Movie Thoughts: The Gentlemen
Guy Ritchie should never make any movies that aren’t violent dark comedies about the British criminal underworld. This movie does the same thing as Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels — it sets up a web of money and weapons and criminal activities and economic incentives and then sends you through it. Set-up and payoff is always worth the price of admission in a Guy Ritchie movie (like this). That said, The Gentlemen is no Snatch or Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, but it’s a good watch.
