That being said, the movie was an empty suit, a hollow shell.

Waste of my time and money.

My first thought was that it is a cliché action movie with a predictable plot.

Really enjoyable.

Fast paced.

Formulaic .

There is tremendous acting talent in this film with Matthew Mcconaughy, I found Hugh Grants part to be very amusing and entertaining.

BORING.

Couldn't sit through the whole thing, a borefest to put it mildly.

The key to making them work, especially for me, is the really make the characters engaging and worth caring for.

From the initial credit scenes all the way to the end this film is just stunning and the plot is amazing.

But mercilessly gripping.

It's slow to start and honestly, it's worth sticking with it as all stories merge to show the final outcomes.

I think it has to do with how people try to imitate mobs, only to come off boring.

The Gentlemen is a thoroughly enjoyable movie.

Highly entertaining story and yes this is a violent film.

Entertaining from start to finish.

A little too much narrating for my taste and some characters didn't get enough screen time, but other than that I really enjoyed it.

His character is perhaps one of the most complex yet fascinating characters I've seen on celluloid in recent times.

The Gentlemen will uncover little by little the criminal empire built by Michael, all plots made by rivals to take over his business and there will be many unexpected plot twists.

The casting is just wrong in almost every way, McConaughey and Hunnan In this genre are about as interesting as watching paint dry and even Hugh Grant is not a good choice as the storyteller.

What ensues, is giddy entertainment a'la Chef Ritchie's Specialty of witty, super-fast, intelligent, humorous exchanges and more than a few sleights-of-hand by a gallery of engaging and colorful characters who are thrown into numerous subplots, countless twists and turns, betrayals, confrontations and several inevitable revelations.

Switched off after 30mins bored.

Stupidity and chance make movies funny and give them that sense of reality, because reality is also unpredictable.

Well worth the watch.

I attempted to watch this last night and before I could turn it off I fell asleep.

Overall, its a waste of time.

great performance , funny scenes and accents are really entertaining , but the story is so confusing.

I was bored to death by this .

Guy Ritchie's gangster-comedy, The Gentlemen is one that is entertaining as hell though it asks viewers to carry the load much higher than most of other commercial movies because Ritchie's style of providing information is skilled like a sharp shooter person.

It's another kinda dark, gritty, bloody, messy but quite enjoyable piece by Guy.

Told as part narrative part flashback, this is a motley crew of odd ball characters who I found to be immediately entertaining, despite their apparent villainy...

" after watching it a second time it was way more enjoyable and funnier because you can really focus on the script and perfect dialogue in every scene, and you will probably go " ooooh...

But if there is one thing which stops this from being an exceptional movie, it is Ritchie's unnecessary and sometimes pointless tradition of four-letter words.

Nevertheless, "The Gentlemen" is entertaining, and its 2-hour length flies past you quite fast.

We're in the minority, but save your money and time.

All the action scene super messy, and bored!

great story, enjoyable humor and a great ending...

Honestly, expect the unexpected.

Despite predictable plot avenues and a couple of cliche scenes, the film provided a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Waste of money .

'The Gentlemen (2020)' is fine, consistently engaging and occasionally quite fun.

All in all, this was a funny, enjoyable gangster movie, despite a few plot holes.

Worth the watch!

Early in his career he made some very entertaining comedic gangster flicks ("Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", "Snatch"- I even think "RocknRolla" is alright); and I think his blockbusters are entertaining as well (the "Sherlock Holmes" series; and make fun of me if you want, but though "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" was absolutely ridiculous, I thought it was also a lot of b-movie fantasy fun).

Will this is what cinema should be, fun, entertaining and no lecture/politics.

This film was such a bore to me.

Enjoyable if slow at times .

Very breathtaking movie with unexpected turns, typical for Guy Ritchie movies and absolutely worthwhile watching!!

This movie is just dull.

The story is pointless...

Grant is oddly compelling as a bad guy.

The storytelling was hilariously done with a few unexpected twists.

This movie is another Guy Ritchie special, entertaining from start to finish, great script along with stellar casts.

My fitbit thought I fell asleep.

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Rating: 2 and a half stars for well, the empty style points and the lush UK interiors.

The acting is slow, the action is dumb, the script is off point, the story-line is stupid, the editing is very dull and boring.

Waste no more time time reading this review...

There's hardly any action, and I even find the slow paced 1940's & 1950's Crime Noir movies far more engaging to watch.

I enjoyed it.

Very enjoyable - great story.

Ritchie's dialogue is sharp as ever and his storytelling is still worth watching develop.

Some great set pieces (see South London council estate) are interspersed with genuinely gripping character moments and dialogue a la early Tarantino; with this often offset with black-hearted comedy side-plots and riffs.

