Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels director Guy Ritchie heads back to the London underworld for this hyperkinetic crime comedy concerning a shady land deal that leaves every schemer in the city determined to get rich or die trying.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is a wonderful movie."
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"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."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"It's all about the set-up and not the actual payoff."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"'RocknRolla' takes more left turns than imaginable. It might make sense in the mind of Guy Ritchie, but to the rest of the universe, I can not imagine the film will translate."
‑ Clay Cane,
"Breaks no new ground for movies or for Ritchie, but it is an amusing diversion and therefore a return to form. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Guns, gangsters, and Richie's unique style and tone make his latest picture just plain fun."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"RocknRolla is a recovery from the knockout blows of his past two films but Ritchie is certainly retreading familiar thematic territory."
‑ Ted Fry, Seattle Times
"RocknRolla is a return to form, of sorts, for Mr. Ritchie. ... The British director has returned to familiar territory, that of the small-time hood."
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
"A self conscious re-working of Guy Ritchie's now familiar style and storyworld."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"Some movies go off on tangents. This movie is nothing but tangents."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"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."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"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."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"An over-long mish-mash of scarcely linked sub-plots..."
‑ Anders Wotzke, Moviedex
"It's long, confusing but is definitely saved with great performances and a tight episodic script..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"In spite of the film being derivative, RocknRolla is still a lot of fun. At least, what you can understand of it."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
