    Jack MathewsNew York Daily News

    Lucky Number Slevin would be too clever for its own good if it weren't so ... darn clever. This violent flick is not in the same league as "The Sting," which has my vote for the cleverest winding road toward a happy ending in screenwriting history, but it contains nearly as deft a con job as that 1973 film. show more

    The film is stylish as hell with sharp dialogue, a tongue-in-cheek plot and visual and editing razzle-dazzle. show more
