Better than I expected.. in part due to other bad reviews.. definitely worth a watch!

Personally.. I really enjoyed this film.. The cast playing the characters.. Andre playing Jimi etc Linda etc where all believable.. I liked the way the film unfolded, the way it was different in its take on a biography.. Didn't try to cover everything, a snapshot of the early time and place in Jimi's life.. those important first steps to fame.. I really don't get some of the bad reviews.. I guess that's their personal opinion as this is mine.. but being open minded.. this is a good film and worth a watch.. don't be put off.. take a look for yourself.. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised..

Inaccurate and slow paced

  • The movie missed the opportunity to dive deeper into the music, but decided to focus on the uninteresting relationships.


  • Editing is weird and slow paced. Dialogue was layered on top of alternate dialogue and 40% of the movie is complete silence (people smoking or just staring at things). The movie is 2 hours long, so there is a A LOT of fillers due to the dullness of the script.


  • The script is bull. Hendrix was not aggressive and disrespectful to Kathy, and Clapton was not jealous of Hendrix.


As much as I love Hendrix, this film was nothing but and insult to Jimi's legacy. Honestly, the only scene worth watching is the band's performance of Sgt. Pepper's.

5/10

Where's the music?

John Ridley's "Jimi: All Is by My Side" is a worthy effort, but without Jimi Hendrix's music it comes across flat. And as happens with a lot of biopics, there seems to be an emphasis on the unpleasant parts of the subjects life (we can debate the authenticity, although Kathy Etchingham has criticized it). The point is that Jimi Hendrix might not be someone whose life story you can film. At least not without his songs. I'd say that "Purple Haze", "Hey Joe" and Hendrix's riff on "The Star-Spangled Banner" tell more about his life than any movie can. He was the greatest guitarist of all time, and this movie doesn't do him justice.

So remember what he said about the power of love overcoming the love of power.
