The Usual Suspects

The movie begins with a ship believed to have $91 million worth of drug money blowing up on a San Pedro pier ending up with 27 dead bodies. Miraculously there were two survivors, a severely burned and very scared Hungarian terrorist and Roger “Verbal” Kint (Kevin Spacey), a crippled con-man. Verbal is brought in to the police station for interrogation. He starts to tell how he got there and it all begins 6 weeks earlier when he and four other criminals are brought in for a line-up concerning a hijacked truck loaded with gun parts. The police don’t have much evidence but the five are held together in the same cell for one night. They don’t know each other, the only thing they have in common is that they are all suspects, and as they sit there waiting to be charged or released they all agree to make a heist together. As the story continue it becomes more and more clear that they have one more thing in common…Keyzer Soze, a name that brings fear and terror even to the most cold blooded criminal. The only one believed to be able to identify Keyzer Soze is the burned hospitalized Hungarian terrorist.
This is so far my all-time favorite movie. Kevin Spacey is just such a splendid actor and the character he plays in The Usual Suspects fits him just like a favorite pair of old slippers. The other actors do their parts really good too of course (Gabriel Byrne, Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Pollak, Benicio Del Toro, Chazz Palminteri). This is a movie that can make people not biting their nails start doing it, so if you haven’t seen this masterpiece yet do it now!
