Lucky Number Slevin is about consequences and repercussions. In the 1970s a man named Max (Scott Gibson) made a bad bet and the story is about how that played out for his son. In the present time Slevin (Josh Hartnett) gets caught in the middle of things which involves two gangsters The Boss (Morgan Freeman) and The Rabbi (Ben Kingsley), plus Mr. Goodkat (Bruce Willis).

There’s some very sly writing involved because it’s not clear how the events in the past and present are connected exactly until halfway through the film. The first part is committed to laying out how Slevin is seemingly in a hopeless situation and then everything is revealed in the end. Hartnett does a good job playing the innocent and Kingsley shines as the better bad guy of the two especially when he describes how he can be a crook and a rabbi at the same time. It’s a nice story of revenge.
