About this movie

Following a truck hijack in New York, five conmen are arrested and brought together for questioning. As none of them is guilty, they plan a revenge operation against the police. The operation goes well, but then the influence of a legendary mastermind criminal called Keyser Söze is felt. It becomes clear that each one of them has wronged Söze at some point and must pay back now. The payback job leaves 27 men dead in a boat explosion, but the real question arises now: Who actually is Keyser Söze?

Kevin Spacey maybe hated at present for trying it on with someone at a party while he was drunk, guess the other guy was as well as it took him 20 year's to come forward bit whatever anyone thinks, you can't take away his performance in this movie. In fact all the actors are great, Gabriel Bryne is well cast as the hard man and leader of the group but the story is even better with enough twists and turns to really keep you guessing. Modern day classic

A great caper, this movie is so well done in just about every way imaginable that any person I show it to walks away having loved it. By now, this "cult" classic has garnered much more acclaim than in the 90s when I saw it, which is only deserving of its fantastic quality. Bryan Singer can make nature films for the rest of his life having secured a filmmaker's legacy with this one alone.

I was lucky enough to watch this on the big screen, on a last minute, late night visit to the cinema. Was a mind blowing experience and firmly placed this in my top three all time films. (Shawshank & Empire Strikes Back fwiw) Exquisite acting, and a whodunnit that leaves you questioning yourself, and wanting to watch it again for clues to the answer of the mother of all questions. 5*
