    Quite possibly the worst acting you will ever witness. Of course, that's offset by the $200 budget for cinematography. I don't really know who this guy was, but whoever he was, and however crappy his life may have been, he deserves better than this as an epitaph.

    There was a opportunity to make a good movie about a rock and roll/punk legend, but instead they made a low rent version of the Shining. At least the actor playing Thunders didn't scream out "Here's Johnny, so he gets the one star!!"

    I'd been anxiously awaiting the release of this flick ever since I first saw the trailer, which honestly blew me away. Leo Ramsey plays Johnny Thunders with haunting accuracy. The voice, the way he talks, his movements, the guy nails it. He IS Johnny. The movie looked like a straight up horror film in the trailer, however, what this movie really is, is a mystery. A mystery that slowly reveals itself to you, piece by piece, as Johnny Thunders tries to figure out who robbed him and get a fix of Methadone. You feel so bad for him. Leo Ramsey does a brilliant job of portraying someone in the worst of heroin withdrawals. His stiff movements, his complete lack of energy and strength. It's all there and only makes you feel more for him. Poor guy just wanted to make the wrong things right and be with his kids again. Is this a perfect movie? Absolutely not. Does it have things that could've been done better? Definitely. However overall, this is a very unique, entertaining, and thrilling movie. Besides a couple of short films, this is The Cordero Brothers first feature film that they've directed and I believe it to be a really strong debut for them. They've taken one of Rock'n'Roll's biggest mysteries and turned it into a really solid mystery. Did all of the stuff in the movie necessarily REALLY happen in Johnny's final hours? No. The truth is, no one knows what happened to Johnny. But this movie is a very entertaining proposition of what COULD have happened. And the end result is haunting, tragic, and creepy. From the sick greenish tinted lighting that seems to follow Johnny all throughout the movie, to Leo Ramsey's masterful performance, The Cordero Brothers frenetic & captivating directing, and the haunting soundtrack by Rusted Robot, it all comes together to make something really special. A truly twisted and sad vacation. Ignore the haters in this comment section and see this flick for yourself.

    By all means,, its more like a straight story about an artist that tries to become straight again after years of havocing and surfing the wave of fame in rock and roll, with alcohol in one hand and drugs in the other, and a suffers a bend so extrem that it almost makes him bend over, for god and everyone for a dose of methadon, to ease the pain. but everyone doesnt care and the ultimate chaos in the end, due to endless sessions of paranoia and hallusinations seems to give the main cgharacter a one way ticket to hell.

    the acting are not good, its feasable at times, but in the art of acting panick, the actor comes short, and the look in his eye to the director screams '' CAN WE STOP NOW FOR GODS SAKE''.

    the tech impression bears all signs of low budget, and pennyturning, it has its moments,, but its merely a reprise of good old twists and turns.

    but by all means , i give it a 6, for the fancy looking main character, that reminded me, the grumpy old man, of the swedish actor rickard wollf in the aenglag?rd triology

    I thought this was going to be a documentary.

    Turns out it's a movie with actors all trying to cash in on Johnny Thunders' death.

    It's truly the worst movie I have ever seen. Makes Ed Wood look like Copolla.

    Do not support this garbage.
