** [[spoiler:Lenny]]
[[spoiler:Lenny. Pissing off [[RuthlessForeignGangsters Uri]] got him crippled for life via NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, and forced to drag himself a half mile or so to get help, to add insult to injury.

She was a TooDumbtoLive SmugSnake that got in [[KilledOffForReal fatal]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath trouble]] the moment she did a move that she couldn't seduce her way out of, and only managed to pull a "PlayingBothSides" for so long because Uri was attracted to her.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RuthlessForeignGangsters: TheMafiya, in all of its brutal, leg-smashing glory--[[spoiler:which [[LondonGangster Lenny]] learned the hard way when he got said legs broken (putting him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life) and was forced to drag himself from the 18th hole of a golf course all the way to the visitor's centre to get help (adding a hell of a lot of insult to injury) because he antagonized Uri when he was still a bit pissed about having had his painting stolen.]]

Lenny Cole is a powerful underworld figure, who, through an immense web of bribery, controls most of the land deals in London. A Russian businessman by the name of Uri seeks his services in procuring the permits to build a new stadium, which would take nearly a decade otherwise. However, their mutual accountant, Stella, is plotting to rip both of them off. With the aid of a trio of local hoodlums known as "The Wild Bunch" -- One-Two, Mumbles, and Handsome Bob -- she twice steals the seven million Euros intended for Lenny's payoff. The first time goes off without a hitch. The second time doesn't quite go as planned. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity]] (and [[SoCoolItsAwesome awesomeness]]) [[HilarityEnsues ensues]].

In the midst of it all is a (presumably rare and valuable) painting that holds sentimental value for Uri. It is stolen by Lenny's estranged son, Johnny Quid (the eponymous [=RocknRolla=]), and both of their respective [[TheDragon Dragons]] (Victor for Uri; Archy, TheNarrator, for Lenny) are following a trail of junkies and hustlers in order to find it.

** Justified in that the Wild Bunch were using rock-salt shells, and the Russians were wearing bulletproof vests. After One-Two hits one in the head with a two-by-four, he backs off.
