"Lucky Number Slevin" by Yojimbo

Josh Hartnett plays Slevin, a man in the wrong place at the wrong time when he is caught up in a war between two rival gangsters. Clearly inspired by the post modern thrillers of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, Lucky Number Slevin is a smart and sassy if slightly self-conscious revenge story. Hartnett's character is maybe a bit too much of a smug smart ass for the first half of the film, but as things darkened I liked it a whole lot more. It looks great and although it lacks the subtlety of The Usual Suspects and the like, the quality performances and clever dialogue keeps things interesting. The weak link was probably Lucy Liu's character who's responsible for one of the more implausible moments of the story but some nice chemistry with her co-star papers over the resulting plot ...

Lucky Number Slevin review

Goodkat (Bruce Willis), who tells the story of Max and the Kansas City Shuffle and then kills the man he was talking to in an airport. Slevin Kelevra (Josh Hartnett) is staying in his friend Nick Fisher's place and is abducted by 2 black henchmen. He falls for a neighbor Lindsey (Lucy Liu) and is tasked by "the Boss" (Morgan Freeman) to kill the son of "The Rabbi" (Sir Ben Kingsley). Smith (Bruce Willis) is seen in various killings. Some good lines: The Rabbi - "People are never happy with what they have. They want what they had. Or what others have." Mr. Goodkat - "But sometimes there's more to life than just livin'."

The formula of mistaken identity and hit-man have been presented several times. Only difference here is the direction and lack of an interesting soundtrack to kee...

Wanna bet on the Ponies at #15

Lucky Number Slevin is a 2006 crime thriller film written by Jason Smilovic, directed by Paul McGuigan and starring Morgan Freeman, Ben Kingsley, Stanley Tucci, Lucy Liu, Josh Hartnett and Bruce Willis. Set in New York City, the plot focuses on the paths of Slevin Kelevra (Hartnett), Lindsey (Liu), two feuding mafia bosses known as The Boss (Freeman) and The Rabbi (Kingsley), and a mysterious hitman known as Mr. Goodkat (Willis).If you like movies that make you think you will enjoy this film. Josh Hartnett stars as "Slevin" a guy who is down on his luck and gets mistaken for someone else, or does he...from the moment that the mob bosses get a hold of Slevin the movie turns into one big guessing game. If you are like me you will find yourself thinking and trying to figure out what exactly ...
