More Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch than Revolver and Swept Away. Thank God!
Guy Ritchie wasn’t even trying to do anything new or different.
He basically repeated the formula from his first two films…
…Witty but bumbling theives with a tough leader? Check
…Nasty villain? Check
….Wildcard character? Check
…Well planned heist that gets screwed up? Check
….Everything tying together in the end? Check
Actually, I thought the ending was too abrupt. We never find out the final fate of Stella (Thandie Newton).
All the actors were great (I love hearing actors using their actual accents) except Chris Bridges (a.k.a Ludacris). He was too stiff especially considering he was paired up with Jeremy Piven.
