I fell in love with this movie at the start, simply from the concept of Soviet teenagers undertaking an underground rock band in the late '50s. This aspect of the film was particularly well done, especially the musician's early attempts to learn this foreign music. Unfortunately, the political and romantic sub-plots lacked punch and direction; and I found the ending to be unrealistic and devoid of any bite. Excellent watch if you love the early roots of rock 'n roll; otherwise, skip it.
"Red Hot" is a film that excels in almost every way in realistically
portraying the life of a Russian teenager introduced to American culture,
and how it affects others around him. It is truly one of the most
well-written films I have seen in a long time, and it definitely has a place
on my personal Top 50 list. Considering how many films I have seen, it is
remarkable that it places even nearly that high. The love story behind it
all clicks together with ease, as does the plotline involving music. I can
easily relate my own personal experiences to those of Alexi, the main
character, excepting the ending sequences (without giving too much
Overall, "Red Hot" is a terrific film, and the only place where it suffers is the fact that virtually nobody I know has seen it.
What a great movie! I only hope more people have the chance to see it. I purchased "Red Hot" without knowing what to expect, and very much enjoyed it. The music itself is wonderful and makes the movie great, but the storyline and the acting is also extremely well-done. See it and you won't regret it.
I watched this film a couple years back and enjoyed it very much. Its nothing spectacular but if your looking for a light, sentimental watch Red Hot is a movie for you. Great acting, nice setting and an overall interesting plot.
