Rating: :banana: :banana: :banana: In this modernization of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None," 10 strangers gather in a motel on a dark and stormy night, only to become trapped with a killer who begins to knock them off one by one. Director James Mangold infuses life into the screenplay by Michael Cooney, which would otherwise be a dull translation to the screen, but the last half hour or so is confusing beyond words until the very end, where it all comes together. It may take some people more than one viewing to take it all in, but in the end, it works. Most of the performances were rather bland, with the exceptions of John Cusack, Amanda Peet, and Rebecca De Mornay, who is given far too little screen time. The film is very well shot and gory, with a couple creative and suspenseful death sequences. IDENTITY may not have turned out so well had it not been for the ending, which, in a way, makes you rethink the whole movie.
