The Runaways (2010)
« on: September 04, 2011, 04:03:28 am »

To say that I was disappointed in this movie is a huge understatement. I'm a big fan of The Runaways and an even bigger fan of both Joan Jett and Lita Ford. But I knew going into the movie that it was going to be centered around Joan and Cherie Currie so there was no surprises in the lack of background information regarding Lita.

This movie was just downright awful. The script was underwritten, leaving the cast with nothing to do other than sneer and stumble around f*cked up. And this was a cast that I thought was going to bring their A-Game with Kristen Stewart as Joan and Dakota Fanning as Cherie. They both did a commendable job with the script they had to work with, but even they couldn't save this disaster. The film is devoid of any personality whatsoever and the biggest misstep is that the characters are nothing more than half-baked cardboard cutouts of Rock and Roll clichés. We the viewer have to want to feel something about the characters. The writing was so lifeless that I could have cared less what happened to them in the movie. And the editing of the movie was horrible.

The only good thing about this one is the soundtrack. If you're looking for a killer disc of some kick ass songs, this is the one to get. This is the only reason why it's even getting a very generous 2 star rating. Stay away from this movie and just buy the soundtrack is my only recommendation.

Skip it.
