Starring Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, Vinnie Pastore and André Benjamin (Andre 3000). Revolver dramatically explores the existential pain of a con man consumed by his need for absolute revenge.
Jake Green (Jason Statham) always ran with a bad crowd and it cost him seven years of his life. After his release from jail, Jake became unbeatable at the casino tables, adopting a formula for the ultimate con that he learned from two mysterious fellow prisoners. Having amassed a remarkable fortune, he is now ready to take revenge on Macha (Ray Liotta), his nemesis.
Meanwhile, as part of a plot to eliminate his ruthless rival Lord John, Macha stakes his credibility on a huge drug deal with the all-powerful Sam Gold. Jake arrives at Macha’s casino and publicly humiliates him by winning a game of chance, and Macha retaliates by sending his goons to kill him. Jake’s saving grace is the enigmatic Zach (Vinnie Pastore) and the inscrutable Avi (André Benjamin) who offer him protection at a rather costly price. Against his better judgement, Jake accepts, and soon finds himself facing an opportunity for final revenge against Macha. It is at this moment that he is introduced to a new enemy one that is more powerful than anything he has ever faced. He must now brave the unexpected and all-consuming fears it presents to regain his freedom.
Artfully constructed with layers of visual detail and powerful performances, Revolver is a gangster story unlike any other.
