Four Jack-the-lads find themselves heavily - seriously heavily - in debt to an East End hard man and his enforcers after a crooked card game. Overhearing their neighbours in the next flat plotting to hold up a group of out-of-their-depth drug growers, our heros decide to stitch up the robbers in turn. In a way the confusion really starts when a pair of antique double-barrelled shotguns go missing in a completely different scam.

Pulp Fiction fans should love this video, as it is quirkier, more exciting and funnier than Tarantino's film. Few movies of the past decade even have a plot that makes sense, let alone one that is interesting, but LS&2SB is not just well thought out, edge-of-seat suspenseful, but it is downright clever.
Every single actor in this film does a fine to great job of acting, each portrays an unique character and each is perfectly cast. While not a gut-buster, this is a subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle black comedy.
Unlike most other comedies, the camera work in this movie is just extraordinary. The interspersed slow motion and speeded-up filming of the departure from the card game (after one of the lead characters is swindled out of 500,000 pounds) captures a state of disbelief and sickening depression better than practically any other portrayal of emotion I can recall from any film.
This movie contains a lot of violence, but it is done tastefully and in a limited fashion. The camera usually pans away from the actually violent parts, leaving the worst to our imaginations (or not, as we each see fit). This is a pleasant contrast with films like Casino, that contained revolting, sickening quantities of senseless violence.
Finally, the music accompanying this film is excellent. Out of the perhaps several thousand movies I have seen or rented in the past two decades, this was the first soundtrack since Animal House that I purchased and it is a very strong collection of old and new tunes that really added a lot to the atmosphere.
This one is worth buying, not just renting.

I was fortunate to have seen this film prior to it's American release in London where I was attending my brother's wedding in 1998. I was totally blown away by this high energy caper film. My first reaction was to compare Ritchie's style with that of Quentin Tarantino. On subsequent reflection,no, director Guy Ritchie with this film and the subsequent "Snatch" has a style all of his own. What impresses is the way Ritchie handles all of the storylines in this densely plotted story. He also does it in such a quick-cutting, high-energy style that you have to stop and catch your breath. Ritchie also gets the most out of a mostly unknown cast. Most impressive is Vinnie Jones, a former rugby player known for his agressive play on the field, as a formidable debt collector. It's a shame that the best he could do in American films was that lame remake of "Gone in 60 Seconds". My understanding is that Ritchie populated the film with alot of underworld types and that may account for the realism. Here's hoping that Ritchie gets back to his roots with his upcoming feature after the misfire that was "Swept Away".

If you own the previous edition of Lock, Stock you might really want think about if it is worth double-dipping. The transfer for this one is as good if not slightly worse than the previous 2003 release. There are only two (slight) new extras on this edition. "One Smoking Camera" features the film's cinematographer talking about how he shot the film. He takes us through a few key sequences and shows how they were shot or edited.

Finally, there is "Lock, Stock and Two F**king Barrels," a montage of colourful insults and curse words used throughout the film by various cast members.

Why the extras on the superior Region 2 release weren't ported over is a mystery and as a result this edition is really not worth your time.

First, go see the movie. Then by magnetic force you will be compelled to buy the CD in order to once again experience the rock and roll rollercoaster ride of the movie. An ecletic mix of rock, James Brown blues, and brit pop - along with a nice dose of classic soundbite snipits from the movie (a la Pulp Fiction). When I first got this soundtrack I was reading the playlist and thought "who are all these artists?" Now I will go out of my way to find their albums. The whole CD is great driving music - don't skip any songs!

Guy Ritchie is not only an amazing director, but he's attached the most unusual and awesome mix of music to this classic-to-be movie. This CD is for anyone who enjoys something away from the normal. BE WARNED!! There are two versions! I myself accidentally bought the American version, HUGE MISTAKE!!!! It lacked many delicious songs that were vital for maximum enjoyment. Please do NOT make the same mistake I did, buy the Imported version, do your research, you'll see. ENJOY!!

After all of the hyped Tarantino wannabe films of the early 90's, I was more than a little reluctant to see this film, because I was told that it followed that mold. However, I was pleasantly surprised and excited about this Brit gem that I feel is far superior than 'Pulp Fiction' or any of those other movies. Perhaps because it takes place in England, and it contains a lot of words and things that I have never heard before, but I just love this film to death. The story of four friends who find themselves heavily in debt after one of them loses big money to a local gangster, hilarity ensues as they figure out a way to get the money by the end of the week. Throw in two ancient shotguns, a bunch of clueless druggies, a few more badass gangsters and a huge case of mistaken identity, and you get one of the freshest films to be released in America for a long time. Everything is perfect--the cast, the plot, the characters. I was laughing so hard, tears were rolling down my face. If you haven't seen this film yet, you must. It is so funny, you'll want to watch it over and over again.
