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.

I really wanted to like this. I even expected to. It had all the ingredients: a great cast, Ritchie at the helm having penned it himself, and hey - just like the tagline says - a story about sex and thugs and rock 'n roll.

But it didn't work for me. It didn't have that X factor, that soul, that special stamp of identity that makes you remember it for years to come. The story was typically convoluted yet simple so any audience can 'get it', the characters brilliantly chosen and pushing the limits of stereotype but never really breaking through (so that's good), and the soundtrack, while uninspired overall, was still just right for the mood and Ritchie-stamp. Definitely a case of the whole not matching up to the sum of its parts and in the end, a really poor comparison to classics like Lock Stock.

Don't get me wrong - Tom Wilkinson was funny as old-skool hood Lenny Cole and it was great to see him back on home turf after putting on some less than convincing accents on the other side of the pond. His back-up man Archy was played by Mark Strong - who was outstanding in the lead role in The Long Firm - and although I think he makes for a better front-man than support it was great to see him here and he added some of his own particular gravitas to the cast. Another welcome player, albeit peripheral, was Idris Elba (Stringer Bell in The Wire) but overall I found myself enjoying the performances of individual actors rather than the unity of the team, and feeling that there was something missing that could and should have given the finished article a special attitide, an edge, something to remember it by. I can understand why many viewers would like like it and maybe even like it a lot, but as for me, I have to reluctantly say that it missed out.

This film is an amazing piece of work from Guy Richie.
From the very beginning to the very end this film will keep you interested and entertained.
It has a brilliant soundtrack, good cinematography, and a strong storyline with good actors.
The one fault with this film is that you have to really listen to what everyone says to get the storyline properly, but if you buy this cheap DVD then you can watch as much as you like so you won't miss a thing.

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!

After watching and adoring "Lock, stock and two smoking barrels" and "Snatch", I had high hopes for this film, especially considering the cast - but I was ultimately a little bit disappointed. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

I will not say much about the story, it is for you to discover, but this is another Guy Ritchie British gangster film, so you can expect to find a mob boss (played here by Tom Wilkinson), a femme fatale (played here by Thandie Newton) and three small time crooks somehow overwhelmed by the stuff they got themselves into (played here by Gerald Butler, Idris Elba and Tom Hardy), as well as some other colorfoul characters.

There is some humour, as the director attempted to repeat the success of his earlier British gangster films, but this movie is really significantly less funny than the two previously mentioned masterpieces. Also, some characters are simply impossibly annoying, like Johny Quid, the prodigal son of the mob boss (and also terminal junkie).

Some dead bodies will drop, people will get double-crossed, there will be some robberies, sex, Russian gangsters, an appearance of the Old Bill, etc. - but somehow all this doesn't work as it should. Also, a part of the plot is in fact simply copy pasted from "Layer Cake" - and that really wasn't necessary... Finally, some things are not definitely explained at the end of the film (it concerns mostly Thandie Newton's character), as if it has been poorly edited and some important scenes were removed by mistake. And I absolutely hate when it happens.

So, notwithstanding good actors and some good moments (especially two really hilarious robberies), this film is definitely a lesser thing than previous British gangster movies by Guy Ritchie. Watchable of course, but do not get your hopes too high.
