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.

This is a light-hearted (trans: unrealistic) tale of London criminal skullduggery during a property boom (whatever one of those was). It opens with a CASINO like sequence describing how money can be made and lost where crooked councillors fix planning permission. But thereafter it rolls into a tragi-comedy of errors with overly wordy repartee. Occasionally violence penetrates the jolly atmosphere but usually in a cartoonish way (the Russian/Chechen heavies in the chase scene), a possible exception being a Joe Peschi pencil job on the bouncer. All the characters are unpleasant and it is hard to care who comes out on top. The actor playing the Russian oligarch has a strange resemblance to...... someone else.

Better than revolver, nowhere near SNATCH, what would Brick Top say!

From writer and director Guy Ritchie (Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels and Snatch) comes a brilliantly funny crime caper with plenty of action and an all-star cast.

The film is about an old-school London gangster called Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson) who decides to swindle a wealthy foreign Mob boss with some property dealings, but in time both are getting played by a small crew of crooks. Things soon start to escalate out of control when a painting belonging to the foreign mob boss goes missing.

The Blu-Ray picture is excellent and the sound is superb.

Special features on the disc include:

* Commentary by writer/director Guy Ritchie & Co-Star Mark Strong
* Additional Scene : Will you put the cigarette out
* Blokes, Birds and Backhanders: Inside RocknRolla [in High-Definition]
* Guy's Town: The director reflects on his fascination with ever-evolving London [in High Definition]

Format: DVD
Guy Ritchie is obviously a strong adherent of the saying `if it ain't broke don't fix it', as this 2008 film is essentially another remake of his smash hit `Lock Stock and two Smoking Barrels', with which he made his name. Sticking rigidly to the formula of loveable rogues in London getting in to debt with a major local crime figure, and having to pull off some dodgy shenanigans to get the money to clear the debt, whilst in the background there is a hunt for some valuable object (shotguns in lock stock, a diamond in Snatch, a painting here) which served him so well in `Lock Stock' and `Snatch', he again weaves another tale of black humour and violence. Coming after the abysmal `Swept Away' and the disappointing `Revolver', it was a wise choice to return to the formula, and a halfway decent film results.

With a great cast to work with, including Tom Wilkinson who plays the viscous crime boss with just the right elements of brutality and inherent weakness, Mark Strong who makes and effective narrating voice and chief heavy, Gerard Butler and Idris Elba as the loveable rogues and a very hot Thandie Newton, some of the old Ritchie magic is back on display, and the big set pieces manage to impress. But the whole thing is let down by a feeling of having seen it before. Too many of the characters and too much of the plot are lifted directly form his previous films, and though this is reasonably entertaining it is starting to get a bit stale. It's a bit flat and never really catches fire (I wonder if a viewer seeing this without seeing Ritchies previous works would agree?) and there is often a feeling of going through the motions. So in all only 3 stars. Could have been a lot worse (and indeed, Ritchie has made a lot worse), but it isn't as good as `Snatch' or the Sherlock Holmes films.
