Miscast toxic soulless drivel
19 November 2015 | by darren-153-890810See all my reviews

Lets start with a positive, the soundtrack is absolutely banging. Even the suck my dick tune sounds good in a club a loud.

Unfortunately that's where the positives end. This really is a horrible, horrible, toxic film. It so badly wants to be the Music Industry version of American Psycho but fails miserably. In fact, the film is just one big miserable ball of moribund. It will bring you down and make you want to leave the cinema 20 minutes in.

The main character who looks about 20, lacks any real conviction in almost every scene. He is so badly miscast that at times I thought I was a watching a Friday Night Hollyoaks. He has zero charisma, zero charm and is far to young to be so cynical. He isn't believable on any level.

Patrick Bateman was a beast, but he was a charming beast, he was smooth and delivered his lines with such comedy that you actually kind of liked his character.

There's zero charm in this film. From the opening scene to the final scene. Its like someone has thrown a bowl of sick over you and it will take 90 minutes to dry.

One of the worst films of 2015.

3 out of 10, 2 of those are for the music
