Amazon.com

This curious fourth film from Guy Ritchie returns the writer-director to familiar gangster territory following his disastrous remake of Swept Away, which starred Ritchie’s wife, Madonna. Jason Statham, a Ritchie regular, stars as an ex-convict named Jake Green, whose strategy for bankrupting a casino owner/crime boss named Macha (Ray Liotta)--whom Jake holds responsible for his incarceration--results in Macha ordering him killed. Enter a pair of other criminals (Vincent Pastore, Andre Benjamin) with a plan of their own, preventing the hit on Jake but telling him he has a fast-acting disease that will soon take its toll. From there, an increasingly convoluted gangster tale becomes a fascinating if often silly movie about Jake’s descent into possible madness while he simultaneously ponders the art of defeating one’s enemies and communing with God. Ritchie is indeed in a serious vein, but he doesn’t hold back on his unique sense of stylish fun, outfitting each character with memorable dialogue and behavioral traits. Standing out in a crowded pack of colorful underworld types is Liotta’s villain, who sympathetically conveys an all-too-human level of despair while wearing eyeliner and bikini underwear. The film becomes wearing after a while: Ritchie might be less interested in the crime genre than he once was. But there are plenty of fresh ideas here, even if they don’t always fit perfectly together the way Ritchie’s catchy debut, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, did. --Tom Keogh

Amazon.com Exclusive Interview with Jason Statham

We had the pleasure of talking with Jason Statham (The Transporter, Snatch, The Italian Job) about Revolver, his new film with director Guy Ritchie. Here’s a taste of what he had to say, and you can hear more in the February edition of the Amazon Wire Podcast.

Describe Revolver for people who have yet to see the film:
I would say it’s a movie that’s not to be confused with the likes of Lock Stock or Snatch if you have ever seen any of the previous Guy Ritchie movies, it’s not to be confused with that kind of a film. It’s a little bit more of a serious sort of psychological thriller… about being able to smash what controls you, but at the same time it’s all set within a world of ya know, violence, ya know that sexy shiny world that Guy Ritchie creates.
Do you see comparisons between Lock Stock, Snatch and this film as a good thing or a bad thing?
Well look, he’s made two terrific films, two great black comedies, do you want him to go and make another one as well? Sometimes you have to do something a little bit different… you can’t please everyone.
You’ve carried a lot of other movies, action movies, where there’s explosions and fast cars, but this film is really held together by your presence, and it’s a totally different mood. Did you you feel a lot of pressure on your performance as Jake to carry the picture?
Um, I mean, no, it’s best not to try and focus on that really. But obviously if you haven’t got your usual bells and whistles to rely upon, then you have to try and dig it out from somewhere else.
What did you draw from your own experiences in preparing for this movie?
You might know from reading other stuff that I used to work on street corners hustling, or conning people if you like, so I understood the psychology of that and what you need to do to make somebody sort of bend over and succumb to your will, it’s a very simple set of rules… there’s so many ways that you can be sort of lured down a certain road and it’s all about making decisions, and if you’re aware of what is leading you, you can make the right decision at the right time.
--Rachel, Amazon Movies & TV

Product Description

Director Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels) brings you this no holds barred urban, crime-thriller featuring an all-star cast of gangster movie icons including Jason Statham (London, Collateral), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas, John Q), Vincent Pastore (Made, TV's The Sopranos) and Outkast's André Benjamin (Idlewild, Four Brothers). Jake Green is a hotshot gambler, long on audacity and short on common sense. He's rarely allowed to play in any casino because he is a winner and has taken in so much money over the years. He is the only client of his accountant and older brother Billy. One night, Jake, Billy and their other brother Joe are invited to sit in on a private game, where Jake is expected to lose to Dorothy Macha, a crime boss and local casino owner who can't play for squat, but always wins because people are too scared to beat him. Jake isn't afraid of Macha, and not only beats Dorothy in a quick game of chance, but takes every possible opportunity to insult the man. Jake and his brothers leave the game, and Macha puts out the order for a hit on Jake, who ends up working for and being protected by a pair of brothers, Avi and Zack, who are out to take Macha down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Edited to minor disappointment March 19, 2008
Format:DVD
I had originally seen Revolver on it's opening night in local cinema in England. That movie I saw there was a five star movie. When it was released in the UK as a DVD, I pick up a copy at a nearby HMV. It was the same awesome movie I saw in the theatre. Now, I'm back in the USA and I hear a region 1 version is finally available. I purchased it out of convenience. I thought a couple scenes seemed short, but when the movie ended where it did, I started checking the deleted scenes. No Joy! Watching this version, you are left with a much different message and no sense of closure.

