How far to the Russians? : Snatch

Time for a bit of British I think. Good cast, good plot, good director. Snatch.

Written and directed by Guy Ritchie, snatch is a story about underground boxing, bookmakers gangsters and a stolen diamond. I'm not even going to try and out line the plot, you really have to watch it. But what I do promise is a good crime thriller.
A few of the cast need special mention here. The film has a great duo in the form of Jason Statham and Stephen Graham. You may remember, back the days of 2000, that Jason Statham wasn't always cast in god awful action roles. In Snatch he is really in his element, more than just a type-cast tough guy, but a tough guy none-the-less. Stephen Graham on the other hand, I feel is a greatly under rated actor, and I believe this wont be the last time he makes this blog. He was great in Snatch, and just about everything I've seen him in, most recently This is England '86. Vinne Jones plays the same character that he does in every movie he's ever been in, and does it well. Brad Pitt, was a little less convincing in his role as a Irish Pikey, but not enough to spoil the part or the movie.

Once again, I would find it hard to describe what is going on in this scene, if you've already seen the movie you'll understand, if you've not, then you wont. It's as simple as that. Enjoy.

  6. Brad Pitt can be kind of hit-and-miss. He'll never measure up to what he was in Fight Club and Inglorious Basterds, regardless.
