A terrific cast of exciting actors socks over this absorbingly complicated yarn that's been spun in seductively slick fashion by director Bryan Singer.

Emanuel Levy

Stylishly made but narratively hollow and dramatically derivative, Bryan Singer's neo-noir puzzle owes its existence to Tarantino.

To many young film buffs, this is where film history begins and ends.

McQuarrie's script is a scurrying lizard of a yarn, scaly, swift and difficult to follow.

Singer creates a classy, thought-provoking mystery that is pleasingly old-fashioned and absolutely modern in the sly, slightly self-conscious play it makes with myth and methods of storytelling.

If ever a movie got extra points for a strong, unexpected conclusion it's The Usual Suspects.

No one is out of place or out of line here, and that is what makes the final payoff so sweet.

One of the most ingenious, unpredictable films in recent memory... and one of the biggest cheats.

Palo Alto Weekly

It's a real dazzler -- a neo-noir hybrid of a heist and a mystery film that sucks you into a dark world where nothing is what it seems.

This movie finally isn't anything more than an intricate feat of gamesmanship, but it's still quite something to see.

Fantastic ensemble crime thriller with the mystique of an underworld urban legend. A Breakout project for both Benecio Del Toro and Director Bryan Singer.

Too predictable. Still enthralling enough to watch (at least twice).

The Usual Suspects loses some of its impact with subsequent viewings, but it remains a superior picture with much to enjoy beyond its unforgettable ending.

In many ways, the viewers are the mark in this audacious con game... and its brilliance is all the more impressive for it.
