CULVER CITY, CALIF. (January 7, 2008) – Revolver, the fully-loaded psychological thriller from the award winning director Guy Ritchie (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; Snatch) blasts its way onto DVD March 18, 2008 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. A sleek and edgy film about mastering the rules of the game, the acclaimed film is populated with an all-star cast of gangster movie icons, including Jason Statham (Snatch, The Transporter, The Italian Job), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Vincent Pastore (TV’s “The Sopranos”) and Outkast's André Benjamin (Four Brothers).

Also included are alternate opening and ending sequences, deleted scenes, a photo gallery, and audio commentary with director Ritchie. Revolver will be available for $24.96 SRP.

Just out of prison, Jake Green (Statham) is a hotshot gambler, but he's rarely allowed to play in any casino because he always wins. When Jake is invited to a private game with Macha (Liotta), a crime boss and local casino owner, he is expected to lose. But Jake isn't afraid of Macha, and not only beats him in a quick game of chance, but takes every possible opportunity to insult the man. Jake leaves the game, and Macha puts out the order for a hit on Jake, who ends up working for and being protected by a pair of loan sharks, Avi and Zack, who are out to take Macha down.

Just watch this and I could not agree more. I had much the same reaction as you. What a mess.
