Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Fletcher (Hugh Grant) shows Ray (Charlie Hunnam) a video of a conversation at a football match. After it's over, and making a point, Fletcher places his left hand on Ray's thigh. Ray has his hands clasped together in front of him. When the scene cuts to a close-up, Ray's right hand is suddenly on his thigh, right behind Fletcher's hand, with no time for it to have moved there. See more »

Guy Richie back to his best
2 January 2020 | by pobratimSee all my reviews

After seeing the film at an advanced screening I was left pleasently surprised. It is one of the best crime films I have watched and the best from Guy Ritchie...even better than Snatch and Lock Stock, which is something.

From the acting to the story, cinematography, pacing, dialogue, humour and overall enjoyment I cannot fault it...10/10. Special credit goes to Colin Farrell and his acting.

We dont really get movies like this anymore. Movies these days are cheap money grabbers and superhero films. This is a whole different class of film