The story is good and kept me entertained, but the missus got bored.

Now THIS is a film worth watching.

Slick and gripping .

It's tightly edited and enormously entertaining, watching a handful of decent actors become great during the run time, with Hunnam, Farrell, and McConaughey contributing some of their finest efforts in the picture, focused on remaining in sync with the director's vision for twisty language and turns of plot.

The Gentlemen stumbles out of the gate with a dialog heavy intro but slowly brings its self together culminating in an entertaining and sometimes laugh out loud crime flick.

This is pure and enjoyable Guy Ritchie, with timeline cuts and jumps and characters that one may think only he can write.

Satisfying and enjoyable, it's clever and never feels forced or cringe at any point.

It goes from (near) action then to boring narration to where I audibly groaned.

and Snatch, yet it's an enjoyable 2 hour British crime caper that doesn't take itself too seriously.

It will have you laughing out loud, gripped with an engaging narrative, and gasping at some of the violence (and again laughing at some of it).

Honestly one of the worst films I've ever seen in theaters, I nearly left because it got so tedious.

Buckle up, and brace yourself for another twisty, turn-ey, action packed, roller coaster of a film.

I thought it was very interesting pee slow in the beginning what you catch up to it understand the plot there is characters you said went to watch a movie all the actors of the great not too much action while I'm talking all in all is very good that was entertaining I recommended surprise ending no spoilers

Would highly recommend it!!!

Every role is cast perfectly, the script is fun and engaging, the characters memorable, the soundtrack rocking and the direction is on point.

This casual and light reply to Scorsese's "The Irishman", is an interesting and intelligent interpretation of exiting the exciting world of crime.

A boring if old fan, attempt at comedy in a criminal background .

and the Sherlock Holmes films are entertaining and fun, to say the least.

Everything he says is always engaging, either by the way he says it, his expressions, or the physical intensity he puts into his own words.

I just got out of watching the GentlemenI enjoyed it a great deal.

Enjoyed it thoroughly - enough twists an turns to keep you thinking.

Fun, sleek and entertaining.

Conclusion: ultimately it is still quite boring.

This was the silliest waste of time made to date.

Very Entertaining .

The acting is medioker, I don't find it interesting, I'm getting bored.

Entertaining.

But still boring.

Intense thriller .

Very entertaining film .

Guy Ritchie is in fine form with this slick and highly entertaining crime caper.

Definitely keeps you at the edge of your seat, though a slow ride at the start.

Very enjoyable, very cool, very Guy Richie.

The flashback almost every scene, also make the film unwatchable!

The Gentlemen's wacky story and directing style made for a very entertaining watch.

I don't mind slower paced movies, it was an entertaining movie.

Watching was enjoyable.

It was very entertaining and paced well.

Enjoyable from beginning to end.

I did stick this on not expecting much but it was great, really enjoyable.

Ultimately, some fun performances and the occasional stellar scene make this worth the watch.

I found the film to be pretty entertaining & enticing.

Hugely enjoyable example of its genre

Whilst there are plenty of enjoyable moments in this film, one can not help getting distracted by the endless quips and witty one liners.

Absolutely entertaining and thrilling, superbly acted, visually beautiful, and the most homoerotic thing I've seen on the big screen since "Brokeback Mountain.

Guy Richie has become one of my favorite directors because he delivers very entertaining films on a consistent basis...

It's very entertaining and I would expect nothing less from Guy Ritchie in this genre.

Worth watching again.

It's sort of entertaining though.

Hard to follow and concentrate 2 hours narration mixed with interrupted actions.

, you'll know pretty much exactly what to expect - but The Gentlemen is still hugely entertaining.

all things considered the movie is watchable but for me as a comparison to SNATCH it comes nowhere near & it really is just a predictable story with no real impact....

Also, it was very slow, and no amazing scene like Snatch's fight, Lock's massive gun shoot out, RocknRolla's outside of the nightclub fight scene with "The Subways" playing in the background.

Guy Ritichie is now his own cliche .

It's a great watch, and while at some points it may seem tedious, I would say the first 30 minutes pass rather slowly, it gets more and more interesting as it nears its end.

Enjoyable.

Funny, clever, gritty, funny, intelligent, entertaining, did I mention its funny?

The twists towards the end are a little more predictable than I would have liked and I'm not sure my justifications from the previous paragraph works for the potential rape scene.

Some reviewers here are commenting that there was no plot!

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

They work with what they got, but there are times that the narrative feels a little disjointed.

Entertaining .

Unwatchable.

A reasonably entertaining crime thriller .

Bad acting and a weak predictable story.

Deffo worth watching!

Boring and Pointless .

Entertaining from start to finish.

A sore waste of time.

Everything is unexpected so so so good.

