You'll forget this movie the moment it ends.
17 March 2008 | by fedor8See all my reviews

If you're expecting something clever and hilarious like Spinal Tap or Bad News, you'll be sorely disappointed. LM is a missed chance to have some fun with the extremely silly black metal genre. The script is almost devoid of laughs; whether this is due to shoddy improvising or uninspired writing, I don't know (and don't care). It's rather pathetic that these guys chose a very EASY target to parody and yet managed to almost totally fail. What would they do with a subject that is difficult to spoof?

LM basically has a one-joke premise: we're supposed to continually laugh at the fact that the two black metal clowns wear their "evil" make-up all the time, even in rural settings while giving interviews. The only part of the movie that was passable were the scenes in the recording studio. However, when one considers what opportunities for gags the recording of a black metal album offers...

The rather absurd and utterly uninteresting ending doesn't help either. LM ends on an experimental note. And guess what? It wasn't funny at all.

The fact that the entire movie was shot on video doesn't help either. LM looks far too cheap. The acting is okay, and even the characterization isn't bad, but overall LM doesn't work.

Why is the "story" set in 1991/2? Black metal barely existed back then.

Don't look for these guys to make movie classics at any time in the near future.
