RocknRolla

PhotobucketPhotobucketConfusing British crime film about a Russian mobster who arranges a lucrative real estate scam with a high ranking crime boss. Assorted thugs from London’s underworld all want in on the action. Sluggish pacing and stock characters abound. There is no wit or joy. Just a lot of hipster posturing, fast cutting, and camera tricks. Stylistically, very much a companion piece to Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch but nowhere near as good.
