Revolver – Confusing!

Hey all…

Still continuing the theme of late reviews… Saw Revolver, a Guy Ritchie movie starring Jason Statham and Ray Liotta. This was a very interesting movie, but too warped for me to enjoy I think.

[rating:2/4]

This is one screwed up mind game of a movie. Take Ocean’s 11 and mash it up with Memento and you might have something close. I’m still not sure what the heck the movie was about.

Here‘s the IMDB link.

Jake Greene (Statham) is released from prison after seven years and wants to make the crime boss (Mr. Macha, played by Liotta) pay who had him put away. When Macha tries to have Greene killed, Greene gets help from an odd duo.

What’s this movie about? Heck if I know.

I believe (to some degree) that it was an exploration of the ego’s need to control the id. And how that can be expanded into hustling and mind games with a mark.

But really I have no clue. I kept watching, hoping for things to become clear – but they stayed pretty murky.

So I’m giving it 2/4. Interesting, but too wacked to enjoy.

Good luck if you watch it. Maybe you can tell me what it was about. 🙂
