Writer/director Guy Ritchie continues in mockney gangster vein with this follow-up to his 1998 hit 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'. In London, en route to deliver a stolen diamond to his employer Avi (Dennis Farina), thief Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) is ambushed by Russian mobster Boris the Blade (Rade Sherbedgia). At the same time, boxing promoters Turkish (Jason Statham) and Tommy (Stephen Graham) enter Irish gypsy fighter Mickey (Brad Pitt) in a fight run by local kingpin Brick Top (Alan Ford). Instead of throwing the fight as arranged, Mickey earns Brick Top's enmity by beating his opponent fair and square. Meanwhile, Avi travels to London and hires Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) to track down Franky and the diamond - which Brick Top has now found out about and decided to appropriate from Boris!

The package comes bundled with the 2009 bluray [ which contains all the supplemtary features - the 4K disc is bare-bones] - and the two versions could not look more different.
The 4K disc is incredibly sharp, and its colour temperature essentially turns the viewing experience on its head. How can I best describe it? It's like a black-and-white movie that has been tinted with blue-green.
It has a lovely intricate grain structure that swarms across the image which is much more muted than its bluray counterpart.
Sweat, blood, clothing textures, weaponry - all are magnificently captured at a resolution that far exceeds the original bluray release - it's as if Ritchie shot two movies at the one time and has been holding back this version until today.
The bit rate for this 4K pass is in the high 70s and 80s [ sometimes peaking in the 90s! ] and the result is astonishing, a completely different visual experience.
I suspect this disc is going to divide opinion in a major way - you'll either love this new look, or hate it.
Stick with the standard bluray.
Audio is nice in dolby atmos.
Great movie, but not impressed with 4k disc.
And yes, I have a very good setup "LG Cx oled calibrated"
The same load of great quotes as Lock Stock and you'll always recall the Russian reference and the one about pigs!
The inter linking story lines and the mix of actors are first class. I won't attempt to write up the story line, but it is something which should be on everyone's must watch list.
Brad Pitt plays an interesting part, very well I thought.
Vinnie Jones, looks really menacing.
It's a violent comedy, but the blood and guts are reserved.
What I mean is a lot of the violence is left to the imagination.
And the film is all the better for that.
I enjoyed it, first time I've seen it.
I think I will watch it again one day.
