So this is Guy Ritchie's big comeback? Huh.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 30, 2008
Ritchie is just going through the gangster motions, and almost all the entertainment value has vanished.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 8, 2008
RocknRolla often feels more like a parody of a Guy Ritchie film than a real movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 31, 2008
Ritchie, who shoots and cuts everything in RocknRolla like an ad for a particularly greasy brand of fragrance for men, delivers the beatings and killings in his trademark atmosphere of morally weightless flash.

The denizens of Guy Ritchie's now-familiar London underworld milieu seem second-string here, even though the writer/director has recruited some new faces.
August 1, 2009
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.

It seems that 'two smoking barrels' was more than enough. Three is pushing it. Or, as the newly-separated spouse Madonna may have said, 'Enough already.'
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/10
October 31, 2008
RocknRolla never feels like it's building to anything, and when we get to the end, we discover it wasn't, in fact, building to anything.

Guy Ritchie's latest is an exercise in substance-less style.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 31, 2008
Promoted as a story of 'sex, thugs and rock'n'roll,' this highly stylised mobster movie couldn't even be remotely confused with the real thing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 1, 2008
RocknRolla is pure Guy Ritchie. All style and not even a pretense of substance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 6, 2008
Alas, Guy Ritchie seems to have lost even what little touch he once had, his latest a typically convoluted saga about strangely named big- and little-time crooks that's fatally deficient in verve.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 31, 2008
The film has the sprawl of a hardboiled novel, but without the richness of character that the best of that genre has to offer.
October 8, 2008
You'd think that being married to Madonna, Guy Ritchie would have picked up on the value of occasionally reinventing oneself.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
October 31, 2008
Part of the problem is that the plot is just too cluttered. There are far too many characters and sub-plots jostling for attention.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
November 7, 2008
For a while you go along for the ride. But as the film progresses it becomes increasingly unwieldy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 31, 2008
It is perhaps high time for us to just come out and finally admit to the world that director Guy Ritchie is not a very good filmmaker.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 31, 2008
Ritchie's characters are glamorous underworld fantasies, but he's incapable of making them resonate; to stand for something.
October 8, 2008
The violence is idiotic and brutal (the story is just idiotic), but it's also so noncommittal that it doesn't offend. Like the filmmaking itself, the violence has no passion, no oomph, no sense of real or even feigned purpose.
