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)
Take a sip every time you can't understand something Mickey (Brad Pitt) just said.

Take a sip every time you see a pig or the word "pig" is uttered.
Take a sip every time the film reveals an awesome character name.
Take a shot every time the dog squeaks.

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,…
"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!"
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…
Now that I've reviewed "Lock,Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" here's what I have to say about "Snatch".
Very similar to Lock, Stock just with better cast and a bigger budget.
Needless to say, if I like his previous movie it's obvious that I liked this one, but form me "Lock,Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" is a better film.
A really stylish and handsome looking film with great cast, acting, direction and script. Just can't take your eyes of it. A wonderful film in every way.
The movie was produced by Matthew Vaughn and you can definitely feel his touch here and there throughout the film. Of course credit has to be given to Guy Ritchie as well. Just like the usual suspects the ensemble cast is what stands out the most to me. Especially an interesting choice for Brad Pitt.
A hybrid between a comedy and a crime film? And it manages to actually be funny while not being too unrealistic? My oh my
No quiero sonar cursi, pero ésta fue mi primera película clasificación C que vi en el cine <3
Y todo lo que hay que aprender en la vida, se puede ver en Snatch. El azar, las coincidencias, la venganza. El mejor consejo: escoge bien a tus colegas.
La escena de la pelea final me representa. Cuando cae al agua, ve los pasos en la lona... y como fénix, regresa al knock out... una belleza en todo su esplendor.
No matter how often I watch Snatch, I never fail to be entertained. For a movie so similar in tone and style to Lock, Stock and Two Smocking Barrels, it is light years ahead on a performance and execution level. A lot of the enjoyment comes from the various plots unfolding and interesting so to say anything at all would be to spoil the fun. Suffice it to say that London and New York based gangsters, gypsies, an Eastern European arms dealer and two low-rent boxing promoters become entangled in a deliciously funny and violent caper with stunning visuals and an thumping soundtrack. Stand outs include Brad Pitt, Jason Statham (before he was Jason Statham, Action Man) and Rade Serbedzija,…
"Do you know what 'nemesis' means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. Personified in this case by an 'orrible cunt...me."
Much like Lock Stock, it's a lot of fun, but now it's on a much bigger scale, with an incredible boxing scene. Surprised that a certain character dies so quickly...
Guy Ritchie at the peak of his powers. Great twists and turns, funny as hell crime comedy done just right. Great action set pieces with career's best performances from Brad Pitt as Mickey the pikey and Vinnie Jones as Bullet tooth Tony. Farina, Del Toro, Statham and Stephen Graham, it's a great movie guy's cast. The climatic boxing match with Oasis's song "Fuckin' in the Bushes"blasting and the pikey reaction is badass heaven.