I don't think this edit terribly ruined the movie, but I seriously question the motive behind it. I would be shocked if it was Mr. Richie's decision.

Now, for those fans of "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch," you may not like this movie. It depends on what your tastes are. Fans of David Lynch's "Lost Highway" or "Inland Empire" might warm to this film a little better. I would say the movie falls somewhere between the two camps.

Guy Richie spells out quite a bit for you, but he leaves a lot open to interpetation and analysis. I applaud the fact the director doesn't spoon feed it to you.

On a purely visceral level, he wows the audience with an arsenal visual effects. Fortunately, this not distract from the story.

However, I cannot emphasize how much better the original UK version is. I hope that somewhere down the road a more complete package of the movie is released.

Cheers!

This film is a perfect case of how a filmaker can be crucified for doing something completely different, intellectual, and to experiment, and push his style even further beyond most people's comprehension. This film is a masterpiece, period. This is the biggest psychological ride you will take since " The Usual Suspects". You'll probably have to have two viewings to fully inhale the mastery of this story, the whole film is a chess game of self exploration, with a serious, and stylish noirish comic book feel, especially from it's charecters. This is not Snatch, and this is not Lock, Stock, this is Guy Ritchie executing one of the smartest films I have ever seen in my life. Don't listen to what you've heard, people are in LOVE with Snatch, and Lock Stock, and just want to see it copied by him over, and over, that's why we have the sub par "Rock-N-Rolla" . Guy Ritchi, as well as Jason Statham prove that their bigger than that, and that they should keep moving forward, and not backwards (Rock-N-Rolla, and Jason's hollywood action fare).

Format:DVD
This movie is a completely different beast than 'Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels', and 'Snatch'. I enjoyed both of those movies immensely. But Revolver is quite unique to any movie I have seen.

I actually saw this movie a few years ago. It was released in the UK and Europe in 2005 in theatres and DVD. I purchased a copy online. I wondered at the time why it hadn't been released in the U.S.

Firstly, I cannot say much about the story, because I don't want to give anything away. It's that type of movie. Reminded me of the first time I saw 'Fight Club'. I said, "what the f---?" But I knew I'd just witnessed something pretty awesome. Definitely a movie you have to see twice.

I would really emphasize that to anyone interested in this film. It REQUIRES multiple viewings. I figured the movie out midway through the second watch. But it took several viewings to fully understand. Also, seeing other reviewers on different sites when the movie originally came out, it was definitely those who watched it several times to understand it that fell in love with 'Revolver'.

A warning here for some of you: lots of violence and blood and profanity. If that's alright with you, the movie is a thrill to watch. It tries some different things that really worked for me. Excellent sound editing, with the gritty voice over by Jason Statham. The editing is frantic. I have to say, the Elevator Scene, you'll know what I am referring to after viewing, is one of the most intense movie scenes I've ever seen.

That scene, and the finale. The final scene. In a word, INTENSE. This movie really goes out with a bang. One of my favorite all-time endings. Ray Liotta, fantastic. Great to see him with a top notch performance. Statham carries the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, Polished Guy Ritchie Film March 23, 2008
Format:DVD
When the name Guy Ritchie is attached to a film, the audience can depend on lots of action, violence, crisp dialog, and nail-biting sequences: his films have a 'look' and a manner that could easily be trademarked. In REVOLVER, Ritchie keeps all of those elements, but also adds the bite of challenging the audience to keep abreast of what is actually happening in the mayhem that unfolds, and it is this new element of psychological twisting of characters that makes the film so successful. It doesn't hurt that the cast contains some excellent performances by some of the very best actors of the action genre of films.

Jake Green (Jason Statham) is released from prison where he has served time in solitary confinement, by his own choice, enabling him to concentrate of the evils of graft and corruption and the deadly games people can play that call for revenge. He is cocky, wily, and full of tricks as he becomes involved in a master con game with one Dorothy Macha (Ray Liotta), the man who was responsible for his imprisonment. Macha is determined to take Jake down, but Jake falls into a 'partnership' with two bizarre characters - Avi (André Benjamin) and Zach (Vincent Pastore)- and begins to explore his own identity and apply those surprises to his compulsion to destroy the seemingly implacable Macha. How this redirection of evil and revenge unfolds is the chess game strategy of the film. To relate more of the plot would destroy the pleasure of the audience participation the film demands.

Ritchie wrote the screenplay with Luc Besson and the result is a story that manages to confuse while it entertains.
