Trivia

  • Kate Beckinsale was originally cast but dropped out 2 weeks after shooting began. Michelle Dockery replaced her. An insider said "She explained that other stuff in her life, including an ill family member, meant she could not commit. Luckily, Guy already had Michelle waiting in the wings to take over so that helped to ease the transition. It's a real shame, as it was a great gig for Kate but Guy is sure it will still be a box office hit now that Michelle is on board".

Good times, well paced in typical Guy Ritchie style. Great writing as always. Maybe not as raw as Snatch or LSATSB but still good fun with decent plot twists. Certainly worth admission to a big screen. The theatre was only ten percent attended and people were laughing out loud often, normally not something experienced in an empty theatre. Well done.

Absolutely fantastic. Was really hoping it would hold its own against other Guy Ritchie movies, and it VASTLY EXCEEDED my expectations. I'd say it's his best, but I may just be still buzzing. A proper gangster film.

For all its energy and vulgarity, The Gentlemen is a slog, a tedious and unnecessarily unpleasant tour of ground that Ritchie’s already covered.

Featuring a stellar ensemble cast headed by Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, Charlie Hunnam, Michelle Dockery and Colin Farrell, Ritchie's homecoming is a fairly familiar affair, but also refreshingly funny and deftly plotted, with more witty lines and less boorish machismo than his early work.

The Gentlemen is a disposable crime caper on autopilot. Propped up by an all-star ensemble, particularly the sturdy Charlie Hunnam and scene-stealer Colin Farrell, Guy Ritchie reclaims the genre that brought him to fame but does little more than shuffle battered parts into an intermittently entertaining configuration.
