Someone once told me that all Guy Ritchie movies are the same. I could neither negate nor accept it since Snatch is the only other movie of his that I have seen. Lenny (Wilkinson) is a real estate mafia lord, whom you cant bypass if you need property in London. Archie (Strong) is his right-hand man, who has remained faithful to him for years. When Uri (Roden) approaches Lenny for a settlement, he offers Lenny his lucky painting to have for a few weeks. The 'lucky painting' one day disappears, and not just that. Uri's accountant Stella (Newton) is double-crossing him by stealing the money that Uri is supposed to pay Lenny. Within all this mess get involved One Two (Butler) and his gang called The Wild Bunch, Lenny's rock star step-son Johnny (Kebbell) who is supposedly dead and Johnny's record producer Mickey (Bridges) just to mention a few. After watching this movie, I seem to agree with the statement made earlier. Replace diamond from Snatch with real estate, and you get RocknRolla. All that said, its still a very entertaining watch. The dialogues and curses in this movie are unimaginable and might just add a few words here and there to your explicit vocabulary. Acting and screenplay are quite typical to the producers style. The twist revealed in the end had no actual link to the story narrated, which was a bit off-track.

Rating: 7.8/10
