Roger Kint (a.k.a Verbal) sits and talks to U.S. Customs Special Agent Dave Kujan with his immunity knowingly in tack.  Kujan wants to know who set a ship ablaze, killing 27 men and injuring 1.  Kujan believes Verbal is holding back something and wants all the details since he was the sole uninjured survivor.  With a calm tone, Verbal informs Kujan that the fire didn’t start on that ship, but with a course of events in New York 6 weeks ago.  Verbal along with 4 other men were pulled into a police station and questioned about a hijacking.  While the 5 men sit in a cell, they come up with a plan to get the cops back.  Keaton, McManus, Hockney, Verbal, and Fenster will rob crooked cops and sell whatever they get in another state.  This robbery didn’t just rob the cops, they robbed Keyser Söze.  Söze is a Turkish mobster who strikes fear in the heart of everyone who hears his name.  While Verbal tells his story, Kuja has to determineSöze is real or a myth.

This movie has become a cult classic because it contains one of the biggest reveals in movie history.  This movie has a lot of moving parts so pay attention to everything you see and hear.  What makes this movie great to view is its complex characters.  These guys aren’t just bad guys robbing people.  Some struggle with the plan, some struggle with the past, and some with faith.  It’s these struggles that lead them to a life of crime.  So watch this if you have enough time to give it your full attention.
