Guy Ritchie brought together a few inexperienced actors and outdated football players to create a “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”, which ridiculed the United Kingdom, but he did not expect to surprise all of them all at once. Not only won countless reputations and banknotes, but also successfully overthrew Aunt Mai, envying thousands of middle-aged men. When filming “SNATCH” again, he described London as a cold and humid city, and even the birth of Christianity was ridiculed as an error caused by the Greek translation, and the spirit of spoofing intensified.
Although the two films are not a sequel, they are at least sister films in every way, and they are even similar to the extent that many people confuse the two films. “SNATCH” is still slightly inferior to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, although it ranks higher on IMDB. There is not much breakthrough in plot processing and filming methods. It is a flaw. After experiencing the baptism of “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”, it is inevitable that it is just a work of fried rice. Even so, its excitement does not fall short of “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”.
The two films are also successful in the ingenuity of the script. They play with the complicated thread locks to make people amazing. Many characters with distinctive characters are intertwined in various contingency and inevitability to perform a cool story. Even a certain passerby-level character has a cool energy in his body, not to mention natural personality actors such as Sting, Pooh Jones, Jason Statham, and De Toro. Being able to show the personalities of many characters so vividly, I have to admire the director’s profound skill in portraying the characters. However, compared to the joy of “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”, the blackness of “SNATCH” is stronger. In “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”, the four uninfluenced punks are more fortunate. They retreat from many dangers without taking a shot, and they have also picked up a lot of cheap; the underground boxing economy in “SNATCH” Turkey is not so lucky. Four-fingered Frank, Tony Tony, Boris, Cousin Ivey, Hammer Top and many of his subordinates behind him are all ruthless characters. Murder, set fire, corpses, and destruction are commonplace. , A word that is wrong may become feed for pigs. The British, American, and Russian gangs joined together, and the three black brothers also participated in friendship on behalf of Africa. Even the Gypsies who looked very kind when doing business were not fuel-efficient lamps. Fortunately, Turkey has also been on the road for many years, but it can also deal with it calmly. The fact that there is no righteous gypsy in the audience is finally impressive. But the last suspense is that Turkey automatically pushes itself to the crater after getting diamonds. Will Ivey, who hates London, return?
The bored otaku who is full of food has always loved such evil movies. In particular, I like the British style of being serious but from time to time there are two sour words. Although this country is also rich in warm petty bourgeois movies such as “Finding Neverland” and “Saving Grace”, I think “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”, “SNATCH”, “In Bruges” and “Shaun of the Dead” are more representative of their country. Temperament: rich in gentlemen and football hooligans. And I feel that the ridicule of other countries in British movies is absolutely difficult for Americans to look forward to. They can add the prefix FUC*K before any country name, obesity, pedophilia, prostitution_prostitution can be compared with a few in the West Well-known countries are seated. As a result, people are always on guard against the harshness of the British. Even a kind reminder must be careful if it is deliberately teased. Fortunately, the West does not pay much attention to these, otherwise a movie will seriously hurt the feelings of the people of several countries. Of course, it’s a bit off topic. It was caused by bad Irish boys and was out of the scope of this film.
“SNATCH” is directed by Guy Ritchie, the originator of the black humor crime comedy, Brad Pitt, Benicio del Toro, Jason Statham and other powerful actors charge into the battle, a classic black humor comedy crime film It’s a matter of course. Although this movie may not be as smooth as “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” in one go, there are few movies of this type that can be made so wonderful. This type of movie is probably Guy Ritchie. This effect can be achieved, highly recommended!
