Review: Lucky Number Slevin

Sometimes, a trailer can send out a wrong signal. This one for instance, makes it out to be a light comedy. But in fact, while it is light in the beginning, it goes much deeper and darker, driven by an unfolding story. And luckily, the story is pretty solid. And so is the acting. The script however, has everyone saying these darn sharp smart lines, and it’s a bit too coincidental to have every single person that eloquent.
When you’re inside the movie, the pace seems to be constantly at the right speed, but somehow from the outside, it’s a bit too slow. But as I said, the story is the main attraction here, that makes up for a lot.7½.
