Nobody brings a man that big unless they want to say something without saying it.

Snatch is the second Gone in 60 Seconds by playing Bullet Tooth Tony, the Desert Eagle dot-five-oh carrying huntsman. Snatch has about five movies worth of dialog in it, and is so funny it will take about five viewings to get it all down. To be honest, I don't know what more I can say about the movie. It is excellent from beginning to end. I was laughing my ass off for quite a while, and only one scene in particular held amount of impact above the typical dark comedy. That one scene seemed a bit out of place for the rest of the movie, but it's motivational factors are important for the rest of the film.
The DVD is another import being viewed over my new trashy region free DVD player. It is a collectors edition, including two DVDs. One full of nothing but special features. The movie has a Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack and a 16x9 enhanced picture. There are deleted scenes, bonus footage, a directors commentary and a bunch of featurettes.
Guy Richie shows he really has it. Along with Paul Thomas Anderson, he shows he can consistantly make good movies using the same basic approach of abstract direction styles. It works, and it turns out some wonderful movies. Snatch is one of them.
