Review
Corking, wise-cracking Cockney gangster caper set in London's sleazy underworld. Foul-mouthed in the extreme, "Lock, Stock" tells the sorry tale of Eddy (Nick Moran), a wanabee card-sharp who winds up well and truly shafted, owing half a million quid to somewhat volatile porn merchant Hatchet Harry. Roping in an assortment of dodgy cohorts, Eddy hits on a crazily cunning plan to come up with the readies before his dad (Sting) loses his livelihood. Hugely entertaining by virtue of its sheer energy, this is an audacious debut from first time writer/director Guy Ritchie. Brit-flick brilliance or crassly contrived? Who cares, when it's this much fun finding out?
