Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels: Locked 'N Loaded - Director's Cut (Unrated) [2006]


Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels: Locked 'N Loaded - Director's Cut (Unrated) [2006]

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is a 1998 British heist film by director Guy Ritchie. But the Locked 'N Loaded - Director's Cut isn't a remake; it's some extra stuff burn on by to let the audience know more about Ritchie's thoughtful directing. The film focuses on long time and best friends: Bacon (Jason Statham), Soap (Dexter Fletcher), Tom (Jason Flemyng) and Eddie (Nick Moran) decide to put together £100,000 to play 3 card brag against "Hatchet" Harry Lonsdale (P.H. Moriarty) - a porn king of notorious disposition - in a high-stakes card game in the hopes of winning easy money.

Barry "the Baptist" (Lenny McLean) who is Harry's personal bodyguard and trusted counsel, fixed the game so Eddie, the card shark representing the group, loses to Harry and is forced to pay a £500,000 debt within one week, citing the loss of fingers and Eddie's father's bar if he fails to pay. To Eddie's fortune, and the dismay of his friends, all four of the group are tasked with honouring this debt, as they were all responsible for fronting the stake money. Harry’s loyal and violent debt collector, Big Chris (Vinnie Jones) - who often brings his son and apprentice, Little Chris, to his work - is assigned to collect the payment on the due date.

Many days after but Eddie ran out of ideas but to his surprise when he returns home and overheard his neighbours conversation that they are a bunch of thieves known for robbing drug dealers, planning a plot on some marijuana growers with loads of cash somewhere. Eddie relies on this group information and intends to rob them after they have robbed the growers to solve his debts.

Tom has an underground dealer, known as Nick "the Greek" (Stephen Marcus), to provide them with guns for the job, and to find someone to help them move the drugs. Nick then manages to acquire a pair of antique shotguns (bought for £700 for a pair - actual price was £700,000 each), and arrange a deal with Rory Breaker (Vas Blackwood), a gangster and sociopath, to purchase the stolen weed (Wikipedia).

I wouldn't review much, it's just complicated and all too much fun to spoil.

This is a fun twisted plot with everyone is connected and sometimes kinda sarcastic and idiotic too. Best film from Ritchie. I like Snatch (film) too! Both are great films from Ritchie, other than that doesn't seem promising!

So what's included in the 2006's Director's Cut version is that Ritchie's food for thought and some extras deleted and some added and so on.
