‘Brother, mother, any other sucker!’

Super wordplay. Just one of the the things I love about this movie.

Set in London’s East End, Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels is very entertaining – thanks to the excellent dialogue and incessantly funny male banter.

From Writer / Director Guy Ritchie, the film fits comfortably into the comedy / crime genre. There’s no shortage of well crafted characters, some of whom you’d count yourself very lucky to never encounter.

If you’re a seasoned film fan, It may be hard to not have Quentin Tarantino pop into your mind, for reasons including but not limited to the highly quotable dialogue and brilliant soundtrack.

Watch it!

Happy Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels 🙂
