Even though RocknRolla came out over a decade ago and features stars like Gerard Butler, Idris Elba, and Tom Hardy, it failed to win mainstream attention. But there’s no doubt that fans of the fast-paced action film The Gentlemen will find it quite a treat.

The movie is essentially a battle of the hungriest and most powerful gangsters in London that are overpowered by an unexpected player. Full of twists, turns, and enough action to ignite a fire, RocknRolla makes for an amazing watching experience. And guess what? It’s directed by Guy Ritchie too!

The Snitch Cartel (2011)

This Colombian American movie isn’t exactly regarded as a fantastic piece of art, but it’s still entertaining and thrilling enough to satisfy the fans of the genre.

Especially if what you love the most are cartel wars, then The Snitch Cartel presents itself as a wild ride. The lack of well-known actors takes the experience to a whole other level – real, raw, and goosebump-inducing.

Savages (2012)

Savages has a very different pace from movies directed by Guy Ritchie. However, it’s the slower beginning and the softer undertones that make the increasingly tense atmosphere feel even more intense. In summary, exquisite in its own way.

Starring Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively as the girlfriend of pot growers Ben and Shon, the movie follows the two male protagonists as they face the Mexican cartel who kidnapped Blake’s O. All the crime and action are there, with just an extra dose of drama.

Brannigan (1975)

Brannigan takes us on our first trip down memory lane. While the recent wonders of technology have been able to elevate the genre to new heights, there’s nothing quite like the charm brought by ’70s gangster movies.

This 1975 film follows Chicago Police Lieutenant Jim Brannigan as he flies to the United Kingdom to escort an infamous crime boss back to the States. However, the stakes are high, and Brannigan finds himself in an intense life or death situation.

Snatch (2000)

Undeniably one of Guy Ritchie’s biggest masterpieces and achievements in filmmaking, Snatch is the kind of movie everyone needs to have in their “watch before you die” list.

Snatch has everything a fan of Ritchie could want – gangsters, mobsters, and thieves, all of them competing for the ultimate prize that will make them richer beyond their wildest dreams. Featuring Benicio Del Toro and Brad Pitt in incredible performances, it’s almost impossible to point out bad things in the movie.

Pineapple Express (2008)

This Golden Globe-nominated film strikes the perfect balance between comedy and action. Starring Seth Rogan and James Franco, Pineapple Express has all the makings of a Guy Ritchie film without actually being one.

When a process server and his marijuana dealer find themselves on the run from very dangerous mobsters, a wild hunt ensues, with plenty of hilarious and action-packed moments in between.

99 and 44/100% Dead (1974)

The name of this movie alone is enough to peak someone’s interest, but the good things don’t stop there. This relatively obscure and forgotten movie from the ’70s might not be a classic, but there’s a lot to love here!

In a typical war between gang bosses, the movie follows Big Eddie and Uncle Frank in a hilarious yet violent battle to consistently one-up each other in the most ridiculous ways.

Interview With A Hitman (2012)

Believe it or not, crazy perms weren’t the best thing to come out of the ’80s. The movies from this particular era don’t get enough credit, but. The Long Good Friday is a good testament as to why they should.

Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels (1998)
