Critic Reviews for The Gentlemen

All Critics (271) | Top Critics (65) | Fresh (203) | Rotten (68)

  • The MTV-style editing feels passé, its humor smug and fratty.

    March 9, 2020 | Full Review…
  • For all its energy and vulgarity, The Gentlemen is a slog, a tedious and unnecessarily unpleasant tour of ground that Ritchie's already covered.

    February 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Telegraphing dialogue, Tarantino-speak tributes, and a third act plot logjam are tantamount to bringing ants to the picnic, but there's enough repellent on board so as not to bother or distract too much.

    February 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Guy Ritchie goes full reactionary in the outdated and uninteresting The Gentlemen, a boring slog of racist caricatures masquerading as style.

    January 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's not that Ritchie's film doesn't have some zip... But the movie time and time again exalts the gallantry of its gentlemen heroes at the expense of those unlike them. It gives this glass of Gritchie's English Lore a bitter taste.

    January 29, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • I found this movie relentlessly entertaining.

Audience Reviews for The Gentlemen

  • 1d ago
    Guy Ritchie does wonders with this riveting, clever tale of a flamboyant drug criminal underground. It's stylish and exceedingly fun with a colorful cast of characters portrayed by a foray of skilled high profile actors. I regret not being able to catch this film in theaters, just a entertaining ride thru and thru

    The Gentlemen is a welcome return to Guy Ritchie's "Blighty" (England). Ritchie specializes in complex criminal plots with a motley crew of criminal gangs, some competent, some hilariously inept. He also excels at the rat-a-tat dialogue which is comparable to its master, Quentin Tarantino. The acting is phenomenal ... * Matthew McConaughey is excellent as England's "king of pot;" * Charlie Dunham is the best "fixer" a guy could ask for; * Colin Farrell has a scene stealing role as a tough mentor to "troubled teenagers;" and ... * Hugh Grant is oh-so-beautiful as he continues to play against type as the tabloid journalist huckster. The Gentlemen is pure relentless fun.

    For awhile, it's enjoyably old fashioned Guy Richie that is until the plot twists spin out of control. That said Hugh Grant gives a hell of a performance and he makes the whole thing worth it.

    Guy Ritchie deliciously returns to the slimy underworld of slimy Brit gangsters, a modern day Shakespere no less, a film filled with likeable lowlifes who mouth quotable damnations dedicated to utter destruction. And all of these scum are in love, secretly or no, with the idea of the imagined highlife of royalty, and so all want it, even a little part. The cast indulge these lowlifes dreaming of the highlife with a kind of flummoxed humanity, one and all, to wonderful enjoyment such as only Damon Runyon could do for American audiences. A treat.
