Guy Ritchie’s excellent new crime flick recaptures the anarchic energy of his early films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, and it’s arguably his finest work to date.
The story revolves around a private exchange between the mysterious and cocky Fletcher (Hugh Grant) and the sophisticated Raymond (Charlie Hunnam). Fletcher spins a persuasive yarn about an American drug lord (Matthew McConaughey), who’s looking to sell his multi-billion dollar marijuana empire. The sale attracts interest from various criminals and sets off a chain of events that sees Ritchie’s trademark style kicked into overdrive. To reveal any more would spoil the fun. The Gentlemen is a violent, crass and masterfully orchestrated opera of criminal mischief from a veteran filmmaker back at the top of his game.
