Genre- Action & Adventure

Awesome? Naa, too meek a word. Fantastic? Not up to it too. Fantabulous! Yup, that’s the word to describe this Guy Ritchie movie. A watertight script by a novice director-scriptwriter, amazingly lifelike characters, twists and turns at every corner- this movie is one in which you blink and you miss something wonderful. The dialogues are just too crazy, and the plot is way too complex and simple at the same time- 4 groups try to pull off some sort of heist/ con/ whatever of their own, and unfortunately (fortunately for us) end up screwing each other. The ending (what we call a KLPD in iit slang) probably sums up the movie- totally erratic and wonderfully real. Anyway, with my stock of adjectives running out, all i have to say is that if this is british humour/comedy/dark humour, then i’m hungry for more! This movie ranks right up there in my list of must-watch movies for everyone.
