Writer/Producer/Director Guy Richie’s The Gentlemen has a slow start with some bothersome “Richieness” that almost drove me from the theater.
However, I surrendered to the fact this wasn’t a serious affair and came to enjoy this campy tale of British mobsters that had a lot of twists and turns that were amusing and sometimes surprising.
The best performances are by Colin Farrell, Michelle Dockery, Matthew McConaughey and Charlie Hunnam.
Richie fans will enjoy it and so will you, if you’re willing to surrender to its nonsense.
I give The Gentlemen a 3.5 out of 5.
