IDENTITY is exactly the kind of film Hollywood wants you to think is good, when really it is a tired and pretentious bore that attacks the audience's intelligence with extreme prejudice. The film jumps between dual plots, with a psychologist interviewing a condemned mass murderer while elsewhere a group of strangers convene on an isolated motel in the desert, where they are offed one by one by the killer in their midst. Anyone with half a brain is able to determine the predictable plot twist within the first 10m, which completely destroys any chances the film had at developing any suspense or mystery. It is baffling how upfront the plot is, as it takes a an arrogant filmmaker to think so little of the audience as to spell out the big twist in the opening of your film. Jake Busey is just one of several ridiculously over the top actors in this mess, none of whom garner any support or become even remotely interesting at any point in the picture. The cherry on the cake comes in the form of the pathetic reveal of the true killer, who should have come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that was paying attention. This is a sad excuse of a suspense thriller that was sold on big names and safe Hollywood scares for people that hate Horror movies.
