    Synopsis


    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
    British writer Guy Ritchie made his feature directorial debut with this crime-caper comedy-drama set in London's East End and heavy on the Cockney dialogue (with one scene in subtitled Cockney rhyming slang). A big-bucks scheme goes awry: Cardsharp Eddy (Nick Moran) and pals Bacon (Jason Statham), Tom (Jason Flemyng), and Soap (Dexter Fletcher) scuffle to pile up enough money to put Eddy at the card table opposite gangland porn lord Hatchet Harry (P.H. Moriarty). Unfortunately, the whole plan backfires, leaving Eddy owing Harry a huge sum, payable within the week. In truth, Harry hopes to acquire the bar run by his rival, J.D. (Sting), who is Eddy's father. To raise the cash, Eddy sets out to steal from a marijuana business run by Winston (Steven Mackintosh), but the inevitable gunplay doesn't make for an easy heist. World premiere at the 1998 Edinburgh Film Festival (Focus on British Cinema). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

      British Insanity: the Movie

      Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is an incredibly odd movie. It's complicated beyond comprehension, but your always on board and having fun. The characters are insane and enjoyable and all have THICK accents that are fun to listen to. The movie is like a British coked up version of Resevoir Dogs, as it flips around from character to character and constantly adds layers to the plot in nearly every scene. Also has a very dry sense of humor, and witty dialogue. Unfortunately, visually, the film is ugly. Everything is so yellow it almost looks like somebody urinated on the film negative. It does kind of work for the movie, but it can be repulsive at times. Overall, it's not for everyone, but those with a fondness for punchy dialogue, British humor and post- Pulp Fiction "hip gangster" movies will find little to dislike.

      If you enjoy Guy Ritchie movies, this is right up your ally. It's an early version of Snatch. Jason Statham is always great in these type of movies. He isn't dishing our round house kicks, but he is part of a group of con artists/hustlers that don't have the most common sense. Very funny and the story is great. I love how everything comes together in the end. Very clever.

      Only for Guy Ritchie fans

      I already have this release on DVD - saw in the store for $9.99 in Blu-Ray - had to have it. That being said, I ranked the overall rating as fair due to the poor quality of the Blu-Ray itself. Movie as to plot, acting, etc., was already known - and I enjoy the film itself. If you are buying this in order to see eye-popping visuals due to the Blu-Ray - take a pass.

      An original post-Tarantino voice...

      At the end of a decade filled with Tarantino-worshipping indie cinema, Guy Ritchie made himself a name with this fun crime flick. Using some of that QT vibe of quick-witted, cool-talking blokes in the midst of action, he filled the film with his own awesome visuals and a gang of faces that would soon become household names.

      I love this movie! Same director as another favorite movie of mine, SNATCH. Great characters and story lines. I watch a lot of British movies so I am able to follow various UK accents. May be difficult for someone to follow or understand when they talk fast. Lots of graphic language and violence, be warned.

      Another Director's Cut

      Posted
      kevman79

      For those who don't know. This is the unrated director's cut that adds some footage back into the movie that wasn't seen in the original theatrical release. While I very much enjoyed this film, it's certainly not for everyone. Those who like it know who they are, and for them this dvd is well worth the buy. Widescreen, sparse bonus features.

      Very unique

      I wasn't really sure what to think of this movie. Yes, I liked it, I actually liked it a lot. But it's very different. This is one of those movies that is basically made up entirely of the screenplay. There is some action but don't go expecting an action movie. I do recommend it but what you think of it is entirely up to you.

      This is a great movie. The video and audio are an upgrade to the dvd version but still not above average for a blu-ray release. But it is a great price if you do not already own the film or are looking for an upgrade to the dvd version.
