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.

Hi,
The disc of this film is not working so can you please fix it so the next person won't get the broken one :)
Thank you

"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!

Definitely keeps you guessing till the end! Not many movies can pull you in for a surprise like this move does. It's not easy to keep up with all the loops you are sent on. Kyser Soze must have been a serious schemer!

A true classic film. Actors are at their best, with a great plot.
