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

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.

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

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

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...

What style--and what a lack of substance.

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.

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

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.
