A Disgrace to Criminals Everywhere.
A fast paced comedy about a card sharp and his unwillingly enlisted friends, who need to make a lot of cash quick after losing a sketchy poker match. To do this they decide to pull a heist on a small-time gang who happen to be operating out of the flat next door. Lots of British humor, off the wall characters, and a line up of unbelievable scenes put director Guy Ritchie on the map.

Four bad guys owes much money from a gang. In order to pay it back, they organise a dangerous but funny plan. There are full of violent scenes in the movie, but they are not grotesque. It makes you rather fun among many humourous conversation. As a whole, It's a well-made classic with British sense. I've watched some British films, but I felt like this one was the most British.

By what we read on the synopsis, I was expecting something more dark and serious and not something so brilliantly funny and entertaining! Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is the perfect blend of crime and humour.

I think every single performance was great, the characters are extremely funny and despite the fact that they are all a bunch of criminals and swindlers they are all very likable.

Visually different, with a great camerawork. The dialogues are excellent, the plot is amazing and the ending is absolutely fantastic, it couldn't be a better end for this story!

Guy Ritchie did a terrific job directing this film! And it's a gangsters flick! How could I not like a good gangsters flick!?

If you are like me and you did not watch this until now, you don't know what you are missing. Please, watch this right now!
