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.
The idea for this movie started only with the concept of a movie poster of five men in a lineup.
How you doing Keaton?
Keaton: I can't feel my legs... Keyser.
Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey) tells a federal agent Dave Kujan (Chazz Palminterri) that he took part in at least 15 separate felonies and yet he is not arrested for these confessions. The crimes include armed robbery, kidnapping and felony murder.
How or why this doesn't occur is never explained in the narrative of the film.
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."
