Totally bummed. I thought this might be a "B" movie just because I was surprised I had never heard of it when it has some of my favorite actors and it was more like a "C" movie. I even felt bad re-posting on here because I felt like it was a waste that I ended watched it. But some reviews raved, so maybe it was just me.

A terribly underrated movie that sadly gets passed over. I stumbled upon this gem in my netflix instant que, was bored one night and watched it. I was not disappointed in the least. Its clever, subtle and shot with a beautiful style. Instantly one of my top ten movies.
If you want be smarter, you have to play a smarter opponent.

"This film is a perfect case of how a filmaker can be crucified for doing something completely different, intellectual, and to experiment, and push his style even further beyond most people's comprehension. This film is a masterpiece, period. This is the biggest psychological ride you will take since " The Usual Suspects". You'll probably have to have two viewings to fully inhale the mastery of this story, the whole film is a chess game of self exploration, with a serious, and stylish noirish comic book feel, especially from it's charecters. This is not Snatch, and this is not Lock, Stock, this is Guy Ritchie executing one of the smartest films I have ever seen in my life. Don't listen to what you've heard, people are in LOVE with Snatch, and Lock Stock, and just want to see it copied by him over, and over, that's why we have the sub par "Rock-N-Rolla" . Guy Ritchi, as well as Jason Statham prove that their bigger than that, and that they should keep moving forward, and not backwards (Rock-N-Rolla, and Jason's hollywood action fare).

"I watched this movie randomly last Saturday night, and it blew me away. I went to bed in awe of the magnificence of it. If you are willing to see a movie that will make you think and question yourself, then this is a must see. Another reviewer gives a detailed account of the stylistic features, so I wanted to add my two cents."

"Despite the trend towards negativity in the other reviews this movie has received here, this film was in fact an excellent movie. No it was not a Lock Stock or Snatch type of movie, no it did not follow the mold of some of these movies Guy Ritchie has done in the past few years, but it was still an excellent work.
The acting is trashed because the characters being portrayed are not your usual characters, and so what is actually an extremely difficult role very well done is seen as poor acting. The film is confusing because it is meant to have depth, to make you think, and unlike Lock Stock and Snatch it has a theme. This movie has a MESSAGE. It is not a clear message because it is not an easy one to understand, and I'm not even sure if the makers of the movie meant it to come out this way, but there is a definite message in this movie that is clearer and more effectively communicated than about any other movie I've seen which touches similar topics.
In this movie you still get the gangster/mobster type professional killer characters, you still get the feel and plot type of a Snatch or Lock Stock movie, and the plot is as good or better than those movies, but in addition you have a depth and richness of meaning that was not present in those earlier works. While unconventional, and not easily understood to those looking for mindless action and excitement, this is a truly great movie and stands apart as one of a kind for all it attempts and, more importantly, PULLS OFF in a manner that, if you're open to it, will truly stun you. I won't even attempt to discuss the meaning of this movie in a mere review, I'll just say there is meaning in a way I wish more movies had the guts to attempt. See the movie, watch it multiple times, and I hope you will understand the message there. It is well worth the time."
