True Vinyl review
7 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only reason why I watched this movie was because of Eric Szmanda of CSI. The movie itself was not the greatest, and viewers pretty know how the movie is going to end within 30 minutes of watching the film. However, I think the film is still above average because of the awesome music played throughout the film. The dance music featured during the rave at the barn and the DJ competition was great, and I wish a soundtrack was available.

The actors did an average job given the script they had to work with. Eric did a nice job with his character, Billy Thompson, but there were times when his character was a little too cheesy (i.e., dancing with Maya). However, Eric Szmanda fans (and I am one of them) should enjoy the movie with Eric being the lead character of the film. I think my favorite character from the movie was Night Owl, Billy's roommate during the DJ competition. He was hilarious and provided genuine comic relief to the film.

The movie itself was above average due to the fabulous dance music. Unfortunately, the cheesy dialogue and the predictable plot and ending keep the movie from being truly great.
