what going on?
The Gentlemen Story: A powerful drug lord at London Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) will be looking to market his own exceptionally profitable Marijuana firm. But before he strikes on the bargain, he’s got to handle a sly blackmailer, dangerous business rivals and a prying tabloid editor. Everybody wants a bit of him.
The Gentlemen Review: From the initial scene’The Gentlemen’ catches your attention and will not release. As a result of a string of crafty gentlemen in sharp suits who are out to get each other although maybe not at a crass gang-bang way. The majority of them are them are tasteful and debonair, some sly and sharp, while others young and charming. Writer director Guy Ritchie creates each of his characters with strong faculties and a slight vulnerability which helps the audience connect with them.
Matthew McConaughey totally fits the bill while the brooding drug Mafioso, who in his words is the”king of the jungle”. His deep baritone voice contributes to the impact of his eloquent conversation delivery and smart demeanor. Ditto for his right-hand man Raymond played with British actor Charlie Hunnam. Collin Farrell is endearing as the honorable boxing trainer of a bunch of rowdy and misled young ones. Rest of the cast is equally striking however, the guy who stands tall above all together with his wry wit and irreverent humour is Hugh Grant. The talented English actor gets the most fun as the cheeky and blackmailing private investigator Fletcher, that narrates his findings into Ray from the shape of a screenplay. The chemistry between both British actors is actually the high point of this film and so will be the subtle sexual innuendoes between the two which produce for many trippy interesting.
Overall,’The Gentlemen’ is a crisp and comedic action entertainer with characters. The punches and jokes aren’t loud and inyourface, but they surely pack a good punch.
