Wondering If You Should Go See Guy Ritchie’s New Movie?

posted by on November 3 at 13:18 PM


Paul Constant doesn’t think so:

The biggest travesty of RocknRolla requires me to spoil the ending. Ready? THERE IS NO ENDING. The film actually ends with a promise that the story will continue in a sequel, called The Real RocknRolla, and Ritchie has declared these films to be a trilogy in the making…It takes real balls to announce a sequel to a movie at the end of a comeback movie, and it takes a heroic act of imagination to believe anybody besides Ritchie actually gives a shit about these characters. If the universe is a good and just place, the proposed trilogy will be aborted with the swift and decisive failure of this awful, awful movie at the box office.

Sounds a lot like Remo Williams.

But ... Gerard Butler's in it! Gerard "The Comely Caledonian" Butler! Quite possibly the most handsome man to come from the British Isles since Clive Owen!

i thought it was too slow and not as good as snatch or lock stock 2 smoking barrels. its hard when you use the same movie formula over and over again.

it also features thandie newton, who i have had a moviestar crush on since the film "Flirting."

Speaking as someone who loves Snatch and enjoyed Lock Stock and is compelled to watch movies all the way through:

I left this movie halfway through (at least I think it was halfway through). And this was after paying freaking 12 Euro at a movie theatre in Dublin.

The clever jokes were rehashes of jokes from previous Guy Ritchie films, and the new jokes weren't funny. The characters weren't just unlikeable but also uninteresting (in addition to being rehashes of characters from previous films). Ugh.
