A la "Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels," director Ritchie's second film is another well-populated and disorganized crime caper, this time with descriptively named lowlifes trying to heist a stolen 84-carat diamond. Leading the mayhem are Turkish (Statham) and Tommy (Graham), two boxing promoters who sign Mickey (Pitt), an Irish Gypsy, to take a dive. Meanwhile, Franky Four Fingers (Del Toro) transports the red-hot rock to London and his boss Avi (Farina), where it promptly gets lifted. Enter Bullet Tooth Tony (Jones) to find missing Franky and a host of others whose seemingly unrelated subplots eventually meet. Casting, lots of action, and Ritchie's dialogue are spot on. Ritchie's usual use of heavy Cockney accents are upstaged by Pitt's Gypsy pugilist and his much talked about thick-as-Guinness brogue which even the other characters can't decipher. The elaborate and sometimes confusing plotlines are aided by titles and narration and effective use of Ritchie's usual slo-mo, fast cutting, and split-screen.
