Matthew McConaughey plays an American expat by the name of Mickey Pearson. Mickey built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. Word gets out that Mickey is looking to cash out of the business forever. This triggers plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal Mickey’s empire out from under him and his lovely wife. The story unfolds from there…
Plain and simple I think the movie is awesome! I was thoroughly entertained! My favorite character was Ray (Charlie Hunnam), who was Mickey’s right-hand man. He appeared quiet and unassuming, but was a “Bad Ass” when necessary.
“The Gentlemen” was never short on intrigue. The story continued to roll right up to the end. At times the movie was a bit bloody, but that is to be expected given the story and plot.
This is a Guy Ritchie production, you must pay attention so you do not miss anything because the story goes back and forth.
If you like your Crime Dramas with a small side of Comedy, I highly recommend “The Gentlemen”.
This is a 4 Star Movie!
My movie going experience was enhanced today because my brand new husband went with me!! For those of you who did not know, One week ago today I got married! Going forward from time to time my husband may attend the movies with me making my reviewing experience more fun!!
Finally “Molly’s Game” has opened. I have been waiting for this movie for months and it does not disappoint!!
“Molly’s Game” is based on the true story of Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain), an Olympic Down-Hill Skier who ran the most exclusive “High Stakes Poker Game” operation for over a decade before she was arrested in the middle of the night by the FBI.
Molly’s players included some of Hollywood’s Royalty, Sports Stars, Big Business Tycoons and unbeknownst to her, members of the Russian Mob.
Molly’s only ally turned out to be her criminal defense attorney Charlie Jaffey (Idris Elba) who learned that there was a lot more to Molly than what the tabloids reported. The story unfolds from there…
“Molly’s Game” is awesome!! It’s suspenseful, intriguing and edge of your seat entertaining. I love Jessica Chastain and she does not disappoint!! She makes it up as she goes along. The only down turn of the movie was there wasn’t enough “poker play” shown.
Molly’s Game was worth the wait. You should check it out!!
This is a 4 Star Movie!
