Before I had a long break in movie watching, one of my biggest complains about movies was regarding the stories. It seemed back then that there were three of four main story lines, which all films were aligned along.Â That was very sad and boring.Â Now that I got back to movie watching, I am glad to report that there are many films with original stories.Â Twists, surprises, and more twists. I have troubles guessing how the movie will end every other time.Â So, it’s either the movies got a little better, or I got so much worse.
I watched “Lucky Number Slevin“, which I expected to be yet another action, considering there were pictures of Bruce Willis with a gun all over the place.Â I thought that it would also probably be funny, since Bruce Willis was pictured in a hat.Â And that’s about as much as I expected from the film.
But I was wrong.Â It was a really twisted story.Â With lots of action.Â Lots of really great photography.Â And fast paced.Â Bruce Willis was accompanied by Josh Hartnett, Lucy Liu, Morgan Freeman, and Ben Kingsley.Â There are some really great background characters too.
This film provides good, albeit not family safe,Â entertainment, with plenty of good humor and details to look for while watching it for the second, third, or fourth time.Â A must see, and a recommend DVD buy.Â 8 out of 10.
