body guards and dishonest diamond dealers from both sides of the Atlantic. Ritchie's kinetic first film was a smash in his homeland, but only a cult success in the U.S. With "Snatch" he follows much the same formula but brings in recognizable stars, most notably Brad Pitt as Mickey, an almost incomprehensible Irish bare knuckle fighter who loves his mum. The pace is fast and furious, featuring editting montages comprised of stills and near-stills that are hilariously economical. Ritchie even gets a "Run Lola Run" moment when he shows a fateful dual car crash from opposite perspectives back to back. Ritchie's assembled a terrific ensemble here, from unknowns like Ford, who's magnificently malicious and wickedly witty, to big stars like Pitt, who shines here in a humorous offshoot of his "Fight Club" persona. Ritchie's script may follow a formula, but his lines are deliciously inventive. Be warned, though for all its humor, the film features extreme violence and some gore, but simply put, "Snatch" is a blast.
With "Snatch," the director doesn't remake his first work, but he does delve more deeply into the criminal underbelly of London, mining a rich collection of characters in the process. From the very beginning, "Snatch" tosses you into the action with the theft of the fabulous diamond, the desire of New York gangster Avi. En route from Antwerp, diamond thief and courier Frankie Four Fingers stops in London to make a separate deal with Avi's partner and cousin, Doug. Frankie's addiction to gambling tempts him into making a bet on an illegal boxing match for Boris "The Blade" a ruthless Russian mobster. The bet turns out to be a setup for a robbery by a trio of bumbling incompetents that goes miserably awry. Meanwhile, a couple of young toughs, Turkish and Tommy, are trying to break in to the boxing game with the help of local villain Brick Top, who also owns a pig farm. When their first fighter is put out of action, with one punch, by a wild Irish gypsy named Mickey O'Neil, they figure to put the loose canon in as the contender in a fixed fight. Mickey proves less than reliable and goes against Turkish and Tommy's deal. Brick Top, impressed by Mickey's performance, decides to gives them another chance after calmly explaining that it takes 16 pigs about eight minutes to completely devour a corpse. When Avi doesn't get his precious rock, he jumps on a plane for London and hires a local legend, "Bullet Tooth" Tony (Vinnie Jones), to find Frankie and the diamond. Things spiral out of control as all these forces head on a collision course of double-cross and double-deals and a dog that ate a squeaky toy.
Understand so Far .................
Guy Ritchie has a wonderful knack for pulling together his unique collection of cast and crew and feeding them funny and gritty dialog that spews out of the characters' mouths like machine gun fire. The assemblage of actors and non-actors in rough-and-tumble settings gives "Snatch" an earthy feel in its depiction of London's criminal underworld. The cast of characters is too large to credit here. The outstanding performance is given by none other than Brad Pitt, the name actor the movie's popularity may hang upon, at least initially. Pitt, as Mickey O'Neil, is hard drinking, hard fighting, highly unreliable and nearly incomprehensible with a unique Irish brogue and dialect of the pikers, the Irish travelers of Europe. This gypsy brigand would steal the fillings from your teeth, especially if it would benefit his beloved mum. When Brick Top threaten the safety of Mickey's family, he makes an enemy that cannot be stopped. Pitt puts a credible spin on his character and does some incredible physical stuff, too, as a bare-knuckle boxer. "Snatch" is possibly the most violent screwball comedy you'll ever see. Miscues and misunderstandings are the order of the day here, in a plot so incredibly convoluted it can only have been crafted that way intentionally. But that appears to be Ritchie's aim, this is one instance where the story exists basically as a framework for the movie's humour, rather than having the comedy service the central plotline. Those who can follow all the twists and turns may, in a way, get more out of "Snatch" than those unable to keep up, but this is not a prerequisite to enjoying the film. Most individual scenes work all by themselves -- as long as viewers have a general sense of what's happening, that's all they should need. Nonetheless, "Snatch" remains an entertaining movie for those who don't mind a few bullets and the occasional spattered blood mixed in with their chortles and guffaws. It might not be quite as clever as it thinks it is, but that still ranks it head and shoulders above a lot of other films.
The same load of great quotes as Lock Stock and you'll always recall the Russian reference and the one about pigs!
The inter linking story lines and the mix of actors are first class. I won't attempt to write up the story line, but it is something which should be on everyone's must watch list.
Brad Pitt plays an interesting part, very well I thought.
Vinnie Jones, looks really menacing.
It's a violent comedy, but the blood and guts are reserved.
What I mean is a lot of the violence is left to the imagination.
And the film is all the better for that.
I enjoyed it, first time I've seen it.
I think I will watch it again one day.
