01-14-10: Guy Ritchie's Revolver

REVOLVER (2005) **1/2
D: Guy Ritchie. S: Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Vincent Pastore, Andre Benjamin.

Guy Ritchie brings us another gangster pic, except more convoluted, more confusing and not very fulfilling.  Bottomline, it doesn't make any sense which really affects the overall enjoyment of the film.

This is one of those films where you can't really say what worked and what didn't because it will give away too much plot.

Jason Statham gets out of prison and returns to town to settle a score with a casino kingpin.  In the process, he meets up with two men who "offer" their assisstance to get the job down.

It was an interesting film that sadly didn't come together in the end.
