Here I finally sit forcing myself to write only because I enjoyed Guy Ritchie’s new movie RocknRolla so much! A little rusty and I saw the movie about a month ago, so bear with me.

You may remember his other films Lock, Stock and two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, both enjoyable but somewhat flimsy models of what cool is (Brad Pitt was the best part of Snatch). For every great portion or moment there was an equally awkward and heavy handed moment that showed Ritchie to be a purveyor of style but lacked the true tools to tell a completely engaging story. I haven’t even found the time to watch his complete misfires Revolver or Swept Away. Alas, I am here to proclaim to you that RocknRolla may simply be one of the most enjoyable movies I’ll see this year.
