    Default RockNRolla




    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1032755/

    When a Russian mobster sets up a real estate scam that generates millions of pounds, various members of London's criminal underworld pursue their share of the fortune. Various shady characters, including Mr One-Two, Stella the accountant, and Johnny Quid, a druggie rock-star, try to claim their slice...
    if you liked "Snatch" and Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels" you will love this.............

    It was entertaining enough.

    They just didn't focus closely enough on the characters, and tried to incorporate too many story lines in my opinion.

    Some of the character were pointless and detracted from the flow of the film also (Jeremy Piven and Ludacris' unconvincing performances come to mind).

    Not bad though.

    yeah i liked it, not nearly as good as lock stock or snatch.

    i loved the fuckin russians who wouldnt die lol... on the train tracks...

    8/10 for me, lock stock is a 9/10 and snatch is an 8.5/10.

    i dont know why people constantly hate on guy ritchie, he did marry a musclular woman by the name of madonna, but he writes good films(that arent always about london gangsters)... Revolver was a great film also.

    Im suprised that americans like these movies, I haven't seen Rocknrolla yet but based off of Lock stock and snatch (revolver was garbage) I would have thought they would have been "too british" for american tastes.

    "Revolver" is seriously underrated in my opinion.

    "Rock'N'Rolla" was alright to me....

    Real interesting main character.

    The Pencil scene was messed up hahaha

    Thought Revolver & RocknRolla were both decent films, I preferred Revolver out the 2 but Snatch is still his best work imo
