Disappointing
28 October 2016 | by stantheman1961See all my reviews

I waited with eager anticipation of this film, I myself have been a MOD for 40+ years and the build up surrounding this film it was being likened to Quadrophenia it was nowhere near

How disappointed i was, the main character 'Dixie'although wearing a Parka and MOD T-Shirt and telling us he was a MOD resembled no genuine MOD i have ever seen scruffy unkempt hair and walking around thru out the whole film with a tatty Tesco shopping Bag

OK to the film the plot was very thin Scruffy Mod comes to big city to manage a band any band don't matter that its not a MOD band again hard to believe

I could not connect with any of the characters there was nothing to them very superficial i couldn't empathise with any of them sorry 4/10 for me
