The Gentlemen also stars the likes of Charlie Hunnam, Michelle Dockery, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant, Jeremy Strong, and Eddie Marsan, among others.
While this movie most certainly won’t be lacking in graphic violence, in keeping with Guy Ritchie’s classic filmography, it looks like there will be plenty of lighthearted/humorous moments. I especially got a kick out of Grant’s Fletcher walking out of the bathroom, seeing a corpse is transported out and immediately making up an excuse to use the facilities again.
Yet the screenplay’s cinematic retelling of what has happened so far, presented via Fletcher’s scurrilously hyperbolic narration/pitch to Raymond (playing sharp-eyed script editor), This meta cinematic frame overtly highlights the artifice of what we are seeing while matching in narrative terms the sophistication of (some of) the players.
I like the better action movies - like Speed and the first two Die Hard films - but have felt no particular urgency to sample, say, the films of Steven Seagal or Jean-Claude Van Damme. And I'm fine with that. My foray into the "Mondo" shockumentaries began and ended with the seminal Mondo Cane. However, I've enjoyed other types of exploitation, from the naive antidrug film Reefer Madness to the various "Don't have sex!" scare fests. I usually enjoy horror movies, whatever their quality - there's more fun to be had with a bad horror movie than a bad comedy or a bad drama.
Like his first two films, “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” (1998) and “Snatch” (2000), “The Gentlemen” bursts with all of Mr. Ritchie’s favorite ingredients: gangsters, London pubs, voiceovers, swearing, guns, on-screen captions, suitcases full of money, fights, more swearing, tweed suits, gambling, cars, an ensemble of larger-than-life characters jostling for prominence—and more swearing.The key to making a “cool” movie is to have confidence; confidence in both style and substance. When a movie rings true, the audience can feel it.
The Gentlemen, from its opening sequence of mysterious bloodshed to its Bond-like title sequence, all the way to its near-Comedy of Errors climax, exudes that confidence. This is why Guy Ritchie, even after a couple of box office bombs or bizarre narrative sidetracks, still makes movies. The Gentlemen is confidence made celluloid.Also See: Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Hugh Grant, Eddie Marsan, Movie, Gentlemen, Confidence
