10 Movies You Forgot Had Incredible Casts (And Why You Forgot)

9. Snatch

Anchorman 2 Thumb
Columbia Pictures

Guy Ritchie’s second outing on the big screen didn’t disappoint in 2000 and still holds up today. The chaotic and gritty setting of the London crime era matches the darkly comic script that helped cement Ritchie as a force to be reckoned with in cinema. Snatch is a staple of British crime films as well as comedy even with the blood, punches and intense swearing. I mean who doesn’t love a hard-hitting crime comedy? Especially in London.

But the intricate story that mirrors the messy chain of London’s underbelly is hiding a gang of amazing actors. There’s Jason Statham and Brad Pitt of course, they steal the screen as they usually do. With Pitt's surprisingly brilliant performance as the gypsy boxer and Statham as his usual gruff gangster type, they are at the front of your mind throughout.

However, they are still joined by an incredible ensemble cast. Oscar winning Benicio Del Toro with Vinnie Jones, Alan Ford, Lennie James, Jason Flemyng and William Beck all swear their way through this modern classic.

The Reason Why You Forgot - It’s a full-time job just keeping track of all the robberies and fights and underhand deals. The cast get caught up in this difficult web. With all the fights, creative swearing and diamond heists, you forget about who is committing them. You’re always thinking about who’s screwing over who rather than who they are.


If you have clicked on here, get ready to be bored. I'm just a 20 year old white male who has a (probably) unhealthy obsession with pop culture Film and TV. Handy in a trivia game but not much else. My parents were never murdered, I'm not avenging my dead wife. Just plain, old sat at a computer with a head full of knowledge I mostly don't use I was born and raised in the Black Country near Birmingham, England however am now living in Manchester, England after I moved here two years ago. I currently attend the University of Salford, studying Broadcast Journalism. That's it really. Told you there was nothing special. If you're really that desperate for something to do, follow me on socials. Yes, I do like that ego boost.
