Mini-Review: Lucky Number Slevin

Bruce Willis is still a seller. Paired with Josh Hartnett in this twist–filled crime movie, they are an exciting pair caught between rival crime groups trying to get the best of each other.

A possible explanation why The Matrix Revolutions turned out to be the biggest disappointment in recent memory. But throw away your worries, the good guys will save the day.
