Storyline

After seven years in solitary, Jake Green is released from prison. In the next two years, he amasses a lot of money by gambling. He's ready to seek his revenge on Dorothy (Mr. D) Macha, a violence-prone casino owner who sent Jake to prison. He humiliates Macha in front of Macha's lieutenants, leaves, and keels over. Doctors tell him he has a rare disease and will die in three days; Macha also puts a hit out on him. Loan sharks, Zack and Avi, demand Jake's cash and complete fealty in return for protection. Jake complies, and through narration and flashbacks, we watch him through at least three days of schemes, danger, and redemption. Who is his greatest enemy? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

Although the film is set in a fairly generic American urban setting, in the scenes in a moving car in which Sorter (Mark Strong) talks about missing his shots, the actual scenery outside the car windows is that seen from a car heading east on Harcourt Road, Central District, in Hong Kong. At about 13:58 for instance we see the Bank of America Tower's Chinese and English signage very clearly in the background, a few seconds later we see I.M. Pei's Bank of China building behind Strong, and just after that the very distinctive shape of the two towers of what was originally Bond (now Lippo) Centre. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Jake Green: One thing I've learned in the last seven years: in every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former.

A genuine stinker
19 September 2008 | by (Some lonely place.) – See all my reviews

I'd give this a zero rating if that were possible.

First, to address the comments that say "oh this is incredibly complex" and so-forth. No it isn't! It's about the dumbest thing ever made. Honestly, if you don't get it, it's because there is nothing to get. Guy Ritchie can bang on about how it's to do with the complexity of the human soul and an existentialist critique of modern society, but it patently isn't. It's like a thirteen year old attempting to write a suicide note, with all the subtlety of a year twelve English poem.

Essentially the story is about a gangster type Zoo reading bloke who wants to get some money back from another shifty Nuts reading gangster bloke who likes to walk around in his pants (Ray Liotta proving his career is dead). The reason for this is not specifically made clear (probably because the writers thought "ah, screw it, it doesn't matter") but rather we are given hints through the central character's inane voice-over.

Thus Jason Statham endlessly mumbles absolute garbage like "He is the bad guy, but how can you be responsible for all the evil in the world if you don't exist?" That's a genuine quote by the way.

And so continues the movie. Lots of superfluous swearing, lots of shooting, lots of stagger cuts (they've been done before, Ritchie!)and absolutely no plot or character development. Add to which some hilarious mis-casting and you are left with a genuinely brainless, often misogynist idiotic mess by the man-child Guy Ritchie. Go away you vile, odious, talentless little man! This movie will appeal to readers of The Sun or Nuts, and if you read The Sun or Nuts, you have absolutely no right to comment on anything at all.

This movie is a must watch, in the same sense as a Richard Littlejohn neo-fascist diatribe is a must read, for all the wrong reasons.
