Lucky Number Slevin

Last night, I rented and watched “Lucky Number Slevin” featuring an all-star cast with Bruce Willis, Josh Hartnett, Ben Kingsley, Morgan Freeman and Lucy Liu.

I’m going to quote IMDB’s plot outline for this one because it says it as it should be said without ruining the movie: A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin (Josh Hartnett) into 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.

Of course there’s a twist that I don’t want to ruin for you, but that I kind of started expecting from the beginning of the movie.

The movie is quite reminiscant of a Tarantino movie, although this one’s script is a bit lighter or looser.
Still this is a really good movie, pretty enjoyable, and I do recommend watching it.

My score for this movie would be: 7/10.
