Summary: The first 30 minutes or so were very hard to follow, there are a lot of characters, but once everyone is introduced and the story unfolds, the film is nothing but pure entertainment. Great cast, good characters, solid writing, and lots of action...Snatch. is a must see! I was also really impressed by Brad Pitt's performance in this.
Excerpt: This is my favorite from the canon of Michael Ritchie. I had the Superbit DVD version, and it looked & sounded pretty good. The PQ is close to BD quality, but this BD's picture quality is closer to the theatrical experience.The audio is also a step up.
Summary: One of 10 best comedies, in my opinion, i think. Movie is fast, colorful with all these great images and fun characters. Normally crime is dark theme, but in this kind of films crime is turned in something funny. And that is one brilliant idea. Ofcourse this is not nice humor, it is brutal, but its still humor. Among those crime comedies Snatch is one of the best. It has its negative sides but it will be easy to ignore them.
Summary: Guy Ritchie spins a tale of colorful characters, dark humor, and some exciting and thrilling crime action. The film is an adrenaline rush from start to finish that doesn't ever go very deep emotionally, but is pure entertainment nevertheless.
Excerpt: Cockney boxing promoter Jason Statham finds himself indebted to a ruthless gangster and has to provide bare knuckle boxer Brad Pitt in recompense. Ritchie's difficult second movie lives up to the potential of Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels but it's hardly a massive departure.
Excerpt: After veiwing more of the director's films, this critic has changed the perception of how great this movie is. The story all comes together based on a single 86 karat diamond. Frankie Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) was tasked to deliver the stolen diamond to Doug “The Head (Mike Reid) in London. Doug contacts Avi (Dennis Farina) to fly to London to check on the diamond.
Summary: At best an intelligent and hyperbolic music-video rendition of 'A Fish Called Wanda', at worst a crime caper of markedly stylized overkill. Nevertheless, Alan Ford's performance is nothing short of a tour de force.
