rocknrollaI tried to write a recap of the story but gave up. After all, why bother trying to sort out who did what to whom when director Guy Ritchieā€™s script should be the last thing on anyoneā€™s mind. Suffice it to say that itā€™s a tale about London gangsters who try to put one over on each other, as well as a Russian real estate developer. Ritchie allegedly intended to make this film the first chapter of a new franchise; if youā€™ve seenĀ Lock, Stock and Two Smoking BarrelsĀ (1998), you know what to expect. Visually arresting, and Tom Wilkinson is terrific as a thug who thinks too highly of himself.

2008-U.S.-Britain. 114 min. Color. Widescreen.Ā Written and directed byĀ Guy Ritchie.Ā Cast:Ā Gerard Butler (One Two), Tom Wilkinson (Lenny Cole), Thandiwe Newton (Stella), Mark Strong, Idris Elba, Tom Hardyā€¦ Jeremy Piven, Chris ā€œLudacrisā€ Bridges.

Quote:Ā ā€œThereā€™s no school like old school, and Iā€™m the fucking headmaster.ā€ (Wilkinson)
