Of Note: Josh Hartnett (Slevin) lived with Director Paul McGuigan and his girlfriend in New York while the script was being written. McGuigan said that he thought of having Slevin wear a towel a lot of the time because he saw Hartnett in one so often. Moreso it added a vulnerable quality to Slevin.

This is a great movie, it is like the Kansas City Shuffle you look left and it goes right. I liked the way that you never really know what is going on. It is rewarding to watch a movie and as the plot develops so does your understaning of what is going on. This has an all star cast the delivers on all levels. Lucy Liu is so hot, wish I had a neighbor like that. I like the pace of the movie as well as the action. I could have done without Josh Hartnett spending a good hunk of the movie in nothing but a towel but the ladies should like that. I would encourage anybody who had not watched this movie to do so as soon as possible, you will be glad you did.
Ha, the Kansas City Shuffle! (you have to see the movie). Good movie, good plot, great acting, but you never know quite what's going on till the end. Sometimes movies like this end up bothering a guy but this one was good and threw me for a good loop! Hit men, mobsters, cops, and Lucy Liu's quirky character blend into this movie to give you a great time. I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would and I would encourage anyone to see it.
