Queen City Rocker will rock people
22 October 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

The Kiwis mostly make good films, with few exceptions. Queen City Rocker happens to be one of them. To be perfectly frank, when first viewing it, I had no idea this was a Kiwi flick. The story concerning, a very anger driven guy, his character is an open book, I guess is part criminal, part crusader. He's a garbo, and runs a slick theft while on his rounds, along with his best friends, I thought was cool. When not working, to fight boredom, him and his friends engage in more criminal activity, while causing other s..t. This guy is really angry at the world and his injustice. His sister is a high class escort, run by a crime mob, which really peeves little brother, part of it being jealously, and you do get a look at some nice lovelies in gaudy attire. Her and little brother out of this go nowhere life, and when he clashes with the bad dudes, it does cost, fatally for one, from whence, there's a violent retaliation, towards it's climax. QCR is definitely aimed at teens who will enjoy this angst driven drama, where it's like The Warriors meeting Tuff Turf a little, it's lead rebel, definitely a character of arrested focus, and that goes for the actors performance too. There are some great pumping rock tracks too, in this colourful and hard fisted action pic, pulsing with much angry energy.
