The Gentlemen

The Gentlemen ★★★★

Guy Ritchie is back to the British crime action films that made him such a great director(Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) and that slick stylistic look that made those films so crisp along with a cast that comprised of Charlie Hunnam, Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Michelle Dockery, Hugh Grant and Henry Golding who all worked so well together thanks to that classic Guy Ritchie dialogue and humor injected into those intense scenes that really sets his films apart from other crime dramas.
The way the story is structured to show events from different perspectives was fun and the way characters are introduced into storylines and even the character's retelling the events to someone made the film fresh as it keeps things somewhat unpredictable as it introduces this unreliable narrator that is also something fun to watch unfold.
Henry Golding is definitely coming into his own as an actor and Colin Farrell steals every scene he's in but for my money Charlie Hunnam showed he's the one that has evolved as a character actor since his Sons Of Anarchy days and really leads this film(although it's an assemble film) and shares much of the film with Hugh Grant who really understands Ritchie wry humor and is able to deliver it so well.
While not his best crime caper film, Guy Ritchie is definitely back in form(helping wash away stinkers like Revolver and King Arthur) and is a damn good film.
