The first movie since "Snatch" and "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" to copy them, and be just as good. I say A-
7 June 2011 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"We got the weapons, we got the style, we got the motivation, what could possibly go wrong?" When a guy comes up with a plan to steal money from a bank, (kinda like what they did in Superman 3) he thinks he is gonna be rich by the next morning. After losing $100,000 is a card game he is sure he will have the money. Soon after this, things start going bad, quickly. It seems to me that after "Snatch" and "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" everyone has been trying to make the next one. In 10 years this is the only one that has come close. Like "Lock, Stock" this one has a few groups that have their own story line going on and somehow all converge. This movie is equal parts action and comedy. It was a very fun movie to watch and if you enjoy the "Snatch" type movies, you will love this one. Made before Sam Worthington became a star, (he is the only recognizable person in the movie) but it holds up five years after it was made. The acting and effects are a little lacking, but that does not in any way detract from the experience. This movie is proof that you don't need big name actors and a million dollar budget in order to make a great movie. Very enjoyable to watch. I really liked it. I give it a A-.

Would I watch again? - I absolutely would.

*Also try - Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels & Perrier's Bounty
