    My absolute favorite review of this movie comes from my friend Eric who said "dude, I think I like it even more than training day"

    I watched this movie for the first time today. I have no idea how, but I've managed to keep away from any possible spoilers about this movie.

    The music from the opening sequence with the credits immediately sets the mood and draws you in. I really have nothing bad to say about this movie, yet it didn't take me long to figure it out. That kind of made me feel a little disappointed at the end, as opposed to a…

    It depends a little too much on its big "twist", but it's entertaining without it nevertheless.

    Only my second time watching it and, much like Fight Club and The Prestige, the second viewing was even more eye opening. Such an fucking astounding film

    Fine. It was... fine. I don't understand the accolades it received. It seemed to be nothing special.

    I see people mention how well acted this movie was, and while it may have been, who cares when the characters themselves are so forgettable?

    Spoilers below for the very end of the film.

    I like movies with a disjointed narrative, but this movie jumps around so often in such…

    The Usual Suspects is a solid, fun entertainment that is fairly ingeniously constructed. The film is about a crew of criminals working for and against the "devil" himself in Keyser Soze. While Kevin Spacey, the gimpy criminal, is fantastic, it is Chazz Palminteri almost steals the show as the cop trying to piece Spacey's story together. He never gets enough kudos when people throw huge compliments and awards at this film.

    It's most definitely worth seeing, if you haven't. My experience is that it is also a solid rewatch.

    How Do You Shoot the Devil in the Back?

    In many ways, fans of The Usual Suspects got it right - this is an immaculately well-made movie, with a dense, interesting story structure provided by screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, some well-etched (at least, on paper) characters, and a filmmaking style on par with, if not quite the most creative of, the best of those early-to-late '90s crime movies that just seemed to come out of nowhere, and were so, so beloved…
