    The movie's onslaught of psychobabble is the annoyance most likely to ruin your evening. Imagine getting stuck on a ski lift with Dr. Phil for nearly two hours. show more

    Guy Ritchie's Revolver premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival two years ago September. That's 26 months on a shelf somewhere, depriving moviegoers the thrill of jaw-droppingly awful Ray Liotta line readings, of bloody shoot-outs, bags of money, cutaways to frosty babes sucking on lollipops, and even a bit of violent anime. show more

    A few scenes are stylish enough to amuse, but they all add up to nothing - leaving you ten bucks short and feeling like a sucker. show more

    The film's pretentious style and fractured storytelling preclude any audience involvement in the coy melodrama. show more

    Good grindhouse fun until a last act that's like a meeting of a psychoanalysts' convention. show more

    Part gambling heist, part graphic novel, part metaphysical mumbo jumbo, Revolver is a mess of many colors, few of them satisfying. show more

    The problem with Revolver is that it is Ritchie's first attempt at a ''serious'' look at the underworld, but the result is so pretentious and muddled it's almost a little embarrassing. show more

    Ritchie wraps this folderol in cinematic razzle-dazzle, including animated sequences, reverse motion, trompe l'oeil production design and tricky lighting. But it's still claptrap. show more

    The latest Guy Ritchie shoot-em-up, is a joke. You laugh with it but mostly at it. show more

    Surprise of surprises, Revolver turns out to be worse than "Swept Away" - and not just by a little bit. show more

    What a terrible movie, has to rate as one of the worst films ofthe last ten years. How can a film with so many greatactors turn out to be so bad? Ritchie's first two films were good, no exactly the Godfather, but were entertaining. Whathe is trying to achieve with this film escapes me? For those who enjoyed Ritchie's earlier work, buy LayerCake instead, which was directed by his best friend. Milesbetter than Revolver.
