Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels|
Character Played: Soap (main character)
Synopsis: A brutally comic tale about a group of London friends who find themselves deep in debt to an East End tough, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is quick-paced, stylized, and highly entertaining. In his debut feature film, director-writer Guy Ritchie weaves a tangled web of shady, blithely eccentric characters and several storylines, all of them coming together in a gleeful explosion of murder and mayhem. When streetwise charmer Eddy (Nick Moran), the son of steely bar owner JD (Sting), botches a gambling scheme with his dad’s nemesis, porn king Hatchet Harry (P.H. Moriarty), he’s got one week to come up with 500,000 pounds or he loses his fingers--and so do his friends Tom (Jason Flemyng), Bacon (Jason Statham), and Soap (Dexter Fletcher). While the pals scheme to make the money, Harry indulges his penchant for valuable antique shot guns, stolen for him by a couple of inept burglars. Soon the missing guns, a paranoid group of marajuana growers, a mean-spirited debt collector (Vinnie Jones) and his young son, and a violent bunch of thugs, are all thrown together in this tightly-woven, genuinely funny story that takes its inspiration from old British comic gangster flicks like The League of Gentlemen and more recent films like Reservoir Dogs and The Usual Suspects.
