A film that rewards on repeat viewings, this has great performances from everyone, in particular Byrne and Spacey, and a script that is brilliantly constructed. It may well be more remembered for its final resolution which works well no matter how many times the film is dissected, but the dynamics between the "suspects" are fun to watch, with each of them bringing a distinct persona to the film that is memorable. John Ottman's score is also wonderfully atmospheric. A modern classic
Watched it after having it for a few years but never taking the time. A slow and cryptic 90's action mystery with little to care about until the twist-ending reveals itself. But by that time, it's already over. Eh, too bad.
THE USUAL SUSPECTS has a skilled director, an engrossing screenplay, and ten praiseworthy performances. The film runs a fast 105 minutes. Don't miss a minute of it.
Great film , good plot twist , love the acting coming from Kevin Spacey and how all the "usual suspects" all have distinct personalities.
Intriguing crime and action flick with an absolutely surprising plot twist. I won't tell you more, watch it for yourself!
