Is the old magician Lionel Shrike still alive in the safe, waiting that they just throw him the right key to open the lock?
Dylan says that he drowned when the safe material warped in the water. This was the whole premise of Dylan's revenge against the company (who's name I forget) but who the final cash was stolen from, for making cheap safes which killed his dad.
"fool of a took! Next time throw yourself in instead and rid us of your stupidity!"
It was, like many scenes in this film, seemingly symbolic but ultimately pure visual drivel with no real rhyme or reason to it.
Or perhaps that WAS the actual rhyme or reason. We, the audience, were subjected to the slight-of-hand distraction the magicians themselves use! We start thinking...oh! Lock! Key in water! Oh, I get it! It's a reference to the safe from the beginning and how...WAIT A MINUTE...WE'VE BEEN TRICKED INTO WATCHING THIS FILM!?
