MOVIE REVIEW

In 1995, Christopher McQuarrie stunned audiences with the powerful The Usual Suspects. So now, five years later, he has returned with The Way of the Gun. However, there are several things that plague this new movie that have nothing to do with the movie itself. First, The Usual Suspects was gripping and surprising, obviously showing McQuarrie at the top of his game. If that was his peak, there's only one way to go from there. Second, it isn't McQuarrie's name that people think of when they recall The Usual Suspects; in fact, they probably haven't heard of him. So you have a story that can't possibly be as good as The Usual Suspects, a movie that everyone has overly high expectations for, and names that can't draw big box office. But there's another reason why The Way of the Gun will never be referred to the way The Usual Suspects is. Full movie review »
