Screen-Space

[Fletcher's] adaptation of the hit stage play is to Scottish audiences as Mamma Mia! is to The Me Generation and and Rock of Ages is to Gen X-ers - a bigscreen jukebox jam very loosely held together by a hoary plotline as old as cinema itself.

Despite the low-budget-defying gloss (Edinburgh really does look fabulous), the gritty honesty of the Reid brothers' songs remains intact and the superb cast give their stirring singalong anthems real emotional clout.

I shed a tear within the first 10 minutes, and spent the rest of the movie beaming like a gibbering, love-struck fool.

As the drama builds up to I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) you'll know exactly what's coming, but will be swept along regardless by what is surely one of the greatest pop songs ever written.

This is London

Fletcher's faux-rootsy, unoriginal crowd-pleaser keeps insisting that we see it as a ray of sunshine. It didn't work for me, but Mullan provides one hell of a silver lining.

We'd say it was a Celtic Umbrellas of Cherbourg. But they didn't have headbutts or anything like as much fun in that film.

A far cry from the likes of Rock of Ages and Mamma Mia!, and worth seeing for Mullan's Tom Waits-channelling alone.

Like The Proclaimers' best known song the picture starts slowly but builds to a joyous conclusion that will convince you to jump on the next train to Scotland and expect glorious sunshine.

The singalong, turned into a musical for stage and now screen, is better than one feared or hoped.

What makes it work are the performers, particularly Mullan and Horrocks, who give it their considerable all.
