Here is a strange and unique movie about a man named Slevin who's down on his luck and caught in unbelievably bad circumstances between two warring mob bosses; The Boss and The Rabbi, who have offices that are literally across the street from each other. Slevin's case is a case of mistaken identity; apparently he owes both of these bosses money, and one of them wants him to do a job for him, all while he's being tracked by the bosses' henchmen AND a mysterious assassin.
I was surprised by how well the DVD worked on my computer; it played seemlessly, which is surprising considering that the DVD was loose when I first opened it and there were multiple shallow scratches on it. But hey, if it works on my computer then it's no problem, since I do most of my movie-watching on the computer anyway. Other than that, the movie arrived in good time and the case arrived in good condition.
I recommend the movie for anyone looking for something with witty dialogue, a somewhat confusing plot that makes enough sense for the average viewer to understand, and unique characters and performances. I particularly liked Josh Hartnett's and Bruce Willis's performances (although I like Bruce Willis, or how I like to call him, 'The Willis' in everything I've seen him in). The whole movie at first seems like a bunch of random things were smacked together, but it all comes together with a satisfying conclusion in the end.
Overall, **** out of *****
"Why do they call him 'The Fairy'?"
"Because he's a fairy."
"What... he-he has wings and sparkles and...?"
