(This is The Gentlemen film review, which is a new original film from Guy Ritchie)

Gangsters, marijuana dealers and perhaps a more sophisticated way of dealing drugs have been part of movie premises for a long time to come. So, we have Guy Ritchie who decided to shoot a film with that exact cliché genre in mind, and then from there The Gentlemen appears onto our silver screens.

This is quite a star studded film whom the director Guy Ritchie manages to convince to take parts in this such as Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant. Well, we are not here to read this paragraph ain’t it mate? Let’s get down then to The Gentlemen film review below!

 

Premise

When a cannabis baron intends to sell of his business and retires, little does he expect that many parties want to have a slice of his big pie, by hook or by crook. And thus the battle begins between them but only one will emerge victorious! Though, what would be the price of such a bloody victory?

The Gentlemen Film Review

Premise

The story is actually pretty cliché, but the execution is that of a genius storytelling. I am amazed at how Guy Ritchie could create a compelling, exciting and intriguing film out of such common storyline. No matter how I see it, it takes True skills and talents to be able to dish out a Masterpiece from a pile of normal ingredients (ideas).

Best of all the story is told through different perspectives in a third party format. It is essentially a parody of itself, as the film is shown through a ‘script’ by one of the characters that is exactly what this film is all about. The comedies, fun factor and ingenius form of storytelling are just what I expect from Guy Ritchie, but here, he manages to impress me again with his artpiece.

I will say that his directing makes this film stands out among the many films for these first 3 months, even among some of the same genre. The premise itself is simple, but is filled with enough interesting twists and turns that in the end it becomes original. It’s rare that I actually enjoy a film so much that I would want to leave the cinema for the toilet.

 

Pacing/VFX

Pacing is just perfect, things happen fast and will hook you up within the first 10 minute. Also, the way things flow is smooth, full of unexpected twists that eventually brings you back to the original point that will make you go ‘Woah!’ at its developments.

Though there are some VFXs here, they are used minimally yet in very interesting ways that bring out the unique trademark of the film. I especially like the way they are used subtly and appropriately and not directly In-Your-Face like many other Hollywood offerings.

Characters

Here’s the main part that really sets this film apart from the rest. First of all, this film has a load of famous stars with great acting histories. In fact, all of them take on roles that are unique and yet is fitting. It’s rare for to see a film where the side characters have their own stories to tell, as well as deeply developed to make them a proper character that does not feel like an extra.

None of the characters show here are shallow in anyway. All of them have important parts to play and also a particular time to shine in the film. Each of them has particular traits that differentiates them from others, such as the Matthew(Jeremy Strong) who speaks in a sort of quiet intellectual way, and Fletcher(Hugh Grant) who speaks in a more comedic sissy way.

And of course the boxers and dancers in the a Music Video shown in the front half of the film, they are pretty epic in their own rights. And I felt the Britishness of the whole characters with their own thick accents. So in a sense, in this department, they get a full mark from me!

Also one remarkable thing is, they manage to cast a whole lot cast of different ethnicities into this film without it feeling forced or weird. Kudos to that, Guy Ritchie!

Soundtrack

Soundtrack is just used nicely and …but let’s skip that because the Music Video shot in the Marijuana Plantation by a bunch of boxers shown in this film is just helluva EPIC! And for that, this deserve a 90/100 for me!

Guy Ritchie is back in his Top Form!
Now this is what a Masterpiece should be like, when made using a cliché premise but with a full star studded cast that is then mixed with the ingenius talent from Guy Ritchie. Watch this and be WOWED!