There are some cliche moments in this movie and it is kinda disappointing.

It was mind numbingly boring with a story that was so generic I thought a 13 year old child had written the screenplay.

Some of them even seem like stand-ins for the director himself, with talk of "proper cinema" and references to films like 'The Conversation (1973)' being "a bit boring".

Enjoyed it thoroughly!

Trite .

Definitely worth watching .

Great, entertaining movie .

Yawn .

Really entertaining.

Overall this movie is a fun crowd pleaser that has a engaging style that has convinced me to check out some of Guy Ritchies other movies, so check it out.

Potentially a stuffy, slow, hard edged movie with lots of cursing and torture, I could only imagine what I would get, especially when another fan left in a rant 20 minutes into the film.

Hugh Grant is probably the most entertaining I've ever seen him and Colin Farrell is wickedly funny.

THE most boring, uninspired, trash I've seen in a long while.

The movie is action packed, it's hilarious, and the cast is fantastic.

Engaging and witty dialogue.

Slow movie, many times i felt like i was watching a commercial.

Absolutely entertaining, but predictable.

It's this balance of connections with the mystery that for me was the biggest engaging piece to the movie, that teasing to see how deep the politics run always being that itch you can't scratch.

Acting was good, story is a bit predictable yet gripping.

Nothing too unexpected here, but it's funny and hugely entertaining .

THIS WAS BY FAR THE MOST EXCITING EXHILARATING ,ACTION PACKED AWESOME SUSPENSE,..I CAN'T EXPESS THE BEST MOVIE I HAVE SEEN..AND I HAVE SEEN THEM ALL WE ALL APPLAUD THE CAST AND WRITTER AND DIRECTOR WE WANT MORE..

This is a very exciting film not a dull moment and done smoothly without lots of blood and violence.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Good movie you have to watch this one, unpredictable and good story olso..

Belonging to that kind of good-looking movie, Guy Ritchie returned to his early style: multi-cue, multi-character, excellent rhythm control, all kinds of black humor and irony, enjoyable violent scenes, and playfulness with the plot and the audience.

Film was a bit slow at the start but got more gripping as time went on.

The stupid beginning already exposed a predictable one-way developed direction.

Hugely enjoyable and brilliantly done abd so bloody English!

Don't waste your money.

An era when he made crime movies that were genuinely funny and gripping.

Its one of a few movies I actually turned offGo and do something else and don't waste your time on this junk

Baffled by the critics reviews, some of the criticism is daft, you don't judge a burger by a steak, this is no Citizen Kane, what it is however is a highly entertaining film, filled with memorable characters, on point performances (Grant in particular is excellent) genuine humour and, well, it's a lot of fun, if your a fan of burgers and films of this ilk, give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

A Great movie for those that love quick and snappy dialog, with a mix of violence, a mass of twist and turns - As well as a balls to the wall pace.

A thunderously entertaining script.

Lock Stock - AMAZING Snatch - AMAZING AGAIN The Gentlemen - BORING.

Well, you keep telling yourself that, as you fall asleep with uninteresting characters telling, in a boring way, some stupid story.

He delivered a pretty good live-action remake of Aladdin while offering his own take (Jasmine has more compelling motivations).

Don't waste your time nothing close to SNATCH at all!

Guy Ritchie has done an amazing job by keeping everything enjoyable with slight dose of dark humor from begining to the end.

and I know something worse about you"and now the definition of "deus ex machina" is a plot device whereby a seemingly unsolvable problem in a story is suddenly and abruptly resolved by an unexpected and unlikely occurrence.

Really enjoyed it was a classic guy Ritchie movie and is up there with his best work in my opinion.

The main talking parts of the film are with 2 people, Fletcher & Raymond, Fletcher talks in a very blackmailing way to Raymond the whole time because he has all the information for both sides of the story so he is in a powerful decision, but the way Fletcher delivers his part to the film is very enjoyable to watch as is script is spot on to how that character should be while Raymond puts up with him throughout the film.

After experiencing something of a creativity drought in recent years, Guy Ritchie comes back with a vengeance, bringing his trademark fast paced editing and unmistakable British charm to a film much more suited to his personal preferences.

It simply does NOT want to stop being smart , ending up being boring after half an hour of SMART talk and more smart talk....

Stunning film .

A boring overdone movie with bad character choices, annoying actors.

Interesting characters, intriguing mystery, and hilarious bits of comedy make this feature very entertaining.

A surprisingly fun and engaging Guy Ritchie film.

It can be easy to forget sometimes that movies are allowed to solely be entertaining popcorn flicks.

I was very confused during most of the first act and was a little bored by the pacing of the first act.

Expectations were not disappointed: excellent cast, entertaining and nice screeplay .

