5.0 out of 5 stars So much more than you think it is April 20, 2006
I wasn't exactly sure about the whole idea and concept behind this movie as I walked into it tonight, since all it took was a fifteen second glimpse of a TV trailer and the ambiguous claim about a case of mistaken identity that uncoiled my interest into full blown curiosity.

I was floored and blown away by the movie and at the same time really proud of trusting my gut feeling about good flicks. I was thrown off many times by the black humor since I knew it wasn't a comedy as Slevin (Josh Hartnett) had what seemed like a really unlucky chain of events that have spiraled him into a big, hot mess. As he arrives in New York to meet up with an old school friend after being fired from work, cheated on by his girlfriend back home and mugged down the block, all he finds is an empty apartment and no sign of Nick, his old friend. He proceeds to shower and dress as unexpectedly the next door neighbor, Lucy Liu, drops by to borrow some sugar. They become quick friends with matching quirky personalities and from that point on things go from laughingly bad to worse.

Slevin is mistaken for Nick, who apparently owes money to two rivaling mafia type bosses who hate each other and he gets pulled into their personal war. This movie was so full of twists and turns that I forgot to eat my snacks and almost left my purse at the theater at the end. I recommend not reading too much about it and skipping long trailers because this beauty can be given away on a silver platter and to miss that feeling in the theater of realizing the true story would be a sin. I was really impressed by the actors in this movie and I think Josh who looks like a teen-movie type of an actor did a brilliant job!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring body bags and a mop April 12, 2006
Bodies accumulate quickly in LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN - at least eight in the first 15 minutes, not including the horse. Then, I lost count.

As background to "now", the film flashes back a couple of decades to a fateful horse race. A young husband and father, privy to a tip about a horse doped for extra speed, takes out a foolishly big loan from a bookie and bets it all. His horse comes from behind, but then fails to finish in dramatic fashion. With no way for the loser to pay back the loan, the local Mob makes an example by brutally killing him, his wife, and his young son. Flash forward to "now".

Slevin (Josh Hartnett) arrives in New York to visit his friend Nick (Sam Jaeger). On his way to the latter's apartment, Slevin is mugged, his nose broken, and his wallet stolen. Arriving at Nick's place, Slevin finds it deserted and the door open, but decides to stay the night. The next day, Slevin is kidnapped, garbed only in a bath towel, from the apartment by two thugs and forced to meet with The Boss (Morgan Freeman) in his luxurious penthouse. The Boss believes Slevin to be Nick and claims the latter owes him $96K, but gives Slevin the option of eliminating the debt by killing the son of his archrival in crime, The Rabbi (Ben Kingsley), who lives in an identical penthouse immediately across the street. Unable to prove his real identity - remember the stolen wallet - Slevin has no choice but to agree to terms before returning to the apartment. Then, as if the day wasn't going bad enough, two of The Rabbi's goons kidnap Slevin and force him to meet with their employer, who, unaware of Slevin's shotgun arrangement with The Boss, claims that Nick owes him $32K. Both mobsters give Slevin three days to meet his obligation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucky Number Slevin (HD DVD) Disk Review May 15, 2007
Format:HD DVD
After watching this movie over cable in HD I was glad to see it released on HD DVD.

Warning: Possible Spoiler here! This is basically a payback story that has many twists in it that reminds me of a Hitchcock movie. Some mysteries are only good to watch once but this one has so much going on to try and trick you that multiple viewings are recommended.

The picture quality was outstanding with bright colors and deep blacks that was visably better than cable HD on my Hitachi 50" rear projection LCD as was the Dolby Digital Plus audio. No problems with playback or menu access either on my HD-A1 with 2.0 firmware. Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucky Number Slevin, a testament to HD DVD May 12, 2007
Format:HD DVD|Verified Purchase
This title is a testament to the absolute beauty and superior quality of HD DVD. The richness of the formats color and depth of contrast lend itself perfectly to the story told in this film. With a flawless transfer, you can enjoy the film without distraction as if you were in your own private theater. As for the film, it is one of the most amazing films as of late. Reminiscent of The Usual Suspects in it's twists and turns. With the redemptive qualities of films such as Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. I don't want to say too much about the film because it may just spoil it if you haven't yet seen it. Trust me when I say, don't rent this movie, buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW... August 13, 2006
Format:DVD
I didn't see this coming. I was expecting some criminal movie a la Guy Ritchie but what I got was a whole lot different. At first it seemed like some average criminal movie: well, Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley as two gang bosses, Bruce Willis as a hitman, Stanley Tucci as a cop, Lucy Liu as a hot autopsist and goofy Josh Hartnett in between - it was fun. Especially with funny lines like: "Why do everyone call him rabbi?" - "Because he's a rabbi..."

It was closer to the end when I realized the film was not what it seemed to be. And to be more precise - it was not what it pretended to seem to be. Just like with Paul McGuigan's last flick "Wicker Park". Remember watching it and then gasping at one point: "Wow"? Same thing happened to me here and I must say McGuigan is a hell of a director. He is pulling the wool over our eyes during the whole movie just to come up with such a twist in the end we will not know what to say.

And even when it looks like an ordinary story which we saw a lot already, it looks good. Because of the fine acting, sharp directing, brilliant screen-play with smart and ironic dialogs... You don't get a feeling the movie is played out and second hand. It's indeed fresh, it tastes and smells delicious. It's light and it melts in your mouth.

In a way after I exhaled that "Wow" after finished watching the first thought that came to my mind was: "It's the second "Usual Suspects". I wouldn't actually insist it is so but when you watch it you'll get me. By the way if I were you I wouldn't read anything about "Lucky Number Slevin" before watching, no reviews or annotations. I wouldn't ask friends who saw it about it. Don't try to learn anything about this film beforehand even if those are some insignificant details. And stop reading this also (I'm shutting up at last) - go and watch!
