** Keep in mind that the guy who could identify Keyser Soze also ratted out about fifty other criminals. ''Any'' of them could have put out a hit on him.

** He doesn't simply kill anyone who can identify him. The target was special because he could identify Soze and had intimate knowledge of his criminal enterprise. In other words, this one person was both willing and able to send Soze to prison.

* So who killed Edie?

** "Kobayashi" had her transferred to LA for an extradition hearing and had his men on her 24 hours a day. It was most likely a matter of snapping his fingers the moment it became logical to do so (after Keaton confirmed dead and Verbal getting his immunity deal).

*** Some of the boat stuff takes place after Kujan's "I'll tell you what I know. Stop me when this sounds familiar..." line, which suggests that some of the boat stuff might be guesses by Kujan about the lack of cocaine, the killing or Marquez, etc. In general, I just assume that Verbal and Kujan are just telling guesses bits of information they know, and guesses about what was happening based on what verbal was hearing, and the finer details are being filled in as a movie convention. (Either way, Kujan comes across as someone who would catch obvious oddities in a story pretty quickly, so presumably verbal isn't actually describing details he would have no way of knowing, as Kujan would probably notice pretty quickly.)

** I think Kint set up some kind of deal to avoid prosection. I may be wrong but the reason he is talking with Kujan at all is because he signed a plea of immunity for testifying against the others who are dead. Kujan states that he read the report and thinks Kint is full of it and Keaton was behind everything.

** I think most people were referring to the end of the film when they say that. How could Kint know how each of the members died? I mean sure he saw Keaton get shot (in his story anyway) but how did he know that Mcmanus died with a knife in his neck? How did he know that there was no dope on the boat when he was on the dock faraway from the other members ? I think people had these questions in mind when saying that theory.

** How did he know? Because he wasn't on the dock. *He* killed Hockney, McManus, and Keaton, that's how he knew.

* Why does the DVD menu give away the surprise ending? Is this because ItWasHisSled?
** Well, we gave it away here. Did you expect them to keep it a secret after they had your money?

** Remember Kint is an UnreliableNarrator. We don't actually know how much he says is true. Kujan knows about the lineup. But we don't even know if the gang was involved in the Taxi Service job or Saul Berg's murder, or if Kint is just taking credit. Nobody who is alive knows what "Kobayashi" said to them or who he really was. Even the fence "Redfoot" may or may not exist. They know that there was $91 million in cash at the dock, supposedly to buy cocaine that was never there. All that Kujan really knows for sure is that five guys were arrested for a hijacking in New York, released, and then six weeks later four of them turn up dead in California or go missing, and Kint is the only known survivor.
