  • Review: "Identity"



    Plot:

    10 strangers are stuck in the middle of the desert where both ends of a highway are flooded so they stay in a hotel. As they begin to know eachother they discover that they are being killed. They get together and try to figure out what is happening.

    Critique:

    Since "The Ring" there haven't been any good thrillers untill this one. In some ways it even surpasses The Ring with alot more shocking surprises and twists. The best way to describe it from my view is calling it a combination of "The Ring," "The Usual Suspects" and "Basic" as it takes the best of characteristics from each film to make a very powerful film. It takes the repulsiveness of 'The Ring", the element of surprise from "The Usual Suspects," and the many twists of "Basic".

    The main 3 characters of the movie were played by John Cusack, Ray Liotta and Amanda Peet. John Cusack best known for such films as "City Hall," "Con Air" and "High Fidelity" and Ray Liotta from the classic "Goodfellas" turn in an expected fine preformance. What surprised me was Amanda Peet as I didn't think she could pull off such character after her silly comedy roles but she did her part well. I am not claiming she was better than the rest but she definitely did good.

    Just like the three movies i mentioned, this movie will leave you with questions to answer and peices to put together. This also makes it difficult to rate the movie as you can't determine if there were plot holes or you just missed certain pointers. Beside what I think are some plot flaws this movie gets a perfect score. It has alot of twists, gore, creepiness and very shocking surprises mixed with humorous moments through the whole film.

    This is a perfect thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and thinking about the Identity...

    Rating: 8.5/10

    MPAA Rating: Rated R for strong violence and language.

    Identity opens Friday, April 25th nationwide.

    Carl: Burns looks happy today. Watch me take advantage of his good mood. Uuh, Mr. Burns. Can I have a raise?
    Burns: Clean out your desk, you're gone!
    Carl: Well, I had a good run.

        Hard for me to admit it but it is better than The Ring and Basic. The usual suspects however is a classic so i can't decide untill is see this again.
