Movie Info

Jimi Hendrix was perhaps the single most groundbreaking guitarist in the history of rock & roll; utilizing feedback, distortion, and effects pedals as integral parts of his sound and not simply as punctuation, Hendrix created a radically new aesthetic for the electric guitar, which combined with his superlative songwriting abilities and remarkable gift to bring out the most in other musicians helped to make him one of the most important figures in '60s rock, until his death in the fall of 1970s as a result of a drug overdose. This made-for-TV biography (originally shown on the Showtime premium cable network) stars Wood Harris as the legendary guitarist, and examines his life and career, both on and off the stage. Hendrix also stars Vivica A. Fox and Dorian Harewood; the filmmakers were unfortunately unable to obtain permission to use Hendrix's own songs in the film, so his onscreen performances are of covers Jimi recorded during his career.

Audience Reviews for Hendrix


This wasn't too bad, but they could have done a lot more with it. I guess I expected too much and was kinda let down. The acting was pretty good though.

02-23-08 --a very poor example of the life of Jimi Hendrix. The acting was allright but there wasn't any real story behind the movie. Plus hardly any of his "good" songs were in the movie...
