The Usual Suspects 
Didn't Live Up to the Hype
2.5/4 stars

I really failed to grasp why this movie has received such high praises. The lineup scene is classic and hilarious, the rest is shallow and undeveloped. The twist at the end wasn't an OMG shocker like 'Fight Club' or 'Planet of the Apes', it was an "Oh that makes sense now" kind of twist. I dunno. I guess I was also expecting amazing things from this. Obviously worth a watch because I am seem to be alone on this.

You're not alone. I finally watched this film earlier in the year after what felt like ages of hearing/reading about how good it was supposed to be. While I wouldn't go so far as to call it "shallow" (after all that's really relative to society and Hollywood - but this is a discussion for some other time), or quite "underdeveloped" I would call it severely over rated. This is something that happens from time time (Requiem for a Dream being the number one "mystery" in this respect) and how a thing first gains its momentum to such a degree is anyone's guess. Still it begins and like a small snowball rolling down the side of Mount Everest it builds and builds. Fortunately there's always one or two who can see the whole thing for the snowjob it actually is. I have to say, enjoyed this film when I first saw it, but by the end was also scratching my head as to why its gained so much of the praise it has. Not a bad one, just not the "great" film everyone seems to think it to be.
