This movie is a fast-paced, fun, and funny gangster movie! Guy Ritchie wrote and directed this film which stars: Gerald Butler, Thandie Newton, Tom Wilkinson, Mark Strong, Idris Elba, and a riveting young actor named Toby Kebbell. The soundtrack was great, the action fast and furious, and the violence is mostly not graphic--there is actually one scene with some muscular Russians that is quite funny. I enjoyed it very much.

I agree Terry - I thought this was a great film. There are some really funny bits of dialogue too.

Apparently the soundtrack has bits of the narration as well as the music - like the bit at the beginning where they explain what a RocknRolla is.

Yes, and also shown in the juxaposition of the Iggy Pop and Lou Reed songs with the character of Johnny Quid.
And the awkward dance sequence was hilarious!

It is hilarious...which dance sequence are you talking about....the one with Stella and One Two...or Handsome Bob and One Two? Both of them were pretty damn funny... Laughing

With Stella and One Two. Laughing I think. I'll have to get the dvd to re-watch it.
The how-to on slapping someone scene was funny, too. Laughing

I liked the part where Handsome Bob tells One Two how he'd like to spend his last night of freedom. Laughing

Yes, it did, seriously. There's a link to the then live blog in Sean's News, along with a snippet of the acceptance speaches.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE! I don't know a whole lot of folks (offline at least) who have seen this film. A shame really because I think it's just great.

Was a great movie! I love the scene with One Two running away from the mobsters. The cinematography (sp?) was fabulous. One of my favourites from him.

This movie made me a fan of Guy Ritchie which led me to "Snatch," and "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels." I don't know if I would have seen the latest "Sherlock Holmes" either.
