  Released with little fanfare, "Formula 51" doesn't defy expectations, because there are none. It turns out to be a startling load of fun — a rollicking action comedy and buddy picture that owes a bit to the violent hysteria of Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" and the British underworld hijinks of Guy Ritchie's "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels." The first indication that "Formula 51" might be worth a look is the top-billed presence of the combustible Samuel L. Jackson ("Shaft") as kilt-wearing Elmo McElroy, a master chemist reluctantly in the employ of a Los Angeles drug lord (Meat Loaf Aday). Elmo decides to cash out by selling the formula for his new designer drug — 51 times more powerful than any other recreational narcotic — to an English mobster. So he takes off for Liverpool, where he teams up with a pugnacious "fixer" played by quirky UK leading man Robert Carlyle ("The Full Monty"). A sly hit woman (Emily Mortimer of "Lovely & Amazing") and a pack of skinheads are on the duo's tail. It's mirthful mayhem, as Jackson and Carlyle play off one another with verve.
