A thief with a unique code of professional ethics is double-crossed by his crew and left for dead. Assuming a new disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, he looks to hijack the score of the crew's latest heist.
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.
I felt like a Bag was over my head the whole movie...
Its physically and emotionally draining to see one of the greatest actors of all time succumb himself to such a bad streak of films this year... thats right, I'm talking about Robert De Niro. the Goodfella... the Raging Bull... Don Corleone...Al Capone... the list is endless. I can't wrap my mind around why he does such horrible films these days like The Bag Man, The Big Wedding, Last Vegas(Hangover on Viagra), Killing Season,Grudge Match. Little Fockers..etc. The man is 70 now and has only so many years left before he retires. Obviously people will always remember him by the earlier films, but I think he's more than capable of doing one last memorable film. As far as the Bag Man goes, the story was sloppy, acting was mediocre and thats because the script was bad not the actors, cinematography was a lot of dark lighting, and the music had that ominous CSI random guitar solo feel to it. I only ate half my popcorn and threw the rest away, I got too sick of looking at who and what was on the screen. I wish all of them actually wore bags on there heads, that might have saved the film. 3/10. sorry Robbie.
