“You could practice with your hands for exactly the same amount of hours, but that still wouldnu0026#39;t make you Liberace. Some people, whether its cooking, tennis, or snooker, seem to put balls in pockets with ease. And so it is with some actors.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn this film, High Grant and Colin Farrell shine, and they have some big hitters around them.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf youu0026#39;ve seen a Guy Ritchie film before, you know exactly what you are getting. Fast edits, narrative overlay in slow motion, punchy dialogue with multiple storylines, and this film does the usual. In some ways its directing style detracts from the film as a whole. Static camera, actors on their marks, quick shots, twenty cuts, fast speaking, and Ritchie letting you know you are watching a Ritchie film. But I still like it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd the reason was Hugh and Colin. They shine in every scene, no matter where they are in the shot, you cant help but look at them, If there is a sequel, make it about these two, the Sutch and Bumdance of London, and it will win everything.”
