Editorial Reviews

“I own this town.” But owning is getting expensive for old-school London gangster Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson). A wealthier foreign mob is moving in with a riverfront property swindle. A small-timer (Gerard Butler) and his crew think they can play both sides and become big time. Now add a hard-as-ice accountant (Thandie Newton), a rocker playing dead to boost sales, wannabe music moguls (Jeremy Piven and Chris Bridges), a missing painting and a mad mosh of money and muscle, and youve got this funny, smash-mouth smackdown of sexthugs&rocknroll from writer/director Guy Ritchie (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch).

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection December 26, 2008
Format:DVD
Guy Richie has turned out the gem of his career with RockNrolla. Perfect cast (Wilkenson should get an award for this one) incredible sound track, and a wild and wicked plot. Unlike some of his others, this one makes it a bit easier to understand the dialects. It was the delight of my movie going month in October when it came out here in the U.S.

From reading some of the reviews that pan this movie, it is obvious that they are not familiar with Guy Richie's films, his style and his offbeat humor. It is sort of like licorice; Some people love it some people hate it. But for those of us who have the right mindset for Richie's style of film, this it the best one to come along in a long time.

Gerard Butler's turn in this is hysterically funny and is such a great switch from his role in 300. No type casting trap for Gerry. This guy can play the heck out of any role imaginable. But if the Wild Bunch shows up again in the next Richie film, I hope Gerry is included.

I find that Guy Ritchie's work inspires deep
feelings of love or hate!
There is no middleground among people when
it comes to him. Some see him as a ridiculous wanna-be
Scorcesse or DePalma, others see him as a fresh new voice
and vision in cinema for the 21st Century.
I enjoyed this movie and all it's rawness, dark humor,
violence and rollercoaster twists and turns!
Gerard Butler, Idris Elba & their motley crew of low dollar
thugs with ambitions for the bigtime made this movie for me!
Their interplay was priceless against the story's other very
interesting characters. I also love the cracked-out,
devil-may-care, balls-to-the-wall portrayal of the ROCK-N-ROLLA
himself, Johnny Quid, who is one of the main bad guy's stepson
who this whole crazy ride revolves around!--He is a hoot!

Jeremy Piven & Chris "Ludacris" Bridges play his smarmy
record company moguls who get tangled up in this wild web as well!
I don't care what anyone says!---I thought this was brilliant!
Now to prove my point of how Guy Ritchie's work polarizes people...
My mother, who watched this movie with me,
ABSOLUTELY THOUGHT IT WAS TRASH!!
You have to decide this one for yourself...

4.0 out of 5 stars "What Do You Think We Are...Criminals!" March 13, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Guy Ritchie makes films for guys about guys, and frankly "my son", this one is loving it...

I say this because there's appalling film critic snobbery surrounding Ritchie and I for one can't stand it. Ok, so "RocknRolla" is not Shakespeare - nor David Lean - so what! When you sit down to it, you do so with a grin on your puss the size of Britain's National Debt. Why - because you just know you're going to spend the next two hours giggling and grimacing (for all the wrong reasons of course) and you're going to be rightly and royally entertained. And bluntly how many British film directors-cum-writers are 'this' good - can entertain you 'this' much? In an industry that seems to have lost the knack of actually turning us on, on the strength of "RocknRolla", I for one will be looking out for the Blu Ray box of Guy Ritchie films and not yet another version of Bourne or Aliens (good as they may be).

The story is layered and smart; the dialogue is either crude or ballbreakingly funny - or frequently both - and the casting is varied and immaculate - all of them clearly enjoying themselves. The songs are apt and used sparingly and there's an already classic one-liner that had many of our customers in the shop laugh out loud when we played the CD the other day (dialogue inbetween the music tracks).

The good news for fans is that the BLU RAY version of "RocknRolla" is beautifully filmed and I think actually suits Ritchie's film style to a tee - it makes the sharp suits and the London locations shine more. Actor wise - "RocknRolla" is crammed full of great cameos and has a lot of classy leading double acts. Tom Wilkinson is the bigwig old-school London criminal Lenny Cole with Mark Strong as Archie his sidekick. Both are typically outstanding.

Format:DVD
An interesting cast was assembled to tackle a twist-filled script, directed by a craftsman experience in the genre of everyday mobsters in modern day London. Every editing trick in the book was used. Clever camera work was deployed. A pulsing soundtrack provided a burst of extra energy. Yet in the end, ROCK N ROLLA is a whole lot of elements that look like they should be something resulting in a movie that is less than the sum of those parts.

Guy Ritchie doesn't really seem capable of directing a thoroughly engaging, focused film anymore. ROCK N ROLLA has a fairly complex plot, full of deceptions and back-stabbing...yet we follow it easily due to constant narration. I don't mind narration...but what it does for this film is take the place of tight filmmaking. We're too often being TOLD what's happening and what it means rather than experiencing and learning for ourselves. It feels like Ritchie is just repeating himself here, copying ideas that have worked for him before, and throwing them into a blender with some narration.

I won't attempt to rehash much of the plot here, but much of it revolves around London mobster Tom Wilkinson trying to work with incoming Russian mobster Karel Roden. Roden wants to pay Wilkinson the agree-upon sum of $7 million to smooth the way for building permits...but the money keeps getting stolen. The actual thefts are executed by some lower level thugs (Gerard Butler & Idris Elba), but are planned by Roden's deceitful accountant (Thandie Newton). In addition, Wilkinson's got a rock-star stepson named Johnny Quid, who has stolen a valuable painting that needs to be returned by Wilkinson to Roden. And so on. Mark Strong plays Archie, Wilkinson's right-hand man and our narrator.

C. Pratt, you're finding the same frustration(s) I am. I just posted about this in the Blu-ray discussion forums. WB is notorious for being customer-unfriendly.
