“Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels” is another action-packed, hilarious, and sometimes confusing movie. Much like “Snatch” (Directed by the very same Guy Ritchie), there are multiple storylines going on at the same time, that all ultimately converge in a bloody massacre. It’s a crime movie, but it’s more about the misadventures of criminals blindly stumbling around than actual crimes taking place. In the end, nearly everyone gets shot, and the surviving group is the one that really hasn’t done anything to anyone. The plot starts out fairly simply, but other groups keep coming in and complicating matters until you barely know what’s happening. Then, someone gets shot, closely followed by someone else, until the credits roll. Having said that, I thought that this was a very funny and well-made movie, and probably the best use of two hours I’ve seen in a while. I would definitely recommend this film to a friend, and would probably even buy it.
