Lucky Number Sleven (Satisfactory), was today's escape from bad weather. It's rated R and it is a very violent movie. Thank goodness it doesn't take itself seriously or I would have had to leave shortly after the movie started!
Both Roger Ebert and the NY Times gave it a bad review because they didn't like knowing from the beginning that the plot was a con. They are right; you do know right from the start that the whole story won't be told until the end, and what you see along the way cannot be believed.
The only thing that makes this movie worth watching, even a little bit, is the acting. Morgan Freeman, Lucy Liu, Ben Kingsly (with a Bronx accent), Josh Hartnett, Stanley Tucci, Bruce Willis... all fun to watch.
Don't make a special trip to the theater for it, but if you want to get out of the house on a rainy day, it beats shopping at the mall.
