People got trapped in a motel because of flooding and an unexpected killer. Malcolm suffers dissociative identity disorder based on a journal. Sufficient character development with sincere performances all around. Ray Liotta was the definite standout. Score and premise similar to Psycho. Execution, pace of the story, editing and direction made the film interesting. A type of thriller that keeps its viewer engaged until its conclusion. Only reservation this reviewer had were the believability of the plot and it's possibility of killing off each personality since there were 10. Identity is a creative well-casted picture that can be enjoyed.

Mildly suspenseful mind game that unfolds nicely. The ending is a strange twist that is not easily guessed, but will leave some aggravated.

The definition of a cheap thriller.

And like so many other cheap thrillers, this one has (drum roll please): You guessed it! The dumb blonde that cries for the majority of the time she's on screen!
I just can't get over how terrible the script is developed. These characters have been brought together for a reason. Into a claustrophobic situation. There is room for likability and character study there, but no. Instead the characters just fight and prove themselves to be nothing less than stupid, basically running into the clutches of the killer.
There is a completely unnecessary subplot in this movie, that lasts five minutes. This is kind of a spoiler, but do you really care?:
The blonde in this film told her boyfriend she was pregnant, so that they could get married. Truth is: She wasn't pregnant. She was just jealous th...

A psychological thriller/slasher!

A sudden and violent rainstorm brings together ten strangers at an isolated Nevada motel; the motel manager (John Hawkes), a spoilt, arrogant movie star (Rebecca DeMornay), and her chauffeur (John Cusack who turns out to be an ex-policeman), another policeman (Ray Liotta) and the convict (Jake Busey), he is escorting, a former prostitute trying to change her life around (Amanda Peet), and two married couples, one newly wedded and the other with a quiet traumatized son. The mother of this boy has been injured after being struck by the film star's limousine.

One by one the members of this group start to die violent deaths. They discover that the killings are taking a sequential queue and realize that one of them must be a killer; the question is "Which one?" And what does a mass murderer...

One of the best endings in any scary movie!

I see Identity as a hidden treasure. John Cusak, Ray Liotta, and others give great performances in one of the most mysterious and thrilling movies of all time. I know that is a bold statement, but it a statement that is very much justified. I would first like to comment on the story itself. You will hear people refer to "twists". I happen to be very sick of "twist" endings because they are overused and filmmakers these days rely immensely on "twists" to yield drama or reaction from audience. They tend to abandon the rest of the plot and the storyline and focus purely on this reaction. Well, this annoying trend leads most of movie audiences losing interest in movies in general because if you are like me, you'll feel that most of these movies are predictable and lose much of their impact. O...
