Wirth watching, albeit not too surprising.
2 December 2016 | by ronaldboekhoornSee all my reviews

Waterboys. The advantage of having a cinema-subscription is you watch movies you wouldn't normally. This is one of those. I went in without any preconceptions or ideas about what I was going to see, other than the 2nd half of the trailer, as I saw that one time when I came in late for another film.

The story, though not too surprising, is believable, made more so by the okay acting. Some nice advertisement for Edinburgh in this picture as well, but it does fit. The pace of the story is good, and the character-development seems natural. But what really carries this movie is the music.

Of course The Waterboys have a nice repertoire of songs that lend themselves well for this kind of stories, but the correct usage of volume makes it all the more powerful.

All in all, worth watching, not worth an Oscar. ;)
