Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels director Guy Ritchie heads back to the London underworld for this hyperkinetic crime comedy concerning a shady land deal that leaves every schemer in the city determined to get rich or die trying.

Ritchie's films are an acquired taste, and this one is really just more of the same - a whole lot of style and attitude that never really builds up to anything. It's surprisingly dull, juggling so many characters and convoluted intersecting plots that none of them really develops any suspense. It has some elements that work, but ultimately it's just shrill, annoying, and forgettable.
Didn't feel like finishing it, so I didn't. It's not that it's bad, it's more that Guy Ritchie seems to think it's amazing (which it certainly isn't). What can one say about a director whose best film is his first film. 2/5
Total shit - like with any Ritchie movie, the trailer makes it look like the funnest film ever, and it turns out to be totally non-engaging, with all the characters really having one attribute: being pissed.
That was irritating. Good actors can't save a drowning script. Too much style, not enough sense. It seems that Ritchie was trying to do a 'Ritchie film' but he tried too hard.
Mark Strong is obviously great.
Fun, fun & fun. Humor, comedy, action & thrill; whtaever you want. Great soundtrack. Completely crazy & insane guys doing a lot of bullshit. Masterfully put in scene. Superb actors at work; all of them. Twists & turns all over. Wow, just watch it.
Ritchie is trying so hard to be some kind of Tarantino. But, as we can see, it's going too bad. Every "satiric" and "hilarious" moments in this movie makes me cry like a little girl, because they are so artificialy installed, which makes them quite lame.
