I really felt i needed to write this comment, because the one just before made me so angry. If the prior user had paid a little more attention to this film he would have noticed how intricate and brilliant the plot was. I don't want to give anything away of this film, but i strongly recommend this film to anyone. I would agree that you spend the first 20 minutes in confusion because of its fast paced plot, but by the end, your sympathies for individual characters are all over the place. ALl i can say is go and see it, and give it your full attention, then you wouldn't be on this <more>
website, saying "it doesn't make sense". Enjoy the film, 10/10
Slick, Fun and Very entertaining!!! 10 / 10 (by lprice0901)
This has to be one of the most enjoyable movies to come out of Hollywood for years. It wasn't any of this Arty-farty crap like the tragic "Revolver" .Its slick, very well acted and great direction. Sharp, funny dialogue that keeps you smiling think Guy Ritchie, could learn a few things from this movie . Morgan Freeman was great, along with Sir Ben Kingsley. It was great to see Josh Hartnet get a good interesting role for a change. Bruce Willis was, well, just another great performance from him!!. I wont give any thing away about the story.. just watch it and let the Film do the <more>
talking, Fans of the Gangster genre will love it!!.
I just saw the film and I must say this is the best movie of 2006.A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin Josh Hartnett with the job of killing The Rabbi's Ben Kingsley son.The Rabbi is The Boss's Morgan Freeman gangster rival while he owes The Rabbi $ 33000.He is also being pursued by GudKat Bruce Willis and he is also under watch by Detective Brikowski Stanley Tucci while helping him along is Lindsey Lucy Liu .Directed by Paul McGuigan whose previous movie Wicker Park was no where as good as this one.Josh Hartnett is brilliant in his role promising more movies for him.Bruce <more>
Willis as usual was brilliant so was Stanley Tucci.Ben Kingsley did his thing.Morgan Freeman for me was not up to the mark,he was just OK.Otherwise its a brilliant film.Fast paced,edgy,slick,stylish.You name it.A must see movie.
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 is going on, but you probably will never understand until all is explained in the brilliant climax ending of the film. I honestly can say that when you walk out of the theater you can say to whomever it is that you went to <more>
see this movie with that it was truly a great movie. Now I was lucky enough to have seen this at a screening back in December, and the entire theater started to applaud at the conclusion of the film. If you like mysteries definitely check this one out...and just by the slim chance that the reviews are mixed or not that great I will at least tell you from an avid movie lover to give this a chance and you will not regret it
Why people don't like this movie is beyond me... (by energyman-speed)
The subject says it all...This is a good, fast paced thriller... It would have been a really good thriller if it were not for the graphic scenes at the start of the movie, but once you get through that and a little bit of the confusion, this movie picks up very well...I don't want to mention any thing about the story, I think there is enough mentioned already at the plot summary and that's all you need to know.But trust me, do not believe people that say this is a bad movie... it is better than the many garbage movies that come out nowadays.. the acting and suspense is solid across <more>
the board. Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley are good, but the trump has to be Josh Harnett. He was good.Like I said, the only bad point of this movie are the graphic scenes at the start.. If you approach this movie looking for entertainment, you will enjoy it.
Lucky Number Slevin sees Josh Hartnett play Slevin in what appears to be a case of mistaken identity in a movie that easily skips between wry one liners and bloody violence that keeps you thinking until it's well-done conclusion.First off, the film looks great. It looks noir, complete with clever camera angles and smooth transitions, creating some very stylish cinematography and some brilliant scenes. The chess scene, which sees Slevin take on The Boss Freeman , pretty much sums this up, using smart camera angles and stylish transitions while drawing the audience in and further <more>
complicating the story. The violence is well done, and the contrast it creates reminiscent of last year's Sin City 2005 . The soundtrack also effectively contributes to the style, as it doesn't take over and you don't really notice it's there, but gets the job done.A film is however nothing without its cast, and Lucky Number Slevin is blessed with an amazing collection of actors and actresses. Hartnett pulls out a brilliant, if somewhat surprising performance, playing the wise-guy who cant keep his mouth shut who draws us in, before switching to the ruthless anti-hero who kills his way to the top at the film's conclusion. Morgan Freeman, The Boss, and Sir Ben Kingsley, The Rabbi, take to their roles perfectly, Freeman playing it with just the right amount of intelligence and cruelty, while Kingsley's role is more calculated and comic. Lucy Lui also does well as the girl-next-door/coroner, and her character moves the film along quickly with a touch of the film's more obvious humour. Bruce Willis' performance is probably the best out of the supporting cast. There doesn't seem to be much to it, but he dominates most of the scenes he's in except that one where he's got a mullet thanks to his understated cold-blooded killer acting mode.The plot keeps a hold of you throughout too, and prevents its audience getting lost as the conclusion explains it all for you, cleverly shifting from scene to scene as the pieces of the puzzle come together.There isn't really much more I can say. It looks great, the performances are great, the story is good, it's a bit violent, and it's still funny. I really enojyed it.
