Film Title ~ Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels: Directors Cut (1998)


Well its a bit corny and violent but its basic film fun for everybody.Londoners go mad with guns and money The card playing, well that fits in with the rest of the film's fairytale style. Don't take it seriously and you'll like it.

The story is a bit complicated. Four London working class stiffs pool their money to put one in a high stakes card game, but things go wrong and they end up owing half a million pounds and having one week to come up with the cash.

Hot on their tails is a thug named Big Chris who intends to send them all to the hospital if they don't come up with the cash in the allotted time. Add into the mix an incompetent set of ganja cultivators, two dimwitted robbers, a "madman" with an afro, and a ruthless band of drug dealers and you have an astonishing movie.

Before the boys can blink, they are caught up in a labyrinth of double-crosses that lead to a multitude of dead bodies, copious amounts of drugs, and two antique rifles.
