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.
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…
"do you know what 'nemesis' means? a righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent. personified in this case by an 'orrible old cunt... me."
this is literally the best crime film ever made. not up for argument.
Watched 'Snatch' for the first time as an adult and really enjoyed it.
It has a 'Pulp Fiction'-esque feel to it with an entertaining array of characters and storylines. There's even an arc about a fighter needing to throw a fight.
That aside, this is all Guy Ritchie. The film oozes with his charismatic style and he deserves considerable praise for this.
I didn't really like the editing, especially in the beginning. I almost stopped watching already in the beginning. Combining the stories together wasn't fully working, it is done much better for example in Pulp Fiction which this movie resembled a bit. I also don't know why the gypsies weren't wearing suits. Do the British gypsies have different habits and culture than in Finland, I don't know, but it made me a bit confused.
Despite those things, this was entertaining movie. Brutal a times, though. Alan Ford was the nastiest villain I've seen for awhile, in a good way. And for once, Jason Statham was somewhat natural in his acting, and Brad Pitt surprised me in a good way. All those movies I've seen from him, I think this was his best performance. Time flied while watching this movie.
im so bored of movies with male ensemble casts :-( pls stop this epidemic

Snatch ist sehr unterhaltsam, schnell geschnitten und hat viele verschiedene Charaktere die Storytechnisch schlau miteinander verknüpft sind.
Auch wenn man manchmal den Überblick bei so vielen Schauspielern verliert, hat mir der Film sehr spaß gemacht. Vorallem die Freeze Frames und Bilddrehungen / Animationen fand ich super.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
tbh this would be a five star review if benicio del toro hadn't been killed off before the one hour mark </3
Very similar feel and vibe and layout to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Which isn't a bad thing! I'd rather have more of this than 50 Superhero films a year to be honest.
Is this not the height of British cinema?! It's also like the second Fight Club we never had.
Divertido e fácil de assistir, mas não é um filme memorável.
