4.0 from 0 reviews

Plot twist-laden British caper comedy plays like Tarantino and crumpets. Four dim hoods, Bacon (Statham), Soap (Fletcher), Eddy (Moran) and Tom (Flemyng), pool their ill-gotten gains so that Eddy can play in a high stakes card game. They don't know that the game is fixed, however, and they end up owing gambler Hatchet Harry (Moriarity) 500,000 pounds. The bumbling band plan to rob their drug dealing neighbor Dog (Harper), who's planning on robbing an upper class rival of his own. Throw in a wandering pair of antique shotguns and you have the recipe for a cap-poppin' good time. Rock star Sting appears as the pub-owning father of one of the lads.
