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.

Because a real RocknRolla wants the fucking lot.

This movie proves without a doubt that Guy Ritchie is a one-trick pony, someone who got lucky with his first movie and is doomed to forever rip it off for anything else he makes.
Guy Ritchie is so far removed from the gangster lifestyle he attempts to portray its laughable. Everything seems so hackneyed and clichéd, the script is as close to Lock Stock and Two Smokings barrels as you could get without actually making the same film.
The dialogue, choice of music editing, everything seems so forced, so desperately trying to be hip its pathetic. A truly terrible film.
