Revolver taps into a struggle everyone faces that only a small few have been able to relate to. It's not that this film isn't a mess, but that mountain of a mess is on top of a shiny gem of a film that is worthy of being admired.

An unwieldy, short-circuiting film, packing "more tricks than a clown's pocket" yet imbued with brute spiritual force

Like De Palma before him, Ritchie knows how to express substance through style.

Revolver is bat**** crazy, and I mean that as a high compliment.

Creepy and mysterious as The Usual Suspects, unseen forces and cryptic messages pit men against themselves in one of the darkest and best action-thrillers of the year.

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

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

Ritchie may still be working within his beloved cockney gangster milieu, but he does to it something akin to what Alessandro Jodorowsky did to the Western with El Topo, or to the slasher flick with Santa Sangre.

Revolver comes off like Jim Thompson crossed with Philip K. I liked it, because of the audacious solution, but I suspect that not many other people will agree.

[A]bout as compelling a brief for Kabbalah as Battlefield Earth was for scientology.

It's not worth the bother.

... given Ritchie's penchant for flashy, in-your-face twists, we trust all will be revealed in good time. But as "Revolver" rolls on -- and on and on and on -- it becomes painfully apparent that Ritchie's firing blanks.

Ritchie has packed Revolver with so much 'substance' that it completely overwhelms his still somewhat charming style.

If I understand the ending properly, [this] is an infomercial for one or another school of New Age-y psychology/philosophy. ... a touchy-feely ultraviolent gangster flick. Come over here and give Scarface a hug, you big gruff pussycat.
