Review of film: “RocknRolla” -- The WHOLE-A CRIME-IN-OLA

Review of film:    ROCKnROLLA --  The WHOLE-A CRIME-IN-OLA  =   
                    [ Rating:  7.5 of 10 stars ]
Date Rated: Oct 24, 2008 | Rel. Date: Oct 8, 2008
[ Based on an advance preview:]  This latest Guy Ritchie film is a STYLISH caper exploration of various levels of crime in England— from the low-level punks and druggies to the high-level white-collar deceivers, to the Super Rich and their toadies...

 TOM WILKINSON plays a well-connected “fixer” for the rich and up-and-comers, and he’s never afraid to use influence and violent toughs (like MARK STRONG) to enforce what he wants (including from a family member, played by TOBY KEBBELL)...

...  His plans to help a rich Russian are often foiled by disgruntled criminals (like GERARD BUTLER, IDRIS ELBA & TOM HARDY) and by seemingly high-level people like THANDIE NEWTON (who may or may not be a double-dealer)...

...  This film gathers together a very involved, complex, and periodically confusing interweaving of goals and actions (both serious & humorous), and you may have trouble understanding some of them (& certain dialogue used). But, while the film isn’t great, it’s a generally “FUN” ride.
