MY MARKERS ARE DUE ON Monday, is what everyone says in this film from the street punk, to the loan shark to the mob boss, to the god damn governor of the state. Like any guy Ritchie film there are several levels of the underworld and like an onion we keep peeling and peeling. And like a guy Ritchie film everybody is an interesting character. Besides the threats and the torture there's comedy, one lines, you really care for these half wit Neanderthals that break into your home and steal your knew wide screen for a fix. I love films that start off with some hustler be-bopping and scatting just to survive another 24hours. Here we have a coke head wall street douche bag that does million-dollar deals everyday in the stock market and comes out ahead. However as good as he is in stocks he's horrible covering the over under in the San-Diego vs. Seattle. One layer of the onion is watching the bookie do his monologue as he tortures the two-bit gang-member. Who in-turn does the same dialogue as he tries to torture a two-bit hustler.
