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?

Wow, so bad it should be on Youtube
2 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This had potential, good cast, good idea - could have been great. But first the script utterly sucked, one expects a powerful and elegant monologue from Satan himself, instead he comes across as a grumpy old man and basically a dull sterotype. Next, the story telling was jumpy and badly edited - just didnt flow or hold your interest after the first 20 mins and the band tried so hard to be cool and riotous that they felt more like the Spice Girls reincarnated. How you can have a bunch of good actors and get such poor and woody performances from them is beyond me - I guess ultimately the director let everybody down as the raw materials had promise but the result was a dull trope which oscillates between cringe-worthy and boring.
