Ritchie concocts a crime-jungle demimonde that's organically linked to the real world, and it's a damn fun one to visit.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
It's all here: the ingenious, obscenity-laced language, the double crosses that turn into triple crosses, the swaggering characters so in love with themselves. GottaLove RocknRolla!

Miami Herald

By Rene Rodriguez
Although the characters are all cartoons, Ritchie still invests them with enough personality to make them stand out as real people, which is what makes RocknRolla much more involving than your typical Tarantino ripoff.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
The bottom line is, all these people chase the same money around with the success of doggie tail-biting, and it's a lot of fun, and it's not often in these con films that everybody is conning everybody, and they're all scared to death, and nobody knows which cup the pea is under.

Boston Globe

It's fun to see Tom Wilkinson, for instance, with a massive bald spot virtually eating scenery with a knife and fork.

RocknRolla is a kickass crime drama that just doesn't know to quit while it's ahead.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
A well-acted and attitudinal action movie, a return to Ritchie's trademark "Mockney" style, which takes amusing and twisted turns.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
On the plus side, the actors - especially Butler and Wilkinson - work overtime to pump some extra life into the self-conscious script.

If only RocknRolla's characters were at all believable - even in the context of its own cartoon universe.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
RocknRolla attempts to depict a world of ever-expanding chaos. But the chaos is only in the way the story is told. The actual vision Ritchie offers is pedestrian and tame.
