Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels Reviews

Fast-paced romp has violence, gangsters, drugs.

Bill Gibron

What his other movies have done summarily or languidly, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels does with some clear novice stumbles. It's creative and very clever. It's just not a classic.

I was thoroughly entertained while I was watching it, and I haven't hated myself since. And that is something, though I don't know exactly what.

Expect plenty of laughs and some edge-of-your-seat sweats, but not a whole lot else.

Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels est du très bon cinema.

| Original Score: B+

Looking Closer

If only it could have resisted revelry in its own style and violence, it might have been one 1999's best films, due to its performances and clever plot twists.

Fans of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown are in for a treat.

Though Ritchie isn't the most accomplished filmmaker, his artistic use of freeze-frames, slow motion and other camera trickery proves he is a precocious talent to be reckoned with in the future.

Boston Phoenix

Ritchie orchestrates the plots and anti-plots with the delight of a sadistic child; by the end of this film, his career shows signs of smoking.

The best one can say is that it's a smart cartoon, and a fairly exhausting viewing experience.

Even when the accents are as indecipherable as the plot, Ritchie keeps the action percolating and the humor on high.

A clever, complex, and comic caper that takes its share of unexpected twists and turns.

You'll laugh out loud, and in the end you'll be cheering for the good guys, if you can figure out who they are and what language they're speaking.

We've heard it all before, and usually with a slightly more comprehensible accent.

A Laurel and Hardy film would have looked like deep sardonic humor compared with this sophomoric effort.

Go see it if you're in the mood. You're bound to get a chuckle, but don't expect too much.

Because the film has to split its running time among so many different characters, all of whom look alike and act alike but have different names, I got rather bored.

Just don't expect to be dazzled by the story, because if you're like me... you'll have trouble following the faces, and hence, the plot, from one scene to another.
