ReviewSource ReelViews
Review 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.

Review 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.
