View Full Version : Lucky number Slevin

After watching this film yesterday, I can say it isnt worth watching at the cinema. Wait for it on DvD.
With an excellent cast and interesting story line this film lacked depth, with the plot quickly revealing itself.
After a new gang wanted to make a name for itself in the late 70's, a man and wife were murdered - when the man couldnt repay his debt. Fortunately, their child (slevin) survives and takes it upon himself to avenge their deaths. Manipulating 2 rival New York gangs, leads him to his ultimate goal - payback.
I give it a 7/10. looks interesting, but not worth your money at the cinema. Maybe an 8/10 for DvD version.

just watched this on DVD
The main problem is that at times this is quite a nasty film in an scorcese goodfellas sort of way, at other times its light hearted humourous crime twisty turney like Ocean's 11. The 2 dont mix that well and you can see the revenge plot coming a mile off and its difficult to care
Ben Kingsley is great. Bruce Willis is alright too however Morgan Freeman is badly miscast as a head of organised criminal gang - hes a nice guy not a uthless murderer. This doesnt help the story.
Its watchable but not memorable. I like the gang bosses watching each other from their towers. The script is good but doesnt save it 5/10
Good Start. Boring Middle. Clever Ending. 6/10
I liked it. It wasn't anything particularly outsatnding in terms of plot. But it twisted and kept interest. Loved the one liners. the concept was interesting enough. Bruce Willis played one of his best roles in years (although he didn't really do all that much). I'll give it 7.5/10 Worth seeing, and it beats the hell out of the usual summer blockbuster affairs.
4/10 watched this last night and while it wasn't to badly written the best actress was Lucy Lu. I have to disagree with NCA Willis was shit. I mean he played a role he has played over and over again.
While not badly written it was to obvious and to badly acted to make it a good film.
