RocknRolla movie poster

Before I begin this review I have a public service announcement: Thandie Newton is HOT! That is all.

So Guy Ritchie who wrote and directed Revolver wrote a new mobster type movie. This one is really good. It’s a story about everyone screwing everyone over in the London underground. Everyone from the Old School guy who owns the town to the lowest of low drug dealers.

The cast is amazing: Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, the aforementioned Thandie Newton, Mark Strong, Jeremy Piven, and Ludacris.

The acting… well okay it could be better. The writing… well it’s no Trainspotting, but I really enjoyed watching this movie.

There will be a sequel and I’ll be first in line to watch “The Real RocknRolla” when it comes out. In fact I’m about to board a plane and I think I’ll watch this movie again.

Like I said earlier though, this is a mobster type movie, lots of swearing, shooting, fights, and the like. If you don’t like that kind of stuff than this isn’t your cup of tea. But it sure is mine.
