Revolver – Jake Green -hot shoot gambler
Jake Green (Jason Statham) is a hot shoot gambler, long on audacity and short on common sense… He’s rarely allowed to play in any casino these days because he’s dangerous. He’s a winner. One night Jake and 2 older brothers, Billy and Joe, are invited to sit down in a private game.
A game that is fixed for Jake to loss to Macha (Ray Liotta), a top dog crime boss and casino owner who can’t play for squat, but always wins because people just aren’t allowed to loose to him. But Jake isn’t afraid of Macha. And not only beats him in a quick game of chance, but also takes every possible opportunity to throw insults. As Jake and his brothers leave the game, Macha puts out the order for the hit on Jake and what Macha wants, Macha gets.
However a twist of fate gets Jake working for a pair of brothers, who happen to have their own agenda for Macha.Mark Strong a Kirk Originals devotee and loyal wearer of the brand on screen and off screen talks “Revolver” to us.
“Revolver”, a London and Las Vegas gallery of gambling, guns, gangsters and games starring Ray Liotta, Jason Statham, Vincent Pastore, Andre 3000 from Outkast and more, I play a rather sweet, nerdy assassin called “The Sorter” – “A machine of death he’s described as and he never misses. But he’s got a stutter, he’s nervy, wears a raincoat and glasses, and the idea is that this seemingly innocuous gentle guy is a lethal shot. There’s a whole sequence where he massacres a load of the bad guys, well even badder guys really, and when I saw in the script Mozart’s’ Requiem starts playing and in slow motion he sorts out and kills everyone in the room I thought that’s a moment and I really wanna be part of that.” “Sorter” wears Charles 1/101 It’s not only Sorter that has an eye for great glasses – watch closely!
