What style--and what a lack of substance.

It's the hipster you try to ignore at the party, knowing he's got one good story but will keep talking until you agree he's cooler and smarter than you.

Everything in it -- every confusion, every line of unspeakable dialogue, every red herring, every camera setup -- has been borrowed from some movie you've seen before.

Just when you are ready to dismiss the flick as a blood-soaked semi-black comedy that isn't funny enough, the plot takes a fascinating twist that ups the ante considerably.

Screenwriting 101 professors likely would hand Lucky Number Slevin back to scripter Jason Smilovic with the helpful critique "Too much Tarantino" scribbled in red ink across the top of the cover sheet.

A thriller with as many twists and turns as a mountain roadway but occasional low clouds that obscure the journey.

Competently made, but we've seen it before and the message is morally muddy

Technically perfect but wholly uninteresting...

They say it's better to be lucky than good, but this nickel-and-dime Quentin Tarantino imitation is neither.

Here's a decent "whodunit"-type of gritty, grownups-only flick that those who enjoy the likes of "Sin City" and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" won't want to miss.

It finally all makes sense after a fashion, and I think and hope that you will be entertained by all the narrative legerdemain.

Enjoyable enough, but its major distinction is more its too calculated oddness than anything else.

I have to say this for 'Lucky Number Slevin': It accomplishes nothing with extraordinary aplomb.

...range-challenged Josh Hartnett mutters and smiles his way through what could have been a complicated, intriguing, albeit cold-bloodedly violent, thriller.

It's a silly movie, but in a good way...

A miserable mess that plays like a third-rate David Mamet, with dialog as overcooked as English vegetables.

I think it was entertaining as heck.

A bloodied ledger and brutal gangster on the prowl opens this clever and stylish film and we are queued that whatever the outcome, this is going to be a thriller with a fresh visual approach.
Eugene Novikov
Film Blather
April 10, 2006
A starkly beautiful film, the direction not merely elevating the plot but transcending it to the point where it is hardly even important. I could sit and watch this movie on a 24-hour loop.
