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 and 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…
I like dags
In “Snatch”, Guy Ritchie revisits London’s gangster underground scene with the same style, snappy dialogue, dark comedy and interesting characters as his previous picture, and the one that brought him to fame, “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”. If you loved Ritchie’s first film, you’ll love this.
Similarly to “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”, “Snatch” introduces viewers to multiple groups of characters, three in this case, who will eventually collide in an explosive manner. The plot may be quite tortuous, but in the end (in the very end), revolves around an 86 carat diamond stolen from Antwerp by Jewish gangster Frankie Four Fingers (Benicio del Toro) which eventually goes missing in London. Many of Ritchie’s faithful actors from his…
man i don't know between 3.5 or 4. on one hand i kind of had trouble getting into the movie at first but on the other hand it was!!! SO!!! WELL!!! DONE!!!!
Easily Guy Ritchie's best film, SNATCH is a very funny, cartoonishly violent and scatological gangster picture that build on the success of LOCK, STOCK AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS and surpassed it, thanks to a brilliant script and a terrific cast that includes Brad PItt as an Irish gypsy with an impenetrable accent, a never better Jason Statham and a very young Stephen Graham. The plot involves a very large stolen diamond, a couple of bare-knuckle boxing matches and some of the most incompetent gangsters on either side of the Atlantic. A British classic.
"In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary... come again?"
Hosting a bunch of bad guys and their fight for a missing diamond. They tried the Quentin Tarantino's way of making and it worked... but not as good as QT's. Liked their way of mixing the thrills & intensity with humorous dialogues and scenes, which adds new flavor indeed. And if u wonder what's a dog doing in this movie watch out for some hilarious turns @ the end. Overall a good watch.
couldn't tell you a single thing that happened in this movie besides the diamond benecio del toro and brad pitt deserved better why is guy ritchie like this
Really good ensemble!
Brad Pitt is on the screen. I see his mouth move. I hear noises. But I have absolutely no clue what he is saying.
Films where their style fills the screen so absolutely, substance is but an afterthought.
Only added some that I've seen,…
Thought this'd be interesting... These are films which the title received some pretty absurd translations on Brazil. On the notes…
