Verbal tells Kujan an incrediblestory of five thugs who came together to pull off the job of their lives with $91 million in the balance and Keyzer Soze at their backs: Keaton (Gabriel Byrne), Hockney (Kevin Pollak), Fenster (Benicio Del Toro), and Kint himself. Somehow the job of a lifetime ended in a massacre -and a mystery: Who is Keyser Soze?
     "The best and most stylish crime movie of the 90s" says 'Newsweek.' Packed with "explosive action" says 'Playboy.' As Kujan is about to discover there's nothing usual at all about "The Usual Suspects."
 Other Thoughts:  Overall a great movie.
