February 26, 2012
An entertaining romp of a crime caper flick that wants to be funny more than it wants to be dangerous or mysterious.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
January 2, 2011
Eccentric characters, lively banter, adults only.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 6, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 15, 2008
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.

Ritchie may be skilled at generating controlled chaos, but his surprise-a-minute strategy ultimately holds no surprises.
May 26, 2006
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
February 9, 2006
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.
January 15, 2006
...an ideal follow-up to writer/director Guy Ritchie's debut effort, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 6, 2005
Snatch is a full-throttle comedic crime caper that more than resembles Lock, Stock... yet remains a rollicking good time in its own right.

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.

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

December 6, 2004
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.

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.

May 22, 2003
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.

February 8, 2003
Snatch, while somewhat hard to follow, represents a fascinating study in character interaction and complex plot development.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 2, 2002
What we have here is a gaudy mess. At times it feels like it's being made up as it goes along.
October 15, 2002
Writer-director Guy Ritchie might as well have added subtitles saying, 'Take that, Quentin Tarantino!'
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 26, 2002
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.
September 10, 2002
All the Tarantino trademarks, basically, except that it's not nearly as enjoyable, inventive or clever.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
September 7, 2002
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.
