RocknRolla Movie Reviews
User reviews on RocknRolla
Everybody wants to be a Gangster. Guy Ritchie creates another Boss versus Boss movie. This was entertaining and fun at times; however there was a little bit more to be desired. The acting was decent and the story-line worked, but just not enough surprising twists involved. Thandie Newton was great at playing the slick and sexy female everyone wants. Tom Wilkinson hid behind the sunglasses a little too much. They did leave this open for a sequel, and yes, I will go see that one too. Not a movie to rush and go see, but I definitely recommend the DVD rental. 3 Stars.
I heard a hilarious BBC podcast in which the hosts were beside themselves in their opinion of Mr. Madonna. They figured that the only reason "Rocknrolla" wasn't the worst every made is only because Guy Ritchie also made "Revolver" and "Swept Away." It's all about, as the BBC guys said, "guns and geezers." Something about Russian geezers, too. At least Thandie Newton is always easy on the eyes.
This british ganster film was just fun to watch. Although I don’t think that it was as good as Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels, it was still really fun. I also just love the accents and the slang so they could be talking about nothing (and often I do believe that is the case) and I would still be entertained.
This follows the same outline of many of Guy Richie’s movies, with what seems to be a large unrelated cast of characters at the start whose lives are all intertwined or destined to become that way. The story line was a little convoluted but if you paid attention then it wasn’t that difficult to follow. If you liked Snatch and Lock, Stock you will probably like this movie as well.
