The film opens with Frankie "Four Fingers" stealing a huge 86 karat diamond in Antwerp. With the help of a section of [[TheMafiya the Russian Mob]] that his boss is working with, Frankie is able to smuggle the diamond onto a plane, but his gun is taken by the Russians so as to not cause problems. Frankie is advised to see Boris, a local fence in London, if he wants a new gun. The Russian Gangster who took Frankie's gun, (who is actually Boris' brother) and Boris immediately begin conspiring on how to steal the diamond from Frankie before Frankie heads back home to America, without the deed leading back to them.

At this point we're introduced to Turkish and Tommy, who are the closest thing the film has to main characters. The two are shady but basically decent entrepreneurs who dabble in unlicensed boxing and slot machines. Turkish, who has a reputation for running honest fights, has a bout coming up between his best fighter and one managed by monstrous local gangster Brick Top. There's just one problem for Turkish: his boxer gets knocked out and seriously injured mere days before the bout by Mickey, a bareknuckle boxing [[UsefulNotes/IrishTravellers Irish Traveller]]. Without a fighter, Turkish recruits Mickey to fill the empty spot, but Brick Top forces Turkish to fix the fight as compensation for the change in boxers. Turkish is uncomfortable being in Brick Top's debt and doubtful whether he can trust Mickey to go down as instructed. Both of these fears prove to be well founded.

Meanwhile, Boris has decided that the best way to go about getting the diamond without seeming to be involved is to prey on Frankie's gambling addiction. Boris gives Frankie a tip about how the upcoming fight with Brick Top's fighter is supposed to be fixed, which sends Frankie off to the bookie to place a bet on it. Boris then hires a pair of pawnbrokers (Sol and Vincent) to ambush him at Brick Top's bookie. When Frankie disappears, his boss and New York crime kingpin Avi heads to London and recruits the enforcer-for-hire Bullet-Tooth Tony to find Frankie and the diamond.

Added DiffLines:

* RevolversAreForAmateurs: Nobody in this film uses revolvers with any real effectiveness. Boris sells [[ReliablyUnreliableGuns dodgy revolvers]] to unsuspecting customers like Tommy, while favouring a semi-automatic himself. Sol attempts to use a revolver to shoot the door off the bookie's to escape and ends up destroying the bag full of coppers he and Vincent have stolen.

to:

* PlethoraOfMistakes PlethoraOfMistakes: Turkish and Tommy are only looking to buy a caravan from the travellers and end up down money, hospitalising their fighter and in deep shit with Brick Top when they use Mickey as a replacement. This has the knock on effect of messing up Sol, Vincent and Tyrone's attempt at robbing Brick Top's betting shop, as there's no money there.

* Foreshadowing: Tony's introduction establishes him as a polite man. Later, he talks down Vinny and co. rather than resort to violence. It all set-ups his EvenEvilHasStandards scene.
