| Director: Guy Ritchie |
A long way from the standard fare of summer open-air cinemas, Snatch has become a modern crime classic.
Unscrupulous boxing promoters, violent bookmakers, incompetent amateur robbers, and supposedly Jewish jewelers... What unites them? A scramble across London’s underworld in pursuit of a priceless stolen diamond.
The follow-up to Guy Ritchie’s unexpected hit Lock, Stock, And Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch ups the ante with stand-out performances from Brad Pitt and Benicio del Toro. But despite the big-name actors, Ritchie remains true to his roots, and his style remains as gritty and unpolished as ever. In fact, there is something refreshing about seeing great Hollywood stars exercising their skills away from their comfort zone. And, all the while they deliver enough laughs to keep any audience coming back for more.
