The Most Shocking Endings In Movie History
- Published on: 3/2/2019
- Seeing the characters we've spent a whole movie getting to know ride off into the sunset might be a great feeling, but sometimes a greater thrill can be found in a good shock. Luckily, there are plenty of writers and directors who are adept at leaving audiences utterly speechless as the credits roll. Massive spoilers ahead.
Bryan Singer's neo-noir classic The Usual Suspects follows the interrogation of seemingly helpless Roger "Verbal" Kint, one of only two survivors of a devastating fire on a ship docked at the Port of Los Angeles. Kevin Spacey's character spins the detectives and viewers a long and twisted tale of drugs, deceit and death, explaining that everything comes back to a mysterious mob boss by the name of Keyser Söze. The twist? Kint was Keyser Söze all along, which the officers realize only a few moments too late. As Kint exits the police station and shuffles off down the street, his awkward gait starts to straighten out - and we realize we've been had.
