Oscar-winning Kevin Spacey takes centre stage among a brilliant ensemble cast in one of the best thrillers of the 1990s.

Gabriel Byrne, Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Pollak, Benicio Del Toro, Chazz Palminteri, Pete Postlethwaite and now disgraced star Spacey are all on top form in an absolutely riveting movie.

It is one of those thrillers that is best approached knowing as little as possible about the labyrinthine plot, all the better to enjoy its  twists and turns.

Suffice to say that the film catapulted director Bryan Singer into the position of one of the hippest young directors in Hollywood and features a fiendish closing surprise that you won’t see coming.
