Wanted to like this
I wanted to like this because it takes me back to a time when life was easy. Love period piece movies. So when I saw Zakk Wylde was in it I knew I had to check it out. While Zakk is the man, a funny guy and incredible guitarist the fact comes down to he can't act. Sometimes the movie rambled along with dialogue that was improvised as they went along. Retakes maybe could have happened a little more. Without giving anything away Zakk plays the uncle of a guitar prodigy, who he feels is wasting his talent when he should be out west starting a band, I know, silly. Zakk's character felt he missed out on his chance to be Ozzy's guitarist, see what it did there? So he tells this kid to chase his dreams as the next guitar god. The kid has some things happen along the way and at the end Zakk and a young girl appear to do what would only be considered...weird.
To put it simply it really is a bad movie which is a shame as I wanted to like it. Nothing more I can say except thankfully Zakk still plays music and he is much better on soundtracks.
