Guy Ritchie is a director of different genres, his story is something in between reality and fiction. The Gentleman movie also has a well-detailed story of a gentleman with the best thing being how he directed his story. How he placed all his characters efficiently in the story

The Gentleman movie cast is one of its major attractions. Let’s have a look at my favorite cast from The Gentleman.

Mathew McConaughy

“He’s good looking, he’s gorgeous, he’s golden age, he’s a proper handsome cunt. His name is Mickey Pearson.” This is how Mathew is introduced in the movie. He is a handsome cunt who has started his career in marijuana since high school.

Like his character, Mathew acted like the king and what we see more is his anger. When he says, “There’s only one rule in this jungle. When the lion’s hungry he eats” I was watching a new face of Mathew. He trusted no one, took care of all his workers, and loved his wife. He is a gentleman.

Charlie Hunnican

After casting Charlie in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, there was no question of why he is in this movie. Charlie played the role of Raymond who is the butler of Mickey Pearson and looks after his business. He is so protective and caring towards Mickey. Scene, where Mickey is rash driving. How he puts his seat belt, was adorable. This type of friend is what I need in my life. I am a fan of Charlie because of his jaw-dropping physique.

“It’s one thing I will never understand, it’s why you get addicted to heroin. If there’s one drug you should not chase, it is the dirty dragon. If you lot are unhappy, you should share your thoughts with your friends. Nice friends, talk it out, find a positive solution. But, no, all you lot choose squalor. Drowning in your liberal white guilt.”

Raymond

This saying of Ray teaches a lot about this generation and I agree completely to him.

Ray is a silent character who looks after his boss Mickey and has everything planned like a mastermind. One of his best scenes of Ray, according to me is that hip hop chase for mobile. I love Ritchie for these types of scenes when he mixes the music and adrenaline of the movie together. Ray was totally savage when he took out his gun and open fires in the air.

Colin Farrell

Colin Farell the coach is my favorite character of The Gentleman movie. He is a simple trainer who trains roadside boys to live their life. They also rob for him but he is not a gangster, but how he deals with the problems is funny. By mistake, he gets involved in Mickey’s business and do some interesting favors for him.

The scene where Coach and Ray talk about Phu-uc. I loved the conversation and expression on Ray’s face trying to figure out, what the fuck is phu-uc. That something hilarious, that scene is on the list of my favorite scenes.

Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant played the role of Fletcher, an investigator. Fletcher is the key to this story who starts, joins, and ends all the events. He brings down all the plans and plots of every character for a sum of money. He is referred to as black cunt, not cause of his skin color but his dark soul by Ray.

I am not a huge fan of Hugh Grant but now I am a fan of Fletcher. How he made his character so interesting that you will enjoy listening to his narrations while watching his face. Ray and Fletcher share a comedy relationship and a few scenes where he flirts with Ray were hilarious.

The Gentleman review(according to me)

Now I am going, to sum up, all the points why The Gentleman movie is such an interesting piece of direction for me.

  • The starting of the movie, how it starts with an incident and movie intro with song Cumberland Gap by Dawid Rawlings. It came out to be a perfect combination leaving me chanting Cumberland Gap is the Devil of Gap for the next two days.
  • Cast of the movie was one of the reasons why I was so much excited about The Gentleman. And from beginning to end all the characters played there part amazingly.
  • How the movie was presented, from gangsters to betrayal to revenge. The complete screenplay was beautiful, thrilling, and funny.
  • The songs and the dialogues were add-on to this crisp and comedy entertainer.

Songs played in The Gentleman

And my personal most liked one ” Shimmy Shimmy Ya “ is played in the chase scene of Raymond.

Dialogue’s in The Gentleman

The Gentleman is full of savage dialogues which make each character more astonishing.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Are you a Guy Ritchie fan? (Easter eggs and deep analysis of Guy Ritchie)

Let’s see that you noticed these things in the movie or not. While watching the movie I came across different suspicious things. Here I am, going to mention all of them including the easter eggs.

the gentleman movie

When the movie starts we see Mickey in a bar and he orders a pint and a pickled egg. We can clearly see that the man offers him beer of Gritchie Brewing Company. Gritchie Brewing Company is a small independent brewery owned by Guy Ritchie.

If you are a Guy Ritchie fan and follow his movies. You will directly connect the direction where Mickey’s car is hit by the truck. It was the same as in his previous movie ” Rock n Rolla “.

the gentleman movie

In the climax when Mickey asks Mathew to cut a pound of flesh from his body. Also mentioning that if it is a gram less than a pound he will not accept it. This incident is inspired by Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice. At the climax of Merchant of Venice also this same thing happens.

the gentleman movie

At the end when private investigator Fletcher is pitching the idea about a movie to the director. We can see the poster of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. in the background. Surprising was that Fletcher was standing in Miramax office, and Miramax studio didn’t produced or distributed The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Though Miramax produced The Gentleman.

It can be a hint from Guy Ritchie that we can have a sequel to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. in few years.

I hope you like my deep analysis of The Gentleman and do tell me what do you think about this movie.
