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'd pay good money to see Brad Pitt from Snatch fight Brad Pitt from Fight Club while Brad Pitt from Twelve Monkeys cheers them on from the stands next to Brad Pitt from 12 Years a Slave being chill af
Unoriginal. Entertaining. Lives off gimmick of separate stories coming together. It's ok.
Why doesn't more people know about this classic.
Pikeys man, Pikeys!
Great movie. Love the story and how intertwined the different groups are. Mickey (Pitt) is hilarious.

Violent heist yarn distinguishes itself with off-beat camera work, editing and storytelling, not to mention some unforgettable characters. Brisk pace and often humorous narration lends a bit of a "Goodfellas" feel without seeming derivative, and there are plenty of twists and turns to sustain interest. At this point I think I've seen about half of Guy Richie's films and so far this is probably his best.
Snatch is all about energy. A lot of films have energy, but not so many have it quite as pure as Snatch.
Rapid pacing allows for a constant push forward among a large cast and intertwining plotlines. Combine this with snappy, hilarious writing and a memorable ensemble and you got yourself a blast of a film. The plot isn't exactly breaking new ground, given that it's a repeat of a formula already established by Guy Ritchie. But regardless it's a lot of fun and very sharp.
Brad Pitt has a memorable role as an incomprehensible gypsy boxer and ends up being the highlight of every scene he's in. The rest of the cast are all enjoyable as well, pulling off…
At times hysterically funny, occasionally overplotted, but always engaging. I hadn't seen it for some time, so seeing it on the big screen was twice as much fun.
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results…
