Killing Bono Movie Reviews
User reviews on Killing Bono
While I loved the performances of Ben Barnes and Robert Sheehan, I can not say the same thing about this movie, it was just alright, I wish that Robert Sheenan got better films in the future. There was a lot of resemblence to other rock and roll movies like “Almost Famous”, but I liked that. What I did not like about this film is that it was too self important and it definitely turned me off. I also did not like the music in the film, I wonder is the real music of the duo was any better or actually worse. Overall, this film is better off watched at home, I would not suggest seeing it in the theaters.
This is a comedy about two brothers who are trying to become global rock stars but their old high school pals U2 become extremely famous and cast the brothers deeper into the shadows, the film is directed by Nick Hamm and stars Ben Barnes, Robert Sheehan and Krysten Ritter. I thought that Ben barnes and Robert Sheenan (who I adore and wish he get better parts) were great and very convincing as bickering brothers but the rest of the film was not as good. The film is appearantly based on a real story and that is pretty interesting but the film fails to make a dramatic impact on the audience. The film tries really hard to seem crazy and interesting but it fails to do that. Overall, I do not recommend seeing this film in the theaters.