Like back in times where Ritchie directed "Snatch" or "Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels" this movie is entertaining in so many ways.

It doesn't go overboard with cuts and crazy camera shake though, that's a good thing, its very well balanced and the violence is visceral and engaging.

Enjoyable .

Probably one of the most boring movies to watch.

This unfortunately didn't meet his standard (like Dirty Harry, The Godfather, The Untouchables, Good Fellas, Kill The Irishman, We Own The Night, etc..).Lots of Guy Ritchie fanboys are defending this really boring movie.

However, Comic and entertaining for the audience.

Guy Ritchie is back in top-form in this violent, hilarious, intense, completely politically incorrect masterpiece of a movie, with memorizing characters who ooze style and charisma, with ridiculously clever and witty dialogue, and meta stuff to top it all off.

Hugh Grant leads with a fascinating performance as a private investigator who also doubles as a narrator of sorts who Ritchie uses as a vehicle to unfold and explain the story in a truly unique manner.

Starts slow ends up great .

"The American Lion in the English Jungle"Guy Ritchie returns to both the writing and directing chair to craft an exciting action-filled comedy that only he and he alone could create.

Gripping crime caper....

If you're not a Guy Ritchie fan or been involved this world than you're not the target audience, so go back to your mundane life and watch superman or star wars for you wow's.

Really worth watching- best movie I have seen for a long while

Zzzzz bit cringey if anything.

There were moments when I thought that I'd leave because something struck me as too intense.

To be quite honest, while this is is an original film, it's more of a slow burn rendition of previous London gangster Ritchie stories.

No writing, no plot just a pathetic movie!

Some directorial choices seem to be made only for vanity, such as one bit where a character drones on about the magic of classic cinema.

Robbie K here to give you some insight as he checks out:Movie: The Gentleman (2020)Director: Guy Ritchie Writers: Guy Ritchie (screenplay by), Guy Ritchie (story by) Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Michelle DockeryLIKES:The Humor The Character Usage The Mystery/Politics The Connections The Presentation The Censorship of violence, for the most part The ActingDISLIKES:The Excessive Cursing For Me Missing Some Action The Extended Ending Some Stereotypical Annoyances The Rapping Video Slow At Parts SUMMARYWhen it comes to the British writing style, this reviewer always looks to the potential for balanced writing.

The movie is predictable especially in the later second act and in the third act and I really wish it wasn't predictable.

This is why you find a lot of people who say they found Snatch to be confusing due to all of the plotlines happening at the same time as well as them not paying attention to what is actually being said.

An exciting watch.

Intense screenplay, marvelous narration with a superb script and masterpiece acting by all its actors makes this movie a must watch film.

At times, I think there is simply too much dialouge, which led to some confusion in following the plot.

I give it a 6.0. Other than an all-star cast, which did their best given the writing (Colin Farrell, Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam etc.) the movie was such a bore, a sub par buildup of a literal narrator from the very start and if you have seen all of his previous films, a total rehash.

It has to be at least entertaining!

One of the best movies I've seen lately I highly recommend it

I enjoyed it.

It wasn't as good as Scarface, but it was an enjoyable movie that had some moments of comedy wrapped up in a good old fashion drug gangsta movie.

"The Gentlemen" is thoroughly enjoyable, sleek and smart.

Told through the non-chronolgical, non-reliable narrator trope; The Gentleman weaves and winds and twists and turns from an initial scene containing an unexpected execution* to imagined and suggested actions being interspliced with new revelations to create a tapestry of true(ish) events.

Very slow beginning, finished well.

The point of the movie where it got to slow for me was the scene before they threw that russian kid out the window (we'll get to that later).

An entertaining yet predictable movie carried by Hugh Grant and Colin Farrell.

Perfectly cast and well directed, the Gentlemen is an entertaining return to form for Guy Ritchie.

The Gentlemen's pacing is fueled by said high octane conversation between characters, and it managed to keep me fully immersed the entire time.

Fast paced, convoluted in a good way (the Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch way) and with an excellent cast.

What a waste of everyone's time and efforts.

It does get exciting in the end but an absolute waste of money!

SLOW .

It is all entertaining enough : the characters are well formed and the action is fast paced.

I'll get straight to the point It's a good movie worth watching you won't be disappointed .

The storyline is thin, the scenes disjointed but above all, it was just boring.

However I felt that the pace of the movie was quite slow, I would have personally liked a faster pace.

What a great enjoyable experience this was...

Guy Ritchie's best and most enjoyable work since Snatch .

The only positive thing about this movie is the costumes which is delightful, overall I would say this is a waste of time and money.

Guy Ritchie back on form, this will sit as a true classic, entertaining from the start to the end with plenty of twists and quality acting along the way.

