Writer/Director Guy Richie returns to the genre where he made his name, with this brash, loud and very un-PC action comedy that’s an absolute hoot from start to finish. Matthew McConaughey plays Mickey Pearson, a local crime lord done good and who is looking to sell-up and enjoy early retirement. This brings with it potential buyers and lots of headaches as rivals look to capitalise on the situation. Throw in a sleazy private eye (a brilliantly over-the-top Hugh Grant) looking to blackmail Mickey and you have a frantic, funny and altogether glorious crime caper full of quotable one-liners. Amazing support too from the excellent Colin Farrell, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Charlie Hunnam and Jeremy Strong.
