My ozploitation adventure, thanks to Umbrella Entertainment, has been very unique for the maximum component.There has been quite a few wild films starting from romantic comedies, to horror, and sci-fi however very few are as bizarre and precise as 1978’s Stunt Rock.The film is a medley of musicals, mockumentary, highlight reel, and action all wrapped together.It’s a one of a kind movie for positive but one I certainly enjoyed.This one become currently released with the aid of Umbrella as part of their Ozploitation Classics line and they had been kind sufficient to send a replica my way for overview.Thanks guys!
Spoiler AlertThe movie follows Australian stunt legend Grant Page who travels the U.S. to help a fantasy inspired band grow their level display to consist of magic tricks and explosions.While helping the band the film showcases some of his wildest and remarkable stunts and a bevy of interviews from those that know and paintings with him.Spoiler Alert
I had no concept what this movie turned into going to be about but the poster and tagline sold me on it.The movie what now not what I was looking ahead to but I virtually enjoyed it.It doesn’t have a whole lot of a replay cost but it’s incredible for a primary time watch.
The cast includes the band individuals of the U.S. band Sorcery, Page, and several others that has labored with him in other movies and projects.They don’t in reality have characters and the film doesn’t actually have intensive interviews with people so it’s honestly tough to judge this aspect of the movie.I will say that it did open me up to the band and I know have a number of their songs on my iTunes in order that became a plus.The tale for this one pretty tons simply follows inserts of Page working with Sorcery, Page acting stunts, and Sorcery appearing on degree.It doesn’t genuinely supply much extra aside from that.However, I will say that I would have loved this even more if it changed into approximately Sorcery instead of Page.I realize how a good deal he has contributed to film and Australian cinema but Sorcery was the real big name of the show here.
Finally, the film doesn’t have any blood and gore for the ones of you interested.Instead, we get a few cool as stunts and some concert pictures from Sorcery.It’s an odd movie but absolutely fun.Overall, Stunt Rock changed into no longer what I become looking ahead to when this one showed up for assessment but I might be lying if I stated I didn’t love it.It changed into plenty of amusing and I walked away with a new band to enjoy.I fairly suggest snagging this launch from Umbrella Entertainment.
