Synopsis


Snatch
Guy Ritchie's sophomore follow-up to his 1998 sleeper hit Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch revisits the previous film's territory of London's crime-ridden underbelly, and does so with the same brand of humor and stylish direction that made Ritchie's first effort a surprise success. With a labyrinthine plot that is ostensibly oriented around a missing diamond, Snatch introduces viewers to three groups of characters intent on retrieving the elusive stone, which has been stolen from an Antwerp jeweler. In the first group are friends and business partners Turkish (Jason Statham, who also supplies the film's voice-over narration) and Tommy (Stephen Graham), who join up with Mickey (Brad Pitt), an Irish gypsy and boxer. Turkish and Tommy make arrangements with Mickey to take a fall in a match engineered by lunatic gang leader Brick Top (Alan Ford). In another corner resides equally loony Russian gangster Boris the Blade (Rade Sherbedgia), who has asked Jewish gangster Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) to place a bet on the match for him. Boris is also scheming to have Sol (Lennie James), the owner of a pawn shop, rob the place with a couple of dim associates. Meanwhile, Avi (Dennis Farina), freshly arrived in London from New York, hires Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) to find Franky when he goes missing; it seems that it was none other than Franky who was supposed to be transporting the purloined diamond to New York. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

    This is definitely one of Brad Pitt/Jason Stratham's best movies EVER! There is a great plot that, though sometimes gets itself sidetracked, always keeps itself prevelant through the fog. + To be fair, there are actually numerous different plots that develop throughout the movie, but the gist of it is this... + Avi, (Dennis Farina) is trying to get his hands on a massive diamond, and everyone else seems to have the same idea. He decides to send Frankie Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) to retrieve it; this is how the movie starts. + Turkish (Jason Stratham) is managing a boxer named Gorgeous George, who consequently gets KTFO by an Irish gypsy boxer named Mickey (Brad Pitt). + Now, Gorgeous George was supposed to take to the ring and fight a boxer under the management of Brick Top (Alan Ford), a man that no-one seems to want to mess with. Since Mickey sent Gorgeous to the ER, and the fight had to go on, Turkish and his partner Tommy (Stephen Graham) negotiate a caravan deal with Mickey to step in and fight. The only stipulation, he has to throw the fight... + The movie keeps building on itself and comes to an explosive ending that is sure to make you glad that you just sat through the whole thing. It has comedy, wit, and an all-star cast, definitely an amazing movie. Highly recommended.

    The title says it all, its snatch people!!! The movies great, always has been. Had an older copy that someone scratched up so I purchased this new steelbook edition(a best buy exclusive btw). Great product, nice special features, but cmon we've all seen this movie and know its fantastic already right? The real winner here is the amazing artwork on the steelbook itself, really adds a certain flare to the case, not boring placeholders like so many others. Buy this if you have never seen it, buy it even if you have seen it. Great dialogue, absolutely hilarious, will not disappoint. Unless you have trouble understanding British people, my parents are quite old and cannot even understand Ricky Gervais, and to me he barely even has an accent 90% of the time lol. But with that one caveat, buy the movie, its easily top 25 all time

    Like most I'm sure I purchased this movie back in 2000 when it released. I really doubt I need to review the movie itself, I mean come on! Pitt, Del Toro, Statham, Farina, Jones, Beckwith, Ford, Flemyng, Bremner, and a slew of others. All of this topped off by a movie written and directed by Guy Ritchie! Good luck not liking this movie! As for the steelbook case, its probably the coolest one I own; nice solid yellow with awesome artwork adorning the front and back. It only comes with a blu ray disc; no DVD (big loss, unless you like moving backwards through advancements in technology) or digital copy ($2 can remedy that pretty quick). Price is right for a blue ray of a great movie with a great looking, durable case!

    Has all the features that were present in the original DVD release. Something odd with the audio track, though: a slightly different running monologue for Turkish (Jason Statham) is present in the first half of the movie, with Statham taking the same to pronounce his t's, which, if you've seen the original cut of the film, you'll know his accent tends to force out. As a result, it tends to pull out longtime viewers from the experience. One wonders why it was done at all, since the alterations to the monologue are present for only the first half (and maybe not even that much). It's almost as if they decided it wasn't worth the effort to finish.

    I totally love this movie. And, the best thing about it is, you can watch it quite a few times because there are so many little plots going on. It's just a very entertaining movie, if you like comedy / action flicks, and there is seldom a pause in the action or the humor, although, sometimes the humor is a bit dark. There is no lack of entertainment, action, laugh out-loud humor and violence. Admittedly, probably more a guy's flick - but highly recommended.

    If you've seen any gritty UK black comedy in the last decade its roots more than likely lie at the feet of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Director Guy Ritchie creates a crazy world of gypsies, dog fights, diamond heists, and bookies all after the same thing and all getting exactly what is coming to them for their troubles. If you like smart ensemble comedies, you'll love this film. Brad Pitt turns in a bravura performance as a Pikey traveler who likes dogs and always has a ruse up his sleeve. Action star Jason Statham also co-stars as a streetwise former pugilist out to scam any and everyone, and mostly, just stay out of trouble.

    So I was a huge fan of Guy Ritchie's Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels. This was his sophomore effort. Was so excited to see this in the theater but honestly couldn't understand half the dialogue due to super thick accents. Had always wanted to pick this up and try to watch again. Was on sale so finally did. Planning on watching with subtitles so I can finally hear what some of the actors are saying. Also recommend the underrated Man From UNCLE from Guy Ritchie.

    An Awesome movie

    This is a great movie about diamonds, boxers, and dags. You'll get it when you see it. The accents in the movie are very bad and hard to understand. You can actually turn on closed captioning for the movie. And there is actually closed captioning just for Brad Pitt. If you are looking for a funny and entertaining movie about multiple stories that are going to eventually collide this is a great movie. This movie is filled with an awesome amount of characters, and after watching it you will have your favorites. This really is a must see and all the popular actors you see in the cast are used very well. Definitely check this movie out.
