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,…
Guy Ritchie has never made a better film than Snatch. It ticks all the boxes in comedy, profanity, and quotable dialogue that has entered every fabric of popular culture here in the UK. From "I hate fuckin' Pikeys", to "Do you know what Nemesis means?", it's a laugh-a-minute riot of geezers, pikeys, Anti-semite Cossack sluts, pig-farm owning gangsters, with an 86-carat diamond at its heart. Oh and Brad Pitt shits next to a caravan while uttering a mixture of unintelligible broken English, told you it was funny. Still fresh as fuck over fifteen years later, even Jason Statham is great here alongside a never better Vinnie Jones, except that time when he squeezed Gazza's balls back in 1988, priceless.

This is an example of an film's ending bumping it up from a 4 Star to a 5 Star.
I think this is a pretty great and fun gangster film. There are great comedic scenes yet it is also brutal as hell. Phenomenal cast including great turns by Dennis Farina and Brad Pitt. And it's aging well. I enjoy it more now than I did in 2000.
I love british comedy .. And I adore british crime movies ..
And Guy Ritchie is the best in mixing those two things ..
What makes Snatch so good is that every character is fun and fresh and in the grand scheme of things they all work great together .. Brad Pitt and Jason Statham are so cool here that I've enjoyed every on screen moment they've had ..
I'll definitely watch it again ..
A Quote to Live By :
"Every now and then, you gotta do something against your principles
Basically you have to forget you've got any"
If even the subtitles can't figure out what Brad Pitt is saying, can anything?
Hilariously insane. Great pacing. "In Bruges" with two big balls.
"Shut up and sit down, you big, bald fuck."
Not many people like that Guy Ritchie fella.
But he's fine by me thanks to this film.
The perfect storm of an amazing cast, in-your-face direction that works and doesn't feel unnecessarily showy and a script that literally devastates me with it's inordinate amount of quotable dialogue.
"Listen, you fucking fringe, if I throw a dog a bone, I don't want to know if it tastes good or not. You stop me again whilst I'm walking, and I'll cut your fucking Jacobs off."
Favorite film of all time. Never get tired of watching this.
Follow Ryley Mann, that's who I got the idea from. PLEASE READ. Look at what films I have seen before…
