5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing and Suspenseful! Bryan Singer's Masterpiece!, April 25, 2001
This review is from: The Usual Suspects [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The Usual Suspects is one of the finest films I've ever seen. It is peppered with magnificent performances, excellent direction, and a brilliant script(Which incidentally won the Oscar for Best Screenplay). Director Bryan Singer molds a tight and entertaining tale of five men, falsely brought in on charges of a stolen vehicle, then deciding to join forces and commit more crimes. What transgresses is a story of deceit, corruption and murder. Not only is the tale incredibly gripping, it is also downright hilarious at some points, making it such an enjoyable film. Kevin Spacey delivers an amazing performance as Verbal Kint, a scam artist cripple. Gabriel Byrne is great as the tough but compassionate Dean Keaton. Kevin Pollack delivers a strong and razor sharp comic relief role as Todd Hockney. One of the most surprisingly fantastic performances comes from Stephen Baldwin, who really packs a punch in this one. Benicio Del Toro gained rave reviews for his role as Fenster in this film , with due cause. Chazz Palminteri is also very intimidating as the cop trying to bring them down. This film won two Oscars, for original screenplay(Christopher McQuarrie, can you believe this was an original?!) and very deservedly for Kevin Spacey and his awesome performance. There is a surprise ending that will knock you off your seat. Sorry, can't give it away. Go out and see it.

Verbal? No, I think his name was VIRGIL.
And they called him a "gimp".

Who is Caesar So Say?, is the question.

Czar. Cesar. Kaiser...
"The more things change,
the more they stay the same",
is the French proverb.

Virgil says that he fears the devil, and not God.
And Virgil also does not seem to abhor that which is
evil either. The devil is a liar and a murderer.
