Snatch is a criminally underrated film, partially because superficially it's pretty similar to Lock Stock, Guy Richie's debut. Critics everywhere leaped on it for lack of originality, but in my eyes it's more similar to Tarantino's classic Pulp Fiction than Lock Stock. Everything is here- gangsters, guns, cross-wiring plots and characters, loads of famous faces and a platinum script with top-draw dialogue. There are even more literal links between the two films, such as rigged boxing matches, corpse disposal and something precious causing hassle (in this case an 84 carat stone, in Pulp Fiction a briefcase full of gold).
It's impossible to describe the plot to Snatch in one sentance, but it basically involves a diamond that everyone wants, and a boxing match nobody wants. There's also a fantastic twist at the end, that thankfully nobody has given away. There are some great characters in the film- Turkish and Tommy, the lead characters enjoy loads of dry banter. Brick Top, the lead gangster, is brilliantly malicious "No thanks Turkish... I'm sweet enough". It also boasts one of the best ideas in cinema history- superstar pin-up actor Brad Pitt as an incoherant gypsie with a leather hat. Pitt pretty much steals every scene he's in, making even the crackling Cockney dialogue seem dull in comparison.
Sure Snatch isn't all that original, but it's a damn fine movie. There are dozens of funny and catchy one-liners, loads of mouth-watering dialogue, the plot is excellently managed by Richie, and there are some smart directorial tricks thrown in. And the soundtrack is brilliant, fitting the film perfectly. One of the finest films, British otherwise, of recent years, and ranks up there as an unmissable film.

There are inevitable echoes of Guy Ritchie's other
work,but this movie(at least in my opinion) is not
"Son of Lock Stock" by a long way.Brad Pitt is in
great form here,and backed by a strong supporting
cast of British talent and the always-watchable
Bernicio Del Toro.Even a cameo role for Mike Read
(imagine Rabbi Frank Butcher to get the flavour!)
fits in well with this enjoyable comedy drama.The
best way to appreciate this film is to just watch
it without analyzing it too closely - some of the
comic moments are simply sublime!All in all,a good
effort all round.

Guy Ritchie strikes again with another cockney crime caper with a hilariously twisted plot, very much in the same vein as the fantastic Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. The main difference here is that everything is bigger, better and faster; the budget, the stars, the locations, the editing, the endlessly quotable dialogue and the music. The ball starts rolling when Franky Four Fingers (Benico Del Toro) steals a huge priceless diamond from Antwerp and brings it to London on route to New York. Cue murder, betrayl, mayhem, strong language, thievery and a dog that'll eat just about anything. Endlessly watchable and entertaining. The best British film in years. Where else are you going to see Brad Pitt and Frank Butcher in the same feature?
The DVD is a corker too. Boasting many fantastic features including a commentary, deleted scenes, a documentary, interviews, trailers, TV spots, storyboard comparrisons, photo library and some absolutely hilarious hidden features.

British director Guy Ritchie's follow-up to the hugely entertaining low-budget Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is simply excellent. Lock, Stock was largely ignored by the British Film Institute (which is peculiar because it's the first decent British film we've seen in years), so it's probably a good thing that this sequel is more americanized with the involvement of Columbia Pictures.
As well as the best actors from Lock Stock, Jason Statham and Vinnie Jones, this sequel includes Brad Pitt and Dennis Farina in excellent performances. It is not directly related to Lock, Stock, as both Statham and Jones play different characters in this film, but the influences are still extremely apparent. Guy Ritchie has made it just different enough to make it a great and entertaining film by it's own rights.
The DVD features a decent commentary with director Guy Ritchie and producer Matthew Vaughn, as well as a 'Making Of' with interviews, some pretty interesting deleted scenes, behind the scenes footage, TV spots, trailers, and some interesting hidden extras. Pretty much all you could ask for other than commentary from the cast themselves. For this price, it's an excellent DVD...

Snatch is a perfectly designed and constructed film from the one and only, Guy Ritchie. Even though many of the characters from "Lock Stock.." were used, (which to me didn't seem such a good idea) a new range of stars such as David Farina and Brad Pitt, not forgetting a more substantial role for Alan Ford, have complemented the film thanks to their acting abilities. I do not feel, however, that they were used just, what Guy Ritchie said, "to put bums on seats". As DVD have numerous special features which let you take a closer look into the minds of the crew and the actors, the movie doesn't just feel like a movie, but an experience and I have to say that this is the first film that I have watched all of the "Makings of.." and "interviews". Many observant people would have noticed that "Snatch" has been rated an 18 and this is for 2 reasons: the violence and the harsh swearing. But the prblem is that there is too much repetition of the same word which, after a while turns into just that, a word, not a curse. Overall, "Snatch" is one of the best movies that have come from the British film industry. Well done Guy Ritchie!!!!
