    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # 16162 )

    Plot
      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

      Review

        Riffing off a multitude of caper films that had come before it, Guy Ritchie's second film, Snatch, manages to stay afloat and tread new territory of its own. As in Ritchie's first outing as a director, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), Snatch's strong points are its excellent ensemble cast; the cool, sharp, and very funny working-class London vernacular of its script; and the film's hyperkinetic, in-your-face style. What could easily have been its downfall -- MTV- and advertising-styled video techniques -- becomes in many ways the film's strongest element. Though occasionally a bit too slick for its own good, the film's imagery does help enhance and raise itself above its otherwise moribund genre. The performances are all great, especially Brad Pitt's role as an unintelligible Irish traveler. He almost single handedly steals the show. The film also contains arguably one of the best fight scenes since Scorsese's classic Raging Bull (1980). ~ Derek Hill, Rovi
