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…
At least it made fun of itself. Well I think it did. I dunno if I'm just not in the right mood but I just really wasn't feeling this
I enjoyed this one a bit more than Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, maybe because I could understand what they were saying. Though the plot meanders and Guy Ritchie's style can be exhausting at times there are some great performances by Alan Ford, Brad Pitt and Jason Statham and it's fun to watch.
This film is fucked.
Proper fucked that is.
”You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.”
1. It can be noted with the first twenty minutes of Snatch that it’s more of a high-charged, stylistic fairy tale than a believable crime story that you’re supposed to take at face value.
2. The general narrative of Snatch is pretty amped up and fast paced. New faces come and go, often with a quirky nickname of sorts, faster than you’ll be able to count. The story itself is moderately convoluted, making numerous assumptions and jumps that you might not fully process until several scenes later, after the moment has come and gone.
3. I wonder if Edgar Wright was a fan of Guy Ritchie? You can see the similarities…
warning: a pretty long and weirdly personal review
Snatch isn't a 5-star film. If I were rating it objectively, it's much more of a 4-star film. But I just can't not give it a full rating.
You see, there are a lot of movies that instantly make me nostalgic or that the first time I watched them was so memorable, I have an unusual amount of love for them. Most of them are black comedies, for some reason: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, In Bruges, Snatch and some others. I clearly remember the day I first watched what is Guy Ritchie's masterpiece.
I hate sleeping late, it's something I just don't do. But it was a Saturday, by the end of…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
OMG Brad Pitt is so good in this movie.
The movie just spins and spins into a more and more interesting black comedy. I love the scenes with the Pikeys, especially during the final illegal boxing match.
Bueno, pues POR FIN he visto Snatch.
No puedo decir que sea de mis favoritas de Guy Ritchie porque todavía tengo varias películas de su filmografía pendientes pero madre mía, qué película.
Un repartazo muy diverso, una fotografía y una banda sonora geniales, estilo a rebosar, una historia coral contada estupendamente gracias a un montaje LOQUÍSIMO, personajes carismáticos y momentos muy memorables...
Puede que no sea mi favorita de Guy Ritchie, pero puedo decir que me ha encantado y no puedo esperar a verla otra vez (en inglés en este caso). Si no la habéis visto, que lo dudo, no os la perdáis. Todo un peliculón.
Nice film, good story and good development
Great movie. Didn't enjoy it as much second time around, but still enjoyed it none the less.
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…
