What a beauty, intriguing plot which only meshes into place right at the very end, good suspense all the way through and the moral of the story.....Don't get caught up in " The Kansas City Shuffle"
OMG! What a fantastic movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Full of great actors acting brilliantly - especially Josh Hartnett and the dose of humour he brings to the plot.
Another one I have left too long to review. A nice dose of Bruce Willis's charming acting style. A good movie from what I remember.
If you can put up with the blood and violence (which fits into the story very well), this is an awesome film. Excellent acting from top stars and a BANG of an ending. I agree with Mel - needs to be watched at least twice.
It is a dialogue movie with bad dialogue. It does not have much action or suspense. The camera angles through the walls were annoying. And it has a pretty farfetched plot.
great twists need to be watched at least twice three times four ...
Great movie with a stellar cast and a really good twist at the end.
Bruce Willis has not made a bad movie, and this one is no exception, The camera work is a little too dark for my taste, but it does fit the movie I suppose, plenty of action
As long as your not expecting huge plot twists you should enjoy it :)
'Wrong man' was the 'Wrong' movie for me. Bleak and violent with a hard to fathom plot until the surprise ending was revealed. All of which may be a recommendation for some people but I just found myself wishing it was over sooner. The stars are for plot uniqueness and filmic style.
classic story,great twists.
young boy grows up and gets the gangsters.
top action story.
Lots of twists and surprises. Well acted, keeps you guessing, quite violent, but clever humor and an ending that actually makes sense. Will definitely recommend this one.
A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin into the middle of a war being plotted by two of the city's most rival crime bosses: The Rabbi and The Boss. Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them before they get him.This movie is a snoozefest.
We enjoyed this movie so much that we watched it three times plus all the commentaries. I loved the look of it, the comic book feel, the cast, the plot twists, all amazing.
So many twists in this movie and with plenty of muffled and confusing dialogue I just didn't like it.
Tried watching it a second time but no go.
A simple story which is narrated in a different style. However I would love to watch a movie which does not require concentration. A movie is supposed to be a stress buster which is supposed to be watched casually. This movie required concentration.
An average movie but a good one to watch.
This movie has an issue with it's genre, Horrific murders first up, followed by the makings of a plot, followed by the makings of a spoof...and ended up a nothing movie
Lots of people being killed, lots of twists and turns that keep you guessing to the very end. Great popcorn movie. Just sit back enjoy. Or do as I did and annoy partner guessing why Hartnett's character keeps getting in trouble.
DVD received was unreadable.
Lotsa twists here but some are obvious..plot is ok..acting is good ..but something missing here..no..oomph I'd say..a 7/10 for good effort..
did I watch the same movie as the rest of the reviewers? for me it was definitely the WRONG movie. Dialogue too trite for words. Most intersting part was wondering if and when the towel was gonna fall off!!
A modern day gangster movie which reflects the beginnings of gangs in New York. Jews and Blacks are the two gangs and are reflected in their respective bosses. The film is full of little twists and you should find that by the end, nothing was what it seemed to be. All the little apparent irrelevancies have a meaning and impact the final outcome. More enjoyable than I expected and it has a fair bit of sudden, casual violence.
I didn't guess the plot until the very end. Held me on my seat but awfully violent. Does this mean we are becoming more desensitised to violence?
Very clever keeps you alert to what is happening and a nice twist in the tail.
very slow would not recomend
Excellent above average movie excellent cast
Wow, really great movie. Kept us intrigued from start to finish.
Fantastic, Bruce Willis was awesome in the Jackal and this is no exception. A bit hard to follow at first but the cards fall into place and the movie is time well spent. Enjoy!
Witty crime flick: smooth dialogue, outstanding cast and a great soundtrack too - the title theme in particular is memorable. Perfect balance of humour and pace for me without going too far, it's an easy watch and one I'll re-watch again and again. The deleted scenes give some insight into the script sacrifices made to get that balance, very interesting!
Powerful, compelling and worth watching. solid storyline that keeps you glued right to the end
who knew Josh Hartnett has this in him! GREAT FILM! great cast. good plot twists - keeps you involved from the first scene. 10/10 - best movie i've seen for ages
Excellent plot, acting, characters ..... everything you ever wanted in a good film. Interesting to watch the making of extra ... obviously a group effort.
