There were no table readings for this film. Instead, Guy Ritchie had the cast do full dress rehearsals with a multi-angle camera crew. Ritchie would then review footage of the scenes and revise the script accordingly. See more »
When Michael selects a song on the jukebox, a 45 rpm record loads and plays. The song heard is from a 2017 album and was never released as a single on 45 or otherwise. This is also odd because all of the titles on jukebox the selection list are from the late 1950s to early 1960s. See more »
It's Guy Ritchies Best since Snatch, it's where he is most playful and comfortable in a film genre he knows well.
The Cast is perfectly picked, especially Hugh Grant giving a different but yet so funny performance.
Sit back and enjoy 2 hours of a British crime drama, which doesn't take itself too serious
If we hadn't had lock stock or snatch then this would possibly looked at in a more classic Ritchie film so don't expect it to be as great as those.
