Rating of
3/4 

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.

"Identity" by Yojimbo

A group of strangers stranded in an isolated motel during a storm are stalked by an unseen killer. Identity is one of the earlier examples of the M. Night Shyamalan "twist" school of film-making, and as such stands or falls on your willingness to swallow its rather absurd premise. In its favour, it's nicely shot, atmospheric and well played by a talented ensemble cast, John Cusack displaying his usual quirky charm which plays off well against Ray Liotta's typically intense persona. It's all very intriguing at first, but as the plot becomes ever more far-fetched I'm sure many will become exasperated. But if you are open-minded enough to accept its inherent silliness, Identity makes for a made if very, very hokey slice of entertaining nonsense in a similar vein to The Game or Shutter Island.

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...
