I’ll just throw my box of stuff right down these

stairsA Guy Richie film,fuck where do i begin?I think if you’re going to watch one of his films do just that.Watch ONLY one because they all have the exact same plot.There’s two groups ,good guys and bad guys.The good guys get fucked over by the bad guys and have X amount of days to sort it.They finally sort it.They they get ripped off or there’s a shoot out.Things look bad and finally it all works out okay in the end.All the while this formula is set in a London gangster scene.Throw in 200 classic indie tracks and wahey you have a Guy Richie film.On wait i forgot,you need a voice over because evidently you’re not being spoon fed enough.No character development.No fatal flaws.No nothing.I find his films tripe and I’ve seen them all.But i can see how they appeal to the masses.Load enough music and drug references and Joe-public will like it.
