Are critics right about Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Gentlemen’ being ‘stained with racism’?

16 20 0

We’re only a week into 2020 and the PC-police are already on patrol for anything and everything that does not conform to their box checking standards.

The latest cultural target of this woke rage is Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Gentlemen’, the director’s return to the gangster genre after spending years making Hollywood blockbusters like ‘Sherlock Holmes’ and last year’s ‘Aladdin’.

In UK cinemas now and opening in US theaters on January 24, ‘The Gentlemen’ has been accused of being an “equal opportunity offender” and “stained with racism.”

‘The Gentlemen’ follows a gangster (Matthew McConaughey) as he runs into trouble trying to sell off his profitable drug empire in order to retire with his wife.

Like Ritchie’s early work, ‘The Gentlemen’ looks to be a ridiculous and fast-moving ensemble British crime movie with actors chewing the scenery.

Some critics are not amused though. It appears they believe Ritchie’s signature brand is a bit outdated for these culturally bubble-wrapped times.
