Product Description

Product Description

After losing all their money to London crime boss Hatchet Harry (P.H. Moriarty) in a card game, twentysomething friends Eddy (Nick Moran), Tom (Jason Flemyng), Soap (Dexter Fletcher) and Bacon (Jason Statham) decide to steal from their drug-dealing neighbour, Dog. Using guns stolen from burglars in the employ of Harry, the quartet carry out their heist, leaving their money at Eddy's. However, as they set about disposing of the evidence, they are unaware that there is more to their firearms than they thought...

From Amazon.co.uk

Cockney boys Tom, Soap, Eddie and Bacon are in a bind; they owe seedy criminal and porn king "Hatchet" Harry a sizeable amount of cash after Eddie loses half a million in a rigged game of poker. Hot on their tails is a thug named Big Chris who intends to send them all to the hospital if they don't come up with the cash in the allotted time. Add into the mix an incompetent set of ganja cultivators, two dimwitted robbers, a "madman" with an afro, and a ruthless band of drug dealers and you have an astonishing movie called Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Before the boys can blink, they are caught up in a labyrinth of double-crosses that lead to a multitude of dead bodies, copious amounts of drugs, and two antique rifles.

Written and directed by talented newcomer Guy Ritchie, this is one of those movies that was destined to become an instant cult classic à la Reservoir Dogs. Although some comparisons were drawn between Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino, it would be unfair to discount the brilliant wit of the story and the innovative camerawork that the director brings to his debut feature. Not since The Krays has there been such an accurate depiction of the East End and its more colourful characters. Indicative of the social stratosphere in London, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is a hilarious and at times touching account of friendships and loyalty. The director and his mates (who make up most of the cast) clearly are enjoying themselves here. This comes across in some shining performances, in particular from ex-footballer Vinnie Jones (Big Chris) and an over-the-top Vas Blackwood (as Rory Breaker), who very nearly steals the show. Full of quirky vernacular and clever tension-packed action sequences, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is a triumph--a perfect blend of intelligence, humour and suspense. --Jeremy Storey

This information only relates to the Jan 25th, 2010 Blu-Ray release from Universal UK.

Although this product is advertised as being the 114 minute version (i.e, the Director's Cut), it sadly is just the plain 108 minute theatrical release. I informed Amazon about this some time ago; but the information listed at present is still incorrect.

The PQ and AQ (although being DTS HD MA) is nothing to write home about. Obviously it is a low-budget flick, but it could certainly be imporoved on while still being faithful to the source material. Judging by other reviews it appears that this release is identical to the one released in the states last year--which received lukewarm reviews precisely due to the technical aspects.

I am hoping the _actual_ 114 minute version is not too far away, and that the studio puts more effort into ensuring it receives a quality transfer that time around.

***This review is for the original soundtrack album, and NOT the actual film. Unhelpfully Amazon have lumped reviews of film and soundtrack together.***

For a while Guy Ritchie seemed to be the British equivalent of Tarantino, making films with various shades of dodgy and violent characters getting caught up in weird and wonderful situations, all with a slightly knowing air and a well crafted soundtrack. I enjoyed Lock Stock, but doubt I would have done so much if the soundtrack had not been of such a high standard.

Collecting together a miscellany of material from artists as diverse as Dusty Springfield, James Brown, Ocean Colour Scene, Robbie Williams and the Stone Roses, it is a well chosen selection of tracks that illustrated and punctuated the action on the screen perfectly. Collected together as an album, they work pretty well despite the diversity of the material, and this is a pretty interesting and listenable collection. Thrown in are a few bits of original music from the film, and some of the more memorable bits of dialogue, which is something I particularly like in a soundtrack.

5 stars for a very listenable, entertaining and diverse collection of foot-tappers.

I'll start off this review by saying that I only just watched it for the first time, last year. I had heard of it years ago and although I had seen Snatch (which I regard as another great movie) years before I first watched this, it was a while before I got round to watching this movie. When I did watch this, it was when I rented it from Lovefilm and I found it so enjoyable that I went ahead and bought a copy of this from here, on amazon.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is a London crime movie, directed by Guy Ritchie and released in the year, 1998. The film has several different plots, all of which are interlinked to one-another - some loosely and some strongly. But I won't divulge into every single storyline, but rather the pivot of the movie.

The main protagonists are four men - Eddie, Tom, Soap and Bacon, played by actors, Nick Moran, Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher and Jason Statham, respectively. The four live together and have illegal jobs, which include black market jobs, selling stolen goods. The single exception is Soap, who goes by that name because he doesn't like to get his hands "dirty" with anything unlawful. The four have spent some time earning money so Eddy, a genius card shark, can play a card game with unlawful businessman, "Hatchet" Harry and earn a lot more money; playing his weekly card games requires at least £100,000 upfront.

Being a genius at cards, Eddy has a very high chance of winning. However, aware of these odds, Harry rigs the game so that he will win, and Eddy not only loses, but he also leaves the game with a £500,000 debt, which he and his friends have a week to find! If they fail...well, put it this way, Harry is a man you pay when you owe.

As you all know, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is one of Britain's best loved films so i wont talk about the movie. The reason for this review is to see whether it is worth buying over the original DVD that was released about 7 years ago. I have both and the only difference is that the new 2 disc edition does have a fair amount of extras that add up to just over an hour. The main 50 minute feature which is the making of.. is very good and often funny to watch with interviews from both 1998 and 2005. Then theres a few trailers and tv spots, an additional 10 mintute featurette that talks about the editing of the movie, an interactive east london map with the films locations, and a very funny if a little immature 2 minute featurette titled 'lock stock and two f**king barrels which just consists of random scenes with all the swear words.

As for the picture and sound quality of the movie, it definitely hasnt improved from the last DVD and unfortunately is still a little poor. Guess we'll just have to wait for the High Definition DVD to come out to get perfect quality.

Undoubtedly, i definitely prefer the newer version even though the extras could have definitely been better, a director's commentary from Guy Richie would have been nice and the picture quality couldve have been better too. Also the featurette that was included in the last DVD isnt present in this one although all the extras on the new one are far better anyway. So if you can get this for under £10 and dont already own the older DVD version then go for it, however to those who already have the old version and are thinking of buying this 2 disc special edition then i personally wouldnt, seeing as an extra £7-10 isnt worth it for the 1 hour of extras provided on this new DVD.
