I am usually capable of understanding why movies are considered beloved classics even when I personally don't enjoy them but this one baffles me. Absolutely everything about it is ordinary, unremarkable, plain. It feels so forgettable it felt like I was forgetting it while I watched it. Sure, it has that famous "big twist" finale but who even cares by the time you get there? Giving this one a C.
i watched this with my dad when i was like 10 or something for the first time. its one of his faves and not one of mine. tbh its confusing even now and im 16. i love kevin spacey tho. go awf. anyway, i think the movie tries to be like plot-holey but its way too fast paced??? idek what the fuck the characters were saying. but i liked kevin spacey so 3 for just him.
Not terrible, but vastly overrated as an imaginative and brainy whodunit. The Usual Suspects features an all-star cast and Bryan Singer should be commended for cooking up a crime flick that does not rely on a barrage of bullets and cliche characters; I just found the end revelation unrewarding and obvious.