Dare I say it has some gripping moments?

Sounds confusing 'duneh it'?

Very entertaining and surprisingly very funny.

Boring .

After what was a slow and tedious intro to the film, I pushed through and quite enjoyed it as a whole.

The acting isn't at its best there are a lot of people coasting, McConaughey looks completely bored thinking what happened to the McCnaissance apart from when he gets angry now and then.

A lot of what you will see in here is confusing and there is some unnecessary violence.

The casting is brilliant, dialogue snappy and fun, locations, cinematography are all top notch.

The movie is funny, clever, violent and terribly entertaining.

Even I was so bored in one stage.

The constant callbacks to past incidents and shifts of perspective all add to create a story that is one of the most entertaining ones of the year.

They always take the easy, predictable way out.

It was much more entertaining than I thought Guy Ritchie capable of (or that he showed in "King Arthur").

It's slow paced and boring .

The Gentleman is a truly entertaining piece of film with an enthralling plot and unique storytelling .

Another brilliant Guy Ritchie film for the books This was a funny, intense, violent puzzle that kept me on the edge of my seat and kept me guessing.

It took some time to get going, around 20-30 minutes of exposition to set up the story, but the rest of the movie was quite the entertaining ride.

Theres a lot going on in this movie I think that's a good thing and bad thing,good thing because there's a lot of variety of entertainment but also a bad thing because with so much going on it might be a little difficult to follow the plot.

6/10 - Guy Ritchie's latest action flick has some big names, but was a little too harsh and intense for my tastes

The plot is very hard to follow in the first act and almost feels like you're having to catch up with what's going on straight away, but once you get into the flow with the characters, it's consistently entertaining, deliciously dark and absolutely hilarious, beautifully edited by James Herbert and a must see return to the British crime genre from one of the masters

"The Gentleman" is fun, playful, contains top tier performances, and is undeniably entertaining.

The only thing entertaining was Hugh Grant's accent.

If you saw the trailer as I did, you'd expect something much more entertaining and thrilling.

I did think the movie was kind of boring in the first half hour until it picks up.

Boring movie.

It seems Guy Ritchie keeps making the same movie: A heist/crime adventure with a script that keeps jumping backwards and forwards, numerous quirky characters with different ethnicities and accents, snappy dialogue, sudden cuts and musical moments, all of it needlessly complicated and stylized and a bit annoying.

Pity that he's not much a storyteller because The Gentlemen is a little ponderous, a little shilly-shally, and all over the map.

Classic Guy Ritchie movie (funny, twists and turns, constant thrilling/entertaining/slightly bloody one-upping); long-time fans won't be disappointed.

I had a bad feeling watching this in a near empty theatre session.

Brilliant screenplay play and Hugh grant should win an oscar alongside some stunning performances.

It's messy and misjudged but it's entertaining enough to keep you in your seat.

The journey of Gentlemen may never end up taking us to the outstanding destination or culmination that we hope for as we watch a bunch of deceiving and scheming players act up around the sale of Mickey Pearson's criminal enterprise but there's little denying the fact that the easy to watch, curse-ridden and well played out journey we partake in is a thoroughly enjoyable one, without ever becoming a downright memorable one.

On the whole though, the Gentleman is enjoyable enough.

amongst others) on an excellent camerawork servicing a tight narrative pace whose thread, mainly for Fletcher's catchy story-telling, is never lost during the film and until its, partially unexpected, ending.

It's not going to change your life, but it is wonderfully entertaining.

Awesome movie, enjoyed it right from the start.

The Gentlemen, a highly entertaining movie.

To see it return here, under new management, is a fascinating conversation all it's own.

Honestly, I enjoyed the first part of the movie for what it is, the dialogue is great and it's well made, but predictable.

I realize this is anecdotal evidence, but people walked out.

His wife, the cockney mob moll, was way too much of a cliché.

Forget the 'expert' reviews, this is a smooth and entertaining flick with all the humour and blend of characters you'd expect from GR.

Wildly entertaining .

Enjoyable way to pass the time in a well spun story with fine pacing.

Being as how January is usually a dumping ground for maligned films, you could do a lot worse than this enjoyable romp.

Well shot, well made, entertaining tongue in cheek gangster movie.....

It's fun, it's fast, it's loaded with humor and it places twists around every corner for you to stay where you belong - on the edge of your seat.

Excellent cast and a good plot Made for an enjoyable movie Didn't really need all the swear words

Script of this film is so simple and straightforward and yet twisty and gripping.

I believe anyone would find 'The Gentlemen' both entertaining and exciting.

In short; boring, boring and then boring.

Well worth watching .

It's as if he has wholesale lifted characters from The Long Good Friday and transported them to the new millennium to face some of the more unexpected issues around.

