Mastermind behind a $91 million dollar drug heist with no drugs, no money and 29 dead bodies floating in the harbor. Who is Keyser Soze? "If you can figure out before the final reel, there's a top job waiting for you at the C.I.A." says Gene Shalit on Today.

"...deliciously intricate...  Hal Hinson, The Washington Post
"The best and most stylish crime movie of the 90s.  NewsWeek
"...thoroughly engrossing...  Jim Byerley, HBO Online
"...mystery, personality, humor and terror, laced with one stunning shock after another.  Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

Editor's Note
Director Bryan Singer's labyrinthine crime drama centers on five career criminals (played by Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Spacey, Benicio Del Toro, Kevin Pollak, and Stephen Baldwin) who meet after being rounded up for a standard police line-up. Upon their release, the men band together to pull off an intricate heist involving $3 million worth of emeralds. Their success brings them to the attention of the enigmatic Keyser Soze, an unseen, nefarious, and mythic underworld crime figure who coerces them into pulling off an important and highly dangerous job. The scenes that follow make THE USUAL SUSPECTS one of the most fascinating crime thrillers in cinema history.

Working from the Oscar-winning screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie, Singer adroitly tells the complex story through flashbacks, cross-cutting, and voice-over narration. Such nimble handling of the intricacies of the nonlinear narrative adds to the suspense, leaving viewers on the edge of their seats until the clever, satisfying finale. Singer's expertise in the technical aspects of filmmaking--his use of a dioptic filter to keep two close-up faces in focus, as well as his inventive use of six-frame step printing--helped him earn his reputation as a visually impressive and stylish director. Filled with excellent performances from veteran actors (Kevin Spacey won his first Academy Award for his breakthrough role as Verbal Kint), THE USUAL SUSPECTS placed Singer squarely on the cinematic map.

Memorable Quotes

"What I want to know is, who's the gimp?"----Hockney (Kevin Pollak) to McManus (Stephen Baldwin), Fenster (Benicio Del Toro), and Keaton (Gabriel Byrne) about Kint (Kevin Spacey)

"And that was how it started. The five of us being brought in on a trumped up charge, to be leaned on by half wits....What the cops never figured out, and what I know now, was that these men would never break, never lie down, never bend over for anybody. Anybody."----Kint to Agent Kujan (Chazz Palminteri)

"That guy is tense. Tension is a killer. I used to be in a barber shop quartet in Skokie, Illinois. The baritone was this guy named Kip Tiskin, big fat guy...and I mean like Orca fat. He was so stressed in the morning...."----Kint to Kujan

"I'm not a rat."----Kint to Kujan

"But you say you saw Keaton die. I think you're covering his ass and he's still out there somewhere. I think he's behind that whole circus at the harbor. My bet is that he's using you because you're stupid and you think he's your friend."----Kujan to Kint

"The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist."----Kint to Kujan

"It was Keyser Soze, Agent Kujan. I mean the devil himself. How do you shoot the devil in the back? What if you miss?"----Kint to Kujan

"But why me? Why not Fenster or McManus or Hockney? Why me? I'm stupid. I'm a cripple. Why me?"----Kint to Kujan|"Because you're a cripple, Verbal. Because you're stupid, because you're weaker than them."----Kujan to Kint

ReelViews 9 of 10
Singer does an excellent job of blending humor into his noir thriller. There's enough to avoid a sense of ponderousness, but not so much that The Usual Suspects becomes campy. Unlike many motion pictures, this one continually builds to its conclusion. It starts out as the story of a small job, then evolves into a search for the dreaded Keyser Soze -- a legendary criminal of such viciousness that even hardened men like Keaton think twice before crossing him. The Usual Suspects moves towards its inevitable finale, Soze's shadowy presence becomes increasingly more ominous and important, and we get the sense that those who think they hold the cards actually have the weakest hands. In the way it folds its various elements into a single resolution (which the astute viewer will be able to guess beforehand), Singer's film can be accused of toying with the audience. However, at times like this, when the person tugging the strings is adept at his craft, being toyed with can be a worthwhile experience. The Usual Suspects is an accomplished synthesis of noir elements and, as such, is an entertaining entry to the genre. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 9 of 10
The Usual Suspects is the movie that made the name "Keyser Soze" a part of the pop culture landscape. In the movie, he's the boogie man, a myth among the criminal class that becomes all too real for the five crooks...That story all by itself, unreeling like a twisted fairytale from the mouth of Kint as he spills to police detective Dave Kujan (Chazz Palminteri), is enough to make a satisfying movie. The corker of a twist ending is what puts it over the top and transforms something good into something great...Everything went right with The Usual Suspects. Singer had only made one feature film before, Public Access, but his sophomore effort feels like it was made by a wily veteran...Ottman reveals that the first time he played his elegant score for the producers, it was approved, but some would have preferred something that sounded more contemporary--in other words, something that would have dated the film. But Singer and company dodged that bullet, and with the excellence of McQuarrie's screenplay and the life given it by this singular ensemble, The Usual Suspects has taken its place among the cream of crime dramas. - Pam Grady
