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.
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)

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…
Guy Ritchie's follow-up to his breakthrough feature may have the very same blood flowing through its veins that was present in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels but it nonetheless succeeds as yet another prime example of its genre(s) that offers significant upgrades in all filmmaking departments, further enhances the director's style & visual flair, and still remains his finest work to date.
Set in London, the story of Snatch follows multiple segments concerning various characters who weave in & out of mainly two entwined plots. The first plot deals with the search for an 86-carat diamond that was stolen during a heist while the second one is about two boxing promoters who get pulled into the world of match fixing by…
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…
Snatch has always been one of my favourite comedies, there's not a year since I was a kid that I don't watch it, it's just hilarious, you can find a genius piece of [visual/physical or lyrical] comedy in ever single scene; it's actually unbelievable to see that the film is not even tagged as a 'comedy' on Letterboxd because it's really few the number of films that make me laugh as this one and that don't lose their charm/power on a rewatch. I'm not sure this is Guy Ritchie's best film, but, no matter what, Snatch is a brilliant crime-comedy that truly achieves what it sets out to do.
If Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction was a film about intelligent gangsters,…
This was a whole lot of a lot of different things, but mostly, this was a whole lot of fun.
Snatch combines the best parts of the 90’s ‘new noir’ classics like those from Tarantino and the Coens that are laced with multiple story threads and then Ritchie amps things up by injecting just enough Monty Python DNA to ramp up the absurdity without going overboard into comic book or lampooning territory. I seem to remember his debut Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels pioneered this, but it’s been to remember it accurately. One thing I do know, is that the absurdist irreverent style reminded me of the Wright / Pegg Cornetto Trilogy.
I’m amazed at how well the humor…

An incredibly entertaining and often hilarious black comedy.
How one film manages to be so entertaining and quotable is beyond me.
Incredible cinematography, incredible weaving of various subplots together, incredible how Ritchie brings the story full circle by the end, resolving all of the subplots. Incredible how the film's internal logic hold up throughout. Too bad Ritchie had to meet Madonna and get all of his inspiration, um, swept away. Heh.
"Yes, London. You know: fish, chips, cup 'o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins... London."
Snatch is a film that I saw several years ago and greatly enjoyed. Why it took me so long to rewatch it is beyond me, because it really is a great movie. Snatch is one of those films that has such a great sense of style throughout. The editing is fantastic. The script is excellent, with an entertaining story containing plenty of surprises along the way, as well as some amazing dialogue. The film is also pretty damn funny. I found myself cracking up on more than one occasion.
Perhaps the best thing about Snatch (which is saying a lot) is the…

Take "Reservoir Dogs." Make it stylized, more funny, and set it in England. Plus, change the characters so that they all kind of know one another. That's "Snatch," an entertaining and memorable film starring the always-awesome Jason Statham. The best actor in this film is Brad Pitt again playing a funny, memorable fighter who is incredibly incomprehensible and hilarious. The best part of the film is the humor, which is always a key component in a Guy Ritchie film. This is his funniest film to date, and every character is fantastic and funny. From the awkward situations to how everyone knows everyone, this film is great. I do have a bit of a concern that it isn't for everyone. The…
Snatch is overall a decently amusing film but sells itself short due to a haphazard plot-line and underdeveloped characters. The entire point of the film is to have all of these seemingly unconnected crime stories weave together in moments of brilliant comedic serendipity, but the execution of this premise is not always deftly performed. This movie is without a doubt fun to watch but one cannot help but feeling that it could have been better.
The all-star cast headed by level-headed Statham and an off the rails gypsy version of Brad Pitt is an absolute pleasure. Statham plays the narrator and straight man in this otherwise zany crime underworld, and for good reason. This movie needs an anchor for its…
Funny and quirky characters, a story that fits perfectly and the visual style is amazing.
I love this movie. It's just so damn fun and entertaining. It's as stylish as hell, but it never feels pretentious or artsy, and the story is convoluted but not confusing. It's funnier than most straight comedies (gotta love that British humour!) and the cast is terrific. Brad Pitt steals the show, but Statham, Farina, Del Toro, Vinnie Jones and everyone else are just as memorable. Some bits of it are a tad too serious (the part with Pitt's caravan going up in flames specifically), and it's a fairly shallow film, but it's insanely rewatchable and immensely enjoyable.
