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 & 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.
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…
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)

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…
I know that the films of Guy Ritchie tend to give a lot of people a lot of Omar Sharif these days, but if you take a butcher's at the ones he made earlier, they're pretty Robin.
Even so, I wasn't too Sheffield at the prospect of me lining up a Gordon and Gotch of this one mainly because his reputation tends to be on the floor these days. Not just as a director, but in general - he often comes across as a bit of a paper hat. This was all even despite the fact that many Bacardis out there think this one is even better than his Geoff Hurst one.
If I may cocoa, I thought it was…
"It's a fucking anti-aircraft gun Vincent!"
Ritchie hasn't done anything better or funnier. Great mix of quotable dialogue and memorable characters.
"I fucking hate Pikeys!"
Snatch is surprisingly great. Guy Richie is truly a talented director, and he shows it here. He crafts a film that's exciting, funny, and interesting all while putting is own unique spin on the crime drama.
The plot revolves around a diamond and people trying to get at it. That's really all there needs to be said. While this type of story has been done plenty of times, Richie makes it feel fresh. His style is great, and extremely entertaining. The script, written by Richie, is fantastic and hilarious. It's filled with British black comedy gold, and some truly great dialogue. While Guy's style isn't for everyone, I couldn't help but be massively entertained.
The cast is excellent, with Jason…
So excessively energetic it becomes exhausting after the hour mark. Ritchie's style of writing is "create insane gangsters, put them in ridiculous situations, comedy ensues". So similar to the actually good Lock, Stock that hadn't I known better I would have taken it as the big-budget remake. Dialogue ranges from cool to vomit-inducing, often in the same scene. There are three characters in the film so unfunny they could belong to a Marlon Wayans "comedy". Despite being awesome and having lots of screentime, Jason Statham amounts to nothing more than a glorified cameo.
The actors give all they can but Ritchie's poor writing doesn't allow them to be anything but merely cool or dumb gangster. It's like an exercise in anti-character development.
I liked the part when Lucky Star plays. It was a nice romantic gesture. Gives me hope for happy matrimonies. Guy Ritchie must have recieved a good laid as a result.
El método de edición, la historia entrecruzada y los diálogos efectivos la hacen muy disfrutable.
"ti piacciono i cuni"
Like a British Pulp Fiction - great cast, connection after connection between the stories and an iconic soundtrack. A cockney crime caper of epic proportions. "And...a dog!"
Special mention to Brad Pitt's nigh-incomprehensible faux-Irish accent, Vinnie Jones' speech in the pub (legend) and Boris the Blade in general.
One thing's for sure...you'll never look at bacon the same way again.
I like dags and I really liked this film. Guy Ritchie managed to tie several separate plots into one big story that at times felt slightly confusing but came together in a way that made sense.
The film has beautiful filmography and a lot of good humor. I consider this one of Brad Pitt's better roles, on par with Fight Club and 12 Monkeys.
Cool transitions, great music, clever lines and oh so quick!! Don't blink or you'll miss something and keep your ears wide open. Liked it even better this time.
Britain's absolutely hilarious answer to Pulp Fiction.
A group of loosely connected lunatics, scumbags, and arseholes are pulled into chaos and danger by the obscure travel path of a particularly large diamond. Squeak squeak!
Guy Ritchie's sophomore feature, Snatch, was a whiz-bang number that took glee in its own enormous energy and its own Tarantino-esque dialogue.
It's hard for me to look at this and dislike anything about it. Between the plot, the dialogue, the cast performances, and the slapstick, it's a winner. It paces itself, and it's probably not for everyone, particularly with its jerk fight sequences, but I adored it.
Style points for this one. Entertaining too.
