist: "Who is Keyser Soze?" This is what everybody wants to know, as the viewer sees a crippled man named "Verbal" Kint (who was part of a major crime alongside his partners) to the detectives assigned to the case.

Crime lord Keyzer Soze is "Verbal" Kint, who has just told detective Kujan (Chazz Palminteri) a pack of lies he's made up. As he's being released from custody, he steps out to the street and reveals himself as non-crippled. One of the greatest cinematic stories ever told and the greatest ending twist in film history. In what is arguably the greatest cinematic twist of all time, Kujan realises that everything Verbal told him during the interview can be found in pictures, clippings, and items around the office, revealing that Kint lied about everything. As Kint walks to his car, long gone from the police station, he drops his limp.

The film ends with Kint reciting a quote by French poet Baudelaire: "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." —Before the screen goes black, he adds, "And like that… he's gone."

This is the kind of twist that makes repeat viewings so rewarding. Once you know what's up, you can start to differentiate between the lies and the truths.

Admit it: You never saw that coming!!
A Dynamic Script
From a directing perspective, The Usual Suspects is a flawless masterpiece with immaculate script writing and a rare show of top notch ensemble cast acting. Benecio Del Toro makes genius choices, Kevin Spacey was brilliant and I believe was handed the greatest of opportunities with such a will scripted role.

This movie really put Kevin Spacey on the map, but everyone in the ensemble cast is outstanding. Stephen Baldwin, Gabriel Byrne, Benicio, Spacey....the list of appearances goes on and on and only sets the bar higher far any movie with a comparable storyline and cast.

Christopher McQuarrie's inspirationally written script, is one of the finest of the the cinema era. The Oscar was well deserved for this piece of work, unlike many politically nominated and won Oscars. This was acknowledged because the work lived up to the praise.
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.
Masterful crime comedy
'The Usual Suspects' is carried by it's clever writing (by that I don't only mean it's twist ending) and star studded talented cast. It's one of those films (like 'Sixth Sense') that doesn't have the same impact in second viewing. Although very wittily written 'The Usual Suspects' still relies too much on it's final big reveal. When you take that away, you are only left with entertaining cat and mouse heist film with amazing performances. Shallow, but fun. Although Kevin Spacey was the only one nominated (and he also won) for Academy Award, the rest of the cast were equally strong. No one shined out - I guess that shows Bryan Singer's talent directing a movie with such cast.

Again, once the big twist is known, the film loses too much of it's impact, but it is still so well written and acted that it leaves most such crime films far behind.
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.
Why The Usual Suspects is the best movie of all time
The best movies of all time are often the types of movies that you can watch over and over again and find something you never noticed the first time you watched it. The Usual Suspects, directed by Bryan Singer, is everything that a thriller mystery movie should have. The story follows a criminal played by Kevin Spacey who recalls the story of his partners in crime and how they all ended up getting killed by a man named Kaiser Soze, a supposed myth in the criminal world. The story, as it unfolds, is full of mystery about who the true identity of this Kaiser Soze character is, making the audience believe that Dean Keaton, portrayed by Gabriel Byrne, is only man that could be Kaiser Soze.

What makes this movie stand out above the others and makes one want to watch it multiple times is the twist. The major twist at the end shocks not only the audience, but also the characters in the movie, making the reaction that much better. What makes the twist in this movie so effective and shocking is the fact that the audience finds out the truth at the same time as the characters. Seeing the characters and how they react to the twist gives the audience a certain way to feel and how they should also react to the mind boggling realization. Not only does the way that the story is told, first person and through flashbacks, make the movie great, but the artistic climax at the very end makes it a movie you would watch over and over again. Since the movie is able to draw the audience in by having two climaxes at the end of the film, of which also happen to be the two twists, the audience is left even more in shock and awe the second time compared to the first. The first climax occurs with only ten minutes left in the movie, as the officer doing the interrogating draws the conclusion from Verbal Kint's, played by Kevin Spacey, story that Dean Keaton is the alleged Keyser Soze. Five minutes later, the second climax occurs after Kint leaves the police station, as the officer realizes with shock and disbelief that Kint is actually Keyser Soze. The way the the officer realizes the truth as well is so methodically thought out. After Kint leaves, the officer sits on his desk, drinking coffee and just looking at all the police stories posted on the wall behind his desk. Wide eyed, the officer realizes that some of the stories Kint told were just stories from the wall. It is this single moment that makes the viewer want to watch the movie multiple times as you're never completely sure what parts of Kint's story is real and what parts are simply made up.

