No redeeming qualities whatsoever
What a waste! Even if this is a "well-crafted" movie, none of the characters are likable, no one but the evil Satanic figure survives, and nothing good comes out of any of their lives. So maybe it's well made, well acted and well directed. So was the Third Reich! Usual Suspects was recommended to me (I should have more carefully considered the source) and my wife and daughter watched it with me. They both agreed there were no redeeming qualities in this film. It's dark, convoluted, and full of loopholes. The most outragious loophole is the fact that Kaiser Soze takes painstaking measures to eliminate the one person who can identify him, all the while appearing in public so much that by the end when he is revealed, everyone in the world will know what he looks like! DUH! I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys hearing the F word in nearly every conversation and who derives pleasure seeing scores of people murdered mindlessly. This is the movie for you!
At first, wasn't the biggest fan but.....
I couldn't help but set rather high expectations for 'The Usual Suspects' as I went into watching this. I knew this was no action movie or any of the crap we get nowadays. This was true cinema! I was excited 'The Usual Suspects' is a mystery film about what cargo was on board the ship when it was destroyed and the events leading up to it as we are told from the only known survivor of that accident.

Around 45-50 minutes into the movie, I was starting to find myself a bit tired and thought the movie may perhaps have dragged along just a bit. I was becoming rather disappointed. Then the film truly began to change in such a way that I find it rather hard to explain. The characters began to get a little more entertaining, the pacing certainly began to pick up, the dialogue was getting more interesting and overall, I was more excited.

Then comes the amazing final twenty minutes with the plot twist and the story finally closing in perfectly, making the story more understandable. However, the final 5 minutes of the movie are some of the best moments of movie ever made and that is the ultimate plot twist which surprised the hell out of me! It was a cheering end to what ended as a great movie and a movie I would be more than happy to check out again and again! A-
Great, but doesn't quite deserve the praise
While the movie takes time to get-going, it starts become more intense leading to the climax. But the main part of the movie that gained it its legendary status is the massive twist ending (which is impossible not to mention, so I'll try not to spoil), making you leave amazed by what you saw. But barring the ending, the rest of the movie doesn't quite deserve the praise that it gets, but that isn't to say that it is not an enjoyable movie.
(major spoilers - plus, if you're a fan of the film, you won't like my review)

I've never understood the fuss made over this movie - every time its been on TV i've watched the first five minutes, and rolled my eyes for various reasons (the first time it was Gabriel Byrne's accent, the other times it was how over-wrought everything was) and put something good on instead.

I've finally given it the light of day tonight, to the end, and my feeling is this: one minute of cleverness at the end does not justify putting us through two hours of over-wrought actors playing at cops and robbers.

The general situation is so very familiar - the crims who get together for one last job that goes wrong, and the way its told is not fresh either: the structure of the framing narrative in the present day and the flashbacks which take us back to a past event we want to learn the truth about, comes from Citizen Kane and Rashomon (ie, on its own does not make this movie original). The constant promise of a final mystery, which is intended to propel us to the end was invented by Orson Welles, and is a device used quite frequently (Citizen Kane, Rashomon, Go, Memento, The Exterminating Angel, and most movies, in fact).

For two hours this is a lot of posing, actors dressed in "slumming-it" costumes straight from the costume designer's wardrobe, cliche dialogue, unbelievable situations, one unsustainable haircut, stubble and a lot of brooding "i'm a criminal" close-ups.

There is a justified reason for all this falseness (aka pretentiousness), given in the final two minutes, which i can't even bring myself to say in case you haven't seen it and are still reading - i've had too many movies ruined for me. Save to say, like The Sixth Sense, this movie is a one-gimmick movie, and it takes watching it for two hours to find out that gimmick (which is the only possible explanation for characters having what i like to call Stephen King names, by which i mean they sound like someone has sat down and thought "What's a really cool name i can make up?" instead of names real people would have. Or possibly "what's the wackiest name i can give a person and have the audience not laugh" - if this was the case, they failed with me. Every time someone said "Verbal Kint," "Kobayashi," or "Kaiser Sosay" i couldn't help giggling) - i spent two hours rolling my eyes and two minutes saying "yes, that's clever, but if people didn't equate twists with quality then i could have enjoyed the entire two hours - but it would not have been this movie, which is nothing without its gimmick. I had the same problem with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - i need more than one gimmick to keep me interested.
I have no words for how good this movie is
No really, I have no words. I watched this for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I stayed glue until the last second...which by the way is crucial in this movie. Even writing this now I don't even know where to begin about how much I loved it. It was just such a good story with, as far as my standards go, the best plot twist I have seen so far in film. I don't think anyone could have played Verbal better than Kevin Spacey, he just dominates this film to the point that at the end I actually clapped for him...and I was watching this home alone at 2am. There was no performance left half-assed, everything just fell into place. Watch it...just please watch it.
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.
Kevin Spacey Nailed it!
My Personal Rating - 8.3/ 10 - One of the best film about crime out there, kevin spacey's Superb Acting, a good written film with good cinematography acting. just like goodfellas atmosphere. if you love that film, then what are you waiting for? watch this film right now. what great decent film.
Beautiful Bait
From the witty title to the execution of the plot, I am amazed and truly bewildered by this story's beautiful bait. After watching this, you will realize the value of thinking out-of-the box.

I love each character, they all gave justice to their roles as 'felons'; Each surprised me with their wits and their weaknesses, too.

If you want a beautiful bait, a forward-thinking suspense and thriller, count this movie in. The plot is brilliant so as the script, I had to re-watch it and see where did I miss. It is fast, it is witty and it will need a nanosecond speed-of-light mind to solve this puzzle. You will never get bored with this one I swear.
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'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 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.
