Perfectly balanced film. The cast and acting, interesting characters, action elements, humour are all beautifully blended together, complemented by the soundtrack. This film has aged very well, after about 15 years hasn't lost anything out of its appeal, special effects play little role here, it's all about the gritty story, crazy characters and dark humour.
Endearingly messy, enjoyably brutal and occasionally hilarious. The cast is magnificent and although I felt at time that Guy Ritchie was trying a bit too hard to recreate the magic of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, this is an excellent follow-up that almost outdoes it. But not quite.
Fast-paced and criss crossing this is easily Ritchie's best film. Cartoonish in feel but still some beautiful cinematography. For instance, the final fight is stunning and film's the ending is very satisfying. However it must be said some of the accents are better than others - 4 Stars
