Considered an extremely smart film thanks to the climactic twist ending about the cripple Verbal's true identity and the way he fabricated the story with visual stimuli cluttered in the detective's office where he was being interrogated/questioned. But, was it really, truly, all that smart? At least if they had given viewers hints throughout, like The 6th Sense did, then maybe it'd be as great as some feel it to be. But, it's a bit overrated. I mean, honestly, who really remembers anything but the ending of this movie? The buildup is mediocre. You got some neat characters, but it's not worthy of its cult status. A good enough movie with some good acting and an okay story. Seeing it once is enough, just make sure you revisit it again if the last time you saw it you were 16 years old, you may see it's not what it seemed to be back in the 90's. Maybe because the twist ending movies were still in their infancy at the time.
