Movie Review by Lisa
August 10th, 2007

Teenage wasteland

This movie is a true British cult classic and I will tell you now before I even start the review that you owe it to yourself to watch this movie.

The film is based on the Who's 1973 rock opera/album of the same name. The movie is set in the 60's when the whole Mods V's Rockers thing was going on. Jimmy our leading man is brimming with teenage angst, he has a sh*tty job in advertising that he despises and his only release is donning his Italian suit and parker and hanging out with his mod buddies on their lil vespa's. In the course of 5 days we see Jimmy's life go from disappointing to cataclysmic, he gets arrested, quits his job, finds out his bird is f*cking his mate and his idol Ace (played by Sting) is a bellboy and not the hot shot he believed him to be.

There are numerous British TV actors in this movie namely Leslie Ash, Phil Daniels, the marvelous Ray Winstone and 80's pop tart Toya Willcox.

On its own this movie is awesome but when you combine it with a phenomenal soundtrack courtesy of the fabulous Who it makes it f*cking outstanding.
