Revolver (2005)

A British French crime thriller directed by Guy Ritchie, starring Jason Statham, Ray Liotta and Andre Benjamin.
A con-man gets out of jail and there is conflict over a card game. He goes to work for loan sharks who use him to play a casino owner off against a drug dealer.
Not too shabby. The plot held my attention because it contained non-linear sections and made the viewer question the reality of what was happening. The characters were acted well. I liked the range of characters and how they all fit into their roles. The video was very dark in most places, but not underexposed or unclear. That's a pretty nifty trick to pull off and I've seen it fouled up plenty of times. The special effects were limited to some creative editing, but it worked well. The audio was actually very good. I could hear all of the dialogue and the music was mixed at a correct level. Overall, it checks all my criteria boxes. I rate this good.
