Rugged crime cinema doused in juicy British comedy. Ritchie's brand is easy to recognize, even though commercial influences have watered it down over the years. If you love a good British crime flick, Ritchie has you covered.

Revolver is slick, stylistically impressive and atmospherically cohesive. It's a small departure from his earlier films, but that's actually a welcome change of scenery.

Ritchie perfected his signature style in this film. Lots of visual trickery, a solid soundtrack, spiffy dialogues, a convoluted plot and a big cast full of colorful characters.

The good stuff

For any Ritchie fan out there, RocknRolla is surely a film worth watching, as long as you don't expect another refreshing masterpiece.

Not Ritchie's best. He's not really the man to do these big CG-fests and it shows. Worse though is that he tries to inject the film with some of his typical style elements, but seems to fail consistently. Makes my ponder if he still has it. In the end the film turned out to be amusing nonsense, but little more than that.

Never watched the original series, but maybe Ritchie was a bit too strict with the source material? The film is a classic spy thriller, but without the inventiveness and visual bravoure you'd expect from a Ritchie film. It's a little quirky and it's somewhat amusing, but it's all quite plain and not all that memorable.Meh.

Dubious filler

A pretty faithful live action adaptation of Disney's animation, with just a dash of Guy Ritchie in there. The musical bits aren't the greatest and this version remains very faithful to the original Disney story, but the setting is vibrant enough and the pacing is pleasant. Also Smith does a way better job than Williams. Not quite my thing, but not a bad adaptation.

Poor Ritchie. I guess we'll never really know how this film came to be, but it's clear that he never felt comfortable doing this. The acting is atrocious, the plot is dumb and the comedy never hits. But at least the setting is nice, the film is short and it's so blunt that some bits are quite funny. That doesn't save it though.
