Editorial Reviews

According to rock 'n' roll lore, age 27 is a fateful milestone. From Robert Johnson, Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison to Kurt Cobain, all stars we lost at this very age. World famous rock star Spyder (Kevin Zegers - Transamerica, Frozen) has achieved fame and fortune with a smash hit debut album. This blinding success however, is built on the Faustian pact that capitalized on the genius of his long lost childhood best friend and band mate, Eric Genson (Jason Ritter - NBC's The Event, Good Dick). Now Spyder retreats to his small hometown after his sophomore effort flops. Reconnecting with Eric after a seven year estrangement, the two recall their youthful ambitions and reexamine the choices they've made. Accompanied by the band's ambitious, fiery manager (Taryn Manning - Hawaii 5-0, Hustle & Flow, 8 Mile), the legendary music impresario August West (Peter Fonda - Easy Rider, 3: 10 to Yuma) and a raucous crew of musicians, they set off on a cathartic journey along historic Route 66 that brings them closer to each other, their history and their destiny. Fueled by a stellar rock 'n' roll soundtrack that includes songs by Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Iggy & The Stooges, Alice in Chains, Muddy Waters, The Violent Femmes, Howlin' Wolf, Jane's Addiction, and many more, The Perfect Age of Rock 'N' Roll fully captures the energy, rebellion, and thrills of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle.

What do rock stars have when the music's over? Memories, Rock `n' Roll movies all seem to be told in flashback, like life is a remembered act. "The Perfect Age of Rock `n' Roll" keeps up the tradition following in the footsteps and owing some of the plot to "Eddie and The Cruisers", "Almost Famous" and "The Doors".

Spyder (Kevin Zegers) is the lead singer of the band, The Lost Soulz, who had the biggest selling debut album of all time. The problem is he stole the songs on the album from his childhood friend Eric (Jason Ritter), and after the failure of his second album he goes back to childhood home and gets Eric to write new songs for The Lost Soulz next album. Eric agrees to write the songs on the condition that Spyder accompanies him on a trip cross country in the RV of August West (Peter Fonda, playing instead of a motorcycle guru which he's done in recent movies), a Rock `n' Roll guru and sage. Joining them on the trip is Rose (Taryn Manning) a former lover of Spyder's and record company flunky who is supposed to get Spyder to L.A. with his new hit album. On the road they run into old rivalries, new loves, and Spyder's Rock `n' Roll lifestyle.

Kevin Zegers and Jason Ritter are the focus of the movie and as their stories unfold give performances that are the pillar and main support of the movie. Peter Fonda gives a good performance, although he doesn't seem to be extending himself much, it seems he's relishing the roles of his late career as sort of counterculture guru and his presence is supposed to add that creditability. Billy Dee Williams in a short cameo literally phones in his performance as the big time record company executive wanting his promised new hit record.

I saw this film in Dallas when it was in theaters, and I was both pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed it. As a huge music fan, I went in with my doubts and came out quite impressed. It's a great little indie film with a big cast and surprisingly big ambitions -- many of which it lives up to. It's also one of those rare films (certainly by today's standards) that requires a couple of viewings to fully grasp all its subtleties, which is why I will be buying it on DVD when it's released. I've read much of the on-line criticism by the mainstream critics and all I can say is, wow. I've always had a healthy measure of skepticism towards movie critics, but there may be no greater example of how out of touch with reality this group tends to be. There was harsh and undue treatment given to Perfect Age by the same critics who readily sit up and applaud, like trained seals, when Hollywood issues it's steady stream of regurgitated swill. The film's tremendous cast, their acting, the storytelling, soundtrack, surprising depth and of course the cameo appearance of blues legends combine to make this film a real gem. A diamond in the rough. Movie critics to me are on the same rung as politicians, bitter, untrustworthy, bought and paid for. Check it out and see if I'm wrong. I doubt it.

Writer/Director Scott Rosenbaum recounts an oft told tale in his debut feature "The Perfect Age of Rock 'N' Roll." There are few character types more compelling than the aging musician riddled with self destructive tendencies. Living a life of excess certainly takes its toll and we've seen it in countless movies throughout time. And that's some of the problem with this film. Despite its earnestness and its appealing cast, you can't help but feel like you've been down this road before. In and of itself, that's fine. Movies often recycle themes and try to reinvent them in different ways. "Perfect Age," for me, just failed to break free of the genre trappings. It had an unyielding familiarity and every step of the journey followed expected pathways. For a movie about bad behavior, recriminations, and betrayal--the movie seemed relatively tame compared to some of its counterparts. Ultimately, it lacked that certain spark that might have distinguished it dramatically. Luckily, the movie boasts a solid soundtrack and the musical performances are certainly a highlight. And that is a critical element that helps the picture immensely.

The movie is structured in flashback as a reporter (Lukas Haas) is granted an exclusive interview with a former rock god (Kevin Zegers) who now lives in exile and solitude. There is some speculation about a missing album that shrouds the story like the mysterious cousin to "Eddie and the Cruisers," but that's really just a red herring that begins this story of friendship and betrayal. As the principle plot unravels in the flashback, we are introduced to Zegers who is already a troubled but successful artist. He reconnects with a childhood friend (Jason Ritter) who was responsible for writing much of the material that helped Zegers achieve his stardom.

I had the opportunity to see this film when it was released in the theaters. I absolutely loved it! All the performances were outstanding, especially the three leads Jason Ritter, Kevin Zeggers and Taryn Manning. With solid supporting castmates Peter Fonda (C'mon the guy's a legend!) , Kelly Lynch and Lauren Holly, the actors really tell a great story. The overall tone and direction were spot on and I found myself loving every minute. This well crafted story deserves attention. Plus the music is kick ass, paying tribute to the Blues! A must have for any and all music and movie lovers alike!
