The follow is a review of the 2006 film "Lucky Number Slevin"

Here is a brief synopsis of the "plot" (taken from movies.aol.com):

A case of mistaken identity lands Slevin (Josh Hartnett) into the middle of a war being plotted by two of New York City's rival crime bosses: The Rabbi (Ben Kingsley) and The Boss (Morgan Freeman). Slevin is under constant surveillance by relentless Detective Brikowski (Stanley Tucci) as well as the infamous assassin Goodkat (Bruce Willis) and finds himself having to hatch his own ingenious plot to get them...before they get him.

Ohh...where to begin with this convoluted piece of shit. First of all even if you can get passed the fact that more or less everything that occurs in the film is completely coincidental and simply preposterous at the end its still a shitty simple action film. Add on to this the fact that the "bad guys" are portrayed by two amazing actors (Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley) makes this even worse. Many times I say about certain films: "Well the film wasn't good but at least the actors were." In this case it would be better if the actors were less known to me because watching such good and distinguished in such shitty roles is just simply painful. A few funny, smart lines but mostly crap.
