Consensus: In attempting to meld his successful previous formulas with philosophical musings, Guy Ritchie has produced an incoherent misfire.

[A]bout as compelling a brief for Kabbalah as Battlefield Earth was for scientology.

Seattle Times

It's an irritating, repetitive and pretentious psycho-metaphysical con-job that's ultimately about transcending the ego, and it owes a significant debt to the 1960s The Prisoner TV show -- but isn't nearly in the same artistic league.

Not the disaster described in the British press but unlikely to restore Ritchie's luster.

Guy Ritchie's greasy little noir Revolver is good grindhouse fun until a last act that's like a meeting of a psychoanalysts' convention.

Revolver taps into a struggle everyone faces that only a small few have been able to relate to. It's not that this film isn't a mess, but that mountain of a mess is on top of a shiny gem of a film that is worthy of being admired.

San Francisco Chronicle

The plot isn't intellectually challenging as much as it is confusing, and yet the big twist is completely telegraphed. Ritchie has created a movie that is patronizingly obvious one minute and impenetrable the next.

New York Daily News

Between the manic editing, atrocious acting, and laughably pretentious narration, Ritchie's tired tricks feel like empty distractions in a game of three-card Monte.

Fernando F. Croce

An unwieldy, short-circuiting film, packing "more tricks than a clown's pocket" yet imbued with brute spiritual force

A brilliant and spectacular adrenaline-driven crime-thriller. A senses shattering instant classic. A pure knockout. Intensely gripping, compelling and… More

Not for everyone, and especially not for those who prefer their plots spoon-fed to them, much less to make sense, Ritchie does some knocking on Scorcese… More

I enjoyed Lock, Stock but thought that it pandered a little too much to the cheap seats. Snatch was better, but still a little rough around the edges. Whereas… More
