The Usual Suspects (1995)

Rating: 100%

When it came to this movie, my brother absolutely forbid me to even look at the back of the DVD case because it basically spoils it for people which he wishes he knew before he got the film. To put it simply, he had a heck of a pretty good reason to do so.

Plot: On a ship where there seemed to have been a big gun fight, a mysterious figure only refereed only as "Keyser" talks to a wounded man named Keaton shortly before destroying the ship. The next day, the police talk to a con artist named Roger "Verbal" Kint who they make him tell his story from before and during the events of the night before.

This was a very clever movie. I mean you just have to love it. The acting is very well done, the story is creative, and you just have to love the last 20 minutes of it.

Gabriel Byrne/Dean Keaton: *WARNING THIS CONCERNS JUST PEOPLE WHO HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE*He did a very good job with his character. You have to like how he's portrayed at first throughout most of the movie.
Stephen Baldwin/Michael McManus: He did a very good job too.
Kevin Spacy/Roger 'Verbal' Kint: Now he did an excellent job. He totally deserved that Oscar for best supporting actor.

Music: The music was nice.

Editing: I thought it was very good. I especially loved the very end.

And that's my review for The Usual Suspects. If there's anything to take for those who haven't seen it, it's that if I were you guys, I would avoid any contact whatsoever over the back of the DVD case to this film as long as you haven't seen so much as...well...all of it.


  1. I have not seen this, but I pretty much know the twist, it's as common knowledge as the twist to Se7en or Fight Club. Great review though
