Was it really that bad?
13 December 2005 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

Along with the other comment here, I've heard another bad comment on this movie -from a member of the rock band featured in the film. I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion.

My problem is that I have a more or less good memory of that movie. I mean, I remember that I was very interested in it, I thought it was a good movie and spend years trying to find out some more about it.

Well, I was a kid when I saw it and that may have something to do with my positive evaluation of the film. Plus, the Cro Mags played there and that is definitively a plus! Anyway, I wouldn't go so far as to recommend it, but if you find it some late night in some cable station, give it a try. I want to see it again myself and see if I'm so wrong.
