Guy Ritchie’s second feature met with relative indifference 16 years ago, consensus deeming it Lock Stock Mk.2 and finding Ritchie needed to branch out if he was to meet his debut’s promise. (It only took a further four films to realise that for himself.) The consensus is very different today: taking IMDb’s Top 250 as a bellwether, Snatch is #94 and Lock Stock is #138.
I thought it was like Pulp Fiction refashioned in the style of Lock Stock, but with more-connected stories that play concurrently.
It was fine. Above average, even.
That’s all I have to say about it.
