Duh it's not for kids. Look at the cover. BTW, no need to *** the middle of the title. It's not a porn reference. It's title, as in, "to STEAL or take away... gangster movie about stolen diamonds." Eeesh.

Ensemble gangster is high-rolling fun

There's nothing as an aspiring writer that I respect more than hyperlink cinema, the interconnecting stories that eventually wrap together type of movie-making that seems so difficult to me. And these are a lot of shady crooks to keep track of! You have Jason Statham's mellow, wisecracking boxing promoter, Brad Pitt's garbled, Irish prizefighter, Alan Ford (in the film's best role) as ultraviolent gangster Brick Top, and two absolutely bumbling crooks Sol and Vinny (2 gentleman whose names escape me). But of course director Guy Ritchie ties them all together, and apparently this film bears a strong semblance to his debut "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," which I will definitely watch. But seeing this one first, I thoroughly enjoyed the gleefully profane dialogue, and though there is violence, it's not excessively bloody except for the boxing scenes, most deaths occur offscreen. I can't wait to see more of Ritchie's work.

badass and hilarious ensemble action comedy

I've seen this several times and I never get tired of it lol, Guy Ritchie is one of my favorite directors and he always makes a great and hilarious flick, and between this and lock, stock, and two smoking barrels, I think snatch is the better film because it's more fun, more silly, has more action, and is faster paced

Amazing Artistry WITHOUT the Blood and Gore, as Many Presume

"Snatch" is a film directed and written by Guy Ritchie, famous for other such works as "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels," (1998) as well as "RocknRolla" (2008). It was released in the USA in January of 2001. "Snatch" is a classic tale of man vs. man vs. more men vs. Russian (vs. pigs). The main protagonist (though the story takes many branches along the way) is a man by the name of Turkish. His life has always been on the wrong side of gambles, and now he is presented with what seems a simple task: have a fighter go down in the fourth round during an illegal, underground boxing match. However, when his fighter is knocked-out cold while pursuing a new caravan for the "headquarters" (if you will), Turkish's plans become significantly more challenging. In another part of London, away from the Pikey Gypsy camp, a group of jewelers/thugs discover an 86 carat diamond, which more than a couple people seek, some of who are: Boris "The Blade" (a.k.a Boris "The Bullet Dodger"), Avi, Bullet Tooth Tony, and Franky Four Fingers (just to name a few). "Snatch" is truly a delightful film, full of wonderful artistry, character interplay, and plot development. The cinematography is beautiful, under the expertise direction of Mr. Ritchie. While the language is a bit coarse, it hardly detracts from the overall effect the movie has on an audience. Ritchie also presents violence in an interesting manner: nearly all of it is unseen, performed off-screen. Only a handful scenes contain actual blood in them; everything else is insinuated as violence, but never actually shown. A promising film, truly great for all ages that can handle the coarse language. A must see!

Guy Ritchie's masterpiece is just as great as Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.

Due mostly in part to its groundbreaking direction, cinematography, screenwriting, and extraordinary performances (particularly by Pitt, Jones, Farina, and Statham), Snatch was a great way to open the 2000s.

Fun for adults

This movie would have been so much greater if they could restrain the language and violence. The story was funny, fast paced and really enjoyable. Too bad they always have to ruin it with a bit of something, in this case the "f" word.
