"THIS MOVIE IS A HORRIBLE MISREPRESENTATION, AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE UNLESS YOU WANT TO SEE AN UNBELIEVABLY SLANDEROUS, SUPERFICIAL AND BANAL MOVIE. THE SADDEST THING IS THAT PEOPLE WILL SEE THIS FILM AND THINK THIS IS AN ACCURATE PORTRAYAL OF SUTCLIFFE AND OF LENNON, WHICH IT IS NOT. ONE OF THE WORST THINGS ABOUT THIS FILM IS A BRUTAL FIGHT SCENE THAT IS ENTIRELY UNTRUE AND FABRICATED AND HAS NOT ONE OUNCE OF TRUTH TO IT. IT SHOWS SUTCLIFFE BEATING UP A FRIEND OF HIS GIRLFRIEND, IN A JEALOUS RAGE. I INTERVIEWED A PERSON WHO KNEW STUART THEN, AND THEY STATE THAT THAT FIGHT NEVER OCCURRED, NOTHING EVER EVEN CLOSE TO IT. SUTCLIFFE WAS GENTLE AND NONVIOLENT,ACCORDING TO QUOTES BY EVERYONE WHO KNEW HIM INCLUDING LENNON AND HARRISON IN REAL LIFE, AND THIS FABRICATED UNTRUE SCENE MAKES HIM SEEM LIKE A NUT. THE FILM MAKES LENNON SEEM LIKE A WHINNY HOMOPHOBIC ANGRY MESS, AND THERE IS NO DELVING INTO THE COMPELLING TRUTHS ABOUT WHY LENNON AND SUTCLIFFE WERE SO COMPATIBLE AND DEEPLY CLOSE AND CARING FRIENDS. SUTCLIFFE WAS A GENTLE ARTIST, HE SOON TIRED OF THE ROCK AND ROLL LIFE, AND WAS A DEEP THINKER, INTELLIGENT, AND CARING AND ANY BIO BOOK ON HIM CLEARLY STATES THAT, AND HIS FRIENDS AND THE BEATLES HAVE MADE MANY QUOTES ABOUT HIS TRUE FASCINATING CHARACTER. THIS FILM IS RUBBISH AND MAKES HIM OUT TO BE A JERK WITH NO REASON TO BE A MOODY JERK. THE PERFORMANCE BY DORFF AND IAN HART ARE GREAT, BUT THE SCREENPLAY IS GARBAGE. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS ONE, AND IF YOU WANT TO SEE A MORE REALISTIC VERSION OF SUTCLIFFE, WATCH THE TV BIOPIC CALLED "LENNON"."
