I never saw "Swept Away", so I can say that this is the first Guy Ritchie film that I did not care for. I love his style, and that frantic editing and pace that was so wonderful in Snatch and lock stock is utilized in this film as well. When I first heard about "Revolver" and the talent involved, I found it hard to believe that is was not being released in the US. I don't find that so hard to believe anymore. As it opens, one feels they are in for a terrific two hours. Within ten minutes that feeling begins to fade. At the one hour point, I continued to watch to see what the heck Mr. Ritchie was trying to say. I respect him as a filmmaker. If I didn't, I may not have even finished this train wreck of a film. David Lynch, Ritchie is not. Well maybe Lynch on a bad day. I read a couple of comments where the reviewers said that it became clearer upon multiple viewings. I say get a life. I gave the film a 5 because I enjoyed Jason Stratham, Ray Liotta and Andre Benjamin. I thought Pastore was terrible. I also enjoyed the shooter character that looks like Stanley Tucci. There were several brilliant scenes. But again, the story is a total mess. Really.
