Lucky Number Slevin

I wasn't digging this goofy crime movie with a stupid title for the first 45 minutes. It was confusing, characters did stupid things for no reason whatsoever and it's overly clever sense of humor seemed a bit forced. Then the revelations began to turn up and I slowly began to get into the story and in the end I was pleasantly surprised by the way the events unfolded. The story of mistaken identity taken to the breaking point with a great cast featuring Josh Hartnett, Lucy Liu, Morgan Freeman, Ben Kingsley and Bruce Willis features twist upon twist upon twist (that I won't give away here) and it's a great little thrill ride that generates laughs on top of gasps. Surprisingly entertaining!

3.5 out of 5
