(20 May 2013)
Josh Hartnett plays an unlucky, mild-mannered young guy with a broken nose, arriving at his friend Nick's deserted flat in New York City. There he meets some odd people who think he is Nick: one is a kooky and charming neighbor Lindsay (Lucy Liu) asking him for sugar and starts chatting with him; the other is two gangsters ordering him to come with them to a tightly-guarded room where their Boss (Morgan Freeman) lives a secluded life.But director Paul MaGuigan is not content with this premise which I find is already interesting enough to make a good crime thriller. The film actually begins with another set of stories apparently unrelated to each other, and the body counts rise very fast in the opening 15 minutes. That's even before you meet Josh Hartnett's character.In the second half of the story, the film ties up its loose ends, putting the pieces into the right places. I kept guessing the truths, but I was not impressed or thrilled with the outcome because each piece of the film presented in the opening is not emotionally involving, related in the flashbacks and fast-cut episodic scenes. Someone gets killed suddenly, then another someone, and then ... you will see the truths behind these apparently random killings, but you have to wait for more than one hour.`Lucky Number Slevin' has a potentially intriguing story with a great cast every producer would dream of, including Ben Kingsley, Bruce Willis and Stanley Tucci plus cameo of Danny Aiello and Robert Forster. For all its solid acting and dead-pan humor from some characters, I didn't find the film interesting as other people think because the film tries to explain too much or to include twists and turns more than necessary.

I was pleasently please with this film.I hardly remember it being in the theater,and can only recall seeing the trailer once,so therefore at the time,I never thought much of this film.Josh Hartnet is becomming a respecable actor,at least in my eyes.At the time of his emergence onto the big screen,I thought he was just going to be another poster boy,17 magazine wanker,but I have to eat my words as I am continously impressed with the work in his films despite some real muts he has partaken in.The title of the film itself, "Lucky # Slevin",it is just original as it is,so I'm glad I trusted my gut and saw this movie.It has a fantastic story/plot,not to mention characters and even better...a great script.Morgan Freeman is cast great as "The Boss",even better is the "Rabi" by phenominal actor Ben Kingsly and even Bruce Willis himself steps up as "Mr. Goodkat" not to mention... Lucy Lu.How perfect is that?Despite negative reviews or misinterpitations/misconseptions made by other amazon members about this film,Lucky # Slevin is in no way,shape or form anything like a Die Hard movie.Were you people high when you watched it?I don't know where that came from,but I suggest you lay off the koolaid.Lucky # Slevin follows much more in the footsteps of Reseviour Dogs,Pulp Fiction,Lock,Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,Snatch,and The Boondock Saints.Bruce Willis's part in this film is very small,yet like all the characters,is intertwinded in the grand skeme of things,just go with the flow and you will understand.I dare not give anything away about this film,I'd only runin it for you,just trust me on this and see this movie,its a real kick in the pants.I guarantee you won't be dissappointed.Well worth owning,this is yet another gem I'm adding to my personal DVD collection.

The comment above me said if you're a film fan then you won't mind thepredictable plot on and you'll still enjoy it. Well I AM a film fan andstill thought it was lame. But that isn't even my biggest concern. Evenif I let that slide, I still can't get past the fact that 90% of themovie was soft focus. I kept wanting to give this film a chance so Iwould try and try to give it my full attention in the event that theplot was good, and even though the acting was good, it still fellshort, and the focus just bothered me way too much. If this was aconscious choice, then it was a bad call. If not, then the 1st AC needsto get new glasses, because they either don't know they need them orthey're not quite thick enough. How did anything get past the dailies?

This movie kept us guessing right to the end. Very suspenseful thriller/mystery.Lots of violence so, if that bothers you - you won't like this movie.There's even some dark comedy.Poor Slevin is a guy that gets caught up in the middle of a war between 2 crime families.How will he get out of this alive?? You'll have to watch to find out!
Claire (15 May 2013)
I was quite excited at the prospect. #1. I love gangster movies and #2.it has a cast with impressive CV's. What looks good on paper andpreviews doesn't always materialise in feature length. Story ispredictable and dialogue is lazy and in places cringe worthy. JoshHartnett is flat and unconvincing, Lucy Lui gives it a try but she'sjust annoying. The supporting cast were reliable but it was just wrongto hear substandard lines coming out of the mouths of likes of MorganFreeman and Ben Kingsley. It proves that it takes more than big names,a babe, action and violence to make an enjoyable movie. I wouldn'twaste the minutes of your life watching this. You could be doingsomething so much better.
