Snatch (Special Edition) DVD

Entertaining and oddball - loved the Brad Pitt character

To make it short, I'll mention what I liked:

-I liked the use of commentary by Turkish and Tommy during the movie - they serve as the de facto narrators.

-I liked the rapid-cut intro and the way the director used the security cameras to show us the progress of the diamond thieves during the opening credits.

-I really liked the Brad Pitt character. Take full advantage of your DVD's ability to make subtitles because you'll need it with all of the accents - especially Brad Pitt's.

-the dog was fun (and hungry).

Dennis Farina
-I liked the way all of the characters were sleazy and yet markedly different from one another.

-I like the fact that the DVD includes deleted scenes with commentary. I did not like the fact that the commentary usually did not tell me why the scene was deleted.

I rate this movie 4 stars out of 5.
