  • The script for RocknRolla was written by English film director and screenwriter Guy Ritchie. Edit

  • People ask the question what's a RocknRolla? And I'll tell 'em it's not about drums, drugs, and hospital drips, oh no. There's more there than that, my friend. We all like a bit of the good life - some the money, some the drugs, others the sex game, the glamour, or the fame. But a RocknRolla, oh, he's different. Why? Because a real RocknRolla wants the fucking lot. -Archy (Mark Strong) Edit

  • As Archy tells Johnny Quid (Toby Kebbell): "It cost a very wealthy Russian an arm and a leg." This implies he had Uri killed. Edit

  • Tank (Nonso Anozie) meets Archy at Lenny (Tom Wilkinson)'s office and tells him, "I have a bit of news about your painting." Cut to a scene of Lenny interrogating two men. Edit

  • Handsome Bob (Tom Hardy) met Stella's husband at her party and he agreed to go out with him if he could get Bob the file. In another scene Bob, is on the phone with Stella's husband and he tells Bob where to pick up the file. He and Mumbles (Idris Elba) pick it up, call One Two (Gerard Butler) and arrange to meet at his place where Archy is waiting. Edit

  • Tank calls him and tells him "first I find your painting, now I find out who's been taking Lenny's money". Edit

  • In the scene after Lenny shoots Johnny, Archy takes the file from Bob and reads from it. He tells Lenny, "but I've seen this name many times over the last 20 years and I always wondered...", and then it goes to a flashback of Archy in Lenny's office looking at a piece of paper and asking, "...who is this Sydney Shaw, Len?" Lenny snatches the paper away from him and tells him, "nothing to do with you". It's obvious Sydney Shaw was Lenny's alias and Archy being so close to Lenny knew he used that name. Edit

  • When Archy goes to pick up Lenny's two million from the Spealer, he says in his narration, "the Wild Bunch have had to put a little extra money on top to ignite Lenny's contacts and maybe, just maybe, Lenny's magic wand can make Bob's legal paperwork mysteriously disappear". Cut to the scene where Bob surprises One Two at Spealer, Archy calls him and tells him, "someone lose a bit of paperwork did they, One Two? Yeah well next time you remember that's exactly why you pay Lenny, understood?" Edit

  • "Rock and Roll Queen" by The Subways. The song used in the later trailer is "I'm a Man" by Black Strobe. Edit

  • Archy says, "You'll never sing the same if your teeth ain't your own." Edit

  • Possibly. At the end of the film, there is a title card stating, "Johnny, Archy and the Wild Bunch will be back in The Real RocknRolla", and Thandie Newton (Stella) has been quoted in MTV Movies Blog as saying, "RocknRolla is one of three films and Guy's keen to get going on that straightaway." The working title for the third movie is Rocknrolla Suicide and, according to Ritchie, would bring the characters to America. Edit

  • It is implied that they are both killed. Stella is probably killed by Uri's assistant Victor after Uri see that she has his painting. Her death isn't shown on screen, but is implied when Victor asks for his gloves on his way in. Uri's death is implied when Archy tells Johnny that the painting "cost a very wealthy Russian an arm and a leg." Both deaths are implied, but neither are confirmed. Perhaps it will be explained in The Real Rocknrolla. Edit
