The world building with multiple storylines intertwining make for one hell of a watch. A glass of whiskey and a cigar would be a good match
Great cast, original ( at the time ) storyline, nice dark humour and a bit of violence all around a caper or two gone wrong. Brilliant
A timeless classic with so many one liners. Love it.
Britains answer to Pulp Fiction. The intertwining stories of crime gone hilariously wrong are great
It's a gangster film, what more.do you want. It's not Snatch, but it'll tickle your bits.
A great Guy Ritchie gangster film, not unlike Snatch. In fact it is very much like Snatch, so if you liked that you’ll love this
Fun movie. Smartly written though easy to get lost in the large cast. Guessing where the story will go next keeps the audience enthralled
Guy Richie is brilliant this is a great British film
Good movie. Funny and original (for when it was made).
It's incredible how Guy Ritchie often manages to put together some funny weirdness while making the plot intricate and really entertaining