2006 Sundance Film Festival From the opening scene in Lucky Number Slevin, you will be straining to keep up. People are getting killed left and right, and it's never clear until the end of the movie how they are all connected. But you know it fits somehow and Scottish director Paul McGuigan Wicker Park manages to keep you guessing while firmly grabbing your attention and holding it with hardly a second to take a breath.In the film noir tradition, but with the intense and graphic violence of the Lock Stock and Layer Cake genre, Slevin is really a caper movie, and frankly reminded me more <more>
of The Sting than anything else. It dances nimbly from grisly stomach-churning action to clever and light-hearted banter. This could only be accomplished by a truly incredible cast, led by Josh Hartnett in an outstanding performance, great work by Lucy Liu, Bruce Willis doing his thing, and supported by the always excellent Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley. There's even a little time for Stanley Tucci.Liu plays Lindsay, the next-door-neighbor/natural sleuth/coroner/love interest who discovers Slevin in her neighbor Nick's apartment. They mystery that immediately engages her is what happened to Nick, who never shows up. However, plenty of people do show up, mistaking Slevin for Nick, and before long he is neck deep in murder contracts, called debts and warring gang factions. Hartnett plays the role to perfection. I've never seen him this good. He is both convincing and empathetic as a glib, fearless victim of mistaken identity, yet filled with confidence that he can make his plan work.This is a terrific film, assuming you can stomach the bloody violence. The pieces fit neatly together well, I have one bone to pick with the scriptwriter, but it would be revealing too much to share it . I highly recommend Lucky Number Slevin.
A welcome surprise, Slevin has appeared as if from nowhere. (by Youkilledmypine)
Bruce Willis, Sir Ben Kingsley, Morgan Freeman, Lucy Liu, Stanley Tucci and Josh Hartnett fill a cast line up every bit as impressive as say, Sin City. Leaving behind the sour taste of Wicker Park, Scottish McGuigan follows the likes of his own Gangster Number 1 with this incredibly cool, at times funny thriller that has somehow sneaked into the cinemas without much of a fuss. Supporting cast includes a very welcome cameo from a Jackie Brown star and a bunch of UK actors imitating their US counterpart's accents to perfection. The pairing of Sir Ben and Freeman alone is worth the price of <more>
admission, but this is Hartnett as Slevin 's film and perhaps it should not be too surprising that he carries it off effectively. In fact, none of the cast really put a foot wrong and even Lucy Liu is pretty adorable against type if you believe the all the press .Despite a reasonably confusing series of opening events, Slevin is essentially a straight forward, neat black comedy of errors mistaken identity for one . The dialogue is at times razor sharp and the action is well shot. The body count climbs steadily as the movie progresses at a cracking pace that never becomes dull. Slevin is thematically similar to a few other choice stories, but like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Slevin should be enjoyed more for the ride and the audience should try not to guess ahead of the plot and let it unfold naturally. There will still be some surprises appearing even for the most avid film fans but like so many thrillers Slevin could be ruined from word of mouth. If it weren't for the warm, familiar feel of similar films, this little gem would be rated higher. Unfairly dismissed by some as confusing, wrongly compared to the legendary Usual Suspects - it's a league apart from the mess that was Revolver and doesn't outstay a welcome.Oh, and Willis gets to call someone a 'f*** head'. Great stuff.
Impressively cast, well acted, funny and cleverly written dark comedy that is definitely worth a look. Keeping company with legends such as Morgan Freeman, Ben Kingsley and Bruce Willis who has been taking more and more great roles recently , Josh Hartnett takes the lead in the title role and plays it well. Freeman and Kingsley are as ever faultless and brilliant. Willis is fantastic in this kind of role. The dark, understated, non-action-blockbuster, big cast thrillers suit him well. Keep it up Bruce. To top off this top-notcher, Lucy Lui is looking gorgeous in her role as the love <more>
interest. I look forward to watching more films by Paul McGuigan, a director I'd previously been unaware of. Rent it as soon as you can.
