Lucky Number Slevin - 4

This film is a thriller. That means that you will get information at the end of the film that will change your view of the story up to that point. Is is worth trying to figure out? Not really. Basically the main character, Slevin (Josh Hartnett), gets caught up with warring mob families (headed oddly by Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley). All of this revolves around a story that happened in the past where a family was murdered for betting on the wrong horse. The film is mostly action and some witty dialogue, but has enough cliches as to not distinguish itself as a good film. Some critics pegged this as a film noir, don't believe them, if this were noir it might be a better film.
