Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Director:  Guy Ritchie
Year Released:  1998
Rating:  0.5

If Pulp Fiction and Trainspotting were to mate and have a son, it would turn out to look a little like this ... naturally the child would have had to be dropped on its head a few times. Ritchie is so self-assured that his flashy camera work and editing can keep your interest that he completely forgets about character development, coherent storytelling or inventiveness, for that matter.
