Movie Info

When 15-year-old Shay hears the music of The Clash for the first time, it's a revelation that opens a new world of social consciousness and anti-establishment defiance beyond anything he's known in his dead-end London suburb. Drawn into the heart of the city's burgeoning punk scene, he forges two relationships that will change his life, falling in love with rebellious cool girl Vivian and finding an unexpected connection with none other than The Clash's electrifying frontman, Joe Strummer.

Critic Reviews for London Town

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (8)

  • The story of the Clash is a fascinating one, and spotlighting a kid inspired by, but not a part of, the punk milieu has plenty of potential. But "London Town" just never burns brightly enough.

  • As contrived as "London Town" is - with a derivative coming-of-age story and improbable, fateful encounters between a struggling teen and Clash frontman Joe Strummer - there is something here of the group's early, principled spirit.

    October 13, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie's impersonal, conventional telling of a reasonably standard male coming-of-age story almost tends to make the punk milieu it depicts beside the point.

    October 7, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The raw vigor and protest of punk get co-opted by the movie's coming-of-age story; it's not the heartfelt sweetness that's the chief problem, but how run-of-the-mill and derivative the plot is.

    October 6, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The era's skinhead riots and striking workers - and Strummer's biting, pro-immigrant lyrics - are never more than window dressing in a movie that would rather scatter fairy dust than grit.

    October 6, 2016 | Full Review…
  • "London Town," to borrow from a certain foursome, isn't "burning with boredom," but neither is it exactly "calling."
