What is it with a Guy Richie film! This one is as brutal as it comes.
Bad guys, gangs, violence, the whole shebang. But, if viewed as a comedy of sorts,
just enjoying the performances of the actors, all leads, some with accents so thick,
to be understood, the film is entertaining. It is not being sold as a comedy though,
to be clear.

Film décevant de Guy Ritchie qui reprend la même formule que dans ses premiers films de gangsters. Le seul intérêt est le jeu enjoué de Hugh Grant! À éviter!

Surprisingly entertaining. Not usually a fan of Guy Ritchie, but this was similar to an Elmore Leonard novel/movie. Won't win any awards but some plot twists and some pace. Slow in some areas however. I thought that Hugh Grant & Charlie Hunnam were good.

This is a strange film that I couldn't really get into until I was almost half-way through. I probably wouldn't watch this again.

Be patient and hang in this movie builds up momentum and is really good. But you have to pay attention and follow the story. This movie is not one that you can be on facebook at the same time. If you are one of those people that has a short attention span you most likely will be lost early in this movie. We just loved it with it's many twists and turns and is one of the few movies I might like to watch again. Yes, it really was that good. Before we watched the movie we took the time to read the reviews and noted a few that turned it off after a few minutes and blamed poor acting. No, not poor acting, the acting was great, issue is you have a short attention span.

Poor acting. It seems it is really hard to find something worth watching these days, is it just me?

Great actors, twisty plot, fun outcome. I liked this movie.

I generally tire of "twisty-turny" plot lines after awhile but this movie really kept me tuned in. I was happy to see Hugh Grant given a turn at a challenging, complex character role and he did an excellent job handling it. All the characters were well-developed and engaging. If I have a complaint it is with the "too loud" and overbearing sound track. I wish movie makers didn't think they had to try to heighten suspense this way ~ all it does is make it harder to pick up the 'mysterious' plot clues that keep a person wanting more. I'd love to see a sequel. One of the better movies in a year of pitiful pickings.

Fletcher (Hugh Grant) retells the events of Michael Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) to Michael's henchman Ray in the form of a screenplay. There is banter between the two along with several plot twists and turns. Definitely worth sticking through until the end.

I enjoyed this film, which turned out differently than where I was expecting it to go. Hugh Grant, playing a very different character than I'm used to seeing him, does the bulk of the narrating and the dialogue style forces you to pay attention or to read the subtitles and pays tribute to cinema and filmmaking. The cast includes Henry Golding ("Crazy Rich Asians") and Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey"). The film leaves hope for a sequel.

33 quotes in IMDb but a few odd and dirty ones did not make the cut such as:

There once was a young and foolish dragon who came to ask a wise and cunning lion about acquiring his territory. Now, the lion, he wasn't interested, so he told the little dragon to fuck off. But the dragon couldn't understand what "fuck off" meant, so he persisted and continued to ask the lion about acquiring his territory. So the lion took the little dragon for a walk and put five bullets in his little dragon head. End of story.
-Now, allegedly there's a message in there.
I don't know what it is, but you're a clever boy, Dry Eye.
===
Well, this is Aslan Senior, Russian oligarch. Ex-KGB. Made all his money in gas pipes. And he's extremely sad that his one-and-only son fell out of a window.

Not in IMDb - this piece of conversation tells a lot about the slimy P.I. Fletcher (Hugh Grant) and Raymond (Charlie Hunnam), the right-hand man of Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey):

Fletcher: I do have my insurance policy in place. Everything will go to Big Dave, and from him to the public, and you, my love, will go to Mars. So, strong recommendation, just pay up and watch me recede into the sunset blowing kisses, yes?
Raymond: Well, then, time to use the door, you black bastard.
Fletcher: Well, that's just silly, isn't it, 'cause I'm not black.
Raymond: No, but your fucking soul is, you dark cunt. Now, out of my house, 'cause I'm going to bed.
Fletcher: Can I come with you?
Raymond: No, but you can go smoke the exhaust pipe in the back of your hearse.
Fletcher: I might come anyway. You'll just hear me scratching about in the dark, wanking into a hanky.
