Storyline

A young rock band, half from England and half from the US, drop out of college and move to the Sunset Strip to chase their dreams. Living in a van, their passion and talent exceed their means to survive. An enigmatic stranger sees their true potential and emotionally manipulates them during a time of weakness. Caught in the middle of a Faustian deal, their music and controversial altercations end up influencing society beyond anything this century has seen, but can they take back control of their destiny before it's too late?

The songs are one of the best i'v ever heard,, the movie though is not that good ... the last couple of minutes had a meaningful message but then Nope.
21 January 2018 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

I have been watching movie "like really watching movies" for the past two decades ,, this is without a blink of an eye is one of the worst movies i'v seen ,,, my point is ,, this should have not been built as a movie in the first place ,, it should have been like an Album of really really good songs "bravo" and i would almost be 100% certain it would be a success ,, but this , the movie , i think was a mistake.

The plot is just scattered all over the place ,, they show band before success and fame , then some flashback, then there's this guy who tells them to dream and hope ,and if they want fame they have to make a deal or a blood contract ,, honestly i don't know ,, i mean i just was lost .

As for the cast it was at most "Meh" i mean forget the bad acting by the band,, and then bringing "Sam" from game of thrones, because he probably was the cheapest they could afford ,, but "Denise Richards" as the mom of the lead singer ,, OMG ,, i just laughed so hard-.

so basically to summarize the movie in one word,, "conflicting",, amazing songs and bad movie or lets call it bad song clip !!

Final thought,, I don't know if this is really how Metal bands live,, I don't think so ,, maybe back in the 60's ,, but now i think it's all a business So my last advice ,,,, just find something better to watch, because i guarantee anything you'll watch would be better.
