The Top Ten
What's not to love about this movie? Kevin Spacey winning tht Oscar was much deserved! He putting one over on the police and his clean getaway was classic. Very well done! - curlyqgirly
This blown me away. Fight Club, I knew the ending in the first 5 minutes of watching the film. I have yet to watch "The Prestige" but I will soon.
In the meantime, if you have not seen The Usual Suspects, you must! - Gasmaskboi19371945
And like that, he gone.

It should be required watching. It has the best ending of all time. - Y2K
If you haven't seen it, you need to watch it.
One of my favorite endings to a movie. They did it perfectly! - MontyPython
This and citizen kane are my favorite twistsV 2 Comments
I saw Fight Club for the first time in 2014 and somehow never heard about the twist. I loved every second of the movie the first time I saw it, and when the twist happened at the end it completely blew me away. Incredible movie.
such a hard choice between this and the usual suspects... but this wins - arsenal193
This is actually my favorite movie of all times, not just the one with the best twist ending
Great movie.V 1 Comment
Honestly, it's a good movie and all, but in the end it's just a story played backwards and I could actually see the twist coming. I think it deserves to be on this list, because of good acting and in the end a great story, but I'm just writing this because in my opinion Fight club should be over this one, because you definitely couldn't think of this ending! No disrespect to this movie anyway.
The best twist endings are the ones that provide some new insight into the character and his motivations, and this is one of those. The set up for this movie is nearly perfect, and the twist is no exception. - beasthound
Saw? Seriously? Thanks God, I'm not a kid to love stupid saw franchise.
The Prestige is already cult film with smart storyline and phenomenal ending. I could easily predict The Usual Suspects' ending but I was blown away with this one - Alexandr
A mind boggling film with great suspense and phenomenal ending. I wish every film was like this one.
FACT: Christopher Nolan is amazing
GREATEST TWIST OF ALL TIME!
BRILLIANT MOVIE COMPLETELY TOOK ME OFF GUARD!
WHERE IS PSYCHO THOUGH?
The most unimaginable twist of all time,should be number 1
i mean anyone could figure out the twist in sixth sense in six minutes but OLDBOY'S twist is just amazing and breathtaking
I love thriller, and this was the best thriller that I have ever seen. When I started seeing this, I was fully conscious what gonna happen next... It is awesome... Specially the third part...
A dark and ominous ghost story... And the ending is as eerie as they come.
Ripped off sixth sense with the twist
I already guessed it what's going to happen. So I don't think its very twisty to this gen viewers. But yeah, for a 60s movie its very twisting. - zxm
Absolutely brilliant. Yes the other movie endings above are phenominal but this one truly is the winner. The whole movie is dark and grimy and while it is not a torture porn or gore flick it certainly doesn't shy away from blood, death, and several particularly nasty scenes and implications. But the end...
The ending is a bright country side, a polar opposite to everything leading up to the climax. At this point we're happy, but wary, as viewers- I mean, hey, we've caught the bad guy, we win. And then you see Morgan Freeman's face as he looks in "The Box" and swings around to look at Mills, far in the back ground. That line "Back off, John Doe has the upper hand, I repeat, he has the upper hand" completely throws off the viewer. Mills (Brad Pitt) has a gun to the bad guy's head. And then everything falls apart as he reveals it is Mill's wife's head, and that John Doe and Mills are to be the final sins if Mill's chooses to kill Doe.
Only #15? Seriously? Don't get me wrong; 90s twists and Hitchcock twists are fine in their own right, but this one comes from what is RIGHTFULLY known as one of the greatest scenes in cinema history! The best part: Lucas had been planning it as he made A New Hope, (previously just known as Star Wars).
If the ending wasn't ruined to you like it wasn't to me and you see that it changed everything for you. While there were some good endings in movies, none shocked the world like this one
#19 my ASS! "NO, I am your father" did you forget that scene
People in the modern age know the twist before they watch it. it is still an amazing movie
One of my favourite movies ever. - DarkSideOfDragons
This is a good one.
If you haven't seen it, watch it.
A mind blowing movie
Blew me away
Ha! What a great movie, didn't know the oldies could be so crafty
I'm assuming this is the original version when I ask HOW IS THIS NOW FIRST. The ending perfectly captures the fears of the Cold War. It's more than just a twist ending. IT ACTUALLY MAKES YOU THINK!
This is one of those endings that may seem irrelevant, but the more you think about it, the better understanding you get of it and suddenly you realize how amazing it is. If you don't like movies that make you think, however, you won't like this ending.V 2 Comments
I love this ending as much as anyone, but this doesn't seem like a twist ending, it's more of an ambiguous ending. Now, it would be a twist if the top didn't stop spinning, but we don't get to see if it did or not. That's what makes it a cliffhanger, not a twist.
