Identity Reviews

Page 2 of 10

An enjoyably silly piece of pulp fiction, but the writer's main influence is undoubtedly Donald Kaufman, if you know what I mean.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

With its airtight structure, tension and impressive performances, Identity is not only the most intelligent thriller of the year so far, it's also the best.

. . .director James Mangold proves that not only can he deftly cross genres, but can also offer up a pleasing and well-crafted thriller.

A lame-brained nut job in search of an identity of its own.

The actors are good; the writing is clever and risky, but it's Mangold's excellent sense of just what to bring out and just when that makes this movie so effective.

This is more Steven King than it is Alfred Hitchcock and the comparison points out the difference between a master story teller and a supernatural schlockmeister who pulls unseen demons out of the air to artificially contrive the scenario.

There is nothing new to "Identity" but it works as a "10 Little Indians" clone.

Reeling Reviews

Cooney's script has some intriguing ideas (characters seem to be paired in ying/yang couples, such as the good cop/bad cop of Cusack and Liotta) and puzzles to ponder (that first victim wasn't really the first), but for all its suspense its revelation

Funny, scary and slick as the frost on a frozen corpse...

In the end, it all comes to mood. The story, the setting, the characters, the twists - none would work if it weren't for the feel of Identity.

The script, direction and acting are good enough that we aren't just waiting for the final payoff - we have plenty of fun getting there as well.

If being outsmarted by a serial killer flick will hurt your self-esteem, don?t go see it.

Works as a thrilling scare machine and an ambitious but structurally flawed gimmick.

It is well-made, has excellent actors, and the screenplay has a nice twist at the end.

Identity is phenomenal. Blending Film Noir, and Hitchcockian-like chills director James Mangold nailed it.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Identity becomes so grossly obsessed with its self-perceived cleverness, it lacks the sensibility to imbue [its] revelation with any tragic weight.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

In its heart of hearts, it's not a whole lot more than a slasher picture - a pretty savvy and hugely entertaining one, but a slasher picture nonetheless.

Psycho-thriller about 10 strangers at an isolated motel is spooky, smart and strange ... and packs a satisfying twist.

Perhaps the Director's Cut on DVD will shuck the entire final third and add a better resolution, but let's not hold our breath.

All the clues are there, and when you look back the entire picture comes together.
