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

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.

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]

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.

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.

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

A very slick, sophisticated plot with some well-written characters.

November 5, 2008
A richly entertaining work that overflows with stylish set pieces (including what is easily the funniest and most economical sex scene ever committed to film).

November 4, 2008
A little too long, way too many characters and a pretty good ending sums up Ritchie's latest bombastic ode to the ugly side of London.

Welcome back, Mr. Ritchie. I missed your work when you were, you know, Swept Away into an uncomfortable filmmaking zone.

"RocknRolla" is fun, ridden with dark humor mixed with violence [but] its near two-hour run time should have been more like 90 minutes.

You don't just watch a Guy Ritchie movie. They are to be experienced. Some circles consider his films more of an assault on the senses than exploration of plot.
