This IS entertainment in itself. The one word I can use to describe this film the best is 'entertaining'. And it is, it's up there in the best British comedies and because I can't say I’ve seen many; this along with 'Snatch' are easily my favorites.

I don't think it would be possible to watch this movie and not laugh. There's a joke all the time, some more obvious than others. I h... read more

The British try their hand at imitating some of the Tarantinoisms of Pulp Fiction. Or maybe Reservoir Dogs. I dunno. But what I do know is the way that my smile tends to crook as a result of listening to the way Lock Stock's script manages to continually weave up, down & sideways to finally coalesce into an English flavored "duck soup", full of chunky bits of quips, guns & sometimes-almost-hard-to... read more

A good movie

Back in those days, Guy Ritchie was hailed as the next best thing but, unfortunately, even though he managed to make a decent come-back with 'RocknRolla', he never really fulfilled my expectations. Anyway, this movie was his directing debut but even though I thoroughly enjoyed it, I tend to think it is actually rather overrated. The point is that it is so similar in tone and style to 'Snatch', Rit... read more

"I've always thought of Guy Ritchie (in his early days) as a sort of British Tarantino, but with more of a Coen Brothers sense of humor and quirky characters. Lock, Stock is brilliant writing, and it's so damn funny. And it's a great representation of that late 90's style-driven, auteur filmmaking."

" Es uno de esos filmes que tratan del "atraco perfecto". Esta compuesta de varios personajes que se mezclan en la trama generando grandes momentos de comedia negra. Cada uno tiene su propia línea narrativa a parte, ya que no es una película lineal. A pesar de tener muchas similitudes con otras en su genero emana su propio estilo como su curiosa dirección y fotografía sepia."

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary 2019 (251 movies items)

"30.5. 2019 "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" looks somehow odd from the beginning. It is a mix between a black comedy and a crime film that is directed like a commercial or a music video. Hardly anything is told about any of the countless characters of the story. The movie is full of unnecessary close-ups, slow-motion effects, swirling cameras, and other fancy but shallow tricks that only exist in order to make a short-lasting impression on a viewer."

"Re-watch - Dec. 4th Back when this came out I really loved it. For its time it was fresh and amusing all around, but now it's lost some of its shine. Oh it's still consistently entertaining, but now I find the characters to be lacking somewhat. When your supporting cast outshines the central leads that's problematic. And I'm not so thrilled with the way women are portrayed here either, especially since none of them have any depth & could just as well have been left out of the film altogether. S"