Most impressive and entertaining.

With a deft and artful hand and sure command of his narrative threads, he has fun rearranging the linearity of the story (which if attempted by anyone else might be confusing), and delivers something close to a masterpiece.

A really interesting and engaging storyline.

Boring movie, awful plot and casual racism throughout

Shifting the time frame around enters the entertaining Fletcher, Hugh Grant, and I guess working from his true life tabloid experience, while adding a bit of Michael Caine sauce to it.

Entire film a bit mystery, but quite slow!

A lot of substance in the first act may lead to some confusion and maybe a little bit of a headache with all the information thrown at the audience.

cliche boy drama film .

Extremely boring and confusing.

It's just boring, and it's been done to death by this director and Steven Soderbergh's Oceans movies.

Funny,entertaining and really enjoyable.

great characters, great performances, tight gripping script, nice camera.

I got bored after 30 minutes.

A very enjoyable crime caper with wonderful dialogue .

30 minutes is more than enough for me, it was simply TRITE and BORING.

We loved every minute of it and made plans for a second viewing before we even left the theater.

Its a lot of fun but a bit confusing so I'm giving it 7 out 10.

It simply does NOT want to stop being smart , ending up being boring after half an hour of smart gangster talk.

Even though I really really didn't like the film, I will definitely disagree with anyone who tries to say they were bored watching it.

With the help of a cast comprised of big names and lovable favorites such as Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Hugh Grant and the inimitable Colin Farrell, as well as an intelligent, engaging and entertaining script, Guy Ritchie once again comes through in delivering sumptuous fare for the eyes and ears and heart.

Smart, Witty and Snappy lines...

" The way the story is told is quite unique, and the twists and fake outs used were quite entertaining, not everything may be exactly what we see.

Really enjoyed it.

""Knives Out" came out last year and many people enjoyed it.

Well I must be the odd man out as I thought it was rather dull, Fake cockney accents and not the best cast.

But it's damn boring with an unreliable narrator dictating to the audience the entire plot.

It is entertaining, funny and gritty: simply a good job.

In the beginning you think it's a boring story which is completely told.

Starring Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant, it is an entertaining return to that classic Guy Ritchie style of British gangster eccentricism that has been missing for quite some time.

The movie is so thrilling, I really didn't want it to end.

Absolutely unwatchable.

Not only was the plot unique, it kept you on the edge of your seat.

Lewd, crude and mercilessly gripping .

Amazing job done with the slow zoom transitions, they added good suspense and slow pacing at the right times.

The early scenes dragged because as clever as the dialogue was, Charlie Hunnam could not keep up with Hugh Grant's acting levels and it showed.

I'm already making allowances for one of the two most trite, formulaic genres, the gangster flick.

A perfect movie, great script, wonderful acting and adrenaline action .

So entertaining he's even written a screenplay to go along with his investigation.

Ritchie's style bleeds throughout this film's core from the very opening title credits, to the final cut to black; all of his standard trademarks are here which some may find tiresome, while others will find great enjoyment out of.

Boring and trying to hard.

Very Entertaining .

Worst Movie Ever .

It was a waste of time and one of the worst movies I have ever seen

After the critically panned Alladin, Guy Ritchie returns to the underground world of bribery, drugs, money-laundering and blood in a refreshing yet entertaining story.

Slow burning fire.

It was fast paced, exciting and genuinely very funny.

It was very slow to start.

The only ok part of the film for me is, that its mildly entertaining, it wasn't dull.

absolutely stunning!!

Boring .

Why such a boring narrator who is basically a bad guy, snitch and why such lack of real action criminal underworld scenes?

too many characters, pointless unrelated subplots, and a style and tone that gets old.

Highly entertaining .

Entertaining flick from the British Tarantino-Hugh Grant steals the show and should be used way more as a character actor.

Just boring.

Simply Stunning .

However the story is hard to follow.

Boring Movie.

And enjoyed it every time.

The film can be very funny when it needs to be, and increasingly entertaining as the film and the world surrounding the characters we are falling begins to unravel.

The story is mundane and the acting clichéd .

Highly entertaining .

All the actors have done justice to their roles Mathew is intense as usual.

Amazing cast Amazing script Amazing humor Unpredictable script

The style here being the cockney-accent heavy cussing, violence and contrived twists and turns in the plot.

With this supporting component, the movie continues to get better in the way it balances so many things to make an engaging mafia tale.

I loved how the story was told through the lens of a potential movie script, but at times it was confusing what was going on due to poor character presentation.

I went with the husband and expected to be bored and I wasn't.

It's cheesy, it's formulaic, and does everything by the numbers.

Although the story is promising at first, its self-indulgent quality & forced twists diminish the interest as plot progresses.

