Brilliant film – great to see it on DVD. I saw the film when it first came out (1995) but it nice being able to re-watch certain parts. In the bonus materials, the director and crew actual point out clues to puzzle. Great acting – especially Kevin Spacey (I always think of this film whenever he is mentioned as an actor) believe he won an Academy Award for this performance. I’ll probably need to watch it one more time before I return it, to see if I can find any more clues to the surprising ending.

Wow! One of the most extraordinary final scene plot twists I've ever encountered. Made we want to go back and watch the film again to try to unravel its complex plot. Truly brilliant- I never saw that coming!

Excellent, brilliant, witty, star cast with acting to boot. A must have for anyone that loves a good clever plot. A bunch of misfit criminals get together to do a job, what they do not know is that they have stepped on a so called criminal in the form of satan him self's toes. Then you have to try & figure out, who the snitch is what went wrong. The twist at the end is epic and one of the best in history. This movie is a masterpiece with an amazing ironic climax! 10/10

Great story. I called Keyser Soze too. It's too bad the jerks in the comments section felt they had to spoil the ending. If you read this don't look below.

Beautifully crafted, with an ending that left me feeling like I'd been clonked on the head. Me, actually yelling at the screen. 20 years later, it's still a mind-blowing classic.

Enjoy The mini stories and pay attention to the beginning sequence. Also, make notes of how each character presents himself. I called "Keyser Soze" from the beginning. :3
And now *poof* he's gone.

Great ensemble of actors. A solid, well written storyline with a grand twist in the end. This is one movie that will have you watching repeatedly. Highly recommend.
