It's a fun film. The ending kind of leaves you (or at least me) with a smile on your face.
Personal favorite Guy Ritchie movie. Wonderful characters, surreal scenes and great ending.
Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is the precursor to his star-making Snatch, and just about as stylish if not as slick. While Snatch is a lot of fun, I also thought it was overwrought, overcomplicated and gimmicky. Lock Stock is more raw and indie, and its story is easier to follow, and is all the better for it. The underworld dark comedy of errors is about four friends who end up with an unpayable debt at the poker table and endeavor to steal what they need. And then there's the antique guns from the title, and a massive stash of weed, and six groups of people who have or want one of the other or all of them at any given time. Good fun, though I'm glad Ritchie eventually dialed down his style in later films like Sherlock Holmes.
