A great show that was canceled way too soon
When I first read the summary for this show it seemed like nothing new, A cop who went to jail for a crime he didn't commit and then was exonerated. However the way this show was handled character wise and even for a story this mundane the writers managed to put a lot of creativity into it. let's start with the best thing about this show the main character, this is one the best characters I've seen in a TV show in a long time, he's just so all-around likable he's everything a character like this should be; he's wild, he's tenacious, he's smart, he's kinda crazy but understandable at the same time, he's eccentric but knows when to be serious, he's just everything you look for in a main character and on top of that I find the supporting characters a lot fun to; his a partner has her own story arcs that I actually find rather interesting. and the cases that they work are entertaining and are very creative. The characters are deep, the writing is great, the story is creative it's just an all-around great show and it's a shame that it was canceled after just two short seasons.
Sure it might not be a comedy, but it's funny, suspenseful and an all around surprisingly good crime film.
Before I start I would like to say I went into this not expecting much more than an entertaining film where I'ld have a good time, but no more, no less. And though it was entertaining and I certainly had a blast watching it, there's more a lot more in-store for the viewer.
Snatch is written and directed by Guy Ritchie and man does he do a good job in the director's chair, honestly I've never really heard of Guy Ritchie before seeing this movie and honestly I'm glad I can be introduced to him this way. The way the plot moves from one story to an other is owed a lot to Mr. Ritchie's directing job as well as the performances on the parts of: Brad Pitt, Jason Statham, Stephen Graham etc. All the events of the film unfold through different stories, characters, and perspectives that all center around the heist of an eighty-six carrot diamond the size of a fist; throw in Trailer Trashing Gypsies, Small Time Bank Robbers, Two Con Men Gone In Way Over Their Heads, A Jewell Smuggler, A Bounty Hunter, and The Mob and you have one hell of an interesting and entertaining crime film.
Something I truly admire about the film is despite being a comedy (which it can be debated as to whether or not it is) there are scenes of genuine suspense namely the scene when Brick Top Threatens the bank robbers. Suspenseful, Hilarious, Endlessly Quotable as well as Excellent film editing and terrific story-telling; Snatch has become one of my favorite crime films and one of my favorite movies period.
And despite your personal preference of whether or not it's a comedy it it undoubtedly one of the best British films of the 2000s.
