The movie is not boring, but it doesn't build and it doesn't arrive anywhere.

Simply put, Snatch stinks.

Like the director's other film, this has no strong role for a woman.

Its continuous action and frenetic pace don't make it either fresh or funny. I'm curious to see what genre Ritchie tackles next.

It's not a sequel, not a remake; it's reheated Ritchie.

Loaded down with too many characters and locations.

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

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

It was probably a lot of fun to make, but it really doesn't add anything to the genre, and it's not really a development over his first film.

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.

...showoff filmmaking that blatantly ignores the needs of story and character in favor of whatever happens to look 'cool.'
January 17, 2001
The kind of moronic, blood-soaked exercise in nihilism that might have felt fresh 25 years ago if accompanied by a score of Sex Pistols music, but now is stale and moldy in its excesses.

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 is like Chinese food: tastes great, but no sense memory afterward. I gave this movie a lower rating than Lock Stock even though I enjoyed Snatch more.

All the Tarantino trademarks, basically, except that it's not nearly as enjoyable, inventive or clever.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Mayhem posing as hip; motion aspiring to chic.

January 1, 2000
Snatch gives us a few distinctive and stylish moments, then recycles them and somehow expects that to be good enough.
| Original Score: 2/4
January 16, 2001
Fun for a time until the repetition factor sets in.

January 18, 2001
The dialogue is never quite as witty as it thinks it is, and the convoluted narrative and endless gun battles become wearisome over time.
| Original Score: 7/10

Snatch jettisons everything which was admirable about Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