I was surprised by this movie. Great cast of actors which is why I rented this movie, but what a great movie, I would put this up there with The Usual Suspects as one of the best crime movies I have seen, like The Usual Suspects it has a great twist at the end that you wont see coming.
Revenge belongs to an higher power, right? Wrong! At least, wrong it is in this tale.
It's thought reprehensible to wallow in the urgent need to avenge a dreadful wrong, but, somehow, the awful extent of the primary wrong here, heightens the viewer's lust for payback and the painstaking stealth with which the screen play is crafted, only sweetens the kicker.
Sensational cast. Even Lucy Liu is tolerable. Very well worth the admission.
Very well done movie, it keeps you guessing all the way through. Great how it all comes together, Bruce is always in good movies. Nick or the supposed Nick plays a great supporting role.
easily in my top 10 movies. great movie and one not to miss
Fantastic. Confusing in the first half - stick with it - the plot twists are great. Josh Hartnett, Ben Kingsley
a movie with a slight twist at the end
Full of action. Loved it,and the actors were pretty cool as well. Must admit keeps you guessing and I thought that it was great how little Henry paid back to the people who deserved it. I love Bruce Willis,he knows how to play the parts really well. Big thumbs up.
What a top flick! The movies ties a lot of twists together that don't seem all that related to begin with. The cast works really well together, each contributing their own essence in a way that comes complimenting the others. Its a very clever plot that has you paying fairly close attention. Bruce Willis obviously loves this kind of movie with "The Sixth Sense" in a similar vein. Morgan Freeman always the pro. Lucy Lui, cute and energetic. Josh Hartnett believable as the innocent. Blends together perfectly!
Stellar cast, great story and terrific dialogue. Josh Hartnett is solid again, Ben Kingsley is superb (although he has got to stop dieing the same way - House of Sand and Fog) and Bruce Willis is typical Bruce Willis.
Excellent! Really good movie. It is good from the start to the end, no boring parts at all. Totally not an ending you would expect.....
This is a good film. You will like this. It is about a case of mistaken identity, or is it? Josh Hartnett plays a hapless guy who is sucked into a vortex of crime and murder after going to visit a friend. Hartnett is an underrated actor who shines here. The film also stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley, need i say more? It's good, really good. To say too much is to spoil it, get it. you wont be disappointed.
Have always liked Bruce Willis, he's one of my favourite actors and now I can add Josh Harttnett to my list. Although, I did wonder how he managed to keep that flimsy towel on even whilst he was being roughed up. Enjoyable film and worth a look
Could not watch the entire movie, had a poor plot with bad acting. Don't bother.
This film just crackles along... smart (and sparse) dialogue, crisp acting - rather like a Mickey Spillane novel come to life (... or not, considering the number of corpses)
Very voilent - more than is necessary - would have been even better without the violence. Not worth 4 stars though.
Loved this movie. Talk about a twist. Josh Hartnett was unreal in it. Awesome!!!
Excellent - Funny, Witty and exiting.
Great cast, Freeman, Willis, Kingsley - Hartnett does well, as well. The plot is suitably twisted, but ultimately the love interest bits all but ruin the ending. Enjoy!!!
Great movie loved the way it twisted all revealed in the end .Loved it !
I watched 3 times, great story to it.
Geat movie good acting well worth watching.
seriously good movie, takes concentration at the start but the twists are worth it. enjoy!
Acting, Concept, set-design and camera work was good however I found the ending a bit disappointing. Plot moved too slowly in places.
Lucky Number Slevin is a damn good movie that doesn't follow the formula. Watch it!
this had so many twist in it it keeped guessing l really enjoyed
Very entertaining, but requires your full attention to fully enjoy.
An interesting crime movie with the twist being better than the lead performances - Josh Hartnet bland and Bruce Willis looks bored. Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley are cast well as villains but don't have too much work to do.
A reasonable way to kill 2 hours.
Sorry but it didn't hold my interest. I didn't watch it through.
not at all bad. Quite different than expected.
Not as serious as "The Usual Suspects" but arguably better acting and no Stephen Baldwin.
Lucy Lui and Bruce Willis are always good, but there are a huge number of "that guy" actors in this darkly funny revenge film.
One of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Expect the unexpected!
