A thoroughly competent, pulpy gangster pastiche.
March 6, 2018
With this morbidly bouncy black comedy Ritchie finds a sneaky way to avoid sophomore slump: by passing his freshman tests all over again. And now for something completely different, please.
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.
January 2, 2011
Eccentric characters, lively banter, adults only.

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.

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.

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.

...an ideal follow-up to writer/director Guy Ritchie's debut effort, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
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.
February 10, 2004
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.

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

Writer-director Guy Ritchie might as well have added subtitles saying, 'Take that, Quentin Tarantino!'
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.
September 4, 2002
A twisty, fun and high energy, if not particularly groundbreaking... de facto sequel to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Most of the people we meet have names like Boris the Blade, Gorgeous George or Doug the Head; as you might suspect, none of them are likely to be found taking high tea at Harrods.
