Movie Review: Green Room

Green Room was our main Saturday night movie last week, primarily chosen because hubby wanted to see Patrick Stewart as a bad guy. It also stars the late Anton Yelchin. The premise is….skint punk band are touring and go out of their way to do a gig and an interview. This turns out to be a load of rubbish, they make just a few dollars from it and the interview doesn’t get air time as the interviewer loses his job. Obviously annoyed, one of the band members has a go at the guy who interviewed them but as they’re are leaving he comes running up and tells them he can set them up another gig at a place his cousin works. It’s skin head/far right country but the money is good. So off they go, with some concerns. No spoilers from now on in but things don’t go quite according to plan.

We loved this movie. The filming was gritty with a low budget and somewhat grubby feel. There was a British movie vibe about it. The acting is good throughout. The punk band engage in some levels of stupidity but who would know what to do when you’re trapped in a green room with neo-Nazis on the outside. There is some awesome gore factor, resulting in me shouting “bloody hell” on two occasions. It was some of the best I’ve seen in a while. The movie is tense, claustrophobic and brutal.

We gave it 9/10. It was definitely a film that went under the radar.

    I had heard of this film before, and saw a trailer for it. I have yet to see it, but it definitely got some rave reviews, and seems to be a film that for some reason has escaped notice somehow. Wonderful review 😀
