It’s been a long time since Guy Ritchie has made something that’s distinctly his own. He’s spent the last decade chasing blockbusters, trying to turn himself into a mega-director the studios love to employ, only to receive a few kicks in the teeth (“The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”) and one lucky break from basically a sure thing (last year’s “Aladdin” remake).
