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

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.

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.

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.

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

Ritche has nothing but fun with this movie and we get the feeling that the actors do the same.

Manages the trick of keeping the viewer entertained -- and aware of exactly who is where -- even when the movie is going in three directions at the same time.

It takes a very clever schoolboy to make a movie as elaborately empty as Guy Ritchie's Snatch.

A pointless exercise in cool by a film maker who needs to grow up. As in: Oh, grow up.

As an unfolding event, Snatch is fun to watch, even if no reasonable person could hope to understand the plot in one viewing.

A fairly cool movie and also a fairly good one.

Fun moments are ultimately slight compensation for Snatch's overall staleness.

You'll laugh and have a good old rowdy time watching Snatch. But as soon as you walk out of the theater, you'll ask yourself what it was you were laughing at.

Hip and stylish. It's also empty, but that's probably part of the style, which draws inspiration from Quentin Tarantino movies and vintage British gangster films as well as music videos.

Snatch just seems aggressively smug, like a doorman at a club that too desperately wants to be coolly exclusive.

Ritchie doesn't have a whole lot to say about matters of fate, morality and manhood.

Once again writer-director Ritchie demonstrates a deeply pleasurable combination of verbal flair and visual wit while conveying the genuine, intimidating hardness of the English working class and its love of language.

If stories don't happen fast, funny and powerful enough for you in the movies, push your way into the queue. This flick's for you.

In fondly revisiting (carbon copying, it often seems) his first film, he's proved merely what we already knew: that he can unleash comic mayhem par excellence. Enough of the little boys with big guns. It's time for Guy to grow up.

While watching Snatch, you'll sometimes wish the dialogue had subtitles and the movie came equipped with a plot synopsis. But you're bound to leave the theater with a smile.

You see the filmmaker setting up all of the flips and switches, yet he still surprises you with how he triggers them and what mayhem they cause.

It's the actors' conviction, no matter how bloody or ridiculous the plot turns, that gives the movie much of its loony humor.

Even if it's not quite as lighter than air as its predecessor, Snatch remains a lethal diversion.
