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.
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.
