Film Preview: Revolver (2007)

Trailers (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Poster Rating: B

Review: While this four-tiered poster ignores the current trend in color schemes and uses those that wouldn’t normally be found together, the thing remains a prototypical genre flick in design.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: If it weren’t a Guy Ritchie film, the movie might actually be interesting. However, with his history, there’s no question it will turn out to be a turd. I like the concept, but really it’s just a tweak on other films of similar style. To add insult to injury, Jason Statham, who managed to make bad films successful, is starring, he’s wearing facial hair that may make him unrecognizable to those who know his face but don’t know his name.

Oscar Prospects:

Academy members don’t tend to like these types of movies. While they may enjoy being entertained, they don’t like the style of storytelling or the preponderance of violence that often figures into them. It’s often not violence for story’s sake but story for violence’s sake.
