    I feel like imagining the Reuben who said this was his favorite movie from like 15-20 is almost impossible to do. It's an interminable one liner parade with all of my least favorite styles of acting. I also thought the line about stepping back and everything making sense was early in the movie, to plant a seed, but it's actually right before the big reveal. That's just poor writing. Same with some of the side stories that Verbal tells, they're…

    This has to be one of my favourite films of all time. No CGI, no stand out cast or major money shot......all this consists of is a great script, great story & fantastic acting. It's simple, effective and a that's all I need to say.....

    Film # 12 of the "Scavenger Hunt #2" Challenge
    Task # 29: The film with the most surprising twist end
    letterboxd.com/joyceheinen/list/scavenger-hunt-2/
    ___________________________________________________________________
    There is one scene in “The Usual Suspects” that was considered failed by director Brian Singer. The actors couldn’t concentrate and constantly laughed. Eventually Singer decided to use the footage, the scene could be more interesting because of it. And he was right: one of the most characteristic scenes from the movie was born.

    Off course we’re talking…

    Task #29 - The film with the most surprising twist ever!
    ___________________________________________________________

    Here's the thing with The Usual Suspects, it's an amazingly crafted movie that has a really suspenseful script and some amazing acting. But due to the fact that this film is years old and it's quite well recognised, the ending gets blurted out by anyone who mentions it. And let me tell you, if you know the ending…

    I've had the ending of this movie ruined for me countless times, thanks to the rabid, loose-lipped fans of this movie. In junior high, friends blurted out the ending during their newly-found love of the movie. High school - same thing. Film school - ENDLESSLY wrecked, so much so that I just decided to give up and never watch the film because of my annoyance over this kind of open conversation about the love of a twist ending, while robbing…

    An ok film with a great plot twist.

    I love plot twists, any film that can keep me in the dark about what is really going on until the very end is interesting to me. it always leads to a gripping scene near the end where all is revealed and it is always exciting to watch.

    The rest of this film was ok, some characters were quite interesting while I found other characters to be quite dull. The story was nothing special.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Took a while for the film to get into its groove. But man, that twist.
    Kevin Spacey was incredible.

    I'll borrow the words of my father, "classic bait-and-switch". This film, so brilliantly directed by Brian Singer, presents itself as the story of the happenstance of poor cripple, Verbal Kent. As the film goes on, the editing and dialogue help present the thickness of character and the world the characters live in. And by the time it all comes to that all to famous ending, the gears click into place and you realized, Kajun wasn't the only one who was fooled. This film is much deserving of it's praise.

    Film #5 in Project 90s

    This film is #23 on the IMDB 250. Now I'm not saying that I implicitly trust IMDB's rankings-quite the opposite, however, there's been several times I've watched a movie high on the list but seldom discussed in film circles, and been very pleasantly surprised. I hoped this would be one of those times, but unfortunately not. Everyone knows this has a twist ending, maybe I was the only one who didn't know what it was,…

    All I can say about this movie is well done to the director Bryan Singer, he pulled off the best movie plot twist in my opinion of all-time, but you'll just have to watch the movie to believe me. It was exiting all the way through the movie and I can't believe I haven't seen sooner, with it's action packed scenes this movie one you have to see.
