Bandslam

Band together.


Bandslam
Hollywood intertwines a few formula movies here. On the one hand there's the new kid in school, who has trouble making friends. He gets involved with a ravishing blonde, who turns out to have a hidden agenda involving music, which is his strong point. He helps her set up a band to take on her ex-boyfriend in a typical underdog-sports-story battle of the bands. Meanwhile he finds himself attracted to another girl, and the the blonde helps him court her.

111 minutes.

Jeanne Calitz quote iconHeel interessant

Cape Times
Michael Rechtshaffen quote icon'Bandslam' a fresh backbeat
15
Box Office
Amy Nicholson quote iconFor a wide release, this one’s got a ''can't believe I found this one in the $3 bin!'' vibe.
10
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThis isn't a breakthrough movie, but for what it is, it’s charming, and not any more innocuous than it has to be.
15
eye Weekly
Will Sloan quote iconThe 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.
10
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconThis entire production comes off as recycled mediocrity.

Tomatometer quote iconBandslam is an intelligent teen film that avoids teen film cliches, in an entertaining package of music and coming-of-age drama.
