The story then flashes back to an unusual police lineup that includes Keaton, McManus (Stephen Baldwin), Fenster (Benicio Del Toro), Hockney (Kevin Pollak), and the enigmatic crippled Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey) who allegedly have been brought in to be questioned regarding a truck hijacking, but we know this can't be the case since when a lineup is usually done, it's always done with the perp and strangers who have nothing to do with the case.

If you ask me about the story centered on the so-called usual suspects, I wouldnt call it great because of the story that plays out, but because of the characters themselves and how they move this mindless mindf*ck forward.

Even though I had somehow ended up reading the entire screenplay for The Usual Suspects (which spoiled its big twist in the introduction anyway) before actually seeing the film, I still liked it enough to consider it a major favourite back in the day.

Aside from Kevin Spacey, who is undoubtedly the star of the film, there is ex-criminal turned straight Dean Keaton portrayed by Gabriel Byrne who pulls of the role of a cold-hearted murderer turned businessman and husband extremely well, one criticism of his story is that I felt his relationship with criminal lawyer Edie Finneran is left under-explored, with his wife only appearing a few times throughout the film, leaving the emotional side of a man with two sides being left used not as well as it potentially could of in a film like this.

The Usual Suspects suffers from a bad cycle - the characters don't develop much , so the performances seem thin , so you don't care about the characters , so you don't care about what happens to them.

Well, for starters, I love film noir and thrillers, and Singer weaves together a film that is taught and edgy that keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout, as well as trying to second guess what's about to happen next.
