Wait...What just happened? (Plot twists)

Sort by: Showing 20 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
How do you shoot the devil in the back? What if you miss?

Who is Keyser Soze? We follow the story from the point of view of poor quiet, unassuming Verbal the entire time, slowly sympathizing with the guy. What do we get for our compassion? The discovery during the last two minutes of the film that Verbal is the elusive super criminal. You can't help but feel his sense of triumph as the limp becomes a swagger and he rides away into the sunset.

What happened in the hotel?

After an hour and a half of watching the characters struggle through a storm, stuck in a roadside hotel, and slowly getting picked off one by one in some pretty violent ways by a mysterious murderer, we discover that every person there is really only a personality in the mind of one very disturbed serial murderer, and that the child--the secretly-a-psycho-killer child--wins out in the end.

The things you own end up owning you.

I am a figment of Jack's fractured personality. Or at least that's what Tyler Durden would have been able to say at the end of this flick, had the narrator not shot himself in the head, effectively putting an end to one of the best looking psycosis ever!

Sooner or later, a man who wears two faces forgets which one is real.

Gere has been basing his entire defense of poor, stuttering Norton on the fact that Norton had suffered so much sexual abuse at the hands of the priest that his personality splintered. After an episode in the courtroom where his alter personality comes out and assaults the prosecutor, and in which he is found not guilty by reason of insanity, Norton's character admits that he's been faking it all along. Sneaky jerk.

Are you ready for the truth?

Yup, Bruce Willis is still pretty much immortal, but what you didn't count on was that Jackson actually caused all of the disasters and massacres that he uses to explain Willis's talents. He's done so in order to find an unbreakable man.

How many films are you watching with interest when all of the sudden something happens that makes you have to go back and watch the whole damn film again just to figure out how they work the last minute in? How about the ones that you think that you have the endingg predicted and then, BOOM! Everyone is dead? Yup...this list is all about those films. Watch with caution. Twists will eventually be added, but with spoiler tags.
