Our Score
After an infamous flop with ex-wife Madonna (Swept Away) and a futile stab at intellectual credibility (Revolver), Guy Ritchie returned to the familiar world of comic crime capers here. With a higher calibre cast of known talents and rising stars, it's another shaggy dog tale of the kind with which he made his name in Lock, Stock ... and Snatch. Gerard Butler plays One Two, a low-ranking criminal who finds himself in hock to vicious hoodlum Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson) after a property deal goes wrong. To pay him back, One Two and sidekick Mumbles (Idris Elba) connive to sting a super-rich Russian, little realising that Cole has his own deal going with the oligarch. The stage is set for a tough-guy showdown, but sadly Ritchie sacrifices the bleaker side of things in favour of laddish camaraderie. Still, his visual energy makes up the shortfall, and a subplot involving a scheming junkie pop star (Toby Kebbell) is one of his most twisted and inspired yet.


A Russian mob boss sets up a profitable real-estate scam in London and soon every criminal in the city is after their share. The gangster's accountant hires a trio of crooks to take his boss's millions, while a rock star with a penchant for faking his own death causes further mayhem by stealing a valuable painting. Guy Ritchie's crime comedy, starring Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson and Thandie Newton.
