(kr) wrote: Its main problem is that it takes a little while to get going, but once it does, it's a fine little piece of 21st century Britishness. The production design is first-class from start to finish - sets, props, and so on - and there are also some good cameos from Ayoade, Fielding and Barratt to enjoy.

(kr) wrote: I still don't know what this was supposed to be exactly. The directors seemed to forget what they wanted to show us about ten minutes into the film. It promises to expose the dark side of metal, as if they somehow have an inside track on the violence and mayhem that swept Norway in the early 90's. Sadly, this film is nothing but broken promises.The directors, Aites and Ewell, seem to want to make this into a character study. Rather than discuss the actions of these wanna-be revolutionaries, they prefer to have them discuss the heavy metal mentality. From the usual counter culture claptrap to pissing off the status quo, the interviews with these metal-heads offers nothing new. Murder and church arson are glossed over merely as inconsequential casualties of their futile movement. Aites and Ewell never go so far as to offer outright praise of these acts, but they don't condemn them either.The only one who really has anything thought provoking to say is Varg Vikernes. Now serving a 21 year sentence for murder, he was a central character in Norway's church burnings and violence two decades ago. Rather than provoking Varg into discussing his feelings about his crimes, the directors merely have him give a brief confessional. While the lack of full emotional disclosure is disappointing, he does offer a precious glimpse into his motives. Interesting and jaded, Varg is a complex mixture of intelligence and absurdity.This film tends to stay busy admiring it's subjects and avoids focusing on the controversy they created. Towards the end this was like watching an episode of Behind The Music. Never going to deep, never trying too hard, it concentrates on image rather than motives.

It had a few moments that I found amusing when I was a child, but watching it as an adult really just makes me wish they told a real He-Man story instead. It's a swing and a miss for sure, but if they get a reboot right, the fans will love them for it!

(ru) wrote: So an earthquake strikes California...Nothing new there, eh? Try telling that to the film makers of 'Earthquake'. I really can't think of anything as boring as watching a ten minute shaking camera sequence followed by another hour of terrible effects, bad acting and terrible plot. For shame. Thumbs down.
(jp) wrote: A horrid movie, all the way to it's awful end. It was unimaginative and unevenly paced. I would rather watch five hours of security footage than see this movie again.
(fr) wrote: A bourgeois from a rich, decadent, declining family turns to the state, wants to be "normal" (in fascist Italy). The focus is on character, psychology, sexuality, subjectivity, but the lesson may well be that such a focus is misguided, disastrous. It's like the sordid, ugly, shabby truth of the glamorous James Bond.
