Comedy Thriller - Fans of Guy Ritchie's first film, the caper comedy Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, should have no problem enjoying this very similar sophomore effort. Those easily offended by violence and language should steer clear, however.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
Fans of Guy Ritchie's 1998 cult fave Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels will be happy to learn that shacking up with Madonna and siring her a son have had no discernible effect on the writer-director--at least not one noticeable in his second film, Snatch. In fact, nothing appears to have affected or changed Ritchie at all between this latest film and his last, for Snatch is a full-throttle comedic crime caper that more than resembles Lock, Stock... yet remains a rollicking good time in its own right.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

First let me say that there were females of all ages that didn't like this movie all that much, even though Brad Pitt was in it. In this movie he is a very rough and dirty character, which understandably didn't interest some ladies. There were a lot of moviegoers who enjoyed this movie very much, especially the younger men. I would say your chances of enjoying Snatch are high, as long as you read all the content and moviegoer comments before, deciding if this extremely violent story is the type you might like.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
CAUTION: THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE!!! It has an EXTREME amount of STRONG profanity. It is a VERY VIOLENT and GRAPHIC movie. That said, it is a fairly entertaining film, especially when Brad Pitt is on the screen, which unfortunately isn't very often. So don't go expecting to see a Brad Pitt movie. His screen time is pretty minimal.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Diamond thief and courier Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Toro) arrives in London en route to New York to deliver a huge diamond to boss Avi (Dennis Farina). In his mission to offload smaller stones to Avi's cousin, Doug ‘The Head' (Mike Reid) and other local jewelers, he is tempted into placing a bet on an illegal boxing bout by Boris ‘The Blade' (Rade Sherbedgia). Little does he know that Boris has set him up - and local pawnshop owners Vinny (Robbie Gee) and Sol (Lennie James), along with their rather plump getaway driver, Tyrone (Ade) are to rob him at the bookies.

Meanwhile, novice unlicensed boxing promoters Turkish (Jason Statham) and his business partner Tommy (Stephen Graham) move into the ‘big time' through a fight with local kingpin villain, boxing promoter and pig farm owner, Brick Top (Alan Ford). But when the novice's fighter is knocked out by Mickey O'Neil (Brad Pitt), a wildcard Irish gypsy boxer, the boys convince him to fight in their boxer's place in Brick Top's rigged match.

Unfortunately, Mickey proves to be highly unreliable and the duo find themselves in trouble as the fearless fighter refuses to "go down in the fourth" as planned. Luckily, the gypsy's prowess and technique impress Brick Top - saving all three from the fate of his pig farm. The catch is Mickey has to fight again - and has to get it right this time - since Brick Top more than happy to use brutality and bloodshed to make his point.

In New York, news that Franky has been waylaid by the bookies sends Avi into a tailspin and he hops on a plane to London. He hires local legend, ‘Bullet Tooth' Tony (Vinnie Jones) to find Franky and the diamond. The sorry fate of the diamond courier is soon discovered and the hunt for the missing stone launches everyone into a madcap spiral which threatens to spin out of control….
