    Good film.

    Re-watching it makes me understand the plot, but it removes the dazzling first impression it made on me. Was a 9/10 film for me at first, now the narrative comes across as relatively uncompelling and disjointed, while the first time it came across as interesting building up to an intense culmination point.

    Utterly compelling. Spacey is masterful in one of the best written films Hollywood has ever seen.

    The twist is the only clever thing about this movie, the rest is rather boring.

    5 criminals come together for a police line up.

    Pretty good film, not a film that gets better after repeat views because of the twist.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Ambitious, intricate, engaging and for the most part, pretty successful.

    Singer's direction is atmospheric and keeps us on edge and McQuarrie's script is smart and slick and the famous plot twist totally works.

    But the reveal that almost the entirety of the film's story is total Bullcrap really does dampen any interest in me for a rewatch.

    And for a film trying so hard to establish a false story it doesn't try very hard to keep us up to speed…

    Still pretty entertaining, and the screenplay satisfies most every aspect it aims to, but it's not great. more noteworthy for its impact rather than its actual content.

    A true gem of a film which surprised me the entire way through, has an engaging cast, and is just a tour de force performance from Kevin Spacey. The writing, editing, story, and acting all collide to create a film where you catch something new upon every repeat viewing.

    I have to admit that I cannot for the life of me see why this film is so acclaimed. Sure, it's got a great cast, and it's well made, but as a whole, it seems like a standard run of the mill crime film. The whole Keyser Soze 'twist' isn't really that surprising either, or it's not as mind blowing as Singer expected it to be.

    I will admit that there is some fine acting on show, but really, the…
