Lucky Number Slevin is a very clever film, probably too clever for its own good.

Elaborately hollow tough-guy arabesque

McGuigan has such a stylish eye that, even if you never quite care what's happening, you'll always be visually entertained.

With its diabolical ending, this is the movie equivalent of a crossword puzzle: fun, clever, and disposable.

Essentially a crime noir thriller with a twist, Paul McGuigan's film is showy and sharp, whose witty dialogue is delivered with a shrug

One of the underappreciated gems of the 2006 movie season.

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.

Lucky Number Slevin moves along nicely, and it's easy to get caught up in all that style. But style and cheap tricks are two different things.

A gaseous movie experience gets a solid DVD treatment.

In the end, Lucky Number Slevin is like that guy you knew in high school who seemed cool and interesting until he opened his mouth.

Only Lucy Liu's insanely perky neighbour emerges with any real credit.

... those of us who take our cup of comedy black, with no sugar, will savor it.

Time thinking "Slevin" must have been some kind of typo: 110 minutes.

Paul McGuigan directs with the skill of a light-fingered juggler.

It shrinks your perception of what movies can do.

There are a few genuine surprises, but not enough to cover over the fact that the biggest reveal of all was plainly obvious in the first 10 minutes.

May 6, 2006 can't help but wonder if the movie would've worked better had some of the twists been revealed at the outset...

Lucky Number Slevin starts off as entertaining original but comes up empty at the end.
