For much of its appeal, LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN relies on snappy dialogueHow does Lucky Number Slevin differ from the thousand or so

if that's your bag, then you may think of last year's KISS KISS, BANG

also just okay... the main trouble being that, in place of a heart, this
movie has a metronome. Recommended as a vehicle for movie-snacks, but
not much more.
"Tarantinoirs" that went straight to DVD post-Pulp Fiction? Aside
from Bruce Willis being in it, it doesn't look like something that
normally even gets released to theaters. Normally these things have
Jake Busey and Rachel Leigh Cook in them.
Director Paul McGuigan has proven he can put together good films that
aren't cookie cutter.
