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 Antwerp jeweler. In the first group are friends and business partners Turkish (Jason… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ritchie may be skilled at generating controlled chaos, but his surprise-a-minute strategy ultimately holds no surprises."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"An entertaining romp of a crime caper flick that wants to be funny more than it wants to be dangerous or mysterious."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"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."
‑ , Film4
"Snatch is a full-throttle comedic crime caper that more than resembles Lock, Stock... yet remains a rollicking good time in its own right."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"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."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"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."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Eccentric characters, lively banter, adults only."
‑ M. Faust, Common Sense Media
"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."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"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."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"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."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"The cinematic dazzle, the high pitch to which he leads his actors, the relish of sheer velocity are reward enough."
‑ Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic
"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."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"...an ideal follow-up to writer/director Guy Ritchie's debut effort, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Fortunately, the drop in entertainment value from one Ritchie film to the next isn't as steep as the drop in originality."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
