Yeah, after years of seeing it in bits and pieces I finally watched it all the way through. Good, in a sorta Snatch-lite or Snatch: Prequel way. Guy Ritchie used the same tropes, character types, dialog and style, but perfected it with Snatch. In his first movie it was easy to see why Jason Statham became a popular action movie actor. He had a good grasp of the snappy, low key ironic patter that characterizes much of Ritchie's style. While I've enjoyed re-watching Snatch many times I'm not sure LS&2SB is something I'd go out of my way to watch again.
