It was better than OK but not quite good and far from great.
23 March 2019 | by atilajames-686-309540See all my reviews

I've been a Crüe fan from the beginning of their career. I know every single one of their stories. From each member to to the band as a whole. This movie tried its best but unfortunately it cant be done in under 2 hours. It crammed too much into the hour and 45 min and left even more out. Too many of the staple Crüe songs were left out and time skipped forward erratically. If you ever watched interviews of the band in the past you will see right away that the actors do not portray the real artists accurately at all. Go back and watch Motley Crue uncensored and decade of decadence and you will see what I mean. These actors don't know the Crüe.
