Mini-Review: RocknRolla

Directed by Guy Ritchie
Released October 8, 2008

The latest entry from the man who made “Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch” is easily one of the most entertaining movies of the year. A truly stellar ensemble paired with a sharp script makes for an entirely terrific film. It’s a wonderful, seamless blend of uproarious comedy and violent action. Gerard Butler proves that he has infinitely more talent than it might have seemed from his leading role in “300.” Thandie Newton, Tom Wilkinson, and especially the incredible Mark Strong (so good in “Body of Lies” this year too) provide terrific support and stand out among an awesome ensemble cast. This is a nonstop thrill ride of laughter and excitement that is unlike any other movie from this year.
