What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Battle of the bands, high school style...
Jeanne Calitz Heel interessant
Michael Rechtshaffen 'Bandslam' a fresh backbeat
Amy Nicholson For a wide release, this one’s got a ''can't believe I found this one in the $3 bin!'' vibe.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert This isn't a breakthrough movie, but for what it is, it’s charming, and not any more innocuous than it has to be.
Will Sloan The film mostly eschews outlandish situations and cartoon characters in favour of a relatively naturalistic approach. And if a movie with a character named “Sa5m” can pull off naturalism, that’s something to be admired.
C. Fuchs This entire production comes off as recycled mediocrity.
Tomatometer Bandslam is an intelligent teen film that avoids teen film cliches, in an entertaining package of music and coming-of-age drama.
