It remains one of the most wrenching films about adolescent angst, thanks largely to the performance of Phil Daniels.

Sting, as the weekend super-Mod whose image collapses when he's revealed to work as a bellhop, cuts a slick dash in the dancehall sequences.
75
Plays more like a gritty, episodic British independent film powered by a soundtrack of Who songs that illuminate the main character's turbulent emotions.

Christian Science Monitor
Roddam's minor but imaginative 1979 movie.
70
This ode to wrestling one's way out of youth's shell holds up surprisingly well.

New Times (L.A.)
As a document of rockin, youth rebellion, the film lodges perfectly between "American Graffiti" and "Trainspotting."
