the central twist which unifies all the film's elements is so ingenious and unusual that recognising the killer ends up being just one small part of this film's multi-faceted identity.

The cast is game, the twists are clever, the writing is tight.

An ingenious thriller molded from Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None". The film's incredibly entertaining even with the measurably predictable twist.

'Uno de los mejores thrillers realizados en los últimos diez años, por lo que sería un verdadero crimen perdérselo.'

One of the most engaging experiences you will have at the movies, it is a taut and intelligent hybrid of a thriller that has as many effective ideas as a mind has brain cells.

... Identity is a rarity: a good movie made better by a twist you won't see coming.

Mangold stretches the pathology parameters into something a bit more depraved and decidedly bloodier, with even a touch of the supernatural. Or does he?

Agatha Christie certamente ficaria orgulhosa deste seu 'filhote'.

Here is a movie that's so good - so juicy in the dark secrets it keeps - that all I really want to say is to see it right now knowing as little about it as possible.

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.

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.

Identity benefits from a delicious duper of an advertising campaign, taking much-warranted pleasure in the audience's gullibility

Amanda Peet throws some fine, even sublime, attitude: there's really nothing this girl doesn't do well, even the good-hearted hooker.
