In 1995, he directed a short film, ''The Hard Case'', followed by the crime comedy ''Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'' (1998), his feature-length directorial debut. He gained recognition with his second film, ''Snatch'' (2000), which found critical and commercial success. Following ''Snatch'', Ritchie directed ''Swept Away'' (2002), a critically panned box-office bomb starring Madonna, to whom Ritchie was married between 2000 and 2008.

The former was nominated for Academy Awards in Best Original Score and Best Art Direction.

His other directed films include ''The Man from U.N.C.L.E.'' (2015), based on the 1960s television series, ''King Arthur: Legend of the Sword'' (2017), and ''Aladdin'' (2019), Disney's live-action adaptation of their 1992 animated film, which grossed over $1 billion worldwide, becoming one of the highest-grossing films in 2019 and the highest-grossing film of Ritchie's career. In 2019, he returned to crime comedy with ''The Gentlemen'' (2019), which was mostly well received and a commercial success. He subsequently reteamed with Jason Statham on the action films ''Wrath of Man'' (2021) and ''Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre'' (2023).
