YMMV: The Usual Suspects
8.8: Roger Ebert gave this film 1.5-out-of-4 stars, one his lowest scores during his long career of reviewing films. This was the opposite to public opinion which gave the film 3.5-out-of-4 stars. Roger claimed the reason was because he couldn't follow the plot, and the Plot Twist at the end was stupid. Of course, the film is known as one of the greatest Plot Twist films of all time, and it won awards.
The film was also on Owen Gleiberman's 5 worst movies of they year list on the 1995 year end issue of Entertainment Weekly. (It found some vindication on the top 10 video releases the year after.)
Alternative Character Interpretation: There isn't much evidence that Verbal Kint is Kaiser Soze that doesn't come from the movie's Unreliable Narrator. It's not only possible, but quite likely that he's just a conman trading on the name and reputation of a legendary crime lord to get what he wants.
Memetic Badass: Keyser Söze. But then again with a reputation like his, the title is downright inevitable.
Nightmare Fuel: Keyser Söze. He scares almost every criminal in the film.
Seinfeld Is Unfunny: When released, the film instantly became famous for the (truly) shocking twist it had at the end. More than 15 years later, the movie audiences have gotten used to the Mandatory Twist Ending verging into Mind Screw territory, so the ending may leave them simpy wondering what all that hype is about.
It's a case of Fridge Brilliance actually: it's supposed to be one of the subtle clues that Verbal's story is not as it seems.
If you can call it subtle. The first time you watch the film, you kind of let him off the hook for it — of course he'd be a bizarre and mysterious man who goes by an obviously fake name, he's Keyser Söze's lawyer.
Well, he doesn't really go by a fake name- or if he does, it isn't Kobayashi since that is just the make of Agent Kujan's cup.
