Guy Ritchie films and series to binge after finishing The Gentlemen on Netflix

Guy Ritchie films and series to binge after finishing The Gentlemen on Netflix

The new series is currently number one in the UK on Netflix

Now it’s nearly been a full weekend since it came out, you might have already finished binging Netflix’s latest hot drop.

The Gentlemen landed on the streaming site on Thursday (7 March) - with fans raving about the crime drama.

The new series follows Eddie Horniman (Theo James) as he gets a taste for underground crime after inheriting his dad’s country estate – which also happens to be part of a cannabis empire.

And of course, the Netflix show is a spin-off of Guy Ritchie’s 2019 movie, The Gentlemen.

With only eight episodes in the series, it’s more than likely you’ve already finished it and looking for something else to watch.

Luckily, of course, Ritchie has plenty of work to his name that’ll make for the perfect watch next – with one of them even subtley referenced in the series.

So if you are new, then here's some places of where to start:

The Gentlemen (2019)

Entertainment Film Distributors

Well obviously, if you haven’t already watched it, you might as well watch the original film that inspired the Netflix show.

Written, directed, and produced by Ritchie, the movie follows an American grad who tries to sell off his weed empire in London.

The Gentlemen features many big names including Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell and Charlie Hunnam.

The film isn’t currently on streaming sites in the UK, but you can rent it on Prime Video and Apple TV.

With a subtle reference to this in the new Netflix series, the 2000 film is another ensemble work from Ritchie.

Snatch is again set in the ‘underbelly’ of London as two boxing promoters get roped into a diamond heist when a gangster shows up in the city.

The comedy film stars the likes of Jason Statham, Brad Pitt and Stephen Graham.

You can stream Snatch on Netflix.

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre

Another of Ritchie’s films starring both Statham and Grant, the 2023 movie also features Aubrey Plaza, Josh Hartnett and Bugzy Malone.

With a very mixed response from critics, the film sees special agent Orson Fortune (Statham) and his team recruiting a major movie star to help them on an undercover mission.

You can stream Operation Fortune on Prime Video.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E

Warner Bros. Pictures

Based on the 1964 TV series of the same name, Ritchie’s 2015 spy film was another to get a mixed response from critics.

Set during the height of the Cold War, a CIA agent and KGB agent have to put their differences aside to work together and stop a mysterious criminal organisation.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E stars the likes of Armie Hammer, Henry Cavill, Elizabeth Debicki and again, Grant. Oh, and there’s even a cameo from David Beckham.

The film is available to rent on Prime Video and Apple TV.

The Covenant

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in The Covenant.

The 2023 movie is set during the war in Afghanistan as a local interpreter risks their lfie to carry an injured sergeant across miles of gruelling terrain.

You can watch The Covenant on Prime Video.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Another gangster-crime film from Ritchie, the 1998 film features Statham alongside the likes of Vinnie Jones, Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher and Nick Moran.

It sees four mates play a game of poker and against a local mobster. But when they lose, they’ve got a week to figure out how they’re going to pay back £500,000.

In 2000, a spin-off show launched: Lock, Stock... With a different cast, it featured four mates attempting a different business venture in each episode.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is available to watch on Prime Video.

Ritchie has plenty of other films in his catalogue to binge on if you get through all of this such as Wrath of Man, RocknRolla and Sherlock Holmes.

And if you really fancy it, the live-action Aladdin.
