Fave film aged 12: Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels

With four-letter words and violence by the bucketload, Guy Ritchie's gangster flick had everything a 12-year-old boy could want - and it still does.

Alex Hess, The Guardian, 7th July 2020

"Directed by Guy Ritchie" has become useful shorthand for "dismal Mockney gangster tripe" but this, Ritchie's debut, isn't bad. A group of feckless London lads have a week to pay off a £500,000 debt to a crime boss - so take to crime themselves to find the money.

Michael Deacon, The Telegraph, 23rd February 2011