John Smith (15 May 2013)
'Lucky Number Slevin' has to be one of the most interesting, wittyaction thrillers i saw lately. It has amazing twists, i didn't evencount how many there are but i can tell you there are numerous! Ialmost loved everything in this movie, it has clever story, humor,great acting and everything else it takes to make a good modernHollywood movie. They really brought a star cast for to be in thismovie, from Josh Harnett to Bruce Willis everybody did a good actingjob and you just cant have any complains there. Story can make you askfew questions here and there cause its kind of complicated buteverything is so nicely explained in the end, and everything just fitsinto its place wonderfully. I seriously never expected as good endingas i got from this movie, when facts and answers come rolling in youjust start appreciate this movie more and more and thats maybe the mainreason i gave it such a high rating.If you're in for some good 100 minutes fun, then go see 'Lucky NumberSlevin' as soon as possible, cause you're gonna love it ! 9.5/10
lay_zboy (14 May 2013)
Having read The Times review of the movie by Cosmo Landesman afterseeing the movie it made sense that he hated the film. One of the linesthat stuck in my head was 'it succeeded in every way revolver failed'or words to that effect. He was right in a lot of ways as it didn'tcontain much of the psychological thrilling (or lack of) that revolvertried to inject into the movie in massive doses. That fact to me gaveit a much better score as it kept the viewer intent on the story, andthus go you focused on the character development and the progression ofSlevin's journey through 'mister nice guy' to the evil vengefulperpetrator of the bosses deaths.I'm comparing it to Revolver because to me they were similar in manyways ranging from the sets to the plot and given a few allowances theywere basically built on the same premise. The reason i mention the setswas because i couldn't help but notice the wallpaper patterns beingmore or less the same but in different colours of tessellated patterns.There again bringing the relationship from Revolver because form what ican gather Guy Ritchie tried to make a strong statement of the mood ofthe film and the role of the characters in the movie by using colourand environment. Now i couldn't really gather at all what the relevanceof the colours and sets meant but i definitely think they added somesort of subliminal undertone to the movies mood which given the endresult of the movie worked very well.Of course not missing out the fact that the cast played a pivotal rolein the 'success' (yet to be decided though) of the finished product ofthe film and I'm pretty sure that with average actors cast instead ofthe ones you saw there would have been a whole other film to watch. Butit overall i think gave the viewer and without a doubt me a pleasure towatch as it had an intriguing plot, great cast, tasteful and graphicviolence and a good old twist to throw you off the scent, given thoughthe twist was if not a little blatant but ill let that go because therest of the film made up for it in abundance.Its definitely going in my Top 250 thats for sure!!!
granitaki (14 May 2013)
Wow.This movie was smart, a brilliant script with lots of dose of blackhumor and with lots of blood like Tarantino movies.If you liked wickerpack you will love this movie as for me its even better.I like thedirection of the film you can see some innovations and surely thedirector is experimenting more with the camera. Bruce Willis isexcellent as the hit-man and gives a class to the film.I don't thinkthat the film would be so good without him as he does make the perfecthit-man.Harnett is excellent, you can see that he is very talented andmanage to confuse as until the last minute.Lucy Liu is a great actressI would love to see her more and in this film she is adorable. Usuallyin such films the humor is inexistent but not in this one.Go and seeit, don't miss it!
gaiderdraco (07 May 2013)
First off, let me announce that even fans of this film agree that itcontains the worst interior decoration/wallpaper in the history of thecinema.Now, after the first 15 minutes of the film (entirely pointless becauseBruce Willis tells a man a story for 15 minutes and then kills him(WTF?!!!)), it becomes evident as to the tone and direction of thefilm. But after half of it goes by it becomes morbid and overlyviolent; a polar of it's first half. That's a no-no.The acting makes this to be a kitschy dark comedy but it eventuallytranspires into a bloody mess that was evident from the start(literally, I knew where it was going to end 20 minutes into it). Nosympathy for any of the characters is acquired because they do not askfor any. Also, the lack of a linear storytelling style destroys allhope of a "proper" catharsis. Or even a remotely satisfying ending.I hated almost every minute of this film and if you want to see a"real" revenge film watch South Korea's "Oldboy" or even QT's "KillBill Vol. 2".D.

This film is well worth heading into your nearest theater instead ofwaiting a few months for it on DVD.I went to a matinÃ©e Tuesday to an empty theater, well one other soulentered as the nearly endless reel of commercials and theater ads andupcoming trailers concluded.I was thoroughly please with the film and the "perfect" center seating.The soundtrack selections were nice and further added to this film.Good things come in 3s and 4s and slevins. Go see this film.Director Paul McGuigan did an excellent job following up his work on2004's "Wicker Park." Good to see writer Jason Smilovic has advanced tofilm following the TV series "Karen Sisco" My rating is actually 8.5/10though I choose not to round up until I am able to track down thesoundtrack.

