Plot / Synopsis
It all starts with a horse. Then an innocent man is mistaken for someone who owes money to a bookie. And when Mr. Goodkat (Bruce Willis), the most notorious assassin around, blows into town, everyone knows something big is about to burst. But what? Paul McGuigan's delectable murder mystery, Lucky Number Slevin, is a fun, fast-paced thoroughbred of a thriller that is a sheer delight to track. Try and crack it, if you can!

Slevin (Josh Hartnett) comes to New York to visit his friend Nick, but finds his apartment empty. "I think Nick is in trouble," says Lindsey (Lucy Liu), his neighbor. This becomes clear to Slevin when he opens the door expecting to see cute little Lindsey and gets a henchman's knuckles instead. The boss (Morgan Freeman, and later Ben Kingsley) wants to see Nick, and Slevin can't prove he's not Nick because his pocket got picked that morning. Soon he finds himself in the middle of a high-profile murder being plotted by one of New York's biggest crime bosses. Exactly what kind of trouble is Nick in?

McGuigan has crafted a densely stylish film noir from Jason Smilovic's swift, tight, and furious script. Lucky Number Slevin's sly humor leaves you smiling as you contemplate the beauty of a Kansas City shuffle.
