The Gentlemen (2019)
Guy Ritchie’s “The Gentlemen” is a gangster comedy with his once-signature style of narrative jumble and jocular menace.
Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey), a talented graduate of Oxford, is an American expatriate whose unique mind and unprecedented audacity made him rich by building a highly profitable illegal marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he decided to sell his business, it soon triggers an array of plots and schemes – including bribery and blackmail – from shady characters who want to steal his domain.
The narrator here is a conniving unscrupulous private detective named Fletcher (Hugh Grant). Interested buyers include Jewish-American billionaire Matthew Berger (Jeremy Strong) and Chinese mobster “Dry Eye” (Henry Golding). Mickey’s right-hand man is Ray (Charlie Hunnam), a mild-mannered man who looks like a desk clerk until you see him in action.
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)
Another one, by phenomenal Guy Ritchie, who brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action-adventure.
Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film tells an alternative version of the King Arthur legend, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne. After the murder of his father, young Arthur’s power-hungry uncle Vortigern (Jude Law) seizes control of the crown.
Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur is now the only one who can pull out from the magical boulder the legendary and long-lost blade of Excalibur. When fate leads him to pull the sword from the stone, Arthur embraces his true destiny to become a legendary fighter and leader.
Pacific Rim (2013)
Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim is a well-made sci-fi fantasy full of familiar but satisfying moments.
The film takes place in the not-too-distant future. For years, Earth is repeatedly attacked by legions of monstrous creatures called Kaiju who arose from the sea, bringing with them all-consuming war. To fight the Kaiju, mankind developed Jaegers, massive complex robots that require pairs of neural-linked pilots. However, even the Jaegers are not enough to defeat the Kaiju, and humanity is on the verge of defeat.
On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes – a washed-up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) – who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past.