In New York, when the unlucky newcomer Slevin arrives in the apartmentof his friend Nick Fisher for a leisure time, he is mistakenly taken asbeing his friend, who debts money to two powerful bosses of thecriminal world. He is pressed by The Boss to kill the gay son of TheRabbi, as a payback for the death of The Boss's son and pay off $33,000to The Rabbi. Nick's next door neighbor, Lindsay, who works in themorgue, tries to help Slevin. Meanwhile, a mysterious man is secretlyplotting to kill Slevin and Slevin is under constant surveillance bythe relentless Detective Brikowski.From the first five minutes of the film, about five people die butyou're not so sure. Mainly, you're not so sure of anything because thisfilm is trying to be clever, trying to run you into false conclusions.On top of that, the film goes in a fast pace, so you will have to keepup (I didn't, though).This film will keep your attention from top to bottom. If you're one ofthose people trying to look for a thriller that tries to keep youguessing until the end, you will like this movie. If you're amainstream audience member, then you should watch another movie.Some might say this film tries too hard to be clever like a "PulpFiction" kind of way and that it succumbs to a convoluted plot. Othersmight think this movie works the way it tries to be and the way itturned out. I loved this film, by the way. I love how the film playsout and tries to keep you guessing until the end.What I also liked on top of that are the performances by these greatactors and actress. Apart from Josh Hartnett and Bruce Willis, theperformance by Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley are really good. I alsoliked Lucy Liu's character as a fast talking, intelligent person.If you are looking for a film other than a film that spoon feeds you, #Slevin should be on the top of your list of intelligent and ingeniousthrillers. If you're not that smart to follow a fast plot, like I, youmight still end up liking it or you should just watch another movie.
(05 May 2013)
Consider this...You see a trailer for a film which clearly involves a high body count, tough talking and a potentially questionable storyline. Do you go and see it? Not to plant stereotypes, but the answer is "yes" if you're a man of a certain age. Unfortunately this is not what Lucky Number Slevin is about.I almost saw this film by accident - the trailer looked great, but I was worried that would be all there was to the film. Wrong! This fast-paced, intensive roller-coaster of a film has more twists and surprises than you know what to do with. But that's a good thing. The film starts with a gruesome murder, but quickly chops to clever cutting and pasting of a variety of scenes of black comedy, downright hilarity and impartial violence. I won't spoil the plot, but it's so hard to describe I think that'd be difficult anyway. This film doesn't have a twist in it's plot, rather the entire film is constructed of spins and contradictions that keep you guessing two paces behind the screenplay the whole time, right up until the thoroughly satisfying finale; throughout which you'll unavoidably catch yourself uttering "oh, so that's who..." many, many times.The thing that really sets this film alight is the way it's shot. Scenes rarely last more than a minute or so, which might sound annoying, but it helps move the pace of the film into something of a hurtling theme park ride. There is never a dull moment. For those who like their movie to have a lot more action than words, this flick caters for you too - some spectacular action scenes, though understated so as to always remain believable, help solidify the plot into making this a truly magnificent work of art.The film is also blessed with a particularly gifted, and highly suited, cast. Bruce Willis is especially memorable as the impeccable and thoroughly unnerving assassin Mr. Goodkat, and Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley are clearly in their element as the leading gangsters of the movie. Josh Hartnett shines too. Gone is his irritating schoolboy naiveness of megabucks films such as Pearl Harbour, and at last he seems to be in his element in this movie as the title character, Slevin.In all, well worth seeing, and, even though the film is quite short at 108 minutes, the pace and completeness of the story telling is more than adequate to make you feel like you've been in the realtime of the film itself. So, all that's left to do now is see it. Go on then!
Lee Scott (02 May 2013)
I pretty much went into this film with little by way of expectations Âthe reviews I remembered suggested that it wasn't all that good.However, I was pleasantly surprised by what I got. Sure, the all starcast were maybe on cruise control (although Hartnett and (particularly)Liu were moderately sparkling) and maybe the 'twist' was blatantlytelegraphed ahead, and maybe there was nothing new, and maybe theattempt to justify one of the murders is a little shaky (as theprotagonist could not have known what we learn Â it was a murder ofexpedience. Watch out for it), and maybe it wasn't half as clever as itthought it was, but sometimes a movie can just be a movie withoutpretensions to being art, and can be no less enjoyable for that. Thisis a decent little film which may not be anyone's favourite film of alltime but at least it isn't Speed 2. And that, of course, is a very goodthing.
