Johnny Was, I have been.......By JediSi (301 reviews) from Kent , 09 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]ROBBED of nearly two hours of my life watching this drivel.
I love Snatch, Lock Stock, Gangster No1, Sexy Beast, Hard Men, etc. and this comes nowhere close. Even 'The Business' puts this in the shade. Not Vinnies best career move and as for Lennox Lewis........he should've stayed at home. Extremely dodgy acting, even dodgier accents, and a plot that's just nothing. Some of the action scenes are good, but not many. I was really looking forward to watching this and was left bitter and disappointed. I don't like dissing films, but this really was dire. Its not the fault of anyone inparticular (maybe director Mark Hammond) but none of it was any good and it was all put together in such a poor fashion, the whole film was just rubbish. Don't make the same mistake I did. Give it a miss !

Lock Stock it isn"tBy Mokey50 (6 reviews) from Barnstaple , 01 Oct 2011not good but not bad, Yeah! it was o.k sort of film dull in parts but i like vinnie jones lock stock being a good example.
Bloody AwfulBy a customer from Surrey , 29 Mar 2010I like Vinny Jones but this was awful. He can do alot better. What on earth Lennox Lewis was in it for i just don't know. He was a good boxer but an actor,no!
