Rockin Rocknrolla!


In London, a real-estate scam puts millions of pounds up for grabs, attracting some of the city's scrappiest tough guys and its more established underworld types, all of whom are looking to get rich quick. While the city's seasoned criminals vie for the cash, an unexpected player -- a drugged out rock 'n' roller presumed to be dead but very much alive -- has a multi-million dollar prize fall into his hands. --

Gerard Butler
Thandie Newton
Jeremy Piven
Chris "Ludacris" Bridges

Guy Ritchie

My verdict

This film definitely has "Guy Ritchie" all over it and fans of "Lock, Stock.." and "Snatch" sure as hell will look forward to seeing another installment from Madonna's ex-husband (didn't realise that it took their separation for him to churn up another film -- guess he needs the moolah now that Madge is gone).

The whole film spells out T.O.U.G.H., just like all the others and the opening sequence has got me bowled over. Mr Ritchie has a knack for getting the word "astiiiig" out of my mouth during these first few minutes.

The acting by the leads were excellent (except for Ludacris, he seemed out of place in dodgy London streets) and the atmosphere of the whole film is well-played.

Some of the director's signature sequences still appear, but that's what's good about it, really.

The only problem I had with this film is somewhere in between, the fast-paced momentum hadn't been kept. This inconsistency resulted in dragging scenes which could've been made better by tweaking the script a little bit -- some people may even fall asleep.

But mid-storyline aside, I still liked it (but that's probably because I like hearing the London Eastend accent being spoken in a gangster film, what the heck).