Craig Somerville (02 May 2013)
The first 30 minutes of this movie I must admit I didn't care for thatmuch. The problem was the script is a little too quirky, it was justtrying to be far too clever. The characters come across as a littlesmarmy and I found myself starting to dislike most of them, if not all.The second act turns the movie around for me, it becomes a much betterfilm, good character development helps you begin to care about the leadin the movie played well by Josh Hartnett. Lucy Lui also turns in avery strong performance even tho a little under used. The mighty MorganFreeman and equally strong Ben Kingsley are also not used to their fullpotential but both bring in a credible effort.The final acts the most enjoyable part of the movie in my opinion, Youfind most of these types of movies usually struggle to tie all the loseends together at the end in a satisfying way. This film certainly doesnot, the way every thing is rounded off is very pleasing to watch evenif its slightly predictable.Overall a very enjoyable film. Terrible title which I think will put alot of people off going to see it, but well worth a viewing if yourlooking for something a wee bit different and you want to give thebrain a bit of a workout.
Lord_Crypto (30 April 2013)
This film took me by surprise. It is an excellent movie with acompelling story, wonderful acting, and brilliant direction. I have notseen this intense a movie since The Departed.Josh Hartnett is excellent in this film. One of the best performances Ihave seen him in. Sir Ben Kingsley is terrific as well. The characterhe portrays is outstanding. Lucy Lu seems somewhat annoying althoughthat can be said about her character more than herself. Morgan Freemanand Stanley Tucci deliver good performances but overall, I think BruceWillis came out on top. I will be using the nickname Goodkat for a longtime to come. His character is terrific and no-one but Willis couldplay that character the way Willis does. He has such a serious and laidback attitude for such a deadly assassin.The story sucks you in brilliantly. Just like The Departed, I wascompelled more and more to continue to watch. The story had graspedhold of me and I could not stop watching. Of course, more and morebecame revealed which built it up for a shocking turn of events (if youdid not see it coming). Don't try to guess ahead of the film, watch inunfold and enjoy where it is going.There is plenty of action in this film. Bruce Willis shows us again whyhe is a brilliant action star and why he is a natural born on-screenkiller. I also had a fond liking of the music in this film. The openingsketch is now one of my all time favorites.I really don't know how to describe this movie except as Outstanding.Paul McGuigan has created a masterpiece in my opinion. The only thing Ican suggest is watch it! You won't regret it!
moviefanatic7 (30 April 2013)
slick, fun, exciting, cool, and with a shocker ending, this movie doesit all. You have to see this movie, when you are done watching, youwill be left feeling like this is the funniest, coolest movie you'veseen. It has the elements of all great movies: suspense, mystery,comedy, its cool, and it has a shocker ending. what more could youwant. the cast is awesome and does a fantastic job.Josh hartnett plays a confused, average Joe who is mistaken for someoneelse. He is captured by two men and taken to one of the two most fearedcrime bosses (freeman). He is told to kill the other crime bosshomosexual son (kingsley).well, then he is captured by two other guysand taken to the other boss, and told to kill the crime boss he wastaken to before that. It is extremely funny all the way and yetinteresting to watch. Bruce Willis place a top notch assassin, but if itell you too much about his character, ill give the movie away, so iwon't. You should definitely take the time to see this movie.

