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…
"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…
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…
This is one of my favourite films. I think it's one of the best British films out there. It is just superb. I love petty much everything about Snatch, I'd go as far to say it's a masterpiece.
It's rare that I'll watch a film and enjoy watching every single character, but everyone on the film brings something different, something funny and make Snatch so enjoyable. There's Bullet Tooth Tony, Frankie Four Fingers, Cousin Avi, Tommy, Turkish, Doug the Head, Brick Top and many more amazingly good characters. I mean, Brad Pitt plays a bare-knuckle boxing Gypsy for crying out loud!
The dialogue is brilliant, and delivers so many quotable lines such as:
''Boris the bullet dodger, why do they…
★★★★★ "Yes, London. You know: fish, chips, cup 'o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins... LONDON."
Guy Ritchie sure knows how to make a video clip. This movie is one of his best in my humble opinion. Lots of British humor, plot twists and a bunch of different stories that are all connected. Every one of the cast is unique in what they do and are essential to the plot. The songs and audio effects of the movie gives it a video-clip-like-look that Guy knows exactly how to do. Greats to see more than one time.
Critical Overall: ★★★★
Very crazy movie... I loved
what a good movie!
Modern day British Classic
"I fucking hate pikeys."
Snatch is definitely one of the greatest films ever made. This is a perfectly made British comedy. I'm a huge fan of Guy Ritchie's talented and beautiful direction, as well as his always sharp and flawlessly written blend of comedy with an engaging story. The characters are interestingly colorful and tend to leave you with a strong longing for more back story. The dialogue is untouchable; each line is pure gold and superbly constructed. Absolutely on-point and magnificently cast; Brad Pitt's performance is one for the ages. This film is a must-see. Highly recommended. One of my favorite films of all time. Guy Ritchie's best flick in my opinion.
MOVIE A DAY FOR A YEAR - DAY 162
This is my new favorite performance by Brad Pitt. I love his character so much, and the emotions that he exudes throughout the film. Snatch is not a film to be taken lightly, but it shouldn't be taken very seriously either. It's funny. It's a comedic movie, but it's complex and that shouldn't be forgotten. Every character and every storyline is important, so just because you like Cousin Avi the best, it doesn't mean you don't have to pay attention during the parts centered around Mickey. It's all important.
This is one of the most multidimensional films that I have ever seen. The witty humor is on par with just about any comedy I've seen in a while. The drama is sparse, but still great enough to create a bit of tension now and then. It's really not action, but the fight scenes and the gunplay are top notch. Guy Ritchie is the second coolest directors making movies today, after Quentin Tarantino. The actors are all pitch perfect, including one of my favorite Brad Pitt performances. There's a lot I could say about this movie, but I'd rather you see for yourself.
