    The end of The Usual Suspects (1995) *SPOILERS*

    The movie might be over a decade old, but the ending, while completely amazing, is also controversial. Some are confident that Verbal Kint was Keyser Söze, while others are convinced it was actually Keaton and that he never died at all. There are others who say that we never even got to see the real Keyser Söse. My question is, what do you guys think and can you back up your theory?

    • It's been too long since I've seen it, so forgive this comment if it's ignorant or inaccurate, but I kind of remember the end being a pretty unambiguous about the reveal that Verbal was Söze. Was that not the case? Did I miss something, or was that not the whole point of the big twist? – ProtoCanon 4 years ago

    I am incredibly nervous for this movie. I really want it to be good, but I’m not getting my hopes way up there. I believe that the movie creators believe they’re creating something with quality, but, as many have said before me, a lot of what gamers like out of video games is our participation/involvement. Can’t speak for everyone, but I love discovering the characters and story game develpors created, in a way they want me to discover it. What we’ve seen in the past with video game movies is characters we should know becoming unrecognizable. Great write up

    Totally see your points. Watching the main character “die” just to be a-ok in two seconds is screenwriter trick that needs to be retired asap. Killing off main characters is rarely done well. At the moment I can think of one movie: Saving Private Ryan, but I’m sure there are others. A bad example that should definitely never be forgotten is what they did in The Matrix with Neo and Trinity. Totally unneeded and ridiculous, but that’s just my opinion.

    Gosh, the Main Character Is Dead!? So, When Do They Come Back?

    I know for a lot of comic book readers the film felt okay, but as I am not one of those I have to say it was hard to get through. Despite both of the heroes’ legacies and hard-to-live-up-to standards, I think Snyder could have made something great and he just didn’t deliver. It’s not even just his fault. The writers cannot go without blame. Personally, the only good thing I saw with the movie was Ben Affleck as Batman. He played the part well, despite the sub-par story line.
