Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)

Director: Guy Ritchielock-stock

Writer: Guy Ritchie

Starring: Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher, Nick Moran, Jason Statham

Description: Four friends save up a lot of money and puts all of it on a shady poker game. Obviously it does not go as planned, and things that follow are gangsters, weed, torpedoes and two antique shotguns. This is surprisingly both director Guy Ritchie and actor Jason Statham’s first movie. Hysterically funny, tragic and exciting at the same time.

Rating: 8.6 / 10

Other notable cast: Steven Mackintosh, Nicholas Rowe, Vinnie Jones,
