A seeming young American everyman with preternatural calm has a series of unlucky events that result in him becoming a pawn in a game between two vicious crime lords. Along the way he meets a nice young woman. But everything is definitely not what it seems. The actors, some of the big names, are very good, albeit in not very demanding roles. The plot generally makes sense (that is, I'm willing to suspend my disbelief and accept what is happening as possible in this make-believe world) with one glaring exception (it's the last twist).
The problems given the genre. First and foremost, too much dialogue that is not nearly clever enough. Second, there is too much explanation of the plot and pseudo plots. These problems probably arise because the plot is too complicated. For those who don't like blood and violence, don't watch it. Don't even think about it.
Both films have exactly the same way of storytelling way. Moving from present and passed. Just like one of Christopher Nolan's movie <Following><Memento><The Pristage> or Bryan Singer's <Usual Suspect>.
When I saw Wicker Park, I was really surprised how he arranded the story and at the end everything fit to the complete ending. I had to order the dvd at once after watching the moive at the theater.
But this one, because I've watched his other work already, it was like dejavu, even cliche for me. The director wanted to show how clever he is.
Now there are two kinds of cliche.
One is to make audience friendly and make them comfortable. After all, they want to watch movies to see that is quite familier to them.
The other is a bad cliche which is a boring one. Like making the audiene feel like watching the same movie twice. Why paying money to watch same movie again?
This movie was later.
At the beginning, Josh Hartnett stays at his friend's apartment and his friend happens to owe money from both part-two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Now both sides are having a fight and they both wants Josh because they think he is the one (Actually he he not)
The BOSS first kidnapps him and tells him to kill someone instead of paying back his money.
Josh has no alternate way but to do so.
There is another killer who is played by Bruce Willis who is hired by both sides, The Rabbi and The Boss. Who is kind of mystery.
After the 3/5 of the movie, everything slowly begins to be revealed.
In the past Bruce Willis was hired from Rabbi and had to kill Josh's family. But instead of killing the kid Josh, he raised him.
Now that he grown up, he teams up with Josh.
Now all of a sudden Josh kidnaps The Rabbi and The Boss and kills them both. Revenge done.
The story seems pretty simple but the director/ writer mixed up all the story and slowly, I mean very slowly reveals them.
At the end they all fit together completly. Nothing is unsolved. and the audiences are leaving with happy face.
That's why this moive has such a high score at imdb.
Sadly the director never had a good score at the boxoffice nor made a lot of movies. The mostly made TV movies and worked for hand full of films only.
But I still remember his good film Wicker Park.
This movie is not a masterpiece like USUAL SUSPECT. But it is worth watching.
Since the plot of Lucky Number Slevin is nearly the whole show I won't reveal anything else but this is extremely enjoyable if you like self-consciously clever crime films with snappy dialogue. Josh Hartnett and Lucy Lui turn out to be really good at delivering that dialogue--Lui's rapid-fire patter seems to be at least partly inspired by Rosalind Russell from His Girl Friday and the normally stern actress has never been looser or more likable than she is here.
The older vets--Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Ben Kingsley and Stanley Tucci are all solid, although their characters are little more than chess pieces in the intricate plotting of Jason Smilovic's screenplay. Director Paul McGuigan previously made another twisty film starring Josh Hartnett called Wicker Park that didn't really work--director McGuigan later admitted he didn't know what was going on in the script and if the director doesn't where does that leave the audience? Lucky Number Slevin partly feels like McGuigan and Hartnett trying to redeem themselves after the the failure of Wicker Park--if that's the case then mission accomplished.
Amazon's HD streaming print looks great.
The Boss: I'm The Boss.
Slevin: I thought he was The Boss.
The Boss: Why? Do we look alike? So, Mr Fisher, you were gonna tell me something?
Slevin: I don't know, you brought me here.
The Boss: Yes I did. Back when you thought I was him.
Slevin: I didn't think you were him, I thought he was you. And I was trying to tell him - you that they picked up the wrong guy.
The Boss: The wrong guy for what?
Slevin: Whatever it is you wanna see me about.
The Boss: Do you know what I wanna see you about?
The Boss: Then how do you know I got the wrong guy?
Slevin: Because I'm not...
The Boss: Maybe I want to give you $96,000. In that case do I still have the wrong guy?
Slevin: Do you wanna give me $96,000?
The Boss: No, do you wanna give me $96,000?
Slevin: No, should I?
The Boss: I don't know, should you?
Slevin: I don't know, should I?
The Boss: [pause] Long story short.
Slevin: I think we're well past that point.
The Boss: I bet it was that mouth that got you that nose.
Slevin: Okay, I'm under the impression that you're under the impression that I owe you $96,000...?
