Awesome!
12 September 2011 | by daniel-829See all my reviews

I really liked "Lucky Number Slevin", so I thought I'd go watch this movie too. The bad reviews here troubled me some, but in the end it was well worth it.

The film has a great visual style and is well paced. There is only one subplot that I can think of that we could do without (that drug addict sister) but the rest was well done. The authors were well cast, their acting was good, and I think they played well together. It seemed like they had fun.

The action sequences were nice to look at, the robberies spectacular, lots of stuff gets blown up.

I suggest you watch this movie, you won't be disappointed. Some of you may look for more X and others will find it lacking in Y, but you can't say that this film is bad, that the actors are horrible or that the director doesn't know what he's doing.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and give it a 9, because it is up there with my personal favorites.
