3.0 out of 5 stars Not a crime against cinema by any means 7 Jun 2007
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Neither the total disaster the UK critics claimed nor the misunderstood masterpiece its few fanboys insist, Revolver is at the very least an admirable attempt by Guy Ritchie to add a little substance to his conman capers. But then, nothing is more despised than an ambitious film that bites off more than it can chew, especially one using the gangster/con-artist movie framework. As might be expected from Luc Besson's name on the credits as producer, there's a definite element of 'Cinema de look' about it: set in a kind of realistic fantasy world where America and Britain overlap, it looks great, has a couple of superbly edited and conceived action sequences and oozes style, all of which mark it up as a disposable entertainment. But Ritchie clearly wants to do more than simply rehash his own movies for a fast buck, and he's spent a lot of time thinking and reading about life, the universe and everything. If anything its problem is that he's trying to throw in too many influences (a bit of Machiavelli, a dash of Godard, a lot of the Principles of Chess), motifs and techniques, littering the screen with quotes: the film was originally intended to end with three minutes of epigrams over photos of corpses of mob victims, and at times it feels as if he never read a fortune cookie he didn't want to turn into a movie. Rather than a commercial for Kabbalism, it's really more a mixture of the overlapping principles of commerce, chess and confidence trickery that for the most part pulls off the difficult trick of making the theosophy accessible while hiding the film's central (somewhat metaphysical) con.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I like a good action flick. And I enjoy Avant Garde existentialist cinema. When a director well known for his cheery mockney gangster flicks tries his hand at something a bit more Ingmar Bergman the result is either going to be the discovery of a hitherto uinknown artistic genius or a complete mess. In this film Guy Ritchie demonstrates ad nauseum that he is not a hitherto undiscovered artistic genius.

It's not that I am unwilling to watch something different to what I had expected. I have sat through many films that challenged my preconceptions and many of them I have enjoyed thoroughly. It's just that it is a very bad piece of film making. Every directorial decision is pretty much a duffer, right down to the decision to put Jason Statham into a comedy wig for the entire film. The usual Ritchie plot elements, various shades of villain double crossing each other in a hunt for a central treasure, in this case a big stash of drugs, are present and correct, but overlaid with a confused metaphysical mess that detracts from the film. The underlying heist/con story is poorly done, recycling too many plot elements from Ritchie's previous films and very sloppily directed. He has obviously watched Kill Bill and decided to shoe horn in a bit of animation, which is pointless and disjoints the film even further.

The whole thing is a confused mess of two hours, which left me with a lot of questions. With other films such as Seventh Seal I would happily rewatch them to try and get some answer, but nothing would induce me to rewatch this turkey. 1 star.

3.0 out of 5 stars Revolver will leave your head spinning 15 April 2006
Format:DVD
I will really need to watch this again to try and make a bit more sense out of it.

I admire the fact that Guy Ritchie has tried something different and left the "Cor Blimey Guv" characters out of it. A little pretentious in parts and the scene with Statham in the lift is plain awful.

Performance wise, Statham is Ok, Andre 3000 is good but Liotta is awful. An orange casino boss called Dorothy, those Heineken adverts musnt be paying enough.

In short watch it and make up your own mind.

Well, as usual for me I come to this movie well behind the herd since I only just saw it. Viewed this far down the line, frankly all the fuss that's been made about it strikes me as a bit daft.

Apart from the fact that it ditches a conventional narrative it seems to contain all the elements typifying a standard Guy Ritchie flick: memorable larger-than-life characters, bravura action sequences, an ornate narrative puzzle which rocks along and gradually resolves itself --in short the highly artificial concoction that cons/co-ops the viewer into buying into an entertaining cinematic ride as if it bore some actual semblance to reality. It's the same approach he's patented so successfully since Lock Stock. So what's to bitch about? This film is no more artificial than any other in the Director's admirable canon --and for my money every bit as entertaining. This thing's chock full of great screen ideas delivered with the bravura we associate with this classy cinematic stylist. And yet it's got right up so many peoples noses as if it is somehow a creative mis-step which rips-off the fans.

Well, bull. This thing may be unanticipated but it's no aberration. A very interesting and highly entertaining sidestep, more-like. And it's sound.

To bitch about it because it isn't a standard genre gangster film strikes me as dumb. That completely fails to recognise it for what it is: a very original hybrid between the art film and the gangster genre movie. If Ritchie wants to make a personal art film which reflects his passion for cinema why shouldn't he? And why shouldn't we judge the result on it's own terms rather than rejecting it for not meeting the fandom's genre expectations?
