Amazingly bad
16 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

I understand this is an early Rock opera but the director who made it is strictly out of the amateur hour. The shots, the editing, the lack of continuity and the script? Puh-lease! There is no script for this deck. I can't believe I wasted the few minutes I did on this poorly produced and directed drivel. If you want to see a good Rock Opera, please watch "Tommy" and skip this crime against culture.
