Storyline

After seven years in solitary, Jake Green is released from prison. In the next two years, he amasses a lot of money by gambling. He's ready to seek his revenge on Dorothy (Mr. D) Macha, a violence-prone casino owner who sent Jake to prison. He humiliates Macha in front of Macha's lieutenants, leaves, and keels over. Doctors tell him he has a rare disease and will die in three days; Macha also puts a hit out on him. Loan sharks, Zack and Avi, demand Jake's cash and complete fealty in return for protection. Jake complies, and through narration and flashbacks, we watch him through at least three days of schemes, danger, and redemption. Who is his greatest enemy? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Jake Green: One thing I've learned in the last seven years: in every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former.

Style way over substance
14 November 2006 | by somfSee all my reviews

I never saw "Swept Away", so I can say that this is the first Guy Ritchie film that I did not care for. I love his style, and that frantic editing and pace that was so wonderful in Snatch and lock stock is utilized in this film as well. When I first heard about "Revolver" and the talent involved, I found it hard to believe that is was not being released in the US. I don't find that so hard to believe anymore. As it opens, one feels they are in for a terrific two hours. Within ten minutes that feeling begins to fade. At the one hour point, I continued to watch to see what the heck Mr. Ritchie was trying to say. I respect him as a filmmaker. If I didn't, I may not have even finished this train wreck of a film. David Lynch, Ritchie is not. Well maybe Lynch on a bad day. I read a couple of comments where the reviewers said that it became clearer upon multiple viewings. I say get a life. I gave the film a 5 because I enjoyed Jason Stratham, Ray Liotta and Andre Benjamin. I thought Pastore was terrible. I also enjoyed the shooter character that looks like Stanley Tucci. There were several brilliant scenes. But again, the story is a total mess. Really.
