Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels | 1998 | R | - 5.9.10

Small-time thieves Nick Moran, Jason Flemyng, Jason Stathman and Dexter Fletcher get on every big-time crook's hit list as they scramble to gather enough money to cover the debt they owe a major crime boss. Also with P.H. Moriarty, Sting, Vinnie Jones, Steven Mackintosh, Stephen Marcus and Peter McNicholl. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Sexual innuendo (including a reference to homosexuality). Several times we see phallic objects sitting on a man's desk. A topless dancer in thong panties rubs herself hands over her body (we see her bare breasts and buttocks). We see a woman wearing a cleavage-revealing top.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - We hear gunfire exchanged in another room, and when a man briefly opens the door to the room he gets blood splattered on his face; in two later scenes, we see many dead, bloody bodies in the room. In one scene, we see three people get shot (two have very bloody wounds) and one man has a hatchet thrown into his back; we see their dead bodies in one later scene. A man is shot in the foot; a few times we see the bloody wound and a puddle of blood around him. A man is shot (we see his bloody face) and a man cuts another's arm (we see the very bloody wound). A woman opens-fire on a group of men with a machine gun (we see her shoot one very bloody man several times). A man shoots a few others with an air gun. A man with a bloody face is forced to use his tongue as a golf tee while a man hits golf balls at another who's hanging upside down. A man throws a knife at another man; we hear a squishy noise but don't see anything when the knife hits his body. A man is on fire; we see him running from a building. A man begins to burn rolls of paper placed between a man and woman's toes (we don't see or hear anything more). Several men and one woman are punched in the face. A man beats another with a phallic object and a man repeatedly slams a car door on another's head; he then punches and kicks him until he's presumably dead. Twice, we see a man headbutt another; we also see a man knocked out with a gun. A man is grabbed by the neck and dragged up a flight of steps. A man is punched and thrown in the back of a van, and later he's elbowed in the face and punched. A man slams a tanning bed lid on a man lying under it (we see a little blood on his nose). A car hits a man (he gets some bloody cuts on his face). A car rear-ends another; a man in one of the cars is semi-conscious and has a bloody nose. A man's afro is singed when a bullet flies through his hair.

LANGUAGE 10 - About 120 F-words, lots of anatomical and scatological references, a couple of mild obscenities, many insults and several British slang terms.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
