    My first impression is that the American version is superior. While more ambitious, this original version also shows its pretentiousness more flagrantly. Whatever compromises were taken in further editing it seem to make it more cinematic and compelling (even if it's just a bunch of hokum, it's fun hokum), but I can't say for sure barring a proper rewatch.

    Probably too cerebral for its own good, but I still consider it one of the most underrated films in Guy Ritchie's filmography.

    At the very least, the film should be seen for how awesome Mark Strong is in his small supporting role.

    Starts good - good setup, cool soundtrack, decent action. After approx. 1 hour it gets weirder and weirder, ending in total crap.

    Typically I extend a lot of goodwill towards ambitious failures, and Revolver is most certainly that. But this isn’t the kind of ambitious failure that hints at glimmers of brilliance that are just slightly out of reach, Revolver is a film of such wildly misguided ambition that any narrative coherency is lost in translation. Because Ritchie didn’t make Revolver as another stylized crime caper, he loaded the film with allusions to numerology and the Kabbalah. Like…

    Like Ourobouros devouring its own tail, Revolver is a carrion film that crawls up Guy Ritchie’s own asshole and never comes out. It ultimately died up there and it stinks to high heaven, I tell you. By carrion, I mean it’s comprised of the deceased, miscellaneous scraps scavenged from better films and better directors. It is a shameless, low-rent rip-off that’s incompetently executed and insufferably dull.

    From what does it steal? The intra-psychic conflicts in Federico Fellini’s 8 ½ (1963),…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Fun and with a good cast, but I argue if the film really makes sense in the end. Add to this, there are some directional choices (I'm looking at you animated sequences) that don't make sense or seem to have purpose.

    I don’t know if this is a movie that is super smart and has many different layers that deserve to be analyzed or one that just pretends to be all that. Expecting a typical pre-Hollywood Guy Ritchie movie, full of dark humor, visual gimmicks and a crime plot that gets more and more convoluted until it all comes together in a beautiful way, I was caught offguard by the psychological puzzle approach.

    It’s definitely a fascinating thing to watch and…

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present a film so British that it is ostensibly named after an album by The Beatles, unless Guy Ritchie was so whipped by Madonna that he made a movie named after one of her songs years before the song came out. Boy, I might would consider quoting that song if I liked Madonna, didn't hate that song (No one thought to take out Madonna and Lil Wayne while they were supposedly in the same studio at…

    The UK version was more eclectic and philosophical. But both are really really cool either way. Also guy ritchie's most underrated films.