Along with the twists, and the story telling, the acting done by Kenvin Spacey is that of legends and fine tuned actors. The writing of the script and how Spacey was able to portray the emotions of his character, a "crippled man," makes you feel a special connection to him, but the big twist is able to take that well crafted connection and completely topple it over. The artistic way that the camera follows Kint in the last closing scenes also makes this movie mind blowing and jaw dropping. One of the last shots is of Kint's crippled feet, limping away from the police station. However, with the audience now knowing that Kint is Keyser Soze, when they witness Kint's limp evolve into a regular stride, showing that Kint faked even his disability, everything becomes clear.

Besides just being entertaining, the movie can also contain a deeper, darker meaning in that shows the audience that not every story told will be a hundred percent true and can often times be perverted for the benefits of a story teller. Due to the great story, the effectiveness of the twists, and the acting, the Usual Suspects is one of many movies that belong in everyone's top movies list.
Good film
The Usual Suspects follows the interrogation of Roger "Verbal" Kint. Verbal is one of two survivors of a drug deal gone wrong at the Port of Los Angeles. He tells the interrogator, Kujan, a drawn-out story about events that led him and the four other "usual suspects" to the port the night the drug deal went wrong, leading to a fire and several casualties. At the beginning the five suspects are brought into questioning over a truck hijacking. The suspects are Michael McManus played by Stephen Baldwin, Dean Keaton played by Gabriel Byrne, Fred Fenster played by Benicio Del Toro, Todd Hockney played by Kevin Pollak, and Roger "Verbal" Kint played by Kevin Spacey.

The theme of The Usual Suspects is that pride and arrogance lead to manipulation and betrayal. At the beginning of the film, none of the suspects will admit to anything that happened with the hijacking. We immediately see that these five men are arrogant but at the same time loyal, not throwing any of the other men under the bus so to speak. During the movie Kint manipulates the other "usual suspects" by playing puppet master without them even knowing it.

This theme keeps true throughout the film as Verbal is being interrogated by Kujan. As the story becomes more complex we see Verbal becoming more arrogant and manipulative of Kujan. The character of Verbal becomes more and more interesting as the movie goes on. Kevin Spacey was the perfect actor to play the role of Verbal as Spacey does well in providing mystery.

In respect to theme, this movie is similar to The Interview. The 1998 movie The Interview is also revolved around a man's drawn-out interrogation for crimes he may or may not have committed.

One technique used in The Usual Suspects is the motif of an unreliable narrator. Verbal often skirts around the questions being asked during his interrogation. Another technique used is flashbacks. As Verbal is being interrogated throughout this film Verbal narrates through the flashbacks exactly what happened the night of the boat explosion. The fact that Verbal was an unreliable narrator, thus the flashback scenes being unreliable as well, ties back to the theme of pride and arrogance leading to betrayal and manipulation.

The pride and arrogance all of the "usual suspects" portrayed throughout this film shows how easy it is to manipulate and betray people. This film was one a lot of people can relate to in general because we have all been manipulated/ have manipulated others at some point in our lives.
The movie lies
I wanted to like this movie but...


The movie lies to you. In %99.99 percent of all movies, what you see on the screen is supposed to be what happened to the characters. The only difference are things like point of view or missing details, for example you might know what happened from 3:00 to 4:00 and from 5:00 to 6:00 but not from 4:00 to 5:00. Or you might know that Mr. A was there killing Mr.B but it's not until later you find that Mr.C was also there.

In this movie though, several of the scenes are deliberate lies. That breaks one of the cardinal rules of movie making. Not that there are any rules but if the camera lies then there's basically no point in watching.

It would have been a good movie for me, even with the twist, if all the scenes had been about reality and the twist brought all your missing knowledge together. Instead, the twist just invalidated everything before it. You end up not knowing if any scene in the entire movie has anything to do with reality whatsoever.

