going in way too many directions!!
11 May 2013 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

i am giving this movie a three star because the songs by "the grams" are very good. and that is the only thing that is keeping this - over one and one-half hour long movie - afloat. otherwise it would sink into a peak bog and no one would remember it.

some of the characters act and look like they were taken from the cast of arch-villains in a 'batman' movie! and the plot covers everything from drug addiction, envy, lust, depression, bullying, suicide, child abuse, etc. and on and on.

if the producers/director had just focused on the emotional need for Keva to address his personal emotional and physical bruising via his father through creating his music and the incidental forming of a most successful rock band, (which he never intended) i believe this would have been a grand flick. but as it is - it is just a jumble of ideas tossed together to appeal to the teen/tween set. and in doing that the movie is just a mess.
