Not great not as bad as some say
14 September 2014 | by ruminor456See all my reviews

I liked the band, and was eager to see the movie, which nevertheless turned out to be a bit soap-operaish. For a movie that went two parts, I left feeling like the whole story of the band hadn't been told. It was more like here are the big moments, First Big US Tour, Bang! Wembley, Bang! and at times it verged on being the Michael Hutchence Story.

I know the band likes to play it up in their bio books, but I seriously doubt they were stealing Adam Ant's women. I was around for those shows back then, and believe me, for a while he was the biggest chick magnet going. Guess the guys feel compelled to create their own legends. Likewise I was amused at how the band apparently balked at opening for him, kind of arrogant considering they were nobodies then (at least in the U.S) and had a shot to play 5,000 seat arenas instead of 50 seat pubs.

Still, I watched it once, I'd watch it again just for the music. This often replays late nights on cable, and it's a fun watch. Nice touch also including the acoustic "Don't Change" tribute version (if you haven't heard the original which also includes the haunting background vocals give it a listen.)
