City of Rock and maybe some comedy too
I can think of a handful of movies from China and Hong Kong about rock ‘n’ roll: Beijing Rocks, The Heavenly Kings, He’s a Woman, She’s a Man… City of Rock seems to be more of a misfit team of underdogs like Shaolin Soccer than music. Can the band stick together long enough to play a benefit concert and save their hometown’s beloved park? Or will they implode or sell out first?
Made by the superhero parody Jian Bing Man director Da Peng, the trailer has some pretty funny moments and some groaners. Does it really matter if the band is any good?
