Snatch (2000)

Photobucket

I just finished re-watching one of my all time favorite movies, Snatch. I couldn't help but make a post on it, more people need to see this movie.
Unscrupulous boxing promoters, violent bookmakers, a Russian gangster, incompetent amateur robbers, and supposedly Jewish jewelers fight to track down a priceless stolen diamond.
Written: Guy Ritchie
Directed: Guy Ritchie
Starring: Jason Statham, Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro
Genre: Crime, Thriller
Release Date: August 23, 2000

Plot Summary: When a dizzying robbery takes place in the Orthodox Jewish diamond district, a flawless 86-carat gem, the size of an infant's fist, is lifted in the snatch. Taking it to London, the diamond's thief and courier, Franky Four Fingers arrives in the city as a stopover en route to New York to deliver the huge diamond to his bigwig crime boss, Avi. But because Franky can't resist temptation and London is a town with its share of illegal trade, a small crowd of miscreants and malefactors eventually ends up chasing each other and the whereabouts of the diamond. These include: Doug the Head, a jeweler who pretends he's Jewish because it's good for business; Boris the Blade, a Russian gangster with a deserved reputation for being impossible to kill; Bullet Tooth Tony, a legendary hard guy and Brick Top, perhaps the scariest of the lot.

  1. guy ritchie is a genius, he has yet to let me down with a movie (marrying madonna was pretty gross on his part), and bullet tooth tony is one of my favorite movie characters ever.

  2. I love all of Guy Ritchi's movies. Snatch and Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels are probably my two favorite though.
