The Usual Suspects | 1995 | R | - 2.7.9

A group of criminals gets involved in a heist gone awry.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A woman's blouse is yanked down during a rape (see Violence/Gore below) but the scene is blurry; her breasts are barely visible.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Many scenes of men with guns and many men are shot and killed (with some blood). Two men are killed in an elevator leaving bloody smears. A man shoots another man at point-blank (we just hear the shots). We see a bloody corpse and charred bodies are brought out of the water. A badly burned man is shown in a few scenes. A man staggers around with a knife in the back of his throat. Men attack and rape a family; the father kills his own family during the attack and then walks away in a blaze of fire. Much talk of violence that isn't shown.

LANGUAGE 9 - 30+ F-words, 35+ scatological terms, and many milder obscenities.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Professional criminals, police interrogations.

MESSAGE - The truth is found in unexpected places.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
