The Gentlemen (2019)
Don't expect Lock Stock or Snatch
Guy Ritchie burst onto the scene making the innovative British gangster film Lock Stock & Two Smokin Barrels, following it up with almost as good Snatch & the under rated Rocknrolla before heading off to la la land to make Hollywood blockbusters.
Now he's back to his roots making a new British gangster film The Gentlemen but unfortunately he brought Charlie Hunnam with him who puts on an appauling accent.
Hunnam's accent drifts from English to Irish to American, if he can't do an accent then why not makes his character American like his boss or better still give the role to the brilliant Mark Strong who has such a small role in the film if you blinked you'd miss him?
Unlike Ritchie's counterpart Mathew Vaughan, who still makes innovative & stylish films , he seems to have been corrupted by Hollywood.
Where as Lock Stock, Snatch & Rocknrolla had style & humour The Gentlemen falls a bit flat. It's storyline is good with a few twists & turns but lacks the panache & punch of his early work.
Colin Farrell is brilliant in a type cast role, as is Hugh Grant in the complete opposite of his normal role as a camp investigator looking for a quick payday.
The rest of the cast are good with the exception of Hunnam's accent.
Although The Gentlemen overall is a good film it's certainly no Lock Stock or Snatch.
A hideous monstrosity!
By far the worst Star Wars film in the series, makes The Phantom Menace look like an Academy Award Best Picture winner.
Avoid at all costs if you grew up with the original trilogy.
Rogue One (2016)
The only Disney Star Wars film worth watching
Rogue One is head an shoulders above the other films Disney has produced, quite simply the best in the series since The Empire Strikes Back.
Only negative the very obvious & rubbish CGI of Peter Cushing & Carrie Fischer, completely unnecessary.
