Concrete Angels is a feel-good film with first-rate music and a fantastic, talented, young cast. It captures the excitement of being on-stage; the anxiety of competition; and the hopes and dreams of countless youth who worshiped the Beatles during the height of their popularity. The fine performances by a mostly unknown cast actually made the film more believable and interesting. Concrete Angels is upbeat, fun and full of life.
In 1964, a group of youths form a group to try and win a competition which has as the prize the chance to support the Beatles in concert. Because the director knows nothing about cinema, this insipid, lifeless and cheerless musical drama has these faults: amateurish performances, charmless characters and a non-script that fills it redundant scenes with long pauses, pointless profanity and dodgy covers, mainly of Beatles songs (including Misery, I Saw Her Standing There, She Loves You, A Hard Day's Night, PS I Love You, Love Me Do and From Me To You). Dismally painful, it even shows footage, on television, of the Fabs in 1965 rather than '64.
