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 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…
Shöner Film, sehr geile Geschrieben und Super Schauspieler!
Guy Ritchie is often likened to Quentin Tarantino and even called a cheap imitator. However, Snatch is on par with or better than Tarantino's best films. Amazingly funny and witty dialogue, iconic characters, and a kinetic style of cinema make Snatch one of the better comedies I have ever seen.
Snatch was a very well written and well done film. I was extremely impressed with how well the fight scenes were coordinated and executed. This film wasn’t exactly organized, but it flowed well. All this being said, this still could’ve been better, the concept got old an hour in.
Great cinematography and kinetic editing didn't stop me from not really caring about what was happening on screen. There became a point where I just couldn't be bothered to follow along with the plot machinations anymore. It is pretty funny at times though.
Eine abgedrehte Story rund um einen Diamanten und viele verrückte Charaktere. Vielleicht etwas zu viel auf einmal.
Another one of my favourite crime comedies. This has one of those feuds in my head where I can't decide which one I prefer, this or Lock, Stock. Every viewing I prefer the more recent one but having done them back to back tonight it's now become even harder a choice! Yet again Guy Ritchie shows us he's a proper artist of style and fast, frenetic and lean substance. This amps up the laughter from Lock, Stock and puts you in the same world but without repeating itself or getting stale. The soundtrack is outstanding, like Lock, Stock, he really knows how to incorporate music into his films. The writing is unbeatable and the cinematography and editing is fucking perfect.…
I remembered thinking this was a bit bloated and over the top, but upon rewatching it, I found it to be fresh, fun and very funny. I had a great time with it, even if I had to keep turning the subtitles on to understand what they were saying.
Guy Ritchie wants to be Tarantino sooooooooo badly. And this is his piss poor attempt at Pulp Fiction (I think) except with terrible late 90s Prodigy music video direction and editing and bad joke after bad joke after lame comedy beat.
Brad Pitt is fun to watch though.
Some of the most fun I've had watching a movie
