Various groups of London gangsters and Irish travellers try to steal a diamond back from an American jewel thief.
Guy Ritchie's follow up to Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels is practically cut from the same cloth with many of the same actors playing virtually the same characters. However, the screen lights up whenever Brad Pitt appears, playing an unintelligible, bare-knuckle-fighting Irish gypsy. 
The film proved hugely popular, especially on British soil, but there's plenty of other crime capers which are far better.
