Top Five Guy Ritchie Films

Updated on September 6, 2017

Top Five

Guy Ritchie has done ten films and won multiple awards, but which are the best five?

5. Snatch

Snatch was Guy's second film and still is one of the best but I think that it is just too similar to Lock Stock.

The whole story of interfering with the underworld is very similar to Lock Stock as well as the ending of the film and how everything gets sorted. If this was not the next Guy Ritchie film or had been released much later then it would have been a much better standalone film. But in saying that Snatch is still a fantastic film.

A lot of the cast are the same to Lock Stock but there are all a lot of new actors cast and they bring a great deal to the film. The new aspects of Londoners interacting with travelers is a new aspect that has not been seen in films and it pays off very well. This film made a big impact and does continue too.

It has the typical Guy Ritchie camera work, twists, turns and what the hell just happened moments. This is a must see for Guy Richie fans. In general I would say it's a must see film even if it is just once.


4. King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

The newest film to date and although some people gave it a lot of hate I loved it.

This is a really new and fresh take on the King Arthur story, it's much darker, much more gritty and there is a lot of good action scenes. It is visually breathtaking, the models, textures, characters and environment have been made by the experts. The CGI is also really good and spotless.

There is a great cast and who interact with each other wonderfully. The acting is great, there are some big names, up and coming names and they all preform really well. Even though must people as like......hey Jax Teller is King now.

There were aspect from the King Arthur story missing, but this not King Arthur this is Guy Richie's King Arthur and the Guy style works sublimely. Is interpretation works well as a normal King story, but even better as King Arthur is thrown in to the Richie world.

The dark, gritty, ruthless, bloody world of King Arthur maybe not be the one you know, but it will be a one that you come to love with this film.



3. RocknRolla

Everybody wanted to be a RocknRolla when they were young and dreamed about it. But then again what is a real RocknRolla?

This is more of a modern day presentation of London, the housing states, the skyscrapers, housing block and the money to be made. This entrees a Russian billionaire, an old school gangster, the greedy accountant and a group of mates just trying to make a living.

The story of this is just another Guy Ritchie film, but you would be wrong. RocknRolla is done in such a way that you know it's a Guy Ritchie film but it feels different, feel more, feel new. The interpretation is so different that you happy to see it again and again.

Of course it would't be a Guy Ritchie film without the twist, turns and action. But it has the fresh feel all the way though and after ten years of his films this is a most welcome watch.

There are many different types of RocknrRolla's, a few types can be seen in this film. But we are still waiting for The Real RocknRolla..........Guy? Could we have an update please?

2. The Man from U.N.C.L.E

From TV to film, Guy takes an award winning TV show and makes it his own.

When this was announced people were up in arms "The British can't take our American show away". But then the film came out, it was loved, even by the Americans, the negativity stopped and turned to praises.

The take on the TV show worked really well, there was a lot of relation to the show, comments, cameos, suggestions and the setup. These worked real well as both a tribute and future of U.N.C.L.E.

The camera work was the new style Guy Ritchie. Having different sections of what was going on, what was coming, what has happen all worked superbly. This especially worked surprisingly well in the action scenes, have different positions of the fight made it surreal. This added to the excitement and thrill of the game.

The different personalities, structure and decisions worked better than expected. There was more of a back story then in the TV show which added to the film as well as the show.

Will there be another mission for the team? We will just have to wait and see.

1. Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

The first and the best.

Lock Stock is a masterpiece. It's a one of a kind film that had never been done before, the style, the story, the action, the comedy and it was the beginning of an different genre. This was Guy's first film and it certainly got him noticed, from then his career rocketed.

Lock Stock takes the different lives of Londoners and throws them in to a chaotic conundrum with only one way out......or so they thought. The twists, the turns make you want to watch to see what happens next and keeps you guessing. Because of this you get a real sense of feeling for the characters and what they have to do and go though to end the chaos.

The camera work is typical Guy Richice, the cast was not too well known at the time but they made it with this film. The story telling of all of Guy's films is sublime and engaging, but this was on another level, a new level of depth, a new level of interaction.

If you have not see Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels then watch it now........and remember its been emotional.

      I'm glad you liked King Arthur. The negative reviews kept me from watching it, but maybe I will check it out now. As far as Snatch - I am pretty sure he got the budget for it because the studio was interested specifically in a bigger budget Lock Stock. I would have to double check that, but I remember reading that way back when it came out. I only point that out, because I wouldn't hold the similarities against him. All that being said, my favorite of his is actually Sherlock Holmes.
