RocknRolla

 

UK 2008, 114 minutes
Dir. Guy Ritchie
Genres: Action/Adventure, Suspense/Crime, Comedy / Gangsters

 

Aroview: Stylephile Guy Ritchie revisits well-trodden territory with this typically tangled crime caper involving a menagerie of seedy opportunists looking to get rich quick off a real estate swindle in London's criminal underworld.

Having assembled a cracking cast of big-mouths, big-wigs and buccaneers (Kebbell especially impressive), Ritchie makes an auspicious beginning before settling into the same old riffs and rhythms, sporadically thrilling the eye with visceral verve but largely relying on tired gangster schtick and dead-end dazzle for kicks. Fans of SNATCH will likely find the low-life lingo and criss-crossing mischief a proper lark, while others might wonder if this sort of carry-on was best left behind a decade ago.
