Director: Guy Ritchie | Stars: Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, Idris Elba, Thandie Newton

Archy (Mark Strong) narrates the story of Mr. One Two (Gerard Butler) who wants to buy some sort of place. Along with him is Mumbles (Idris Elba) and Handsome Bob (Tom Hardy). They will have to go to see The Councillor (Jimi Mistry) and get the plan, then going around to inform the owner of the land – Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson).

But everyone’s connected. So when Lenny says that he doesn’t want to give it to the newcomers. The Councillor has to decline Mr. One Two and he will end up without having the “planning”. Without it, Lenny could easily manipulate The Wild Bunch (Mr.One Two, Mumbles and Handsome Bob). Easily being tricked, Lenny gave Mr. One Two some time to pay back the amount of money of the same price of the building they wanna purchase. And it’s bad.

In the eventual moments, Yuri Omovich (Karel Roden) is a Russian business mogul plans to buy some lands in London which interest him to build an empire, so he came to see Lenny. Because of bringing in money and washing them require lots of taxes even when purchasing a building, so the only way is Lenny. But both sides doesn’t really trust each other.

They tried to settle a deal. Yuri then turns over his lucky painting which he presumes that it has always given him luck and power and wants Lenny to have the picture but return to him when the deal is perfectly done.

Yuri then asks his accountant, Stella (Thandie Newton), to transfer the money to Lenny, but things quickly go awry when a band of thieves known as the The Wild Bunch consisting of One Two and Mumbles —intercept the money before it reaches him (at the behest of Stella).

However, one day Lenny lost the painting. It was stolen from his room which he refers hanging behind his desktop while answering a call from Yuri.

The scene cuts to a mascular yet a boy who is listening to The Clash music and sucking a bong. It was Lenny’s estranged son who is presumably dead and crack-addicted rockstar Johnny Quid (Jamie Campbell Bower).

In an attempt to find Johnny, Lenny and Archy enlist his former record producers Mickey (Ludacris) and Roman (Piven) to track him down or else their concerts and clubs will be shut down. Meanwhile, Handsome Bob (Hardy) is distraught on the night before his court case, he’s scheduled to do a five year prison stretch. One Two organizes a party for Bob.

On the way to the party, One Two tries to cheer Bob up to no avail. Bob then comes out to One Two, admitting to having a crush on One Two. One Two is disgusted, but thinking that it’s Bob’s last night as a free man, asks him what exactly he’d like to do. The next day, One Two refuses to attend Bob’s court hearing to the surprise of Mumble. One Two uncomfortably tries to explain that something happened between him and Bob the previous night, when Mumbles tells him that everyone knows that Bob is gay.

When One Two, Mumbles, and Bob try to steal the second load of Yuri’s money they are wounded and chased by Yuri’s persistent hired mercenaries who engage them in a shootout and a lengthy foot chase. They nevertheless deliver the money to Stella as they did before. By this time Yuri has grown impatient and has Lenny viciously beaten, demanding that the painting be returned and the money delivered.

Two item peddling junkies manage to steal the painting from Johnny and sell it to the Wild Bunch, which is given to One Two who gifts it to Stella after they have sex. Mickey and Roman find Johnny and call Archy to have him delivered. After capturing the three, Archy and Lenny’s men go to apprehend One Two who is already in the hands of Yuri’s vengeful mercenaries. Archy and his men kill the mercenaries and kidnap One Two as well as Mumbles and Handsome Bob who arrived to deliver the name of the talked about police informant inside the London underworld.

Yuri arrives at Stella’s house to seal their arrangements while also asking her to marry him, as he has been smitten with her for a long time. Immediately after, Yuri spots his lucky painting in Stella’s living room. After being asked how long she’s had it, Stella says she’s had it for years, not knowing it’s actually Yuri’s. Feeling betrayed and enraged, Yuri orders his associate inside to kill Stella.

Meanwhile, Archy brings Johnny, the Wild Bunch, Mickey, and Roman to Lenny’s warehouse where Johnny begins to verbally provoke Lenny. Lenny then shoots Johnny in the stomach before he finishes telling Archy that Lenny is the rat. Lenny then orders Johnny, Roman, and Mickey escorted downstairs while demanding that the Wild Bunch to tell him where the money is. Handsome Bob offers Archy the documents in his jacket pocket which reveals the informant, code named “Sidney Shaw,” to be Lenny. Lenny had arranged with the police to give up many of his associates for prison at any given time in exchange for his freedom. One Two, Mumbles, and Archy himself are among the people Lenny has ratted out over the years. With this new information brought to light, Archy frees the Wild Bunch and kills Lenny.

In the meantime, Johnny informs Mickey and Roman how they will be executed prompting Lenny’s men to act prematurely. Mickey and Roman intervene and kill the men and Johnny kills two more guards waiting outside the lift. The Wild Bunch save them from the last remaining henchman (One-Two knocks him out from behind) and they all escape.

Some time later, Archy picks up a rehabilitated but still eccentric Johnny Quid from the hospital. Archy offers Yuri’s lucky painting to Johnny as a peace offering and “welcome home present,” which Johnny accepts. Archy reveals to Johnny that obtaining the painting “cost a very wealthy Russian an arm and a leg.” The film closes with Johnny proclaiming that with his new freedom, he will do what he couldn’t do before: “become a real RocknRolla”. During the end credits, it is revealed that One Two and Bob had danced together on the night before Bob’s court hearing.
