Elmo McElroy is a streetwise American master chemist who heads to England to sell his special new formula - a powerful, blue concoction guaranteed to take you to 'the 51st state.' McElroy's new product delivers a feeling 51 times more powerful than any thrill, any pleasure, any high in history. But his plans for a quick, profitable score go comically awry when he gets stuck in Liverpool with an unlikely escort and his ex-girlfriend and becomes entangled in a bizarre web of double-dealing and double-crosses.

When Felix and McElroy jump the Jaguar onto the garbage barge, you can clearly see that there is nobody there. Then, after the car comes to a stop and they get out, Popeye and his crew are just sitting there, a few feet away on the same garbage piles they crashed into. See more »
I mean, rules are like, arbitrary, you know. Made up for people who believe in fairy tales like, you know, like Santa Claus. Hey, but not us, right? I mean, we know what's important. There's a war going on, man. A war. Ain't that a bitch?

Elmo McElroy (Samuel L. Jackson) was a peaceful druggie who got pinched after graduating pharmacology in 1971. 30 years later, he is a hustler chemist drug dealer. Dakota Parker (Emily Mortimer) is a hot assassin and The Lizard (Meat Loaf) is the boss. Elmo has created a new drug, double crosses The Lizard, and heads off to England to sell the formula to Durant. The Lizard offers to wipe clean Dakota's marker plus $250k more to get Elmo and Durant within 48 hours. Felix DeSouza (Robert Carlyle) is one of Durant's man who Dakota knows from her past. Then the Lizard complicates things further by wanting Elmo back alive.
Director Ronny Yu tries to push all kinds of weird stuff as he mangles the Guy Ritchie style. It's a pale imitation. At least Jackson and Carlyle have some fun. Emily Mortimer has never been that super hot model that this role seems to call for. The jokes don't come off well. Everybody is playing crazy for crazy's sake. It gets interesting every once in awhile but it is never quite good enough.
