Audience Reviews for The Beatnicks

I can't believe this movie took so long to come out ! Norman Reedus from "The Boondock Saints " and Mark Boone Jr. from "Sons of Anarchy" play a poet and a musician in LA looking for a gig. They find this cool looking magic box that creates music that they use to get the gig of a lifetime. One surprise I really did like was that Eric Roberts ("Batman:The Dark Knight"), while in another role as a villain, was really pretty cool in the movie. There is even a scene where he's playing the piano ! I did not know he played. I think everyone should check this movie out. Its refreshing to see good independent films that become available. I read that this movie is self distributed as well. Go Indie's ! Keep it up.
