A ready-made cult classic!
8 February 2009 | by empengiSee all my reviews

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!
