Illegal boxing promoter Turkish (Jason Statham) convinces gangster Brick Top (Alan Ford) to offer bets on bare-knuckle boxer Mickey (Brad Pitt) at his bookie business. When Mickey doesn’t throw his first fight as agreed, an infuriated Brick Top demands another match. Meanwhile, gangster Frankie Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) comes to place a bet for a friend with Brick Top's bookies—as multiple criminals converge on a stolen diamond that Frankie has come to London to sell.
Guy Ritchie’s mile-a-minute style over substance crime comedy turns 20 as the director returns to his roots with this year’s THE GENTLEMEN.
“Mr. Ritchie seizes the bespoke machismo of British gangster movies and gives it an action picture's ferocity. The effort is hyper-real, and he plays it for comic potential.” —Elvis Mitchell, New York Times “Loaded with jazzy sequences (a seconds-long plane trip to New York is especially deft) and attitude-heavy dialogue of the “you took the jam out of my doughnut” variety, this modern look at a Dickensian underworld comes to involve killers who can’t hurt dogs and corpses with tea cozies on their heads. Even if it’s not quite as lighter than air as its predecessor, SNATCH remains a lethal diversion.” —Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
