Product Description

Thriller in which a case of mistaken identity lands Slevin (Josh Hartnett) in the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses, The Rabbi (Ben Kingsley) and The Boss (Morgan Freeman). Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski (Stanley Tucci) as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat (Bruce Willis) and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.

From Amazon.co.uk

How boring it is to label a movie Tarantino-esque anymore. The thing is, when it comes to an offering like Lucky Number Slevin, the shoe fits, and the result is anything but boring. Gruesome killings, arid wit, self-reflexive pop culture references, an A-list cast, and style-heavy production values abound, which gives the proceedings an epoxy bond that seals the Q.T. homage factor. Josh Hartnett--who spends a lot of buffed-up time with his shirt off--is Slevin Kelevra, a hapless fellow visiting his New York friend Nick. But Nick has disappeared, which sets off a mistaken-identity thrill ride when two goons grab Slevin (he's in Nick's apartment so he must be Nick) and take him to their crime lord boss, the Boss (Morgan Freeman). The Boss doesn't care about Slevin's wrong-man protests; he just wants the $96,000 Nick owes him. In one of many offers he can't refuse, Slevin has to agree to murder the son of the Boss's felonious arch rival, the Rabbi (Ben Kingsley) or take the bullet himself. But Slevin turns out to be no ordinary patsy. Thrown into the ingeniously designed production, clever plot twists, and academic nods to Bond, Hitchcock, and obscure old cartoons are Lucy Liu as a sexy coroner, Stanley Tucci as an obsessed cop, and Bruce Willis as a wily hit man with his finger in many pots. With so much visual and narrative trickery, there's almost too much to absorb in one viewing of this convoluted jigsaw puzzle of revenge and entertaining mayhem. Lucky Number Slevin isn't quite up to par with similarly brainy thrillers like Memento and The Usual Suspects, but the prospect of seeing it again in order to get your bearings is just as appealing.--Ted Fry

...though you can be forgiven for thinking he was relying on his good looks to build himself a career after seeing some of his other films. I don't know how "Lucky Number Slevin" did in the box office, but if there was justice in the world it should have been a hit. As it is... I sincerely recommend it as a rental.

The dizzying interiors notwithstanding, the plot is slick, compelling, and insufficiently shallow to be dismissable. (And if you're a fan of 70's decor, then the interiors will be dazzling rather than as described.) The acting is uniformly convincing -- nothing less than you can expect from such an impressive cast, I suppose, though disappointments have been known -- and the story twists and turns without falling off the rails of its own ingenuity. The violence can be somewhat startling, but if you're in the mood for a thinking thriller, rent this. Or buy it, if you're a fan of any of the cast. It's a pretty good film to include in their CV's, and the plot is complex enough to warrant repeat viewing.

Listen to noone, take no advice, don't take preconceptions or past reviews or opinions. Get it, sit down, don't talk, don't move, don't expect or discuss. Watch and learn. This is a movie for movie lovers, this is not a chick flick, Brit flick, rom-com, thriller or comedy. It writes and re-writes its genre at each turn, you flinch in disgust 2 seconds from a laugh out loud. You think you may have heard a line before but before you identify what heads-up it is and to what film classic - you hear another line you never thought would make in to celluloid. Not a ham part in the house, not a dull moment. Twists are just that, they are not 'Sixth Sense' in impact but then again until that movie came along neither was any other movie. 10/10 in acting, cinematography, style and substance. This is one of only 2 movies in my life I would have entered into blind. Genius, simple genius.

Format: DVD
A very enjoyable film with an excellent and pitch-perfect cast, which reminded me of the season 3 Farscape episode "Scratch 'N Sniff". It maintains a crazy energy throughout, mainly because much of the added narration is conveyed in a succession of quick and oddball images. There is a neat little twist at the end and even if it didn't come as a total surprise, the 'reveal' sequence carries with it a number of smaller twists which you won't have seen coming. What is more the story is strong enough that it isn't spoilt by knowing the ending, and is just as enjoyable on repeat viewing. The set design and wardrobe are almost characters in their own right, very bright and comic-booky during the first part of the film but changing tone for the final part, perfectly complementing the story.

Format: DVD
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 interest. Put it on your list.

Following on from the good things already said by others:

It's one of those flicks where nothing is as it seems, and I'm definitely going to give it a second viewing, because in the end I realized how everything was just so nicely wrapped up and the tangled web untangled itself in that second most pure of motivating emotions: REVENGE (the first one being 'Love' of course). You think 'The Bride' in Kill Bill is p-oed? Kiddo, you ain't seen nothing yet. Just about everybody in LNS dies by bullets, projected from silenced semi-automatics--not swords--but it works just as well. Lots of brains and gore spattering across the place, plus a neat twist at the end in a tale of a gazillion tangles and twists and quick non-linear time warps to explain what the hell was actually going on. And things just ain't what they seem. Nothing ever is.

Revenge in LNS was not a dish eaten completely cold. In the final act, when the worst offender of them all gets his brains spattered across the inside of his car, the purity of the emotion and its raw darkness--and at the same time it's utter inevitability and sheer rightness--is beautifully portrayed by an actor, for whom I have acquired a new respect; for he evidences both, a subtle comic timing that needs to be seen to be believed, as well as a capacity to look like an almost-evil implacable dispenser of justice that had been far too long in coming. Very nicely done. Highly recommended for those of my disposition--though those of more tender sensibilities might find the blood and gore somewhat off-putting.

Format: DVD
Difficult to avoid Tarantino references in any review of this film - not only does it show the same kind of style, it even has some actors QT used in Jackie Brown (Robert Forster) and Kill Bill (Lucy Liu), not to mention Bruce Willis from Pulp Fiction of course. Given the prelude of a family assassination back in 1979 over a corrupt betting ring, it wasn't too hard to figure out that Slevin (Josh Hartnett) wasn't the innocent wrong-place/wrong time victim he makes himself out to be when he's abducted by gangsters and that the character played by Bruce Willis has a big connection with what went down all those years ago. The characterisations aren't quite Tarantino fare but the storyline and overall production design definitely is, and I for one didn't mind it at all. Ultimately it's a tale of revenge and with a liking for the old eye-for-an-eye deliverance. Personally I liked it, although I thought Morgan Freeman was slightly miscast in the role of the big bad gangsta boss. Hartnett impressed more than any other though, as he really showed two different characters in each half of the film: one the nice and innocent good guy, the other a cool and deadly assassin.
