"...Mr. Mangold handles the revelations and reversals of Michael Cooney's script with nerve-racking aplomb. There are horror-film conventions -- eerie sounds, slow camera movements, half-open doors and carefully arranged shadows -- that retain their effectiveness..."New York Times
"...John Cusack is convincing....With moments of mind-bending creepiness..."USA Today
"...Delighting in his own considerable cleverness and cineast's knowledge of movie history, Mangold shuffles the elements like a three-card-monte pro..."
"...A snappily executed little thriller..."
"...With a third act that causes us to rethink everything that has gone before. Ingenious, how simple and yet how devious the solution is..."
"...Sleek and clever....IDENTITY is fine escapist fare with a saving sense of humor..."
Los Angeles Times
"...Stylish....A clever twist on the old strangers-stranded-in-scary motel plot..."
4 stars out of 5 -- "Mangold's noir thriller plays like Agatha Christie meets Alfred Hitchcock....A thriller that satisfies the grey matter, IDENTITY deserves to be seen."Ultimate DVD
