17 Movies Like Lock stock and two smoking barrels

Longtime pals and low-level crooks Eddie, Tom, Soap, and Bacon pool together a total of £100,000 in order to enable Eddie, a brilliant card sharp, to participate in one of “Hatchet” Harry Lonsdale’s high-stakes three-card brag games in London. The game is fixed, and as a result, Harry finds up owing his buddies a total of £500,000. After that, Harry dispatches Big Chris, his debt collector, to make certain that the quartet pays up the bill within a week’s time.

Harry is also interested in a pair of expensive antique Holland & Holland shotguns that are going to be auctioned off, so he has his enforcer Barry “the Baptist” hire two criminals, Gary and Dean, to take them from a nobleman who is bankrupt. The firearms are up for auction. It turns out that both of them are extremely unskilled, and they unknowingly sell the shotguns to a local fence known as Nick “the Greek.” Barry uses his authority as a criminal to coerce the two into returning the pistols. Eddie comes home one day and overhears his neighbours, a band of robbers lead by a vicious man named “Dog,” plotting a robbery on some cannabis producers who are loaded with cash and narcotics. Eddie sees this as an opportunity to get in on the action.

Eddie communicates this knowledge to the group with the intent that they will rob the neighbours as soon as they return from committing their theft. Tom goes to Nick the Greek to get firearms in order to get ready for the robbery, and he ends up purchasing two antique shotguns from Nick.
