Elmo McElroy is a streetwise American master chemist who heads to England to sell his special new formula – a powerful, blue concoction guaranteed to take you to ‘the 51st state.’ McElroy’s new product delivers a feeling 51 times more powerful than any thrill, any pleasure, any high in history. But his plans for a quick, profitable score go comically awry when he gets stuck in Liverpool with an unlikely escort and his ex-girlfriend and becomes entangled in a bizarre web of double-dealing and double-crosses.
User Reviews: Very few action movies actually succeed in being funny, but the witty screenplay of the 51st State will have you laughing throughout the entire film. Sam Jackson proves himself as the coolest man on the planet as he struts across the screen wearing a kilt and acting like a samurai warrior with a golf club instead of a sword. Rhys Ifans, as the over the top Iki, never fails to entertain with his hysterical antics. Robert Carlyle, Ricky Tomlinson, Emily Mortimer, and even Meatloaf form the rest of the cast which never fails to disappoint. The 51st State will take you on a ride through the drug and club world of Liverpool and it is worth the trip!
