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
