The Gentleman is an action crime movie written and directed by Guy Ritchie set for release this January 2020 in the US.
In this British gangster tale, fans of Ritchie’s early work will be excited to see him at the helm of another crime caper.
The movie stars Mathew McConaughey as Mickey Pearson, an American expatriate who became rich by building a marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business, it soon triggers an array of plots and schemes from those who want his fortune.
Although Ritchie ostentatiously includes a poster for that last film in one shot here, as if insisting on its neglected auteur meisterwerk status, The Gentlemen barrels cheerfully along like a 113-minute Madness video, and one reason it’s more watchable is that Ritchie doesn’t indulge on his terrible habit of speeded-up montage scenes.
