Writer-director Tricia Brock springs a few pleasant surprises while tilling familiar ground in her promising debut feature about a guitar-playing car thief who transforms a spiritless gospel group into a kick-ass blues band.
I loved the music. It's a good film.
How rockin' can a band be when their leader is Fred Willard?
This story of a vaguely Elvis-esque troublemaker who transforms the misfit gospel choir at a Baptist halfway house into a rockin' blues band could probably be screened at a real Baptist halfway house without controversy.
Folks looking for unchallenging, uninspired easy-to-swallow 90 minutes of entertainment may find it here. Personally, I'd rather put on the soundtrack to Blues Brothers 2000.
Predictable, but heart warming and makes you feel good inside. Stunning performance from both Scott and Black.
Very good movie!! Yet another one of those "quirky" movies that I got a kick out of. I like alot of movies that are based around music, but this one also had a very good cast and storyline.
The music is amazing. Funny and uplifting. Great cast who really played out their characters well. Lucas Black deserves something for his radiant performance. Loved the Plymouth!
A pretty silly send up of a group of young people who are apparently sentenced to an alternative to jail for their minor infractions. The real star of this however is the music. Some strong blues performances supposedly played by these delinquents kept this from being a total waste of time. The story itself seemed to lack focus. Was it supposed to be about Vernon (Lucas Black), an autistic young man, finding his place in the world and gaining his father's approval in the process? Was it about the conflict between two brothers, played by Fred Willard and John Michael Higgins over control of a small Baptist College? What was the deal with setting the story there, anyway? Or, was it supposed to be about a group of troubled teenagers finding redemption in coming together to play the Blues? Any of those various storylines could easily have served as the central theme, but by trying to develop all three, the film felt diluted and incomplete. We never really got a feel for what was driving any of these stories. It could be that this viewer demands too much from a comedy (this is no drama, despite the NF category definition) but I know it is possible to make a funny film that tells a good story as well. If not for the music, this just might have been unwatchable. Keb' Mo' only has a bit part and contributes no music to the film, while Taj Mahal only appears at the beginning and briefly at the end.
