Lock, Stock and a fantastic movie!
The plot is one big blanket weaved perfectly together by a large number of brilliantly done strings of small stories. All crossing each others paths at various intervals, all depending on each other and all coming together in the end. This is really well done and very inspiring!
The acting is like most British movies; not too dramatic and each character quite convincing. If I have to name some actors who did a particularly good job it would be Jason Flemyng as Tom (what have you been eating?), Lenny McLean as The Baptiser (that mean looking bastard - look up is bio on IMDB btw.) and Frank Harper as Dog (with bigger teeth than you).
As this movie is more about the plot and the acting the special effects are kept to a minimal. I do not mind and it works good with a movie this good. The music on this other hand is delicately selected and comprises a brilliant soundtrack. Well done.
This is truly one of my favorite movies. It is a British movie, featuring Jason Statham, Vinnie Jones and Alan Ford, and it is directed by Guy Ritchie, which are all on my list of favorites, so it might not be a big surprise.
