Review

Our Score
You'd have thought that Guy Ritchie would've shied away from replicating Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels after the glut of British gangster movies that followed its success. Sadly not. Although Snatch has its merits - among them originality and the talents of Brad Pitt, Benicio Del Toro, and Jasons Statham and Flemyng - the diamond heist and East End Mob plot are just more of the same. Gangs, cheeky chappies, bare-knuckle boxing and cameos from Vinnie Jones and Mike Reid merge into a "seen it all before" mix. Ritchie can direct, but perhaps he should get someone else to write the material.

Summary

An unlicensed boxing promoter and his dim-witted sidekick convince an Irish gypsy to step in for their injured fighter, but find themselves drawn into a match-fixing racket. Meanwhile, the loot from a diamond heist goes missing, leading to a bloody conflict between Russian gangsters and a Jewish mob. Guy Ritchie's comedy drama, with Jason Statham, Brad Pitt, Benicio Del Toro and Stephen Graham.
