Formula 51 is about an American master chemist who plans to score big on a once in a lifetime drug deal when all does not go as planned and he is soon entangled in a web of deceit. Elmo McElroy is a kilt-wearing, golf club-wielding Los Angeles native who has invented an illegal drug formula that he hopes will provide him with a last major score of 20 million dollars before he retires from a life of crime. He travels to Liverpool, England, where he hopes to find a buyer for his creation among the denizens of the city's rave scene, but his plans go awry when those who are in on the deal start turning up dead. Elmo's only protector is a chain-smoking, Yank-hating local hood named Felix De Souza, who reluctantly partners with the violence-prone American to finish the deal and cash in, sparking a gang war between Elmo's vengeful one-time employer, The Lizard; Felix's boss, Durant; crooked cop Virgil Kane; a beautiful assassin, who also happens to be Felix's ex-girlfriend; and an offbeat, yoga-practicing nightclub owner and mobster named Iki. This movie is rated R for drug content, violence, language and some sexuality
