A lot of fun...
1 August 2012 | by darrelhighamSee all my reviews

I'm giving this a 10/10! I've known about this film for years and years but tonight decided to put on the DVD and have a watch. As a huge fan of early British Rock 'n' Roll I found the actual clips of the bands performing their songs to be quite excellent - much better than I expected - and therefore the whole experience was quite enjoyable. Jackie Collins was superb! I can't quite say the same for all the acting that went on, but at under 1 hour in length there isn't a whole lot to complain about. I love the music of Tony Crombie and Art Baxter so it was quite a thrill to watch them performing classic songs like Rock You Sinners and Brighton Rock. Marvellous stuff!
