All Guy Ritchie Movies Ranked by Tomatometer

Who had a more explosive directorial debut in the rollicking, post-Pulp Fiction ’90s than Guy Ritchie and his Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels? The stylish, gritty descent into the criminal underworld rocked both sides of the Atlantic, which then gave Ritchie the opportunity to give his style an even slicker, international sheen with Snatch.

So synonymous is Ritchie with this style and subject matter that no matter where his career takes him, whenever he returns to this topic it’s always celebrated as a back-to-basics comeback. RocknRolla, for example, helped sweep away the sour tastes of Swept Away and Revolver.

And now The Gentlemen has arrived as counterpoint to the blockbuster bombast of Aladdin and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. (Though certainly Sherlock Holmes and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. found a happy, kinetic medium between these two extremes.) See where the gangster flick – starring Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, and Hugh Grant – places as we rank the best Guy Ritchie movies (and the worst) by Tomatometer!

Adjusted Score: 41.07%

Directed By: Guy Ritchie

#5
#5
Adjusted Score: 77.817%
Critics Consensus: The Man from U.N.C.L.E. tries to distract from an unremarkable story with charismatic stars and fizzy set pieces, adding up to an uneven action thriller with just enough style to overcome its lack of substance.

Directed By: Guy Ritchie

#4

Sherlock Holmes (2009)
69%

#4
Adjusted Score: 76.743%

The Gentlemen (2020)

Snatch (2001)
