Still a superb movie
26 December 2000 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

Now sadly dated, this movie is STILL one of the best "Rock'n'Roll" movies ever made. The added bonus of seeing that the rockers from the 50s and 60s could act as well as sing made it all the sweeter. Although this was David Essex' starring role, I believe the show was stolen by Adam Faith who gave a completely believable performance as Mike. Lots of excellent music in here, especially the stuff by the Stray Cats (band for the movie). Worth watching 30 or 40 times IF you can find a copy.
