Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels Reviews

Fast-paced romp has violence, gangsters, drugs.

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.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