Outstanding movie and it keeps you glued for the whole movie. A rarity for movies these days
Hard to describe this movie. It's one of those ...wasn't he working for them ?.....I thought that.....wasn't that...who went where.....??? But it spends most of its time explaining itself so that by the end of it, even dummies like me know exactly what went on. Bruce Willis is a hitman and, not wanting to give anything away, he is employed by opposing sides of a gangland war but the man in the middle of it all is a case of mistaken identity. Great Entertainment.
Fantastic! Fast paced, interesting, twists and turns right until the end, when you discover it's totally not what you think. Well cast and great acting by all. Definitely one of Josh Hartnett's better films. Lucy Liu plays a great character, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Sir Ben Kingsley outstanding as usual. Highly recommended.
Very entertaining action / thriller. Great cast with Bruce Willis fantastic as usual. Well worth watching if your into movies like snatch and smoking guns etc.
an amazing array of twists and turns this has alot of violence but in context dont watch this if you are not willing to give it all your attention GREAT movie
Without the terrific cast would have been pretty average, but they together made it a great movie! Can't understand why the deleted scenes were; they really add to it IMO - well worth a look after watching the movie.
Excellent plot full of twists and turns
Great!! Struggled a bit at first trying to figure what was going on but once the story started to come together it was full on entertainment. Fast paced and full of classic wit, this movie had all the right ingredients. Reminded me a bit of the old favourite "The Sting". Highly recommended.
wasnt what i was expecting
didnt like it.but it has a good ending i will give it that
this is a very interesting movie but you need to pay attention and it is worth watching twice to pick up all the relevant bits
Great movie. Well cast and the twist will blow your mind.
Great film, must pay very careful attention to the story, twists & turns abound!
Excellent movie with an interesting twist.
Great popcorn thriller. Very entertaining.
Another Bruce Willis expressionless roles. Freeman,Marnett and Liu gave fine performances. All that gratituous bloodletting doesn't do it for me.
This one really gets you thinking. It's a crime movie with a twist! The greats - Morgan Freeman, Ben Kingsley (sorry Sir Ben Kingsley) and Bruce Willis are more than ably supported by Josh Hartnett & Lucy Lui. Definitely worth a look.
why is everyone rating it so high, very poor, bad plot and BAD acting, do not bother
A very well done story - takes you until the end to make complete sense of it, but Bruce Willis and the rest of the cast pull it off very well - highly recommended
Loved it. Good storyline. Keeps you thinking about what is really going on.
Absolutely thrilling to the end! Josh Hartnett is well cast.
Confusing story line, lots of killing.
These movies where the major stars have to share the limelight always work out well. Great cast.
Boy ! -what a complicated mystery this is. Action all the way. If you can follow the twists & turns, it will keep you glued to the screen.. a surprise ending too !
this movie was a bit weird but it was good and had you guessing until the end.
Exciting to the last minute.
Top notch movie with great acting all around.
Definitely a man's movie plenty of violence but watchable
Although I found the Movie to be a little slow it had a fairly good story to it.
This is one of the best films i've seen in a long time.
One of the greatest movie!!
I thought that the movie was pretty good but not what i thought it would be
Be warned that appearances deceive. This movie started off being dull and uninteresting with only a hint of intrigue. Bear with it, I promise it gets a lot better. By the end you can hardly believe it was the same movie.
excelent movie. well played out and very enjoyable.
When the movie started, I thought "Oh no, another bad movie"..but within next ten minutes or so, it started to be really funny and as the plot goes, thrilling.
There are enough twists and turns in this movie to keep any one interested through out the entire film. The final twist i must admit i did not see coming until the last ten minutes. The decor of the hotels is rather bizzare!! All in all a good flick.
One of the most incredibly interesting movies I have ever seen with a fantastic storyline and an incredible lot of twists as well. A magnificent cast who all portray their roles with the total professionalism that one would expect from such a great cast. I can only say - don't miss it, it's brilliant. Congratulations to the story writer,producer, director and everyone involved in keeping me rivetted to my seat from start to finish.
a great story with an even greater twist to it well worth seing
This is an incredible crime movie. I would say that its one of the top 10 movies of recent times and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
This is a great movie, for all those people who like a solid story about crime. Also fans of Lock Stock and Snatch will enjoy this movie. The name doesn't seem to work for me, i prefer the original and US title 'Lucky # Slevin
