Critic Review - Christianity Today

Tarantino's films work because there is usually some moral code at work, however fallen it might be. By comparison, Slevin is an unsettling exercise in amorality.

Why is it people make so many references to Tarantino, as if he's "done it before". This movie is nothing like Tarantino, nor does it try to be.

I agree with you Kyle.

Every film reviewer who reviews a stylistic film with clever dialogue immediately pans it if they don't consider it better than Tarrantino.

This film isn't trying to be Tarrantino at all. QT certainly had his number of influences not forget.

I cannot understand anyone's gripe with this film. It's smart, clever, smooth, there's no dead air, the lead man is cool, it's a good plotline.

I actually laugh out loud at the script. It's James Bond how it should be. Awesome movie.

Tarantino isn't the only way to measure a film and I don't enjoy him, but I do enjoy this film, I own it even.
Why is revenge for a violent death your parents didn't deserve immoral?

You are a silly man. Quentin Tarantino did not invent gritty action movies you know. And while we're on the subject, I'd like to point out how terribly OVERRATED that man is! I mean, did you even see his terrible lighting in Resevoire Dogs?! TERRIBLE! Consistent lighting is a must Quentin, even my videos for beginning film class had more consistent lighting than that... and my videos sucked!

I didn't notice any inconsistencies in the lighting... must have been too busy laughing my ass off at Tarantino's genius script. :p

Plus, it WAS his first movie. If the lighting was inconsistent, he got better later on.

"some moral code at work" bahahahahahaha
You mean like in Kill Bill? Inglorious Basterds? I know that was after your comment. But what a load of bs.
