A Guy Ritchie
film, Lock Stock takes us into the upside down world of four regular guys
whose lives take a turn for the worse when they owe 500,000 pounds when a card
game is lost due to cheating. The lads have a limited amount of time to get
the money back or they are up for it.
inept drug dealers, some hardened thugs and a robbery gone wrong and you will
start to get a handle on the storyline. This movie is sheer brilliance and the
pacing superb as Ritchie delivers up a cult classic.
The plot has so many
twists and turns that your head will be spinning, however it's not too much to
keep a handle on, and the ending quite frankly should surprise everyone. For
those of you who enjoyed the movie, please be aware that there is a spin off
series called Lock Stock on DVD that should keep you extremely happy.
The movie looks great,
although somewhat grainy (intentionally). The extras are not in abundance
which is unfortunate, with them only being interviews and trailers. The movie
sounds great and don't be alarmed that there is no sound on the animated menu
as that also is intentional for some reason that absolutely eludes me.
This is a must own DVD
for fans of Pommy Underworld flicks or just people who like clever movies.
