Thunder's rolling in his grave in embarrassment
22 May 2019 | by EAA123See all my reviews

There was a opportunity to make a good movie about a rock and roll/punk legend, but instead they made a low rent version of the Shining. At least the actor playing Thunders didn't scream out "Here's Johnny, so he gets the one star!!"
