Winner of two 1995 ACADEMY AWARDS®, including Original Screenplay, this masterful, atmospheric film noir enraptured audiences with its complex and riveting storyline, gritty, tour-de-force performances (including an OSCAR®-Winning* turn by Kevin Spacey) and a climax that is truly deserving of the word “stunning.”
A $91 million cocaine heist. A devastating boat explosion. Two survivors. U.S. Customs special agent David Kujan (Chazz Palminteri) is determined to find out who and what’s behind the melee. As he pieces the clues together with the help of a half-charred Hungarian gangster and an outspoken, crippled con man from New York, Kujan soon finds out this story actually begins with five criminal minds...and one infamous master mind.

Cast & Crew
An imaginative, entertaining crime mystery with plenty of nerve and vigor.
If the pleasures of The Usual Suspects are the more superficial ones of ingenuity and style, those are abundantly available. The twists and turns of the plot are an awful lot of fun, while the ending is genuinely satisfying and surprising.
In a season of fat blockbusters, a picture as brainy, bitter, and compact as this one comes as a shock and a treat.
It's a nerve-shredding suspense movie about corruption, a bravura actor's show full of deliciously twisted cops and robbers, and a complex riddle packed with unexpected turns.
For many true movie fiends, noir is the key American movie type, and the most fun when it's done right. The Usual Suspects is done right.
A terrific cast of exciting actors socks over this absorbingly complicated yarn that's been spun in seductively slick fashion by director Bryan Singer.
Singer creates a classy, thought-provoking mystery that is pleasingly old-fashioned and absolutely modern in the sly, slightly self-conscious play it makes with myth and methods of storytelling.
