Lucky Number Slevin

Lucky Number Slevin is one of those films that looks slick as snails but has a worse setup than a stunt in Jackass. In an effort to look and and feel cool, it negates that one thing that makes a cool film, which is a great plot line with some snazzy unforeseen twist(s) and witty dialogue. However, within the first twenty minutes, the plot and twist was obvious to anyone with half a brain, leaving the slickness of the film to pick up the slack but without one noteable line of speech by any of the great range of actors, by the time the "revelation" is revealed at the end of the film, you just want let out a sigh and wonder why Morgan Freeman, Ben Kingsly, Bruce Willis and Lucy Liu have put their names to such trash.

I would give this movie 2 turkey twizzlers out of 5

And yet you still gave the movie 2 out of 5? How so? It sounds like the worst piece of crap since we went to see Sixth Sense in the cinema!

Punter: "What's the twist at the end?"
Me: "Watch the first 5 minutes."

Twists are far too overused in films these days. So what if it has an obvious trail of dialogue and plot? I don't care if I can see the ending coming a mile off, so long as that mile is filled with good plot, good acting and the like.

I gave it 2 out of 5 because it was watchable to the end even though you knew exactly what was going to happen. The slick facade kept up the pace of the film which was just enough to keep you watching and no more.
