  • It may not win writer-director Guy Ritchie many new converts, but for those already attuned to the filmmaker's brash wavelength, The Gentlemen stands tall.

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

    Telegraphing dialogue, Tarantino-speak tributes, and a third act plot logjam are tantamount to bringing ants to the picnic, but there's enough repellent on board so as not to bother or distract too much.

    It's not that Ritchie's film doesn't have some zip... But the movie time and time again exalts the gallantry of its gentlemen heroes at the expense of those unlike them. It gives this glass of Gritchie's English Lore a bitter taste.

    Guy Ritchie is back in his wheelhouse, spinning tales about flawed yet addicting criminals trying to outwit the next bad guy on the block. The cast is perfectly assembled.

    Class meets crass in Guy Ritchie's The Gentlemen . This film goes down like a good bourbon: smooth, expensive-feeling, and when it burns, it burns good. It's refined but feels a little dirty, like taking a joyride in a Porsche
