Trivia

Some facts from the wardrobe department:
  • Colin Farrell's glasses were vintage, sourced from a private eye wear company.
  • Farrell and The Toddlers wear custom track suits.
  • Hugh Grant's glasses were Ray Bans. The costume department replaced the frames' lenses to red-tinted ones in order to give his character a sinister feel. According to Hugh Grant, dark red therefore became a signature of the character, leading to his oxblood coat and overall color scheme.
  • Guy Richie loved Henry Golding's Louboutin shoes so much he redirected the scene photography to showcase them in frame.
  • All of Charlie Hunnam's shoes were custom for the film.
  • According to Colin Farrell, the reason why Coach and The Toddlers dress similarly is because Coach wanted to give the boys, mostly wayward misfits, "a sense of uniformity."

Goofs

In the first scene we meet Rosalind there is a shot of her entering her car garage from behind, in this shot the red soles of her Christian louboutin stilettos are clear for all to see, moments later when she leaves her office, she is wearing what appear to be the same stilettos but they seem to now be black/normal on their underside.

Snap, Crackle, and Oink
2 January 2020 | by faerlianSee all my reviews

Whip-smart 1-2-3 dialogue and film-editing, tension, some seriously laugh-out-loud moments, and a killer unorthodox script equals The Gentlemen.

There are a lot of similarities to Knives Out within, but it would be a disservice to say it's only a Knives Out - Guy Ritchie version, because this film deserves to stand on its own merits.

It's violent, it goes out of its way to be as anti-PC as possible, and its most definitely not for children under the age of 15...but most of all, it's highly enjoyable. All the performances are excellent. I can't fault this movie in any way. Maybe it isn't the bestest movie evar, but I can safely say it will be one of the best of 2020.

Charlie Hunnam is legitimately scary. McConaughey nails his role. Colin Farrell has a great comedic role. All the accents are spot on. Please give me more of this.
