As ever with Ritchie, RocknRolla is more flash than substance, but beneath the swagger his movie scratches away at British anxieties.

So this is Guy Ritchie's big comeback? Huh.

It's all about the set-up and not the actual payoff.

RocknRolla is a return to form, of sorts, for Mr. Ritchie. ... The British director has returned to familiar territory, that of the small-time hood.

An over-long mish-mash of scarcely linked sub-plots...

'RocknRolla' takes more left turns than imaginable. It might make sense in the mind of Guy Ritchie, but to the rest of the universe, I can not imagine the film will translate.

A self conscious re-working of Guy Ritchie's now familiar style and storyworld.

It's long, confusing but is definitely saved with great performances and a tight episodic script...

Breaks no new ground for movies or for Ritchie, but it is an amusing diversion and therefore a return to form. [Blu-ray]

Some movies go off on tangents. This movie is nothing but tangents.

In spite of the film being derivative, RocknRolla is still a lot of fun. At least, what you can understand of it.

Ritchie still has the knack for street-tough dialogue, and there's plenty of laughs amid the gunplay.

A patchwork of set pieces, held together by a hip soundtrack.

As a gangster named One Two, Gerard Butler is suitably rough around all his edges.

Guns, gangsters, and Richie's unique style and tone make his latest picture just plain fun.

A complex, violent and fun look at the London underworld, "RocknRolla" is for grownups who like gritty action and complex tales.

...the same tatty old tricks jumbled around to make them look fresh.

Allowing for its air of laddish self-congratulation and its sad whiff of homophobia, Ritchie's film is arguably his most entertaining to date.
