When a Russian mobster orchestrates a crooked land deal, millions of dollars are up for grabs, and all of London's criminal underworld wants in on the action. Everyone from a dangerous crime lord to a sexy accountant, a corrupt politician and down-on-their-luck petty thieves conspire, collude and collide with one another in an effort to get rich quick.
Action - This is a violent, stylish, profanity-heavy crime caper with dark
humor, much like director Guy Ritchie's cult favorite first two
films. The target audience is the young adult male audience. Some
may find the thick British accents and the complex twists of the plot
a little hard to follow.
A dangerous ride into high crime and low life in
contemporary London, where real estate has supplanted drugs as the biggest market,
and criminals are its most enthusiastic entrepreneurs. But for anyone looking to get in –
from small-time crook One Two (Gerard Butler) to shady Russian billionaire Uri
Obomavich (Karel Roden) – there's only one man to see: Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson).
A mobster from the old school, Lenny knows the right wheels to grease and has
his hand on the throat of any bureaucrat, broker or gangster that matters. With one
phone call, Lenny can make the red tape disappear. But as Lenny's right-hand man
Archy (Mark Strong) tells him, London is ground zero for the changing times, with
mobsters from the East, hungry criminals from the streets, and everyone in
all vying to change the rules of commerce and crime.
With millions up for grabs, all of London's criminal underworld conspires, colludes
and collides with one another in an effort to take their cut. But as high rollers and petty
criminals alike jockey for dominance, the true prize of one multi-million-dollar deal will fall
into the hands of a junkie rock star (Toby Kebbell) – Lenny's stepson, presumed dead
but very much alive.
