I wanted to watch a new Guy Ritchie gangster movie, and that's what I got to watch! But I also watched a movie with a framing device that was really hard to get on board with and, like, nine endings each more convoluted than the last - one of which was a Mel-Brooksian meta-ending with a VERY surprising logo on the building. [Note: If you're gonna throw a Man From U.N.C.L.E. poster in the back and go this far with a choice, why didn't Ritchie just play the 'producer' role himself? Not sure if that would have made it better or worse]

Anyway all the racist/homophobic/beastiality 'jokes' weren't exactly my cup of tea but this movie coasts on a lot of charm from it's cast; I'm lovin' post-Paddington 2 Hugh Grant, glad Henry Golding's getting more leading work, and I would pay to just watch Colin Farrell recite the phone book.
