The official trailer for The Gentlemen looks like a return to form for Guy Ritchie, especially after cashing a couple paycheques for Aladdin and King Arthur.
That is one star-studded cast! Everyone looks like they are having an absolute blast here. Ritchie became a household name with his crime comedies (particularly Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels), and this definitely looks like the old Ritchie after he took some time off to insert his unique style into some Hollywood blockbusters.
Ritchie’s films are usually hit or miss for me. I like his Sherlock Holmes films and I appreciate the live-action Aladdin for not being a straightforward remake, but Lock, Stock was sort of boring, if still not an excellently crafted film. The Gentlemen might sell me on cast alone, because I’m not sold entirely on the plot yet.
The Gentlemen hits theaters January 24, 2020.
