Byrne is a stand-up poet the way some actors are stand-up comics. His innate depth prompts The Usual Suspects to transcend its own cleverness--and this is the movie's smartest, least predictable surprise. show more

This movie has everything but Humphrey Bogart, and I'm sure he's sorry he was unavailable. show more
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 twice. Leave perfection to just the one movie..
This movie was a joke. The director had no business making X-Men.
