Product Description

Product Description

From Guy Ritchie, the writer/director of the acclaimed films Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, comes RocknRolla, a story of sex, thugs and rock 'n roll.

When a Russian mobster orchestrates a crooked land deal, millions of dollars are up for grabs. And all of London's criminal underworld wants a piece of the action.

From Amazon.co.uk

The film career of Guy Ritchie has endured a few bumps in recent years, with a collection of generally forgettable films from a man clearly capable of so much more. Thank goodness then for RocknRolla, which marks a smashing return to form, as he heads once more to the criminal underworld of London.

This time, Ritchie is playing far closer to the likes of Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and while RocknRolla may see the director playing on safer ground than of late, it doesn’t take long for the decision to be vindicated. The plot surrounds a real-estate job with millions at stake, and it gives ample excuse to unleash a collection of raw gangsters and tough guys into the mix, who each fancy a bit of the action.

Thus, RocknRolla brings together Gerard Butler’s Scottish gangster, Tom Wilkinson’s London crime lord, Toby Kebbell’s drug-addicted musician and the likes of Thandie Newton, Mark Strong and Jeremy Piven too. And Ritchie’s cast serve him really well, making ample mileage out of the lines they’re given.

Granted, all of this is hardly fresh territory for the director, but RocknRolla is nonetheless funny, action-packed and a good British mob film to while away an evening with. Welcome back, Mr Ritchie… --Jon Foster

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.

We all know ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ as the film that practically reinvented the modern day British crime thriller (not to mention launch a certain Mr Ritchie’s career) and then ‘Snatch’ as the sort-of follow up starring Brad Pitt which was a kind of compendium piece to Lock, Stock. Then Guy Ritchie’s name got attached to a singer and things didn’t go so well for a while. Then came ‘Rocknrolla’ – which everyone (especially Guy Ritchie) made clear was not just a return to form, but a return to his gangster roots.

It’s about yet another gang of mockney London scoundrels who fall foul to yet another London kingpin gangster and have to come up with yet another crafty plan to come up with the cash and save their own skins in the process. Yes, it’s basically the same plot as Lock, Stock and Snatch. That should be a drawback, but it’s still fun.

I think if you compare Rocknrolla to Lock, Stock and Snatch you may be a little disappointed, as it’s not quite as uber-cool as either of them. However, if you compare it to the plethora of other imitation Guy Ritchie British gangster films, you’ll realise it’s actually pretty good. Or at least definitely watchable if you’re a fan of the genre.

I would say that Gerard Butler is the star, but he doesn’t seem to be in it enough to be classed as the ‘definite’ star. I know Ritchie’s films are famous for their use of multiple characters and storylines all crossing over and finally coming together, but Rocknrolla seems to have one or two too many stars in it. The cast is indeed impressive and almost every ‘hood’ is recognisable, but that just means that not all of them are fully developed as characters – Idris Elba, Geoff Bell and Thandie Newton in particular.

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.
