* RewatchBonus: It's been argued that the film completely changes upon a second viewing due to the nature of the twist. Unfortunately, due to said twist falling under ItWasHisSled territory, it can be hard for many viewers to go in blind.

* EsotericHappyEnding: Inverted. Initially, the film might come off as having a DownerEnding, with [[spoiler: Verbal getting off scott-free and escaping just before Kujan twigs on... but the authorities now know what Keyser looks like. Considering Verbal's entire goal was to kill a man [[HeKnowsTooMuch who could identify him]], it looks like he might not be in the clear just yet...]]

Considering Verbal's entire goal was to kill a man [[HeKnowsTooMuch who could identify him]], and also taking into account Dave Kujan's [[InspectorJavert more obssessive tendencies]] which pretty much guarantees he will always chase after him even out of spite alone, it looks like he might not be in the clear just yet...]]

** Several times Söze is referred to as the Devil. The main character (and one of the prime suspects as to who Söze is) later played the Devil in ''Film/EndOfDays''. One of his minions in the latter is played by [[spoiler:"Hockney" (Kevin Pollak)]].

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: There isn't much evidence that [[spoiler:Verbal Kint is Keyser Söze]] that doesn't come from the movie's UnreliableNarrator. It's quite possible that [[spoiler:he's just a conman trading on the name and reputation of a legendary crime lord to get what he wants.]]
