  • Good anecdotes - but the film's willingness to indulge the band's rampant self-mythologising can get tiresome.

  • Watchable and interesting - if a tad worshipful ...

  • When it comes to chronicling their accomplishments on film, all they have to show for themselves is 90 flashy minutes' worth of rockumentary clichés.

    November 11, 2016 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Even if you don't care for the band, Kijak's exuberant style which mirrors the music might win you over.

  • This high-intensity group - resplendent in the plumage of a Sunset Strip hair band, and playing a kind of prog-metal - delivers the goods. In any language.

    November 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A maddeningly vague primer.
