So happy I finally got around to watching this one! I love pretty much all of Guy Ritchie's films, but I had never gotten around to seeing this one and was I ever missing out! It's absolutely hilarious!

A tad more than a trifle convoluted, but not too bad.

One of the funniest movies ever - I fell off my sofa I laughed so hard. Yes, maybe not Ritchie's best but this is his milieu. He knows these people. He knows what they're like and isn't afraid to spoof them. Great cast, great dialogue with a wicked sense of humour and where did he get some of those mugs? If you love British humour and dialogue straight out of the East End yeah, you'll love this movie.

I absolutely loved it! Obviously apart from Guy Ritchie's excellent direction it had some absolutely fantastic dialogue sharp conversations and some trademark British humor. Anybody who likes action flicks should enjoy this movie.

Fun at points, but not up to Mr. Ritchie's usual standard.

Lenny Cole: Look, you go see if you can find them two flash idiots that used to be his manager. What are they called, uh, Greek and Minnie.
Archie: Roman and Mickey.

Archie: People ask the question... what's a RocknRolla? And I tell 'em - it's not about drums, drugs, and hospital drips, oh no. There's more there than that, my friend. We all like a bit of the good life - some the money, some the drugs, other the sex game, the glamour, or the fame. But a RocknRolla, oh, he's different. Why? Because a real RocknRolla wants the fucking lot.

Lenny Cole, a London mob boss, puts the bite on all local real estate transactions. For substantial fees, he's helping Uri Omovich, a Russian developer. As a sign of good faith, Omovich loans Cole a valuable painting, promptly stolen off Cole's wall. While Cole's men, led by the dependable Archie, look for the canvas, three local petty criminals, the Wild Bunch, steal money from the Russian using inside information from his accountant, the lovely Stella. Meanwhile, a local drug-addled rocker, Johnny Quid, is reported drowned, and his connection to Cole is the key to unraveling the deceits and double crosses of life in the underworld.
