Identity (2003)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

Verdict – 3/5

Pros –
1) Multiple plot-twists towards the end of the movie. The final twist came when the audiences thought the movie is already over.
2) The whodunit premise – a convict, a patient, adverse weather, and 10 strangers.

 

Cons –
1) I lost interest when 20 minutes before the climax, it’s revealed that the entire action is taking place inside the fat man’s head. A major flaw in the screenplay.

 

Quote –
As I was going up the stairs, I met a man who wasn’t there. He wasn’t there again today. I wish I wish he’d go away.
