10. Lucky Number Slevin
Original Release Date: April 7, 2006
Box Office Earnings: Lucky Number Slevin was one of those medium-sized budget movies that did okay at the box office. It made $56.3 million off a $27 million budget. Not a huge success, but not a massive flop either.

Critical Acclaim: Again, not a great rating, but not terrible either. The film sits at 51% at Rotten Tomatoes with the critical consensus being that it’s “trying too hard to be clever in a Pulp Fiction kind of way.” But what do critics know anyway! This movie is great!
About the Role: Bruce Willis plays a very serious hitman named Mr. Goodkat in the film. He’s the type of guy you don’t want to meet in a dark alley! For most of the movie, he’s this major external threat who lurks in the background as you try to figure out his motivation and Willis plays him with this easy confidence we’ve come to expect from the B-man!
Simply the Best: Not enough people appreciate this movie. It’s slick, fast-paced and a whole lot of fun. This is a movie that sees Morgan Freeman and Sir Ben Kingsley play rival crime lords for heaven’s sake! If that doesn’t sell you on it, I don’t know what will.
