A fast paced British comedy about four friends who need to make a lot of cash quick after losing a sketchy poker match. Lots of British humor, off the wall characters, and a line up of unbelievable scenes put director Guy Ritchie on the map.
Yeah, this is an awesome movie. Definitely one of the best of the nineties.
The story revolves around 8 groups of criminals that all are somehow connected to each other. All of them are all involved in either revenge, drugs, money or guns and they use a lot of violence to get to the point they wanna go.
This movie is also incredible funny, anyone remembered that scene where the gang that robbed the marijuana growers was about to ambush the gang that stole their money from them but instead of those guys showing up the gang the marijuana belonged to showed up? With that Greek music that was playing in the background? I couldn't stop laughing the first time i saw that scene.
With this movie Guy Ritchie showed that he had some real talent. And 2 years later he showed everyone that is wasn't a one-time fluke with Snatch.
This movie is also responsible for launching the career of some of the people who worked on it, namely Guy Ritchie, Vinnie Jones and off course Jason Statham.
