The problem with Revolver is that it is Ritchie's first attempt at a 'serious' look at the underworld, but the result is so pretentious and muddled it's almost a little embarrassing.

In a movie about control, it's Ritchie who's adrift, and it's not looking like he's going to come back.

Revolver, the latest Guy Ritchie shoot-em-up, is a joke. You laugh with it but mostly at it.

The movie's hit-to-miss ratio is hardly Olympic caliber, but Mr. Ritchie deserves credit for chutzpah.

A film that's main crime is inducing stupefying boredom with little payoff in the end.

Revolver bogs down badly less than halfway through in a repetitious loop of navel-gazing.

The mystery surrounding the production and how someone as talented as Ritchie could produce a film this ineptly made are the most interesting elements of Revolver.

Ritchie means to be deep here, yet he's never seemed so shallow.

A frothing mad film that thrashes against its very sprocket holes in an attempt to bash its brains out against the projector. It seems designed to punish the audience for buying tickets.

A psychological thriller that focuses more on the 'psycho' than the 'logical' for its own good. But who says everything has to make sense when you're just trying to blow a few brains out?
| Original Score: 3/5

Even the legion of Ritchie fans hooked on the kineticism and casual violence of Snatch will surely turn on the man after seeing Revolver. He has added an insufferable pretense to his usual smugness.

This may not be the single dumbest movie of the year but, to paraphrase Tommy Lee Jones in No Country For Old Men (a film as good as this one is bad), it will do until the dumbest one finally arrives.

Ritchie remains hopelessly inept at delivering a caper flick that's as fun as it is flashy, but now he looks like a pretentious jackass too.

After 2002's terrible Swept Away and now Revolver, Ritchie has managed to make, back to back, two of the worst films any one director can lay claim to.

The prospect of Ritchie going back to the gangster genre a third time is unappetizing, but it has nothing on his feeble attempt to reinvent it.

Under all the stylistic flash and dash, his movie is barely comprehensible; its big surprise ending is no surprise at all; and its coda almost seems like an insult.

This 2005 feature offered me my first taste of Guy Ritchie's macho-centric artiness, and I hope it's my last.

Revolver turns out to be worse than Swept Away -- and not just by a little bit.

As the plot becomes increasingly convoluted -- as if two Ritchie gangster stories have been accidentally fused -- Jake's tortured state becomes ours.

The thing about being smooth is that it's not supposed to look like you're trying, and most of the time Ritchie seems like he's working hard.
