We went to the theater to see Identity. Being a big John Cusack fan, I expected something worthwhile. I wasn’t disappointed. The movie is a classic type thriller with a group of people trapped by a storm in a run down motel in the middle of nowhere. There is a parallel story of a convicted murderer whose mental competence is being examined to determine if he can be punished for his crimes. In the motel, the characters are forced to try to figure out who they can trust as one by one, characters end up dead.

I found the movie tense and exciting. As he often does Cusack plays a sort of everyman that is easy to identify with. The way the movie plays out, is interesting, but not entirely satisfying to me, but I still enjoyed it quite thoroughly. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it an 84.
