Excerpt: Guy Ritchie may have found a special connection to the material and dreamed up an innovative way to bring it to life, but the world needs him on The Gentlemen, it needs him on Snatch. Let a lesser talent pick the lower-hanging fruit.
Excerpt: Perhaps our expectations were too high after 16 years of waiting, and that’s why the film is such a letdown. For Wrath of Man fails to make the most of an inventive story structure and a typically solid Statham performance, smothering both under a layer of bland masculinity with none of the style and swagger that made Ritchie’s early work so memorable.
Excerpt: As its title suggests, ‘Wrath of Man’ is a hyper-violent, hyper-masculine Guy Ritchie crime caper that follows the fallout of a heist gone wrong. With engaging action, crack editing, and a merry male band of bad-doers, the action-thriller delivers pulpy violence and rousingly calculated, if at times circuitous, plotting.
