When a Russian mobster orchestrates a crooked land deal, millions of dollars are up for grabs, drawing in the entire London underworld into a feeding frenzy at a time when the old criminal regime is losing turf to a wealthy foreign mob.
Lenny Cole, a London mob boss, puts the bite on all local real estate transactions. For substantial fees, he's helping Uri Omovich, a Russian developer. As a sign of good faith, Omovich loans Cole a valuable painting, promptly stolen off Cole's wall. While Cole's men, led by the dependable Archie, look for the canvas, three local petty criminals, the Wild Bunch, steal money from the Russian using inside information from his accountant, the lovely Stella. Meanwhile, a local drug-addled rocker, Johnny Quid, is reported drowned, and his connection to Cole is the key to unraveling the deceits and double crosses of life in the underworld.Written by
During the flashback to Johnny's childhood, Lenny switches off his stereo. As he switches it off, he pushes the top part of the stereo out of place. When the camera pans back out, we can see that the stereo is back in the correct position. See more »
People ask the question... what's a RocknRolla? And I tell 'em - it's not about drums, drugs, and hospital drips, oh no. There's more there than that, my friend. We all like a bit of the good life - some the money, some the drugs, others the sex game, the glamour, or the fame. But a RocknRolla, oh, he's different. Why? Because a real RocknRolla wants the fucking lot.

Guy Ritchie going through the motions
1) Mark Strong and Tom Wilkinson are great in every scene they're in
2) Some of the humour is laugh out loud funny
3) Features the kind of sharp and fast dialogue you'd expect from a Guy Ritchie film
1) The Toby Kebbel character is extremely annoying and actually adds nothing to the story
2) The running gag about which way Gerard Butler swings is cringeworthy
3) The action scenes are shot with such a shaky camera that it made me feel a bit sick
