Movie Summary

Director:
James Mangold
Released:
2003
Rating:
R
Identity is a smart psychological thriller centered around the murders of a group of people who have coincidentally convened at an abandoned motel in the middle of nowhere. The film was written by Michael Cooney who drew inspiration from the Agatha Christie novel And Then There Were None. James Mangold (Girl, Interrupted; Walk the Line; 3:10 to Yuma) directs. One by one, strangers arrive at a deserted motel during a ominous thunder storm. It is not long before some of them are murdered, and as their count begins to dwindle, they realize they have more in common with each other than they originally thought. But who is committing these atrocious murders? Identity stars John Cusack, Jake Busey, Rebecca De Mornay, Clea DuVall, and Ray Liotta, to name a few. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, you realize Identity has thrown you through another loop. One of the best psychological thrillers available.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Fine escapist fare with a saving sense of humor and an underlying premise that, when revealed, proves to be arguably plausible even if a reach.

  • 60

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Reasonably well-executed thriller. It suffers not from awkwardness or silliness, which would make it more fun, but rather from its air-brushed, expensive pretentiousness.

  • 60

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Some fancy footwork in the writing and directing can't disguise the hoary "Ten Little Indians" origins of Identity.