The Gentleman is a truly entertaining piece of film with an enthralling plot and unique storytelling.

He's back to what he does best - a good action packed movie with a fab acting from a star cast - especially Matthew Mcconaughey.

An entertaining return to that classic Guy Ritchie style of British gangster eccentricism .

Fortunately, The Gentlemen packs a hard punch, and is a very entertaining movie.

The 4 of us gave it an hour, but it was confusing, disjointed, and unwatchable.

An exciting part to talk about in this kind of films would be the action set pieces unfortunately, The Gentlemen does not offer much.

I literally walked out of the theater about 1/3 into this mess.

The film kicks off with a humorous and witty direction and a good cast to hold the movie together with a story that has plenty of twists and turns to make it worth watching.

For the rest it's an excellent, amusing and exciting movie.

Super boring .

Then we get this completely boring guy telling, or half-telling, some stupid story about our slain hero.

For me its 30% out of 100 its pretty bad if you ask me for the reasons I've given, I'd high recommend it to people to avoid, don't waste your time watch one of Guy Ritchie's films from early in his career, not this wannabe!

One less star because the scene jumps, although an integral part of the overall structure of the story, seemed excessive & confusing at times.

The story has one and only twist and its predictable.

I must say great story and very entertaining ,just a one character it doesn't fit to that movie is a Hugh Grant.

Don't get me wrong, this is an enjoyable film overall and a good addition to the Guy Ritchie canon.

Sadly, that formula became a little self-indulgent by the final act.

Absorbing story telling is mixed with modern, fast paced, cinematic tricks, music and colour.

Even the jokes are dull and infantile.

If you want an entertaining break from bloated budgeted films with bad acting (Bad Boys, Jumanji, etc) try this one- I loved it!

It tries to be meta but bores like no other.

Slow beginning .

Oh this movie is extremely entertaining , gangs action comedy acting avrey thing is here , and it took long time for Matthew macConuaghey to be in a good movie .

At the start and in the midle I got boring.

It is fast paced, action packed and fun.

So personally I'm not all to familiar with Guy Ritchie's films, but if anything I feel like I know his style from seeing this movie, and it's really enjoyable for the most part.

Unnecessary racism, bit boring and fuelling for the current climate at the moment.

The comedy and wit of the characters really makes for an enjoyable 2 hours in the cinema.

Boring af.

Slick, suave & stylish, the film rides heavily on splendid performances of its compelling cast, and while not one of the better examples of its genre(s), this crime comedy has got just enough meat on its bones to entertain & appease the crowds.

Snatch is his best and this is not far behind, great acting and enjoyable movie.

The meta framing with Hugh Grant and Charlie Hunnam was clunky enough that even Hunnam's character was getting bored with the "telling" in the exposition provided by Grant's character.

As I mentioned, it's often quite enjoyable and it's always engaging.

Although it's not going to be winning Oscars and critics praise, it is an entertaining watch, and a beautifully shot film - and seriously, what else do you need?

I mean, the script still feels like it was written by an edgy 15-year-old but it's just so entertaining and fun.

Story: Gangstar story with a lot of sudden changes, which is vary exciting to watch Actors: very good suited, like they was born for their roles Play: all did a great job, I really believe them, like some kind of empathy, even if main characters are bad, you cheering for them And movie was not too long or too short, just perfect timing, to sit and have little bit less than two hours of unpredictable story.

It might be a case of Ritchie 'playing it safe' by revisiting familiar territory, but when the result is as entertaining as this, why the hell not?

This is a remarkably entertaining movie.

From his witty/snappy dialogue to his hilarious choices of the way certain characters speak, he has certainly not lost touch with the types of movies he likes to make.

Every character is memorable and the story is unpredictable, funny and intelligent.

Nevertheless, it was entertaining to watch how everything came together in the end like a puzzle piece.

Dull, lackluster, borefest.

Am i really that slow?

Matthew ruins the film, the mancannot act, uses the same boring breathless voice as always.

My old man himself found the movie BORING, and that's coming from someone who likes gritty crime movies.

About 40 minutes and he turned to me and said how boring and slow the movie was.

This is a well paced, very entertaining film with great original plot, a lot of well done stylistic element and no insults to intelligence.

Boring, without interesting story, predictable

While most I could follow, there were a lot that were either formulaic or just didn't go anywhere.

Was it an enjoyable couple of hours, on the whole yes.

waste of time .

The story is written well, and every detail works together and well layered with many different moving parts that kept me on the edge of seat the entire time.

Basically nothing had happened 45 minutes in, and I for only the second time in my life walked out of the movie theater (The first being raising Helen with Kate Hudson) I may end up giving the movie another try just based off of so many good reviews/friends asking if I stayed around for part XY and Z?

