It's uneven -- and it lacks the primal power of its subject's classic recordings -- but Jimi: All Is By My Side offers a well-acted alternative take on the Hendrix myth.

Benjamin conveys something of Hendrix's gentleness and charm.
A hip-looking mess of a movie, made tolerable by Benjamin's spacey-cool Hendrix. Great costumes, few insights.
It's a risky approach that's bound to frustrate many folks, but it's also quite illuminating in its own way.
You can sense the movie's desire to break free of the demands of the rock biopic, but you can also sense it constantly being pulled back.
Thanks to Benjamin's performance and the unique quality of the subject itself, the movie's hard to dismiss.
A flawed, ambitious and deeply peculiar portrait of one of the 20th century's most enigmatic musical talents, in the year before he ascended to rock-god status, that resembles no other pop-music biopic you've ever seen.
The greatest disappointment here is that whilst Benjamin totally embodies the spirit of Hendrix... the performance he gives is far greater than the story it's contained within.
The biopic rocks. It's all-in on atmosphere, and unconcerned with putting out a laundry list of his conquests or getting things accurate.
All these things-aesthetic, composition, acting-ultimately end up secondary when compared to the dynamic performance at the film's center.
Against all odds, John Ridley has assembled the ideal team to tackle an exceedingly ambitious project, one that bears fruit at nearly every turn.
... an interesting curiosity that takes chances and gets at a certain truth about its enigmatic lead character.
[A] disjointed and clumsily made biopic of rock icon Jimi Hendrix.
I must admit I did find this film to be pretty entertaining. John Ridley has shown he can write complex character natures especially from his Oscar winning script '12 Years a Slave'. Whilst I am also have no complaints film-wise towards the casting as well as any factual inaccuracies; the cast solidly played out their parts, the editing was sharp and did add a lot of layers to the character backstories not the mention the soundtrack was also really good. I wouldn't say this film was in any aspect inspiring let alone trying to be incredibly glamorous. This just happens to be an entertaining portrait of Jimi Hendrix and lives up to expectation as a whole without being too special.
