The last 20min of this movie is probably the best ending to any movie I have ever seen. THis is hilarious, suspenseful, violently awesome, sick, twisted, smart creative, and everything else. The very last scene is absolutely the best way to ever end a movie, EVER! --Spoiler-- Wow! So the last scene lets you create your own ending. Building up to it my thoughts were; it would be epic if they didn't get the money or the guns and he throws them into the river, the other side of me wanted so bad for them to win and come out on top with money. And what does this movie do???? It lets me choose based on what mood I am in when I watch it. Such a great way to end this movie. A classic!

This is the first great Guy Ritchie film - a movie populated by a constantly shifting cast of memorable and grotesque characters. The film boasts some Tarantino-style neo-noir action and some dark humor and is a memorable British gangster flick.

When a cocky young poker hustler finds himself in debt with a local gangster he and his friends hatch a plan to steal the loot from a crew of shady criminals who live next door.

The cheeky cockney dialogue feels very forced and cliched by today's standards and the film as a whole looks rather cheap and crude. The gleeful irreverence brought to table by Ritchie's knowingly silly script saves the day however, and the story gets more and more entertaining as it gets less and less plausible. Definitely not to be taken seriously, it's a heist movie with its tongue stuck firmly in its cheek that although dated evokes a certain nostalgia for naivete of the …

Had a truckload of characters and plot was a bit confusing because of the figures popping-up back and forth. Soap’s character and …
