Movie Info

Guy Ritchie's sophomore follow-up to his 1998 sleeper hit Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch revisits the previous film's territory of London's crime-ridden underbelly, and does so with the same brand of humor and stylish direction that made Ritchie's first effort a surprise success. With a labyrinthine plot that is ostensibly oriented around a missing diamond, Snatch introduces viewers to three groups of characters intent on retrieving the elusive stone, which has been stolen from an … More

All Critics (149) | Top Critics (37) | Fresh (101) | Rotten (38) | DVD (38)

Ritchie may be skilled at generating controlled chaos, but his surprise-a-minute strategy ultimately holds no surprises.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

Ritchie's follow-up to Lock, Stock is an even more craftily concocted underworld entertainment, helped no end by the casting of Pitt as the bare-knuckle boxer Mickey.

This may be one of the hazardous offshoots of the music-video-trained generation of moviemakers; they confuse a diet of eye candy with a full meal.

New York Magazine/Vulture
Top Critic

Bouncing around in a world of bare-knuckle boxing, gypsy swindlers, pretend Jewish diamond merchants, indestructible Russian assassins and a thug who disposes of bodies by feeding them to hungry pigs, Snatch has enough plots for a fair-sized cemetery.

Globe and Mail

He's not breaking new ground with Snatch, merely fine-tuning the knack for disreputable kicks he showed in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

June 4, 2001
Rolling Stone
Top Critic

The cinematic dazzle, the high pitch to which he leads his actors, the relish of sheer velocity are reward enough.

March 8, 2001
The New Republic
Top Critic

An entertaining romp of a crime caper flick that wants to be funny more than it wants to be dangerous or mysterious.

Movie Metropolis

Eccentric characters, lively banter, adults only.

Full Review… | January 2, 2011
Common Sense Media

Snatch uses and abuses the template of its breakthrough predecessor, elevates it, and delivers an equal, if not better, version of a film we have all seen before, yet much better the second time around.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Of the ensemble, only Pitt truly shows his class, delivering an amusing yet emotive performance amongst a group of actors who -- at best -- are pandering to laddish culture.

Full Review… | April 15, 2008

It's a twisting, witty, and wise crime-boxing story about the hunt for a huge diamond and a prizefighter who can't take a fall.

Combustible Celluloid ideal follow-up to writer/director Guy Ritchie's debut effort, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Reel Film Reviews

Snatch is a full-throttle comedic crime caper that more than resembles Lock, Stock... yet remains a rollicking good time in its own right.

Film Threat

Madonna's husband is a dervish in the editing room, and he's not ashamed to have nicked most of the conventions of American noir.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Fortunately, the drop in entertainment value from one Ritchie film to the next isn't as steep as the drop in originality.

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

It's rather like the favorite pastime of this movie's villain ... throwing wild dogs into a pit and watching them fight until there's only one left standing.

Looking Closer

This is a swift, sharp picture that pleases the senses on all levels, ranging from the visual to the aural, the linguistic, and yes even the intellectual.

IGN Movies

There's just not a lot of fun to be had here. The plot is too convoluted, too filled with double-reversals and twists for us to turn our brains off, relax and watch Guy Ritchie's kinetic visual style.

Snatch, while somewhat hard to follow, represents a fascinating study in character interaction and complex plot development.

What we have here is a gaudy mess. At times it feels like it's being made up as it goes along.

Writer-director Guy Ritchie might as well have added subtitles saying, 'Take that, Quentin Tarantino!'

Cincinnati Enquirer

All the Tarantino trademarks, basically, except that it's not nearly as enjoyable, inventive or clever.

Montreal Film Journal

Ritchie's command of the visual medium is so skillful, his criminals so memorable and his writing so undeniably entertaining, that it's a wasted criticism to try and intellectually dissect [his] movies.

Audience Reviews for Snatch


An intriguing, interwoven plot. Much funnier than I expected. Pitt's accent was weak, but not to the point of distraction. Sometimes hard to discern the dialog due to heavy accents from the rest the cast. Still, thoroughly enjoyable caper.

Super Reviewer


Guy Ritchie delightfully resurrects and updates Damon Runyon's popular gangland mugs, transports 'em to Britain and has 'em go for a load of loot symbolized by a large hunk of shiny charcoal floating about. Good fun.

"I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this. It's a really funny, smart, entertaining film. The acting is great. I loved all the different characters. It was just a really enjoyable fun watch. Guy Ritchie really knows how to put a smart script together with a great cast. I loved Brad Pitt in this. It's probably my favorite performance by him. If you haven't had the chance to see this I recommend you do. It's very entertaining."


Super Reviewer


Guy Ritchie is to gangster movies what Rolls-Royce is to cars. Never does he fail to impress, and always does he offer quality writing. A king of the genre no doubt, and someone who has done a lot of good for the British film industry. Now, before I lose myself in all the praise for said director, I'd like to focus the rest of the review on the movie in question; suitably named Snatch. First of all, you know you're in for something good when names like Brad Pitt and Jason Statham show up in the credits. Their presence adds lustre to some already well-polished dialogue. Great plot as well, that makes the most of the film's running time. Complete with heists, fights, foul language and cool characters. Yes, it's all in there and waiting to be enjoyed. All you need to do is slide in the DVD disc and get your bowl of popcorn...or whatever snack it is you prefer with your British entertainment.
