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

Product Description

A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin (Josh Hartnett) in the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most infamous 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well, Josh Hartnett CAN act... 6 Mar 2007
...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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy Viewing-A Condensed Guilty Pleasure!! 14 July 2006
This film has sadly not been well received by everyone, who seem to be under the impression that this is a poor man's Pulp Fiction or Guy Richie movie. It certainly is a gangster flick, but it is a light weight one, packed with humour and sassy one liners.

Pulp Fiction-in my opinion-was over hyped pretentious drivel, that thought itself nihilistic and hip-and true, so does this film, but at no point does it attempt to take itself seriously, like Tarintino movies.

There is not much point re-iterating the plot line, but it is just a film about mistaken identidy, that has more twists and turns than the motorway traffic during a football game. Some you can see a mile off, but my hint is-don't try and guess, just sit back...feet up...drink in hand...and watch, with a sigh of relief.

If you are one of those pop culture boffins then you may feel you have a right to be scathingly critical about this film. But the truth is that it is a mild mannered and creatively derranged gangster flick-not in the same vein as 'hardcore gangster' movies.

Josh Harrent is a bit of an iffy lead, but combined with such a strong cast, and the forever sexy Lucy Lui, there is not much to dislike.

If a gun was pressed against my head, i would admitt that it really is a three star film, but it so enjoyable, to hell with it. I am unashamedly giving this guilty pleasure four stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice one Bruce. And the rest. 18 July 2006
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie on Blu-Ray - but missing extras!!! 2 July 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The UK Blu-Ray version unfortunately does not have the nice extras which can be found on the German Blu-Ray or the US Blu-Ray, like "Deleted Scenes" and some interviews. I would especially like to see the deleted scenes in HD.

The movie itself is great, if you like Guy Ritchie movies for example.

5.0 out of 5 stars sit, quiet, watch, end-of. 2 Feb 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A goofy thriller, great fun! 8 Dec 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 12 Jan 2007
What a great film. I am a firm fan of Thrillers but having spent the last 3 years changing nappies I am out of touch with all recent releases and rented this from Amazon purely on the basis of the reviews I read on Amazon. And I wasn't disappointed. Great cast, great story and great ending. All this and Lucy Liu to boot. Come on, rent it/buy it, you won't regret it

A fantastic film, don't often review these--but it's brilliant. The structure is slightly lazy, but the performances and the story make up for it.
