After learning the secrets of manipulation, graft, and deceit while incarcerated, a recently released ex-convict sets into motion a complex revenge plot against the man who killed his sister-in-law and put him behind bars in maverick director Guy Ritchie's highly stylized crime drama. For seven long years, Jake Green (Jason Statham) has bided his time while learning the rules of the game from a chess master and a top con artist who shared adjacent cells. Macha (Ray Liotta) is the cold and calculated gangster who sent Jake up the river after ruthlessly ending the life of Jake's beloved sister-in-law. When Jake turns up at the casino and humiliates Macha on the floor for all to see, the seething gangster wastes no time in putting a hearty price on his old foe's head. Inexplicably saved from Macha's assassins by a pair who only identify themselves as Avi (Andre Benjamin) and Zach (Vincent Pastore), Jake isn't sure whether to trust his guardian angels or flee from them. The only thing Jake does know for sure is that his thirst for revenge grows stronger every day, and it won't be satisfied until Macha meets his maker. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I thought this was a pretty good movie. Acting was good and story line left a lot out and made you wonder why leading character did not die early in the movie. Jason Statham did one of his best acting jobs in this and great supporting cast.
First of all, I'm a huge Guy Ritchie fan so I expected it to be badass, but not this badass. Jason Statham, Andre 3000, Ray Liotta, and even Vincent Pastore were amazing and the plot was just as good. The movie itself was deep and carried with it a powerful psychological message that was emphasized at the ending. I highly highly highly highly recommend this film...especially if you like Ray Liotta in the buff.
Revolver has all the action, twisted plot lines, and all-star cast of characters that you expect from a Guy Ritchie movie..the difference in this one is the story and the religious and philosophical undertones. Jason Statham goes through intense internal turmoil, as does Ray Liotta, shedding a light on the root of evil everywhere; the human ego.
