This film gets better and better with each viewing. The catch being that it starts out bizarrely poor.
It really is a lot of philosphy and grandstanding (Guy Ritchie apparently mixed in a lot of Kabbalah references in there, amongst other things), and will ultimately disappoint viewers who expected something else, but expectations are not things filmmakers have to meet to create what they want.

There was a CG scene in there that has not aged well at all, considering it was the equivalent of a baby being born in it's 30's.

Maybe Ritchie's best work.
This is a FILM, not a movie.

This one is a little deep, but the storyline is truly engaging and wholly original. Excellent and entertaining.

I like Jason Statham movies, I like Guy Ritchie movies, but this one!!!!! Very confusing, don't think it's worth a second viewing to see if I can "figure it out". 104 minutes of my life lost forever.

If any of you have ever studied under the Tutelage of any of the great teachers of the Toltec Philosophy espousing the three Masteries:
1.Mastery of Awareness
2.Mastery of Transformation
and
3. The Mastery of Love
This movie will be a wonderful journey for you.
A Spiritual Journey cannot be "figured out" using the cognitive senses.

Story is convoluted. In the beginning, I gave it the benefit of the doubt and just followed along. Then it started to get way too philosophical and even existential. At the end, the movie simply tried too hard to be intellectual and just ended up being full of itself. This is a Guy Ritchie movie, and it has elements of Guy's style all over. But it's nowhere near as good as some of his other movies. This is also a Jason Statham movie, and it's also nowhere near as good as some of his other movies. I would say, however, that this movie stretched the acting chops of both Jason Statham and a well-cast Ray Liotta. There you have it.

I enjoyed this movie very much even though the story is a little weak. The acting in this is very good for this type of movie, and the directing is fantastic. I would highly recommend this to fans of Jason Statham as well as to fans of action flicks.

Jake Green: One thing I've learned in the last seven years: in every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former.
