April 7, 2006
It's self-consciously clever in a not-very-clever way, a puzzle only its creator finds puzzling. It's fun to listen to, not to follow or watch.

It's the worst kind of con: It tells us it's a con, so we don't even have the consolation of being led down the garden path. The rug of reality is jerked out from under us in the opening scenes, and before long the floor is being dismantled.

April 6, 2006
Another drearily sadistic and pointless crime thriller from the excessively in-demand Scottish technician Paul McGuigan.
August 30, 2009
Elaborately hollow tough-guy arabesque
April 5, 2006
What's ultimately missing from Slevin is not only mystery and humor, but any trace of inventiveness to counteract the overriding triteness of its Pulp Fiction-ish shenanigans.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

It's not that hyper-violent movies are axiomatically a bad thing, it's just that this particular example is so laden with shootings that it becomes somehow tedious.
April 6, 2006
Slevin feels like a lackluster writing sample that somehow bumbled its way into a feature film production.
Full Review | Original Score: D
April 6, 2006
Forgets the richness of these characters and concentrates on unveiling a series of cheap twists.
July 14, 2007
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 7, 2006
Not possesing any of the flair or subtle characterization of Tarantino, Lucky Number Slevin is a frustrating and grim piece of hollow trickery.

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.

it all feels a bit too forced

April 5, 2006
Slick and stylized, it's a convoluted crime plot that's stretched to pretentious extremes.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
April 6, 2006
... a fun but bloodless pastiche, at least where it counts.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
April 7, 2006
This good-natured noir is terrifically amusing and likable for the first hour.

April 7, 2006
The fist half hour of this film is so promising that I'm almost willing to ignore the mess that follows. Almost.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 9, 2006
A twisty and stylish but disposable thriller that leads nowhere with its inflated plot.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
September 21, 2006
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.

The convoluted ain't-I-clever script by Jason Smilovic has a cheat ending that makes you want to do a little torturing yourself.
