Stuntrock Movie
25 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rate this a 10 because... This movie does exactly what it sets out to do. As I read some reviews, mostly from people with no movie or TV experience but lots of self-promoting opinions take shots at this film let me try to set them straight. If they can handle it! 1) The Plot is simple: Stuntman Grant Page goes to Hollywood Cal. to work on TV series "Undercover Girl" where he garners the interest of his co-star "Monique Van De Ven" and, a the reporter,played by "Margret Gerard" who is writing a story about people who get TO caught up in the work. In this case stuntman like Grant Page. When Grant arrives in Hollywood, he hooks up with his cousin, played by Curtis Hyde, who plays the devil character in "Sorcery" in the bands stage show.

Their show is a magic based stage show of the battle of good vs. evil. It features some great hard rock music of that era.

The band has some roles in the film and Grant does a good job at what he does,stunts. Keep in mind a few things here. The film is from 1978 and the Director,Brian Trenchard Smith is responsible for all we see and hear as the director and editor usually do. 2) Sorcery did a very good job, as I'm sure they followed the directors suggestions and did what was called for at the time. Note, Sorcery went on to do more records after this "gig" and their other CD's, T.V.appearances, Dick Clark shows and other movies they did can be found on you-tube by searching; "Sorcery TV appearances" you'll find them. They were an excellent band and I for one think they considered this picture just another job. It's OK if some people don't care for this film,I know how many I don't like,but this is for many a good time movie about Rock,Stunts, and the backstage requirements of stuntmen and the movie business from a inside look from Grants perspective as a stuntman. And the contribution over time they make to the overall movie. 3) Summary: I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to be entertained! Forget the wanna-be critics who never did anything that requires talent but love to express their jaded points of view. Last word: Sorcery & Stuntrock are well worth watching and if you have the DVD,you'll watch it more than once.
