Critic Reviews for The Gentlemen
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.
This crass, witless, and unpleasant attempt at comedy showcases Ritchie's lack of sense and taste. As two characters agree after looking at the bestiality video, "You can't unsee it." But one does not have to look at it in the first place.
There's a very self-aware element to [Matthew McConaughey's] performance and to this film -- for the better. This is a great return to form for Guy Ritchie.
