The Gentlemen

Guy Ritchie, USA, 2020o

vBack

Smart, tough and with an ingenious flair for business, Mickey Pearson, an exiled American, has built a million-dollar marijuana empire in London over the years. But Mickey wants to get out, finally spend more time with his wife and enjoy life in London's highest circles in a legal way. When the news about Mickey's exit from the business makes the rounds, all London's criminals get in line for the takeover.

The film does not so much lionise [Matthew McConaughey's] Mickey as use him to expose the flaws in the British society that accommodates him: a landed gentry all too ready to sell out, a fourth estate desperate to be recognised by the big boys, and amorally rapacious newcomers. And so this ironically titled film defines its characters’ gentlemanliness largely in negative, or reduces it to an issue of style, as witty, well-groomed, wife-loving Mickey and his associates outclass all the other thugs. It is a coarse, convoluted, comical caper that exults in the joys of genre. [Excerpt]

Anton Bitel

Was Hugh Grant alles kann, wenn er nicht den ewigen Buben spielen muss, zeigt er in dieser rasanten Komödie als höhnischer Opportunist, der auch als Erzähler durch den Film führt. Die Besetzung ist exzellent, die Dialoge fliegen schnell und scharf, die Handlung überrascht mit mehreren Twists, in einem Satz: Dieser Film, in dem fast nur Verbrecher auftreten, hat einen hohen Unterhaltungswert.

Jean-Martin Büttner

A la fois hommage au cinéma et polar rythmé, le nouveau film de Guy Ritchie témoigne d’une mise en scène redoutablement intelligente, grâce à un scénario à tiroir des plus ingénieux. Absolument jubilatoire.

Laurent Cambon

Ambiance, personnages, dialogues décalés mènent la danse dans une réalisation sophistiquée. A une cadence qui décoiffe.
