Heavy Trip's heartfelt humor and fully realized characters make this a journey well worth taking - and one of the best rock comedies in recent memory.

A cult hit waiting in the wings. Come for the brutal music, stay for the charming DIY optimism.
Remains knowingly true to its quirky quartet and milieu even as the plotting runs off the rails a tad in the third act.
While the film's attempts at slapstick can be painful-in a cringing way, not in a brutal way-Heavy Trip does succeed in creating perhaps the most charming ensemble of morbid dorks since What We Do In The Shadows.
Achieves the status of bonafide crowd-pleaser, for a crowd that isn't normally acknowledged with such detail and warmth.
Part let's-get-it-together band saga and part road movie, the story arc is awfully familiar, but that doesn't stop it being a rollicking romp.
Heavy Trip is an absurdist, powerhouse folly, which feels spunky enough to honor the musical genre and comes filled with deadpan hilarity to please comedy addicts.
Heavy Trip will lure you with great original songs and hilarious gags, but you will stay because of the lovable characters and the sweet story about rebellion and following your dreams.
Heavy Trip ought to appeal to a wider audience than Lords of Chaos, as the bar for entry in terms of prior knowledge (and stomach fortitude) is much lower. It's also just a likeable story.
There's always been a from-the-basement feel to the genre, and everything about the modest dark comedy of Heavy Trip feels entirely faithful to that anarchic spirit.
It's no Metalocalypse (pretty much the only metal comedy to completely break the rules), and there are no new classic anthems here, but if you want to bang your head to a very familiar beat, Heavy Trip is a solid cover version.
The production manages to maintain control of outrageousness, keeping extremes sly and silliness within reach, skillfully finding moments of pure joy.
A genuinely entertaining, heartfelt, laugh out loud film...
