The FALL of The Clash
14 July 2014 | by noelle-ewenSee all my reviews

MrHooba used the exact title I was going to use for my review!

This really should have been called The FALL of the Clash, as there was NOTHING in the film to tell me anything about their early history!

How did they meet? How did they hire their manager? What was their back story?

I enjoyed what I did see, but I felt like the film started halfway through! I kept waiting for them to go back and start at the beginning and they just never did, it was very frustrating.

I learned quite a bit that I hadnt known before, and enjoyed the footage, but the film was really focused on the discord, and not much else.

The film is worth watching, but I think they should change the title as it is very misleading
