Some classic and genuinely unusual scenes. Different enough to be well worth watching. The film 'rocknrolla' should have been, and clearly NOT just another Brit gangster flick! After a slightly cheesy start, with over-acting from Phil Olivier, I became completely drawn in by the plot, with performances getting better as things went along (it must have been filmed in sequence).
Humorous and brutal, touching and chilling, I simply could not switch it off last night, and am now compelled to pen this review despite suffering from sleep deprivation ;-). I know films, and I know good from bad, and I know you will not regret adding this film to your collection!