(There are Spoilers) Clever elaborate but a bit complicated crimedrama/thriller that covers a span of over two decades which is the timeit took for everyone involved in a bloody massacre after a fixed race,at the Aqueduct Race Track in Queens NY, to come full circle. Back inthe fall of 1979 Max a degenerate gambler desperate for money gets theword from a race-track tipster and close friend of his Uncle Sol,abig-time New York horse player that the number seven horse in the tenthrace at Aqueduct that afternoon has been fixed, or secretly drugged, towin the race. Max then goes to his local bookie, Roth, to bet$20,000.00 on #7 on the nose. Leading all trough the stretch the numberseven horse suddenly collapses and dies just before he hit's the finishline! With Max now broke and Roth in hot water with the mob for takinghis bet both their lives on the line if they doesn't pay up.This is a story that a Mr. Goodkat tells a total stranger at the almostdeserted airport lounge before he, in what looks like to make a point,murders him. This sets up a chain of events that has the murdered mans,a petty gambler named Fisher, friend Slevin come to visit him afterhe's been forced out of his place by the city marshal. Slevin ismistaken for Fisher when he goes to his apartment and is roughed up bytwo hoods sent there by The Boss to pick up a $96,000.00 gambling debtthat the deceased Fisher owes him.Slevin not being able to convince The Boss that he isn't Fisher and atthe same time not having the money to pay the head gangster back isforced to make a deal with him. Slevin agrees to knock off the gay son,Yitzchok, of The Boss' chief rival for control of the crime syndicatein the city The Rabbi. Slevin is later apprehended by two of TheRabbi's hoods and brought to his mid-town Manhattan penthouse. therehe's told that not only is he in debt to The Boss for $96,000.00 butalso to him for another $33,000.00! This has the unlucky Selvin nowstuck between a rock and a hard place with his life not being worth aplug nickel!We keep seeing Goodkat, who turns out to be a top-notch hit-man forhire, pop up all throughout the movie not really knowing just what hisconnection is with The Boss and The Rabbi as well as the confused andbewildered Slevin. Everyone involved in this strange arraignment haveone thing in common that in the end ties all the looses ends in themovie together; the what's now mythical fixed tenth race at Aqueductsome twenty five years ago!A lot like "The Usual Suspects" the movie "Lucky Number Slevin" has astoryline that has a number of different characters from the policemobsters bookies and local horse players woven into it that takes awhile to unravel itself. Slevin at first comes across as an innocentand unlucky dupe, and victim of circumstances, who's caught up withthings that he has no control off. But as the movie reveals more andmore of it's secrets you somehow begin to realize that he's not theperson that you at first thought that he was.The connection between Slevin and the two hoodlums, The Boss & TheRabbi, is also not as accidental as it seems. You start to notice thathe's setting up the two for something but why and for what? Slevin alsohas a connection with the mysterious hit-man Goodkat who's beginning tolook more like the one that's possibly behind this entire grand andmurderous plan.The film stretches the creditability of it's story a lot by everythinggoing off almost without a hitch with the exception of Slevin's live-ingirlfriend Lindsey which in the end turned out to be very lucky forher. Unlike in the 1995 block-buster and highly popular "The UsualSubjects" the surprise ending, that took over 15 minutes, didn't leaveit's audience up in the air thinking that they were watching andlistening to a sloppy and made story, by the person telling it, just inorder to be shocked or confused by it. The surprise ending in "LuckyNumber Slevin" was a lot more believable and and at the same timeshocking then you would have expected it to be and has you going backto see the movie again to spot all the missed clues that you at firstoverlooked.

3.4 stars There are many things to love about this movie, especially its McG visual quality, its occasionally classic dialogue, and its basic premise. But the insipid and drawn-out love story is out of place and slows things down pointlessly; the plot gets a little too labyrinthine for its own good (and ours); and the overly frequent, much too graphic violence seems to delight in itself to no point but distaste. There are some fine lines and solid performances (Freeman, Willis, Kingsley), but the two stars/love interests are good not great, and the script, which starts out very crisply, gets a little too clever and folds in on itself for no special reason other than it can. Add up all the pluses and minuses and you get a film that is excellent in spots but not quite as a whole. Still, if you revel in glossily done-up revenge (and a very nice blu-ray transfer), and enjoy not knowing what's really happening while it all happens in very tight, attractive shots, this could be your baby.

Lucky Number Slevin is one of those movies that sat around my media room unopened for a few weeks before I finally decided to view it. Too bad. I watched a couple of clunkers prior to watching this really good movie.I'd not heard much about Lucky Number Slevin's plot other than what I read on the outside of the DVD case. And that little blurb on the DVD case really wasn't that compelling. That's good because, as it turns out, the movie really captures the viewer with a where-the-heck-is-this going plot.Lucky Number Slevin is full of action, comedy, high suspense and moves along at a pace that keeps you in your seat for the full run. It has tons of very good performances by very good actors and the dialogue is captivating.After showing up at his friend Nick's apartment, Slevin is mistaken for Nick and thrust into a war between two crime lords where he's asked to either kill or be killed. Not much choice for the desperate Slevin. And that's all I'd venture to offer for fear of spoiling this flick with some great surprises and twists. Be warned, indeed other reviews here and elsewhere mostly have unnecessary spoilers and that's a shame. It's also a shame that a movie as good as this didn't do as well in the box office simply because the producers needed to make the promos deliberately ambiguous so as not to reveal any of the twists and turns. Kudos to them, because this is a film that is much more fun to view without too much upfront plot knowledge.If a good, action-packed thriller is your cup of tea, then Lucky Number Slevin is right up your alley. Worth the purchase.
