Mob boss Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson) and Archy (Mark Strong) are the main figures of this crime flick. Stella (Thandie Newton) gives One-Two (Gerard Butler) a job. Lacks character development for other characters and story somewhat confusing. Lacks the charm and humor of Lock and Snatch despite its similar characters. Soundtrack always impressive coming from the director. RocknRolla is a descent mob movie if given the patience to focus on the plot and myriad of eccentric characters.

This movie was so much better then I though that it would be. I remember seeing previews for it and thinking it would be just horrible. After watching the movie I was proved wrong, the story soundtrack, acting, flow, plot were all great. There where only two minors complaints that I had. First it drug on a little in a couple spots and the dance scene was kinda stupid. Otherwise the movie was fantastic, I loved the robbery scene, I don't think I have laughed that hard in a long time. Overall the movie was enjoyable and fun to watch, this is a must see.

I thought it was very clever--the British humor wasn't dry. Most of the characters are undeveloped which normally might not bother a viewer; HOWEVER, there were some great scenes and flashbacks with the characters of Lenny, Archie, and Johnny Quid--i really enjoyed their complicated relationships and I wanted to see more. The middle dragged but the ending was completely worth it!

There's a lot to keep track of, but this slick crime caper is worth it. Everyone's connected, but no one quite knows how - the cast works great together and as long as you pay attention, it's interesting.

"RocknRolla" by Yojimbo

A pair of small time thieves unknowingly rip off the powerful Russian underworld to appease a local mobster to whom they owe money. Rock N Rolla smells like Guy Ritchie desperately trying to give the public "what they want". It's very much a return to his roots and maybe should have been called "Lock, Stock and Smoking Snatch" (but I for one am quite glad it wasn't...) Instead of antique shotguns we have a painting. Instead of pigs we have crayfish. All of the characters are not only the familiar Ritchie stereotypes, they pretty much are the SAME Ritchie stereotype; every character is virtually identical played by a host of different actors. The plot is convoluted yet predictable and the edginess of dark humour is sorely missing; it just seemed like a sanitized copy of a Ritchie movie rat...

Really only for Guy Ritchie fans

The latest from writer/director Guy Ritchie is a bit of a convoluted tale of real-estate scams in London. Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson) runs an under the table service of getting property rights quickly passed through red tape for an exorbitant fee. Anyone needing business done quickly has no other option than to go through Cole.

After bilking two tough guys (Gerard Bulter, Idris Elba) out of their dream, and getting them to owe him money, Cole moves onto business with a Russian (Karel Roden). Here’s where things get complicated.

In need of some fast cash One Two (Butler) and Mumbles (Elba) take a job from an associate (Thandie Newton) to rob a large supply of money coming into London. Unknown to the pair the money is the payoff the Russian is bringing to Cole, and its theft jeopar...
