Lucky Number Slevin

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Trying too hard to be clever in a Pulp Fiction kind of way, this film succumbs to a convoluted plot, overly stylized characters, and dizzying set design.

Lucky Number Slevin | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Brian Tallerico UGO McGuigan has such a stylish eye that, even if you never quite care what's happening, you'll always be visually entertained. Mar 24, 2007 Full Review Lucky Number Slevin | Rotten Tomatoes (2) J. R. Jones Chicago Reader With its diabolical ending, this is the movie equivalent of a crossword puzzle: fun, clever, and disposable. Dec 18, 2006 Full Review Lucky Number Slevin | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Ed Gonzalez Slant Magazine A gaseous movie experience gets a solid DVD treatment. Sep 6, 2006 Full Review Lucky Number Slevin | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …well worth a look for fans of McGuigan, Hartnett and particular those with a penchant for Bruce Willis in action mode… Rated: 4/5 Sep 19, 2023 Full Review Lucky Number Slevin | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Micheal Compton Bowling Green Daily News A bloody romp full of rich characters and performances. Writer Jason Smilovic and director Paul McGuigan have created a great homage to film noir. Rated: A- Nov 20, 2019 Full Review Lucky Number Slevin | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Joshua Starnes ComingSoon.net Lucky Number Slevin is a very clever film, probably too clever for its own good.

Audience Member interesting dialogues and a little less interesting plot that becomes a little bizarre by the middle of the movie.The end becomes predictable when the plot does not seem to provide any other arcs and threads. Not anything to get crazy about. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/09/24 Full Review Stephanie G Movie is well made and a must see. An all star cast that does not disappoint. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/06/24 Full Review Nashville I Lucky Number Slevin is a fascinating mystery. The fact this isn't raved about by critics and currently a cult favorite is maddeningly confusing to me.The title probably puts people off, but give this movie 15 minutes and you'll see it's actually an unfamiliar type of mystery that has not been overdone by 100's of movies in the past. Slevin's got a very original story with an outstanding story structure. It should be noted as well the twist ending is brilliant, makes perfect sense, and would never be spotted early. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/15/24 Full Review Wallace L Great movie. It keeps you hooked the whole way through. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/14/24 Full Review Jerod S Maybe it's a little over-cooked, but Slevin is an enjoyable long-game revenge thriller. Hartnett plays the part with ease and Willis is in his prime. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/14/24 Full Review K. E One of my all time favorite movies. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Read all reviews
