My main reason for seeing this movie was primarily BRAD PITT! He gets topless in the movie and looks pretty hot (apart form the tattoos). It took a moment for the characters and their roles to register in my mind while I figured out what they were after etc. Maybe I'm slow, but the plot was quite...

“Snatch this”

published 02/05/2001

ProGood plot and nice set of extras.

ConsCould have had some music videos

If you want a good British gangster movie, then there is no better place to turn these days than to Guy Ritchie. The guy who became next in line to marry Madonna has created a sequel to Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels in all but name, and it doesn't suffer for it either. With a bigger budget...

ConsVinnie Jones is on screen

Guy Ritchie’s first film, Lock Stock…, was a crime caper based on several gangs all vowing for the same merchandise. Said merchandise changed hands frequently and the film ended with a big showdown involving all the main characters in the movie. Seen as though everyone loved this...

published 06/09/2000

Proexcellent and enjoyable

Consmaybe a little to similar to Lock, Stock

Snatch is Guy Ritchie's follow-up to the his classic 'Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels' In the same vein as his first film, this is a fast-paced, black humoured, violent gangster film. There are many similarities in the style and story, even down to some of the actors, like Vinny Jones and Jason...

“Ritchie still Smoking”

published 12/09/2000

ProSuperb acting and story

ConsNot quite as good as Lock Stock

Guy Ritchie returns to the British gangster scene after his phenomenally successful Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and again delivers a slick, stylish film, with a cracking story and good acting. An 84-carat diamond is stolen in Antwerp. A betting shop heist goes wrong. A pair of underground...

If you thought Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels was a good film then you'll love Snatch. It keeps with the same kind of settings as Lock Stock with it's back alley merky London feel, but this time throws alot more characters into the equation, at first there's alot of names and nicknames to take...

“Its a steal”

published 03/01/2001

ProGreat story, great performances, great soundtrack

ConsMaybe not the most original of ideas

The first thing I knew of Guy Ritchie, as with most people was that he directed Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels..which is pretty much all he has done barring Inspector Morse and marrying Madonna...except for his follow-up to Lock, Stock, which was a movie that went by the name of Snatch. Many...

“no 'snatch' jokes here”

published 08/04/2001

Progood extras, amusing film, some good easter eggs

Consall extras are once only views

The film Snatch is a reasonably entertaining film that treads all the same ground as Lock Stock but with a bigger budget. There's some good laughs and a few good action scenes. Not fantastic but certainly better than the rest of the british ganster dross that we've seen in recent months. The...

ProFunny, clever and stylish

ConsNot quite as good as Lock Stock

Snatch is the second film by Guy Ritchie. Guy, is of course, Madonna's better half and the man who directed Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels. A rather brilliant film that spawned a thousand imitations and turned a rock hard footballer into a Hollywood movie star. Like Lock, Stock - Snatch is set...

Consnothing

Possibly one of the greatest plot lines ever constructed, Lock, Stock and 3 Smoking Barrels was revolutionary for British film-making. Writer/Director Guy Ritchie is a house hold name in the movie industry, as are the actors that appeared in the movie. How can you possible follow a film like that...

Product Information : Snatch (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

A wild and tangled crime adventure involving gangsters, Irish gypsies, and a dog that can't stop swallowing things, SNATCH is both hilarious and action-packed. Jewel thief Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) is in London en route to New York, where he will deliver an 86-karat diamond to his boss, Avi (Dennis Farina). A compulsive gambler, Franky is tempted into an illegal boxing scam, becoming the unwitting suspect in a robbery committed by bumbling pawnshop owners Vinny (Robbie Gee), Sol (Lennie James), and their oaf-of-a-driver, Tyrone (Ade). Meanwhile, novice boxing promoter Turkish (Jason Statham), and his dim-witted partner, Tommy (Stephen Graham), move into the "big time" with twisted crime boss, Brick Top (Alan Ford), and Mickey, a mumbling, unhinged Irish gypsy boxer (Brad Pitt) and his band of travelling Pykies (including Paul O'Boyle as Paddy). Thrown into the proceedings are killers Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) and Boris the Blade (Rade Sherbedgia). A stylized work with a gritty urban soundtrack and a cast of intricately developed characters, SNATCH delivers superb and witty dialogue while depicting one of the more zany, complex diamond heists ever portrayed in film.

Review: "...Intelligible...stylish...humorous....Downright Tarantino-esque in the best sense..." (Box Office, p.62, 01/01/2001)<br><br>"...Ritchie is a talented director....His slick camerawork and editing suggest a born storyteller..." (Film Comment, p.73-4, 01/01/2001)<br><br>"...Mr. Ritchie seizes the bespoke machismo of British gangster movies and gives it an action picture's ferocity....[Mr. Pitt's] brio is a reminder of how adept he is at low comedy..."
