THE SETUP Five criminals among them ringleader Keaton (Gabriel Byrne) and crippled Verbal (Kevin Spacey) are dragged into police custody after a robbery; while in lock-up they decide to pull a heist.
THE JOB Steal $91 million worth of cocaine belonging to legendary fearsome mobster Keyser Soze.THE CATCH Where to begin? Verbal, narrating events to an investigating cop, tells a tricky, complicated tale of shifting identities and double-crossing, all of which hinges on the single question: Who is Keyser Soze?
DOES CRIME PAY? The ''usual suspects'' meet a fiery, violent end at a San Pedro pier, but at least Kevin Spacey was able to walk away with a Best Supporting Actor Oscar.
