Guy Ritchie is known for his unique story telling through his original screenwriting and the way he shoots his films that keeps the fans wanting more. And not just more in reference to the next movie, but even scene by scene people want to see what could possibly come next. He intersects different storylines that as a viewer you think couldn’t work in any one of his movies, but in the end it all manages to collide… HARD!
When “Snatch” first hit the big screen in 2000, it was an immediate crowd-pleaser in the UK . When it finally crossed the pond, the accolades the film received came along with it, as fans anticipated another hit after Ritchie’s previous low-budget success “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.” When it was all said and done, Ritchie did not disappoint with his second major film.
In the beginning of the movie, there’s a jewel heist where Franky Four Fingers (Benicio Del Torro) leads a small group of about four men dressed like rabbis into a jewelry store and lifts this really big diamond, 86 carats to be exact. Once the diamond is stolen and Franky is killed, this jewel really makes its way around the movie. It starts in Franky’s hands; it then goes to Boris “the blade.” After Boris the diamond makes its way to the two guys from the pawn shop, Sol and Vince, oh, and their big getaway driver, Tyrone.
The movie is really divided into two main storylines, the underground boxing and the 86 carat diamond that everyone wants. There are also many sub-plots that are happening throughout the film as well. This is where you get to see Ritchie at his best, trying to tie all of these smaller stories together to make sense of the big picture.
In order for a movie to become a success, let alone a classic, almost every piece of the film making process has to be done the right way, from the words on the pages of the script, to the shooting of the picture and then finally finishing with the editing process. Ritchie rocked all three of the major areas of this films development. Although this film still may be a bit too young to label a classic, it has been without a doubt a great success.
It’s not every day you watch a movie that is this unique in style. This is an extremely entertaining movie with action, comedy and lots of twists and turns, so I’d pay attention. Since this is my first review, I leave you with a fitting farewell from the mouth of Brick Top “In the quiet words of the Virgin Mary... come again.”
Film Rating: 4 ½ out of 5 stars!
