Lacks the originality of Lock Stock

AdvantagesAmusing, goo plot

DisadvantagesNot original anymore

"This is the follow up by Guy Ritchie, to Lock, Stock and 2 smoking barrels. The film is made in much the same vein, with the theme being East End Gangsters and the cock ups made by the amateur criminals. The plot is complex but not as cleve as Lock Stock and Vinny Jones plays the same type of gangster. This time the fun centres around illegal fighting, and a stolen diamond, and the way the two events become interlinked. This is a good film, but ..." Read review

A must for any Guy or Woman

Advantages

"So this is Guy's big shot at making a film with a hollywood budget and a hollywood actor so does it succeed in being the follow up to lock Stock....Yes it does, although some people may be a little tired of watching british ganster films believe me this is the best of the lot. It has fantastic camera movement, a super cast and a great soundtrack. But more than all of this it is the brilliant script that makes this film so good. So whats it all about ..." Read review

Forget Lock Stock.....

AdvantagesFabulously written and characterised

DisadvantagesLimit of 18 years old

"This is a classic film, that I would recomend to everyone. The general billing is that is a sequal to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, yet it is an exelent film in it's own right. I haven't seen the earlier film and I couldn't see how that experience could have made it any more enjoyable. The movie is written excelently, and shot in an even better way. The use of two, almost completely issolated from each other, sets of 'good guy' characters ..." Read review

Snatch

AdvantagesFunny

DisadvantagesViolent

"Snatch is a gangster film that is very similar to the box office hit "Lock Stock and two smoking barrels" as it is also directed by Guy Ritchie. It stars Brad Pitt who plays and Irish Gypsy Street Boxer who loves his mum. The fild is about a large diamond that keeps on being stolen and you follow the funny and violent path it takes. The film is full of very violent scenes althrough the film and swaing is strong and constant but there are no sex scenes ..." Read review

dont bother if uve seen lock stock

AdvantagesBrad Pitt

DisadvantagesDone before

"If u have seen Lock stock you will watch the begining and think oh my god the same as lock stock but there are slight differences. It is a funny film but i think london gangster films have been overused in the past few years. Brad Pitt plays a very good irish gypsy and good old vinnie is just natural. There is nothing special about the film , but it was definately a Guy Ritchie film, the way all the characters link in and they all seem so close in ..." Read review

Excellent film!

AdvantagesVery funny

DisadvantagesNone

"I really enjoyed this film as it was fast paced, exciting and original. It is well directed and is in the same mould as "Lock, stock and two smoking barrels." The cast is also good with Brad Pitt doing well as a gypsy boxer, and the storyline is entertaining. The film is about stealing stones and breaking bones, as the poster says. A diamond has been stolen, and there are a number of characters who are trying to get it. This makes the storyline ..." Read review

What a film

AdvantagesBrilliant, funny all star cast

Disadvantagesnone

"SNATCH had me howling with laughter, it is a very entertaining film and one which i could watch time and time again. Richie has definitely come up with another storming hit with this one. I thought it was very similar to Lock Stock and two smoking barrels but i also thought it was actually better as well. Brad Pitt was excellent as Mickey the irish gypsy or Pikey as they're constantly referred to in the film, Vinnie Jones was his usual inimitable ..." Read review

Ritchie's second barrel?

AdvantagesMike Reid, Goldie great combination

DisadvantagesJust a second attempt?

"I really enjoyed Lock, Stock... I bought the DVD, soundtrack and while I thought the spinoff show could have been better, I loved that too. Imagine my shock when Guy Ritchie and Ska came up with the goods again. While some might argue that the film was over-cast with too many regulars and talent to keep it from being over-hyped, the charachters all work well together with some amazing individual performances. Mike Reid shines as the diamond ..." Read review

A great British Gangster Movie

AdvantagesGood story and characters

DisadvantagesBrad Pitt's accent!!!

"Snatch may be seen by some as a follow up to Lock Stock (That's the movie not the TV series) but it is much more than that. It has all the good points from that movie but is much slicker and the story line has a few extra twists and turns along the way. The cast is of very high quality with any major let downs. The story is strong but the movie is seriously tongue in cheek and must be viewed as such to gain maximum enjoyment. There really ..." Read review

outstanding

Advantagesbrad pitt

Disadvantagesnone

"A thief,a crook,a lot of thugs and a boxer. This is truly a fantastic film from the maker of Lock Stock...Guy Ritchie,and is much better than it`s predecessor. Whereas that had a juvenile cast and was slightly silly,this has more of a serious and sinister side to it. It starts with diamond thief Frankie Four Fingers on his way to New York to deliver an 84 carat jewel to his boss Avi. On the way he stops off in London and,being a compulsive ..." Read review

SImply GREAT!

AdvantagesFantastic!

Disadvantages

"The film carries on in the same style as Guy Richies previous, Lock Stock, with the same twists in the story line and the great humour alongside the gripping action. I Loved this film, I thought it was better than Lock Stock, and thought Brad Pitt as an Irish Gypsie was fantastic! Definately a Film for the lads, so not really one to take the missus along with you to, she'll only moan for the rest of the week that you didn't go and see some soppy ..." Read review

Funny film

Advantagesgreat aacting, story andd comedy

Disadvantagesnothing

""Snatch" is fantastic; and not least because it demonstrates emphatically that the British movie industry is capable of rivaling even the best of what Hollywood can offer. "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" was one of the funniest movies released in recent years, and "Snatch" takes everything that "Lock, Stock..." did so well and does it even better. Back are the cleverly intertwined plotlines, the hilarious one-liners, and the simultaneously ..." Read review

Is this Lock, Stock in disguise?

AdvantagesVery funny

DisadvantagesWe've seen this a million times before

"...with no real idea what Snatch was supposed to be about. The fact that Guy Ritchie had made the thing and that Vinne Jones was starring should have been a big clue - yes it was a gangster type movie based around Diamond smuggling! Snatch pretty much follows the Lock Stock formula, different sets of characters are introduced and eventually they all interact, usually in a pretty violent way. The characters are all superb, with brillliant performances ..." Read review

"We can all learn so much from the wholesale image of London in the media. Mainly TO STAY THE HELL AWAY! If Eastenders and Guy Ritchie are to be belived, we could be stabbed, beaten up by gypsies, go mad like that one guy with the tin foil on his head, be forced to listen old women shouting "WHERE IS MY WILLY", meet Brad Pitt (down, ladies!), get shot by hemp dealers and even get away with murder. Is London meant to be cool, awful, or a mix of the ..." Read review
