This is a wonderful movie.

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

RocknRolla feels as if Ritchie is imitating his favourite director here, and that director is Guy Ritchie.
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.
October 31, 2008
Style is what RocknRolla is all about. And it has it in spades, from the cockney Pulp Fiction dialogue to the music-video editing of the rambling narrative.
October 31, 2008
RocknRolla is a recovery from the knockout blows of his past two films but Ritchie is certainly retreading familiar thematic territory.
October 31, 2008
As in other Ritchie films, RocknRolla attempts to depict a world of ever-expanding chaos. But the chaos is only in the way the story is told. The actual vision Ritchie offers is pedestrian and tame.
October 31, 2008
This exuberant exercise in pretzel-plotted crime capers is a ridiculously entertaining piece of nonsense, devoid of all the attempts at psychological complexity and philosophical navel-gazing that bogged down Revolver.
October 31, 2008
Flashy but assured, the film is a controlled exercise in style that toes the line but never feels over-the-top. In a word, RocknRolla rocks.
October 31, 2008
A handsome ensemble of blokes and one high-heeled accountant who propel this slam-bang romp about the collision of criminal styles in the age of globalization and real estate speculation.
October 31, 2008
For all its hipster posturing, fast cutting, and camera tricks, this tale of chicanery is peculiarly arid and brittle, without a single character worth caring about.
October 31, 2008
This is the first of his cartoons to work better as a movie than as a fashion spread.
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.
October 30, 2008
RocknRolla reminds us of how cool Ritchie was before Madonna doused his fire. Pity he makes us wait so long.
October 30, 2008
RocknRolla isn't as jammed with visual pyrotechnics as Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Smoking Barrel (1998), but that's OK, because with anything more happening, the movie could induce motion sickness.
October 30, 2008
RocknRolla, though not the most original movie ever made, is a blast, an adrenaline rush of punked-out rock-and-roll-fueled action and crime.
October 29, 2008
Ritchie is back on comfortable, familiar footing here with this story of British gangsters who are so busy trying to screw each other over, they don't realize that they're in over their heads.
October 13, 2008
If RocknRolla clings to the company of ne'er-do-wells, it's not because they bristle with the frustrations of society, but purely because Ritchie wants to borrow their cheeky charm -- a virtue that, in reality, none of them possess.
October 10, 2008
Sometimes it amounts to a laugh or two.
