When Slevin is first taken to see "The Boss", as he is exiting the building, someone is taking a picture of him. You see his reflection in the lens of the camera. The reflection should have been reversed, but it was not. See more »
This is a good, fast paced thriller... It would have been a really good thriller if it were not for the graphic scenes at the start of the movie, but once you get through that and a little bit of the confusion, this movie picks up very well...
I don't want to mention any thing about the story, I think there is enough mentioned already at the plot summary and that's all you need to know.
But trust me, do not believe people that say this is a bad movie... it is better than the many garbage movies that come out nowadays.. the acting and suspense is solid across the board. Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingsley are good, but the trump has to be Josh Harnett. He was good.
Like I said, the only bad point of this movie are the graphic scenes at the start.. If you approach this movie looking for entertainment, you will enjoy it.
