News & Interviews for The Beat Beneath My Feet

Critic Reviews for The Beat Beneath My Feet

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Michael Mueller's character-driven script is about the only thing that feels driven in this otherwise listless vehicle, and "The Beat Beneath My Feet" conveys all the pulse-pounding energy of a funeral procession.

October 20, 2016 | Full Review…

Music is very definitely an essential part of [director Williams'] storytelling toolbox, which gives the movie energy even when it lacks finesse.

October 18, 2016 | Full Review…

This stultifying British indie piles on the clichés like they were going out of fashion (which they did, decades ago).

May 11, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This film is for anyone who has ever played air guitar in the privacy of their bedroom. Or maybe, like me, you used a tennis racket. Either way, it's about the nurture and realisation of an improbable dream, and it's very nicely done.

October 18, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Beat Beneath My Feet offers a fond reminder of why we all loved Luke and introduces a bright young talent in its lead.

October 18, 2016 | Full Review…

It would be easier to forgive the corny, sub-Grange Hill cliches in writer-director John Williams's script if the actual music, on whose excellence the whole thing depends, was credibly catchy and not derivative tosh.
