A Guy Ritchie film that I missed in the cinema – and perhaps with good reason...
Although set in the US, the central character is played by Jason Statham (amazingly, with hair!) and several other roles are filled with the usual Ritchie mockney accents. The central baddie is played by Ray Liotta as the ludicrously named casino owner Dorothy (!!) Macha.
Confused? You will be as Jason Staham narrates a series of pseudo-intellectual platitudes, and succeeds in conning himself.
Opinion is sharply divided about this film: you will either love it or hate it. I can't really recommend it, but I guess it's worth a couple of stars. I've seen worse.
