Film information

Story: A six-volume set of modern day gangster films. In 'Love, Honour and Obey' (2000), Jonny (Jonny Lee Miller) is an Eastender fed up with his boring job as a courier. When his best friend (Jude Law) offers him a job working for his uncle (Ray Winstone), a notorious gangland leader, Jonny jumps at the chance and is soon part of the most feared gang in North London. But Jonny hungers for a bigger slice of the pie and soon starts a feud with a feared South London crime gang. In 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' (1998), after losing all their money to London crime boss Hatchet Harry (P.H. Moriarty) in a card game, twentysomething friends Eddy (Nick Moran), Tom (Jason Flemyng), Soap (Dexter Fletcher) and Bacon (Jason Statham) decide to steal from their drug-dealing neighbour, Dog (Frank Harper). Using guns stolen from burglars in the employ of Harry, the quartet carry out their heist, leaving their money at Eddy's. However, as they set about disposing of the evidence, they are unaware that there is more to their firearms than they thought... 'The Krays' (1990), is the story of the infamous Kray twins, Ronnie and Reggie (Gary and Martin Kemp), notorious in Britain for their crimes as controlling gangsters of London's East End in the 1960s. The film begins with their childhood, charting their rise to power through the 1950s, and watching as their unnaturally close relationship crumbles alongside their criminal empire. In 'Layer Cake' (2004), 'X' (Daniel Craig) is a successful, smooth-talking cocaine dealer - respected among London's crime elite - whose plan is to bankroll enough cash to make an early retirement from 'business' and lead a quiet, crime-free life. He sees the opportunity to make a final score when big crime boss Jimmy Price (Kenneth Cranham) asks him to track down Charlotte Ryder (Nathalie Lunghi), the wayward daughter of his old friend, Eddie (Michael Gambon). Complicating matters are 2 million pounds' worth of Grade A drugs, a neo-Nazi sect and endless 'layers' of deals and double-deals... In 'Snatch' (2000), en route in London to deliver a stolen diamond to his employer, Avi (Dennis Farina), thief Franky Four Fingers (Benicio del Toro) is ambushed by Russian mobster Boris the Blade (Rade Sherbedgia). At the same time, boxing promoters Turkish (Statham) and Tommy (Stephen Graham) enter Irish gypsy fighter Mickey (Brad Pitt) in a fight run by local kingpin Brick Top (Alan Ford). Instead of throwing the fight as arranged, Mickey earns Brick Top's enmity by beating his opponent fair and square. Meanwhile, Avi travels to London and hires Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) to track down Franky and the diamond - which Brick Top has now found out about and decided to appropriate from Boris! Finally, 'Bronson' (2008), paints a brutally violent portrait of Britain's most notorious prisoner, Charles Bronson, who has spent 34 years of his life in prison, and 28 of those in solitary confinement. As a teenager in the early 1970s, Bronson (Tom Hardy) is jailed for seven years after robbing a post office. During his sentence he becomes increasingly violent and re-styles himself as a hardened criminal, convinced that his new persona will bring him the notoriety and fame he craves.
