A RocknRolla in Tower Hill

RocknRolla was filmed in part here, well one jaw-dropping scene

Location: Corner of Crutched Friar & Coopers Row, EC3N

Description: 'RocknRolla' is a 2008 British crime film written and directed by Guy Ritchie, and starring Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, Mark Strong, Toby Kebbell, Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Karel Roden, and Thandie Newton.

Lenny Cole, a London mob boss, puts the bite on all local real estate transactions. For substantial fees, he's helping Uri Omovich, a Russian developer. As a sign of good faith, Omovich loans Cole a valuable painting, promptly stolen off Cole's wall.

While Cole's men, led by the dependable Archie, look for the canvas, three local petty criminals, the Wild Bunch, steal money from the Russian using inside information from his accountant, the lovely Stella.

Meanwhile, a local drug-addled rocker, Johnny Quid, is reported drowned, and his connection to Cole is the key to unraveling the deceits and double crosses of life in the underworld.

And so to this location...this is where Johnny Quid is seen on CCTV beating up a bouncer, under the noses of the very two people trying to find him.

A pretty nasty scene nut a gem of a film.
