Guy Ritchie's new movie has been savaged by critics after it's premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Just two years after his last effort, SWEPT AWAY, flopped miserably - Revolver, Ritchie's return to the gangster genre, has been dismissed as a "convoluted, risibly overwrought muddle" by one US magazine.

Screen International also warned viewers would be left "bewildered and disappointed" by what the Hollywood Reporter described as "pretentious style and fractured storytelling".

Hollywood Reporter reviewer KIRK HONEYCUTT adds, "The movie spins wildly in circles, continually doubling back on itself, repeating scenes - once even backward - and lines of dialogue until a viewer loses a grip on what is supposed to be real."

Jason Statham, Ray Liotta and ANDRE '3000' BEJNAMIN star in the movie about a feud between a criminal gambler and a gangland boss.

Ritchie was acconpanied to the Toronto screening by his wife MADONNA - appearing less than a month after she suffered three cracked ribs, a broken collarbone and a broken hand in a horse riding accident.

cec: waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to go, oh great Christian ambassador. In one paragraph you manage to judge, to curse, and to ask Jesus for protection. That is the kind of 'Christianity' the world can do without. you need to go sit in the corner by yourself and do some serious introspection.Ritchie is on a downward streak, it would appear, tho lemme see the film for myself before I trust the critics too much.

Siren, sweetheart, the grammatical errors I pointed out didn't occur in an email, but in a would-be professional quality publication. Not all of us are resigned to seeing illiterate stream-of-consciousness ranting become the standard for all discourse.And, on a purely personal note, might I point out that there are decaffeinated brands on the market that are every bit as tasty as the real thing?

Regardless of how bad his movie sucks, he deserves an award. I can't imagine having to go home to her everynight. I'd rather beat myself on the head with a claw hammer 18 hours/day.
