"The greatest trick that he ever pulled was making you believe that he is you.
"Gambler Jake Green enters into a game with potentially deadly consequences.
After catching this at the cinema last night and having a nights sleep
to think it over I've got to say I'm still a) not quite sure what
happened at the end and b) not 100% sure if I enjoyed it or not.
However, given the recent glut of dot to dot plot and expensive
thoughtless nonsense we've been treated to this summer is it really a
crime to make a film that regardless of your liking for it still makes
you ponder? Sure it has delusions of grandeur and at times disappears
up its own backside - the anime still baffles me as to its inclusion -
but you've got to give Guy Ritchie credit for trying to make something
a bit different, and whilst he is taking a battering on all sides I've
got nothing but admiration for his 'bravery' - as his missus declared
at the premiere.
Jason Statham is as dependable as always - despite the dodgy barnet -
and Ray Liotta and the rest of the supporting cast all acquit
themselves well - special mentions should go to Mark Strong and Andre
Benjamin. It looks great and has some good set pieces - so all in all -
interesting.....did I like it, not sure - am I still thinking about it
-Yes - which is more than can be said for the majority of the other
instantly forgettable nonsense we've been spoon fed with over the last
few months - a DVD viewing beckons, I'll work out that ending even if
it kills me!!
