Yes Yes. I checked this one out because it was ranked number 20 on Imdb's top 250 and because it is considered a classic "who-dun-it" crime film.
I did have expectation for greatness and my expectations were met and actually exceeded.
The twist was freakin awesome. Kinda like the twist in the sixth sense in a way but cooler, much much cooler.
I knew Kevin Spacey was a great actor after seeing him in Se7en, American Beauty, and The Negotiator. By crackey, he blew those performances outta the water with this film. He won the oscar for best supporting actor and I completely agree with the academy's choice on this one. If there is just one reason to see this film it would be to watch Kevin Spacey's performance.
The Film is an ensemble piece and it was very tastefully done. Benicio Del Toro would have to be my one and only complaint about this movie. I couldt understand what he was saying the entire movie. It was pretty damn frustrating. That is the ONLY issue I had with this movie though. The dialogue was sharp and witty and the story unique but at the same time familiar.
Without a doubt:
