Well, here is another cult movie in caper category, again from British director, Guy Ritchie. It was a big hit in box office, thanks to Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro who joined the great ensemble British cast of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Since one of the most important thing to me is originality, and I take this as kind of remake of Lock, although Snatch was pretty enjoyable caper, but just forgettable.

Snatch was made after a limited success of Lock only two year later by internationalizing Lock with big names to reach a box office success the the other one couldn't. The ones who have seen this one before Lock, like Snatch better and the vice versa. It is natural, cause you have a strong feeling that you are seeing the same movie. If you haven't seen neither of them yet, see them in chronological order and get ready for a great caper feast.
 

A special mention to Brad Pitt's acting. Isn't he great once again?

The movie won Best British Actor Award with Vinnie Jones, who won Best Debut only two years ago with Lock in Empire Awards. t also won Best Directing (Ritchie) in the same award and nominated for Best Picture category.
