TELEVISION SERIES – “There is only one rule in the jungle. When the lion is hungry, he eats! » said Matthew McConaughey’s character in the film of 2019. With its spin-off series The Gentlemen, Guy Ritchie once again takes Netflix subscribers to the heart of the jungle and immerses them a little deeper into the world of the English underworld. If there is no Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, Charlie Hunnam or Colin Farrell in the cast, the series is full of winks which will please fans of the British director.

If the series changes scenery, many of them here largely define Guy Ritchie’s style, allowing viewers to be hooked. Although this time the action does not take place on the street, some places are very reminiscent The Gentlemen and other films by the director: cannabis farms and boxing rooms to name but a few.

Another obvious nod: the presence in the casting of actor and former football star Vinnie Jones, who was already on the bill for Scams, crimes and botany, Snatch a you movie The Gentlemen. The series is also, like all Guy Ritchie films, full of humor, daring dialogue, and equipped with a sharp original soundtrack.

Characters that pop on the screen

Theo James (The White Lotus) plays Eddie, a protective brother who oscillates between his noble status and his true strategic and brutal nature. His big brother Freddie, played by Daniel Ings, is the perfect embodiment of eccentricity. Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) lends his features to another aristocrat, Stanley Johnston, a character as delicate as he is enigmatic.

On the criminal side, Kaya Scodelario is far from her role as Teresa in The labyrinth. She plays Susie Glass, a young drug lord who runs the family business with a firm and calm hand. Her character’s personality will remind fans of the film of Mickey Pearson’s wife Rosalind, played by Michelle Dockery.

This time the gangsters are more refined, but don’t be fooled by their good manners. Despite their cups of tea and their little fingers raised, they are just as hungry. Here, three-piece suits go hand in hand with big guns. It’s a perfect mix between “refinement and aggressiveness” as Stanley Johnston’s character states in the trailer. Like in the film, everyone wants a piece of the pie, and there is no shortage of bloodshed.

The eight episodes of the series The Gentlemencan be discovered on Netflix.
