Probably the best film in its genre,
This review is from: The Usual Suspects (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
If you haven't seen this before you are in for a real treat. The story unfolds at a rapid pace leaving you enthralled in its twists and turns. Then - when you're thoroughly confused - you get hit with a plot twist which will genuinely stun you. It honestly left me speechless and desperately wanting to watch it again with my newly acquired insight.
On second viewing the film seems completely different. It goes from being an outstanding whodunit to being a fantastic heist movie. Now that you know what's happening the pace seems to become slower and easier to follow. You'll see things that seem so obvious you'll be amazed you didn't notice them first-time-around. You'll have time to get to know the characters and enjoy their - often very humorous - exchanges. You'll also appreciate Singer's superb directing.
Although I'll never be able to recapture the magic of seeing it for the first time, it remains one of my favorite films which I never tire of watching.
