Beautifully crafted, with an ending that left me feeling like I'd been clonked on the head. Me, actually yelling at the screen. 20 years later, it's still a mind-blowing classic.

I haven’t seen this movie since it came out and it still stands up well. Great cast, excellent writing and good action\homour. Well worth the watch.

Enjoy The mini stories and pay attention to the beginning sequence. Also, make notes of how each character presents himself. I called "Keyser Soze" from the beginning. :3
And now *poof* he's gone.

An entertaining movie with the suspect taking the police for a ride until the very end when the police officer figures out what has actually happened. The twists are very good and keep one guessing throughout the film.

Great ensemble of actors. A solid, well written storyline with a grand twist in the end. This is one movie that will have you watching repeatedly. Highly recommend.

wonderful suspense with an underlying dry wit ... absolutely incredible ensemble performances

"Last of Sheila", "Usual Suspects", and "Identify" are the best three 'who done its' there are. "Identify" adds "Who did what" until the end.

A superlative movie which should be mandatory viewing before ever discussing politics, crime, or the finance industry in America! Brilliantly written, brilliantly acted!
