Modern day take on Mean Streets

Lucky is a relatable character in modern day urban NYC. The opening was strong and even though Lucky is a criminal, you feel for him. The story starts to slow down about 15 minutes into it and then we meet Fernando and the pacing picks up and Lucky is now on a new path, one which I enjoyed watching unfold. There are enough twists that keep you engaged even though you might have guessed how things are going to turn out. However, the filmmaker surprised me with the ending. If you are used to happy ending mind numbing action then this may not be for you. For a slice of life gritty story give Lucky a shot.
