Stealin' Stones and Breakin' Bones.
The second film from British director Guy Ritchie. Snatch tells an obscure story similar to his first fast-paced crazy character-colliding filled film “Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.” There are two overlapping stories here – one is the search for a stolen diamond, and the other about a boxing promoter who’s having trouble with a psychotic gangster.
Looks like Guy Ritchie really knows how to do an entertaining flick involving gangsters of all kinds with the most particular skills and abilities.
Once again, an after the great Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels he did and amazing job with Snatch. It could not have worked well because I think the themes are very similiar just with a few changes in the story, but the truth is the two are equally great!
He presents us the most hilarious characters, with the most excellent dialogues and a lot of memorable lines into a very well structured plot. His visual style and edition are once again amazing!
All of the performances are fantastic, especially Brad Pitt that it was my…
I tried, but I can't write a real review of this movie because it's too fucking awesome. If you haven't seen it, you need to step your game up.
This Snatch drinking game will get you fucked up (I do this all the time, it's amazing)

I am not a fan of Ritchie's hyper stylised way of film making. It is often crammed with unnecessary visual static that feels like him constantly trying to make us aware of how cool and talented he is.
And yet this film kicks all kinds of ass. The plot is all over the place and almost seems like a connected string of hilarious and action packed sketches. Where Ritchie fails to find any real coherence and only manages to provide us with the incidental bit of genius visual creativity, it is the cast that pulls through.
There is simply no performance that doesn't convince or entertain. They carry the material to greater heights and make this one of the finest…
I know that the films of Guy Ritchie tend to give a lot of people a lot of Omar Sharif these days, but if you take a butcher's at the ones he made earlier, they're pretty Robin.
Even so, I wasn't too Sheffield at the prospect of me lining up a Gordon and Gotch of this one mainly because his reputation tends to be on the floor these days. Not just as a director, but in general - he often comes across as a bit of a paper hat. This was all even despite the fact that many Bacardis out there think this one is even better than his Geoff Hurst one.
If I may cocoa, I thought it was…
"It's a fucking anti-aircraft gun Vincent!"
Ritchie hasn't done anything better or funnier. Great mix of quotable dialogue and memorable characters.
"I fucking hate Pikeys!"
Snatch is surprisingly great. Guy Richie is truly a talented director, and he shows it here. He crafts a film that's exciting, funny, and interesting all while putting is own unique spin on the crime drama.
The plot revolves around a diamond and people trying to get at it. That's really all there needs to be said. While this type of story has been done plenty of times, Richie makes it feel fresh. His style is great, and extremely entertaining. The script, written by Richie, is fantastic and hilarious. It's filled with British black comedy gold, and some truly great dialogue. While Guy's style isn't for everyone, I couldn't help but be massively entertained.
The cast is excellent, with Jason…
"Ya like dags?"
Snatch was a hilarious, well-written movie from start-to-finish. The crazy amount of characters added so much to the story that resulted in such a satisfying ending where it all came together. Brad Pitt was hilarious and the final boxing scene was spectacular. There are so many quotable lines and memorable scenes that will make Snatch a great movie to re-watch in the future.
I went with Daniele to see "Snatch," the new Guy Ritchie/Brad Pitt movie, much in the same vein as "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels." People get blown away for the loot, madness ensues etc etc. It was great, especially the Piker role by Brad Pitt, which was at time simultaneously funny and incoherent.
One of my favorite movies.
Fuck you it's great.
Lo que de verdad me enamoró de esta peli la primera vez que la vi fue su CONDENADO ritmo. La peli no dura 2 minutos en una misma escena, es adrenalina pura, y muy divertida. Una comedia negra de calidad, de las grandes. Muy al estilo 'Pulp Fiction', se nos presentan multitud de personajes al acto... y a partir de ahí la peli no para. No sé, me encanta. Que se pudra el que no le guste xD, es físicamente imposible aburrirse.
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels was a fantastic film which was made even better by the back story behind it all. Guy Ritchie put his all into that film - literally - and fortunately, it all went swimmingly. Enter Snatch. Now if any of you people out there loved Lock Stock as much as I did, do yourself a favour and see this movie as fast as you can.
Much like with Tarantino and Pulp Fiction there was a lot of pressure on Ritchie to 'bring home the bacon' (as he would probably say) with Snatch. Thankfully, he did it. Snatch keeps the same style as Lock, Stock. It has that terrific dark humour, simple, yet effective story and…
A friend was over and he wanted to watch this, so I watched it again.
