The Rickenbacker 330 guitars played by Stephen MacKenna as John Lennon are actually Japanese-made copies. The headstocks are longer than a real Rickenbacker and the pickups and tailpieces differ. See more »
The guitars played by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison in the early scenes are incorrect. Respectively, they are seen holding a Harmony Stratotone Jupiter, a Fender Stratocaster copy, and an '60's Ibanez respectively. In reality, Lennon played a Rickenbacker 325, McCartney an Italian-made Rosati, and Harrison a Czech-made Futurama. See more »
70's cars everywhere and inaccuracies! That's what comes to my mind when I think about this movie. Everything feels rushed, like they didn't have the time to find the correct guitars, the correct sets, the correct backgrounds. And they didn't have the time to tell the story correctly either. Scenes jump from one to another without any sense of segue. For any knowledgeable fan of the Beatles, it feels simplified to the extreme.
But on the other hand, the actors playing John, Paul, George and Ringo are good (Paul is often on the verge of overacting though) and they got the voices down! You could listen to the movie without watching it and you would be able to tell who is speaking! It's still a fun movie to watch, even if it's only to pick up flaws and inaccuracies!
