So in all likelihood, not your usual movie, but some familiar faces. Bryan Singer delivers with a movie derived from a column in Spy magazine title the aforementioned movie title. The usual suspects is comprised of prominent faces such as Gabriel Byrne, Benicio del Toro (wolfman), Kevin Pollak, Stephen Baldwin, and the unusual Kevin Spacey. The movie centers around this dillemma of either going straight or keeping your track record going. Low and behold, their is always someone more notorious than the next criminal, spoiler: "Keyser ...... Soze." Kevin Spacey as Verbal Kint is superb in this movie, one of his best roles if not his best. The overall movie itself was well executed, great script, great story, great locations (LA n New York) intriguing premise. This movie was essentially great. I suggest you find it on dvd (rare) or at least a week rental, its worth it. A true rated R movie except nudity, no kids allowed. enjoy.

Films cab transport our minds and make our brains work extremely hard by using build-up and mystery. In order to appreciate this from of cinema, you have to pay attention! That's not hard to do while viewing "The Usual Suspects" due to it's brilliant directing by Brian Singer and its unique, leading, mysterious, and shocking screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie that doesn't just make you think and intrigue you for every second of the film, but makes you analyze the crime scene as if you were investigating the films plot yourself. "The Usual Suspects" revolves around a brutal fire on a large ship leaving only two alive. One named verbal (Kevin Spacey) explains the incident to the FBI explaining how Turkish criminal Kyzer Soze was responsible for the murders of the men on board, and tries to help them find this killer. Using suspects to fit Soze's appearance, four men are investigated. The criminals get involved in a heist that set up a wild conclusion that will leave you speechless. Every criminal, Stephen Baldwin, Gabriel Byrne, Benicio Del Toro, Kevin Pollak, and Kevin Spacey are electrifying and play their parts perfectly. What's so smart about McQuarrie's story is that he's building up a story that could go any direction at any time. he isn't set around one character and one story that continues to move on. Instead he uses five men who could all get into trouble and shift the story like a hurricane. We are filled with mystery and suspense and get a shocking ending that concludes everything that happened and explains all its mysteries, but doesn't leave a stitch unclear. Director Bryan Singer gives elusive shots that always have that pressure and tension built on them even when nothing too important is occurring. It's always unpredictable and its like watching a frog; you can watch a little toad sit all day, but you'll never know when it'll jump.
