Surprisingly good
1 March 2019 | by beardotheweirdoSee all my reviews

It's not a high-budget film, and it shows this at times, but that's to be expected of a film like this. The cast is surprisingly large for a film like this, and really, all the characters are interesting.

What's not usually expected of these types of films is really well-fleshed out characters, and a good honest, thought-provoking, inspiring story. And Varsity Punks delivers on those fronts, with great success.

The title is slightly misleading as their is only one punk-rocker in the movie. And apart from his attitude, and a misfits patch on his jacket, the movie doesn't have much of anything to do with punk.

If you value good character studies and/or a good story over high-production values (with simplistic or unrealistic/hollow stories and characters, then I'd recommend checking it out.
