    Snatch is a 2000 film by British writer-director Guy Ritchie. It features an ensemble cast including Dennis Farina, Alan Ford, Stephen Graham, Lennie James, Brad Pitt, Benicio Del Toro, Vinnie Jones, Rade Šerbedžija and Jason Statham. Set in the London criminal underworld, the movie contains two intertwined plots — one dealing with the search for a stolen diamond, the other with a small-time boxing promoter named Turkish (Statham) who finds himself under the thumb of a psychotic gangster named Brick Top (Ford).

    The film is characterised by Ritchie's usual assortment of colourful characters, including the "pikey" Irish Traveller Mickey O'Neill (Pitt), Uzbek ex-KGB agent and arms-dealer Boris 'the Blade' Yurinov (or Boris the Bullet-Dodger) (Šerbedžija), professional thief-gambling addict Franky 'Four-Fingers' (del Toro) and bounty-hunter Bullet-Tooth Tony (Jones), who can "find you Moses in the burning bush if you pay him enough". It is also distinguished by a kinetic direction and editing style, and a circular plot featuring numerous ironic twists of chance and causality. It is also notable for its fast pace.

    The movie shares similar themes, ideas and motifs as Ritchie's first film, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. It is also filmed in the same visual style and features many of the same actors, including Vinnie Jones, Jason Statham and Jason Flemyng, who appears in a minor role as one of the 'pikies'.
