    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    RocknRolla is a kickass crime drama that just doesn't know to quit while it's ahead. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    A well-acted and attitudinal action movie, a return to Ritchie's trademark "Mockney" style, which takes amusing and twisted turns. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    If only RocknRolla's characters were at all believable - even in the context of its own cartoon universe. show more

    On the plus side, the actors - especially Butler and Wilkinson - work overtime to pump some extra life into the self-conscious script. show more

    It's all here: the ingenious, obscenity-laced language, the double crosses that turn into triple crosses, the swaggering characters so in love with themselves. GottaLove RocknRolla! show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The bottom line is, all these people chase the same money around with the success of doggie tail-biting, and it's a lot of fun, and it's not often in these con films that everybody is conning everybody, and they're all scared to death, and nobody knows which cup the pea is under. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Although the characters are all cartoons, Ritchie still invests them with enough personality to make them stand out as real people, which is what makes RocknRolla much more involving than your typical Tarantino ripoff. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    A sharp comedy as well as a punk-pulp spree. Don't go if you can't handle Brit slang. ("Grass" = informer.) show more

    Premiere

    Though the plot has a few too many holes in it, the sheer fun of RockNRolla makes it easy to overlook such quibbles. Butler will make you forget all about "Sparta." show more

    This was one of the worst movies we have ever wasted our time watching. Mind you we only got 20 minutes into it before turning it off.

    Loved it. Vastly entertaining, lots of action, and strong plot. Witty humor with mild violence and great dialogue.

    I thought it was GREAT! The humor was off beat but well suited for this type of movie. It reminds me of Get Shorty or Be Cool in many ways. Highly recommend

    For a mob guy movie...it actually held my attention! Gerard Butler made it so damn funny, go figure? Hope there is a sequel.

    The only thing I hate about British movies is...well, they're British. Their humor leaves much to be desired and the logic of this movie still escapes me. Ritchie will never be another Tarrentino or Rodriegues.

    This movie will be worth seeing just because it's got Gerard Butler in it. He can do it all. Phantom of the Opera, 300, PS I Love You, Timeline, TombRaider II. Whether it is action, epic, or romance. The man is an acting genius!! He ain't to bad to look at either!!!!
