Great movie !!!! Not a cookie-cutter flick for crime movie buffs . The plot is too twisting to go throught here, but it is great. Spacey NAILED the role of Verbal / Kesyer, his performance WAS the movie. The rest of the talented cast fits like a glove to add the extra layers in this movie. The right actors were cast for the roles, I'd look forward to a sequel but no way ligthening could strike

This movie was a joke. The director had no business making X-Men.

This thriller is like a game of life-and-death chess, with quick double-crosses and wild gambits. Full Review

Nothing more than an over-designed lobster pot. After following the beckoning twists and turns, you're left trapped and more than a little disappointed for getting in so deep. Full Review

Goes straight to cult status without quite touching one important base: the audience's emotions. This movie finally isn't anything move than an intricate feat of gamesmanship, but it's still quite something to see. [16 August 1995, p. C15] Full Review

The Usual Suspects is an accomplished synthesis of noir elements and, as such, is an entertaining entry to the genre. Full Review
