Snatch is the brilliant film by director Guy Ritchie (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Ritchie once again takes us into the bowels of the London Underworld as a diamond heist goes terribly wrong. This brilliant black comedy features some stunning performances by the actors involved.

The movie is complimented by a great soundtrack recorded in a down and gritty style that perfectly suits the mood of each scene and truly enables each story viewpoint to be as great as the sum of it's parts. The movie's storyline is in essence very similar to the way that Quentin Tarantino puts together a film with the story rotating around a number of key players and then coming together at the end.

In this tale, the contents of a diamond heist are on their way to New York via London when they are lost and all hell breaks loose. Many different factions all want the main diamond in the haul for their own reasons and will do anything to get it. Told from different angles, Snatch will have you riveted from start to finish.

This is a two disc collectors edition and contains many Easter eggs in the menu so be sure to click around on the menu away from the main choices. You will not be disappointed. The extras on the discs are varied and fantastic to watch. This movie is highly recommended.