100% worth the watch.

Except for Gold, McConeghy has never really taken many chances with his characters in previous films, and it this one, he is highly predictable as well.

It seems Ritchie, much like other seasoned auteurs, has reached that magical point in his career where he no longer caters to audiences, who are calling the film "boring," or critics, who are attacking the film for being "offensive.

However I was also very bored, I couldn't believe how slow paced everything was.

Started off slow and became unwatchable.

Predictable .

The jokes are awful and boring.

Enjoyable, funny, innovative.

It does have a slow and confusing narrative beginning.

This film is very boring.

Yes, the writing is still a little overdone at times, there are some annoying moments/stereotypes to consider, and a few slow parts that could have been ironed out.

This film was entertaining, enjoyable and hilarious.

This posh English fantasy tail is phenomenally mixed by Hugh Grant's incredible acting-narration and helps bubble up what could have, at times, been an offensive mess, into an entertaining old-fashioned caper.

Provided you remember to check your brain at the door, it's seriously entertaining.

Thoroughly entertaining....

I found it very refreshing to watch something different and original, unlike all the latest remakes and sequels, so I definitely recommend it if you're looking for something different and entertaining to watch.

It wasn't as good as Scarface, but it was an enjoyable movie that had some moments of comedy wrapped up in a good old fashion drug gangsta movie.

Worth watching it...

A thrilling classic modernized gangster movie .

The cast is brilliant, it's incredibly stylized and the dialogue is snappy, witty and super Tarantino esque.

A mildly entertaining...

Save your money folks and give this a wide berth.

Something entertaining can quickly turn into something pretty annoying if the storytelling isn't well-balanced.

It's smart, confusing, well written, unpredictable and funny.

The first 30-40 minutes of the film drags a good bit and is by far the most confusing part of the film.

Superb script and direction; great actors and hugely enjoyable.

Does it get a little pretentious and precious?

" Well, of course it wasn't, but I really enjoyed it.

Watching Matthew McConaughey attempting to keep up with the talent in this latest Ritchieflick (the director who has to have his own sub-genre) is entertaining in itself.

The Gentlemen is cool, over-the-top British, and has exciting twists and turns mixed with action.

I would say it was slow at parts...

Every so often you get a flashback and every so often that flashback has some vaguely interesting or exciting material.

Too many fun and enjoyable moments to be seen on this movie.

Fun and thrilling to the end ...

The labyrinthine plot has all the trappings of an intriguing thriller.

Really entertaining movie.

Guy Ritchie's direction was outstanding, and he uses the camera in such a way which made it engrossing time watch.

I was on the edge of my seat guessing at what will transpire next.

The chap playing Jay was very good and Colin Farrell was his usual enjoyable self.

Waste of time .

Although it's still very complicated, admittedly it can't see much depth, it's definitely a very enjoyable entertainment cool film.

Original, entertaining, packed with hilarious gems.

7.5 / 10Labeled and marketed as "ACTION CRIME COMEDY" when 95% of the movie is just boring TALKIE TALK TALK.

You can tell he wants to be a Tarantino or Scorsese, but unlike those auteurs, he swims in a rather more shallow pool of human behaviour, that inhabited by a kind of watery species of cliche.

what a waste of time .

A very well made entertaining film.

Great movie, sharp, intelligent and best of all Entertaining.

Definitely worth watching though.

The witty dialogue, the fashion, and the British slum/gangster/grime music culture the movie creates is wildly entertaining.

Entertaining crime caper .

Go, have a thoroughly enjoyable time!

Fun & Entertaining .

The pacing skips from slow to fast to somewhat interesting to less so.

Great but with a really slow pace.....

Another Guy Ritchie masterpiece, what a mindblowing movie, unpredictable till the very end and the cheery on the pie is Mathew McConaughey's brilliant portrayal of Mickey Pearson.

A thoroughly entertaining English gangster movie, great storyline, acting and direction just about perfect.

It felt hollow and contrived in comparison to his more iconic earlier works.

The rest of it was too long and too boring and trying wayyyy too hard.

I was most impressed however with Charlie Hunham as Ray, a man with obsessive compulsive disorder yet when he's placed into a difficult situation to retrieve a clients daughter in a place he would prefer to avoid, he completely commands the situation and it makes for compelling viewing.

In comparison to Snatch and Lock stock the story is weak and drawn out in parts.

There are a lot of things I liked about this movie, but I have to be honest, throughout a lot of scenes I was bored.

Amazing writing from Ritchie - fast paced, witty, funny.

A razor sharp script moves this film at a lightning pace thanks to the creative storytelling and a snappy trademark dialogue.

It might be formulaic and overly familiar, but it's also immensely enjoyable.
