"Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" (1998)

A group of young men have a perfectly legitimate plan to make money at a high stakes poker game. But the game is rigged and now they owe a gangster a lot of money. The plot gets more complicated from there with multiple plot lines and coincidental meetings.

I had heard a lot about this as a "must see" classic movie. I will admit is has style, like Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs. A very high body count, but I'm not sure of the bullet/fatality ratio because there are so many bullets.

It's basically a caper movie. with lots of violence. Very good, if you like that sort of thing.

Someone was talking about the bullet/fatality ratio of different directors in the commentary for Dr Who: The Caves of Androzani but I can't find anything about it on the internet.

BTW I watched Caves of Androzani with the commentary to see find out what the director thought he was doing. He was proud of the Shakespearean asides and melodramatic scenery chewing. *rolls eyes*
