The Gentlemen

Guy Ritchie’s “The Gentlemen” reads like a tall tale, full of exaggeration and embellishment, in which the narrator expects you to pay for his bar at the end. The narrator is a smart private detective named Fletcher (Hugh Grant), who begins blackmailing people with a script he wrote. The plot is called “BUSH”, bush is a euphemism for “cannabis” and is a complex story about the “turf wars” in the cannabis business. Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) is an American from the year
 
who sees opportunity in the dwindling British aristocracy. Mickey loves his wife and is ready to retire from the marijuana business.Two rivals emerge as potential buyers: a Jewish-American billionaire and a Chinese gangster named Dry Eye. Colin Farrell’s “trainer” is an Irishman who runs a boxing club. Mickey’s right-hand man is Ray (Charlie Hunnan), a mild-mannered man who looks like an office worker until you see him in action.

We learn about Mickey’s plans and their inevitable outcome. through a script written by sleazy private investigator and aspiring screenwriter Fletcher (Hugh Grant).The scenario, of course, is blackmail, which Fletcher hopes will get the better of Mickey. Fletcher is a parasite, one of those tabloid “writers” who like to “know” everything and treat people and their reputations as disposable. Hugh Grant has become a formidable actor in recent years, making the most of his choices. The one-two punch of “Paddington 2” and “A Very English Scandal” is a perfect example of this, because Grant uses all the other acting muscles that aren’t normally required of him. uses, and he’s very enjoyable in a largely exhibition role. Mickey Pearson may be the lead but Fletcher has the last laugh.
