Thank you! Tremendously overrated. I thought it was one of the worst films I've seen. 1.5 stars from me at the moment, and that's generous from what I remember.

Agreed. I do think it is a great movie, but it’s far too high up on the iMDB Top 250.

Great movie indeed. I don't know how anyone could think it's overrated.

Just watched The Usual Suspects. Great movie, though I called the twist about 20 minutes in. The film does a good job of playing on the idea of narrative and the reliability of the point of view. Some really nice camera work too.

First 100 minutes of the movie, I had no attachment to any of the characters and I thought the pacing was very uneven. Then they revealed the final twist... and I've never been so annoyed after watching a movie in my life. Thank God, the acting was good.
