Turkish and his close friend/accomplice Tommy get pulled into the world of match fixing by the notorious Brick Top. Things get complicated when the boxer they had lined up gets the shit kicked out of him by Pitt, a ‘pikey’ ( slang for an Irish Gypsy)- who comes into the equation after Turkish, an unlicensed boxing promoter wants to buy a caravan off the Irish Gypsies. They then try to convince Pitt not only to fight for them, but to lose for them too. Whilst all this is going on, a huge diamond heist takes place, and a fistful of motley characters enter the story, including ‘Cousin Avi’, ‘Boris The Blade’, ‘Franky Four Fingers’ and ‘Bullet Tooth Tony’. Things go from bad to worse as it all becomes about the money, the guns, and the damned dog!

Film Review

Marvelous movie. One of Brad Pitt's most impressionable performances, competing with his jaw-dropping role on 12 Monkeys. His character makes the movie, his mannerisms, his accent, his way of handling situations, his insane personality; every bit of his amazingly executed role adds up to the magnificence of the whole. Another actor worth mentioning is Benicio del Toro. Apart from the fact that he is a puertorican just like myself (and we puertoricans take that seriously) , he plays an excellent role. This is evident because even though he is cut off half-way through the movie, the impact of the persona of the character he plays stays with us 'til the end. The acting performances of these brilliant actors make the movie. The plot is good, and very well set forth, but the characters displayed are simply wonderful. I mean, who doesn't like seeing Jason Statham play a bad-ass delinquent that drinks milk? From a carton! I know I sure do!

Here is a movie I never cease to enjoy, the colorful characters, wittiest dialog ever and winding plot are the best. I wish Guy Ritchie would make more films like this, I know others have attempted, but few come close. Although Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is fantastic as well. I was steered away from the film because of the title, but once you watch it, you'll understand why the name. Brad Pitt's performance is one of his best albeit a small role, and this breakout role for Jason Statham is the reason he is a major star today. There are other great characters like Bullet Tooth Tony by Vinnie Jones and other characters that will be hard to forget. I think if I could wear out a DVD, this is one that has been put through the paces. Anyone who has seen this is likely to have seen it a few times, and if you are 'movie guy' can likely quote at least 10-20 lines from the rich dialog.

An atrocious comedic drama which glamorizes criminal activity, violence, and almost mind-numbingly pervasive profanity…I had a hard time finishing it. Rest assured that your potential for gaining new insight or finding life-enriching meaning of any kind is slim to none; you definitely will not be uplifted. Even just measuring it in terms of simple entertainment value, its wit & humor don't come close to compensating for its violence. The kinds of flashy bloodshed and theatrical cruelty which are found in films like Snatch desensitize fragile minds and corrode morals in a way that, yes, does in fact facilitate real-world violence.Brief example: the film's analysis of the efficiencies of pig farms for human corpse disposal – some people inevitably walked away reflecting on the strengths & weaknesses of different corpse disposal methods…a topic in which they would not have otherwise invested mental energy. I just wish we could have more honest conversations …
