Rock N Rolla
               Genre: Comedy, Action, Crime
  The illegal drug business is from yesterday, because today we speculated in London, with homes and their licenses. This has been recognized not only Lenny Cole, old-school mob boss, but his opponent, the Russian billionaire Uri Obomavich. But what would the Great without the kids? That’s why the trio The Wild Bunch cheerfully mixes with stripes in the action and gets quickly between the two fronts.

The capital city on the Thames has become a hot bed, the aging of the wire-puller of the underworld Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson) is controlled. However, does its dirty work, the right-hand man Archy (Mark Strong), Lenny so that the fingers need not do dirty. In his final deal he comes with the Russians Obomavich Uri (Karel Roden) into the business, who wants to pay a few million for the concession of his gigantic stadium. Uri is one of the so-called new school in gangster circles, fills his English business partner with whiskey instead of vodka and makes him kindly lent his fortune image available. But not only that the image is suddenly out of Lenny’s possession is stolen, but the little crooks and cheaters One Two (Gerard Butler), the leader of the Chaos Force The Wild Bunch, gets a tip of the beautiful and supercooled accountant Stella (Thandie Newton) from the transfer of bribes wind. With the help of his best friend and accomplice Mumbles (Idris Elba), he robs from the armored car, and is richer by a few million. Well, not really, because with the stolen money, he is now the debt that he and at Mumbles Lenny pay. Everything starts from scratch: new armored car, a new assault, and in between Archy looking feverishly for the missing photo of Uri.

What’s all this got to do with rock and roll? Very much, because it turns out, crime boss Lenny has a stepson Johnny Quid (Toby Kebbell), Junkie and punk rock star. He is somehow associated with the images of prey, has been declared by the media, however, dead. Live longer based on the motto “dead” the culmination of the search for money, good luck and rock star image in breathless chases, in which much blood flowing, martial muscles are visible and occasionally there is still a little time for sex. For the third in the league of The Wild Bunch, Handsome Bob (Tom Hardy), One Two explained that he was gay, so this does not get along at first, but then enters a curious interlude, and the accountant vernascht One Two in double quick time . Or him? Anyway, the end credits of the film promises that the chaos troops will enter The Wild Bunch soon reappear, and we can look forward to the next bizarre adventures of One Two, Mumbles and Handsome Bob in The Real RocknRolla, the planned sequel to this film.

Guy Ritchie can crack it again properly. The formats of a Quentin Tarantino, there are a lot of action, blood and violence by presenting the same rapid pace, and many scenes cut sequence an MTV clip. Moreover, the whole thing with a generous helping of black humor and cool music is completed, it is guaranteed that the gangster fun. Unfortunately, Guy Ritchie was so far from many critics for his latest action comedy, as always, the comparison with his film debut jack, queen, king, shall be used Barrels. British director achieved by 1998 in cinematic breakthrough, and the strip is still regarded as a cult film, which of course makes it difficult to oppose, this somewhat. However, Ritchie has done his work clean, excellent, the actors chosen, the tempo is rousing, the characters quirky and there are many hilarious scenes in Rock N Rolla. For example, the act of love between Stella and One Two, which takes in its entirety, probably only fifteen seconds, Ritchie daumenkinogleich Copulation has summarized the highlights of this fast motion. The prefix, there is an incredibly funny dance scene between the accountant and the chaos is always bored hoodlums, reminiscent of Grease, only that the two absolutely can not dance, of course, will not. The numerous chases the two Russian warplanes, which are neither of live ammunition, not only can be very discouraging fists, a roar funny, and loudmouth One Two has so many times in the cold.
The only criticism is the first somewhat confusing history and the many characters whose connections to each other and educate themselves only after some time. However, the Gutelaunefaktor of the film is extremely high, and it should be remembered that a director can not do with each production a new cult film.