Given that I honestly don't understand why people like this movie. Try Memento, it doesn't lie. Try Fight Club, Try 6th Sense. All much better movies because they are not full of camera lies.

Usual Suckspects
A crime thriller that isn't about redemption or revenge or much anything at all, "Suspects" isn't a movie as much as a display of a director's obsessive lust for the criminal underworld. Director Bryan Singer likes rain soaked gutters, burning cigarettes, crooked cops, clever retorts, smoky pool halls and menacing tough guys. Characters don't populate this movie. Attitude does. The movie isn't interested in where these guys came from, what motivates them, what their struggles are. Without struggle, there's no tension; without tension, there's no suspense; and a crime thriller without suspense exists only to covet the unpleasant, the nasty.

With a quick pace, flamboyant cinematography, and lines like, "brought in on trumped up charges to be leaned on by half-wits", the movie insists that it's crafty and clever, but fails with characters who can't come alive beyond brief sketches. Hockney is a surly slob; Fenster dresses in sharp suits and mumbles; McManus is wild and temperamental; Keaton is grumpy; Kint is soft-spoken and club-footed. As dialogue exists here only to move characters from one place to the next, it could really be assigned to anyone. Similar lines like "I'll f--k your father in the shower", "I did it to your mother's a-s", and "At least I don't have a captain with his d--k in my a-s all day long", uttered by three separate characters, generate the impression that a single trash talking lowlife is inhabiting five people.

The events of the plot have no significance either. The team robs a group of crooked cops in New York, then travels to Los Angeles to pull off another job for a guy called Redfoot, and are finally enlisted by Soze's assistant Kobayashi to steal cocaine. Kint's account of the first two jobs takes about an hour of film time. It'd be of no consequence if it were left out. The heists are redundant and advance the characters in no way at all: Keaton is still grumpy, Hockney is still surly, they all still call each other "cocksucker." The first hour exists only for the stimulation of watching thugs wave guns and beat people up. The film's sense of aprogress, of stalled, redundant cycles, inhabits the interrogation between Kujan and Kint. The characters never progress beyond a pattern of friendliness, petulance, aggression, a big blow-up, threats, ceasefire and then all over again.

Verbal's account is presented as objective. He has no reason to lie, so we wouldn't expect him to. However, the film lets us know a minute before it's over that everything we have seen is made up. Apparently, Verbal, using things in the interrogation room for material, mostly the bulletin board behind Kujan, tricked the cop and the film's audience. A post-it note about a guy named Redfoot becomes the character Redfoot, a mug by "Kobayashi" becomes Soze's assistant Kobayashi, and so on. Realizing that a supposedly objective narrator has misled us, we re-evaluate everything that has come before. What really happened? How does the lie illuminate the rest of the story? Singer supplies no answers. Kint walks out of Kujan's office, ending the film.

One could say that the filmmakers have done this deliberately, that the absence of character, distinct truth, and connection between events is deliberate. That Singer is a nihilist and this is his view of the world. A viable worldview, fine, but his film can't escape being an antagonistic prank on its audience. Singer uses familiar storytelling tools and setups to snare us and as the story develops, he entices our imaginations with more and more clues to figure out the puzzle. We're intrigued because he's telling us there's an answer, that all this is going somewhere, that every scene and every line is a piece to the puzzle. He dares us to pay attention so maybe we can figure it out before the film does. Riddles do the same thing. For instance, the answer to the riddle, "I'm trying to go home but I can't because the man in the mask; who is the man in the mask?," is "the Catcher." When we find that out, we take pleasure in knowing that the answer was there, all we had to do was think and see the obvious from a different perspective.

"Suspects" disappoints because the answer was never there for us to see. Customs agent Kujan only notices the material on the bulletin board when he leans up close to it. Whenever the camera lingers with Kint, nothing on the board can be seen distinctly. More important, the film never cues us that Kint might be making it all up. His total immunity from prosecution gives him no reason to waste Kujan's and our time for the entire length of a movie. What Singer ends up doing is cannibalizing the very genre of storytelling he admires. He mocks the thrill of expectation used to tantalize us, only to say that there is no puzzle. Singer's answer to the riddle about the Catcher is the illogic of "there is no man." Much like Verbal Kint's lies, Singer's charade can only be taken as the snub that it is.
