though most of the actors weren’t exactly very well known [many
certainly are now] – they worked together wonderfully on this
film. Undoubtedly Vinnie Jones steals the show. Since his career as
a professional soccer player, he not only has the reputation of being
a tough guy, he's also excellent in playing this kind of roles in the
movies. It doesn't happen very often that someone who has not come from
an acting background is still able to act very well in a role that is
larger than the average cameo, but Vinnie Jones proves that it is possible.
One of the most quoteable movies in recent history, and rightly so.
Every character has their scene, and Ritchie never leaves the camera
standing. Fantastic, graceful, indulgent, emphatic, whatever you want
to call 'Lock, Stock', just make sure you appreciate how cool it is.
wait for the final line of Vinny Jones...
