The Usual Suspects - * * * 1/2*

Highly entertaining, highly convoluted whodunnit. Kevin Spacey, Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Pollak, Stephen Baldwin and Benicio Del Toro star as five cons who join together after all are picked out for a police lineup. In a series of flashbacks, the film shows the variety and extent of their crimes, ending in what may or may not be a bungled mission involving a blown-up ship and more than twenty dead men. The story unfolds mostly from the perspective of cop Chazz Palminteri, and through the narration/confession of Spacey. There are plenty of twists in the plot to keep you on your toes throughout the film. Good acting all around.
