The birth of blues legend turned rock & roll pioneer studio Chess Records (the film's title begets a typically sinister twist), told with rushed, yet confident, biopic gusto and fantastic tunes galore.

So-so movie but great cars, guitars and music so worth a watch.

Cadillac Records [US, 2008] Something blues and rock n roll fans will find hard to hate. 6/10

Some rough moments in this one, but it covers a time period and music scene that I was quite interested in learning more about...

A drama / music movie with the great actor Adrien Brody. He did an incredible role with the "Pianist" so i had to see what he could achieve in this flick and the result did not let me down. Good performance once again and so did the other cast members. This is a true story based movie about the rise of Cadillac Records in Chicago back in the 50s'. Blues / Rock N Roll with famous Chuck Berry and many other ones which im not quite familiar with. Im not really into this kind of music actually but i found it very enjoyable like i did with "Walk The Line". Overall a well made movie and nice to see and learn more of the music industry when the big boys had their hits.

Well, until now my knowledge of Muddy Waters and Etta James was very limited and now I know a lot more so this film did it's job. Not a bad film, not really my type of music but I enjoyed the film nonetheless.

It's not terrible. Strong performances, but the story is more like a collection of sound bites with no real dramatic push. You can't deny the music however.

The cast was great in this. Some true stories are horribly sad and this is one of them.
