Lucky Number Slevin
Wrong Time. Wrong Place. Wrong Number.
Slevin is mistakenly put in the middle of a personal war between the city’s biggest criminal bosses. Under constant watch, Slevin must try not to get killed by an infamous assassin and come up with an idea of how to get out of his current dilemma. A film with many twists and turns.
Lucky Number Slevin is a sort of black comedy that follows Slevin, who is taken into the midddle of a war - that is being prepared by the two top leaders of the New York Mafia - due to misidentification. He thus finds himself in a deadly mess and is forced to respond to the orders of the two leaders while being pursued by a mysterious hitman and by a strange detective.
Paul McGuigan's film starts as a very entertaining depiction of the unofrtunate life of a simple guy who gets in a criminal confusion due to a simple accident. The build up is pretty clever as the screenwriter provides us interesting dialogue and apparently interesting characters and it initially…
A film that I vaguely remember coming out, and the only reason I watched it was because I was looking for a film with a twist at the end. Luckily there's lists for just about everything on here! This film was directed by Paul McGuigan, and starred Josh Hartnett, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, and Ben Kingsley.
The plot.... well it's quite a twisty and turney affair, but to put it in simple words - a man called Slevin, due to a case of mistaken identity, lands himself in the middle of a war between two aging gang bosses. If you want to know more then you'll have to watch it as I don't really want to give too much away.…
Lately I have been spending so much time moving my website to another web provider that I have not been able to secure any new movies to watch. So I have had to re-watch DVDs from my own collection. Tonight I picked Lucky Number Slevin to re-watch. This is one of my favorite Bruce Willis movies.
This is one fun puzzle to put together. Gangsters, assassins, dirty cops, an innocent by-stander and a sexy Lucy Liu make up the pieces of the puzzle. To explain the movie anymore would take away some of the joy of the movie. I do have some quick non-spoiler thoughts about the movie.
1. Bruce is a badass in this movie....or as he says...."A worldclass…
Not to be confused with the vastly superior film 'Lucky Guzzles Semen'.
Film 9 of The June Challenge
"No small matter. Requires a lot of planning. Involves a lot of people. People connected only by the slightest of events. Like whispers in the night, in that place that never forgets, even when those people do."
First of all, this stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Sir Ben Kingsley. Therefore, it's pretty much guaranteed to be awesome. And it is.
This is one of those films where you're not quite sure of what's happening throughout the majority of the running time. Seriously, here's a 100% accurate summary of the first hour or so:
"Right then, this guy's talking to that guy about the other guy now this guy's talking about the other guy…
This movie has such a convoluted plot that Steven Hawking got a headache after he saw it. It's clever and intricate and even manages to squeeze a half-decent performance out of Josh Hartnett.
Mistaken identities, reclusive mob-bosses, corrupt cops, Kansas City Shuffles and a lovely little turn from Lucy Liu as of all things a coroner, this has almost everything. Gandhi, Red from Shawshank and John McClane conspire to confuse the life out of us with more red herrings than an episode of Inspector Morse. A story of revenge with intrigue in spades and a sharp and witty script that leads you down a spiraling rabbit-hole, Paul McGuigan has made something quite unique.
Not a good movie, but totally absorbing. Cliche, cheesy, stupid and also beautiful, classy, funny, a mash of styles and influences with a superb and (at the time) against-type cast.
Winner of the ballsiest title award. And nice music.
Kill my ass.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A fun thriller with a lot of fun twist turns but they kind of over do it in the end.
It plays within its limited set, but it plays very well
I never expected Lucky Number Slevin to be this much fun. But hey, the cast is fun right? Kingsley, Willis, Lui, Freeman and even Harnett was fun. Paul McGuigan really surprised me here. It was non stop entertaining, the plot twist wasn't anything special but they tried. I loved the scene where Kingsley and Freeman were tied up.
O yeah! And Bruce Willis with a Moustache? EPIC.
This is it. This is my all time, number one favourite film. Has been for several years now. Why? Because when people would ask me what my all time favourite film was I always wanted to choose something not many people had heard of so I could introduce them to something new.
But why this out of the hundreds of other films I've seen that fall by the wayside? Mainly the ending. The first time I watched this that reveal floored me. It was all I could do to not ruin it for people who hadn't seen it. So I started taking it over to friend's houses for movie nights just so I could talk about it with someone.
