A truly underrated movie
27 March 2005 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I have always liked this movie, i feel it is a great debut performance by Chesney Hawkes, who plays Buddy perfectly. The movie captures every young persons dreams of becoming a rock star perfectly, Nigel Hinton in my view did a great job of converting his movie to the screen. The cast throughout is solid especially Rodger Daltry who was amazing in this. He really was believable as a 50's throwback who liked his dodgy dealings on the side. The soundtrack to this is brilliant, the one and only is a pop classic and it also includes some other great songs such as Nothing serious; you have to love the video for it in the car wreckers.
