A sole survivor tells of the twisty events leading up to a horrific gun battle on a boat, which began when five criminals met at a seemingly random police lineup.
Kevin Spacey was initially interested in playing either Keaton or Kujan.
How you doing Keaton?
Keaton: I can't feel my legs... Keyser.
In the opening murder, the gunman is not wearing gloves. After the shooting, he is shown in close-up wearing gloves, dropping his cigarette. Then during his escape, while in shadow, he is visibly no longer wearing gloves. (Audio commentary reveals the close-up hand to be that of composer/editor John Ottman).
The editor, John Ottman, edited the movie on film. He felt that all the editing done electronically at the time was horrible because all the good editors were still working on film (which is much more difficult). Because of this he thought about putting "Edited on a piece of s*** Steenbeck" at the end of the credits, but instead settled for the more subtle line "Edited on film." Tim Robbins was directing 'Dead Man Walking' at the time and heard about John's idea, which sparked that film's credit ending of "This film was edited on old machines."
