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.

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.

Even if flashy Ritchie's tall tale about the East End underworld starts to run out of steam, the punch line is so good that it makes up for a lot.

Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels is the laborious title of an even more laborious Cockney action movie.

Guignol violence, Lock, Stock aspires to be something like the Beatles meet the Wild Bunch. Too bad it doesn't have even a rubber soul.

The punchy little flourishes that load this English gangster film with attitude are perfectly welcome, because there's no honest, substantial part of the movie they can hurt.

The film's lures, while undeniable, are synthetic, and we never do learn what fuels all the greed besides pints of beer.

The cast is revved up to sizzle, with Sting in a smallish role, and the thick cockney dialogue is more comprehensible than you might think.

An MTV-generation Peckinpah, Ritchie stages the splatter with a hideous giddiness. He's one to watch.

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

Lock, Stock is fun, in a slapdash way; it has an exuberance, and in a time when movies follow formulas like zombies, it's alive.

This may be the first movie to capture the reckless exuberance of Pulp Fiction without seeming like a blatant rip-off.

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