I was told it had to be a good movie. I nearly forced myself to watch it till the end, and yet, I skipped some moments due to one and relentless feature of this awful film - boredom. This is probably The worst movie I ever saw in many years. Everything seems to be wrong here. The casting is wrong, as actors seem to be only delivering their cues obviously lacking soul and gusto. The light - this sick sepia tone and frequent colored glitches really make dizzy and vomiting. The plot is a meandering endless talk of the main hero, not interesting in a split second. Even the music - nay, it has no cohesion here, and only Wrote For Luck by Happy Mondays is OK. The film was supposed to be about bands? Nay, I saw no real bands - just a mish-mash of some trite clichés, awful concert cues, millions of 4-letter invectives and silly sex scenes. The Factory records? It never was depicted nice, too. Just a scanty account of some dialogs, shaky camera fights, more bad words and more booze. Well, I would not like to be in such Britain as in the film. I trued as hard as I could to follow. Hopeless. Meaningless trash, coarse language, endless talks, blurred camera work, very hazy plot and very slow development. Just bad. Skip it

The Synopsis for 24 Hour Party People (2002) 720p
Manchester 1976: Cambridge educated Tony Wilson, Granada TV presenter, is at a Sex Pistols gig. Totally inspired by this pivotal moment in music history, he and his friends set up a record label, Factory Records, signing first Joy Division (who go on to become New Order) then James and the Happy Mondays, who all become seminal artists of their time. What ensues is a tale of music, sex, drugs, larger-than-life characters, and the birth of one of the most famous dance clubs in the world, The Hacienda - a mecca for clubbers as famous as the likes of Studio 54. Graphically depicting the music and dance heritage of Manchester from the late 70's to the early 90's, this comedy documents the vibrancy that made Mad-chester the place in the world that you would most like to be.

One Word - Boredom. Sick BoredomReviewed bydenis888Vote: 7/10
Alternative music is a passion of mine, so when I heard that there was filmbeing made about factory records/'madchester', I was looking foward toseeing it. I wasn't disapointed.The script is very witty, the soundtrack is brilliant (Buzzcocks, A CertainRatio, Sex Pistols, Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays, I could goon....), it probably isn't 100% true to what actually happened, but thatdoesn't matter that much, after all, 24 Hour Party People is only afilm.It also brings you into the lives of those there, and also heavily exploresnot only the music, but the scene too, which is very important because itessentially spawned the rave music of today.A fun filled way to spend a couple of hours. Highly recomended.
Ignore the awful ads for 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE (which are bollocks!), and runout and see the film while it is out in limited release. Anybody with aninterest in Alternative Music in general, and the British Punk/New Wave &Rave scenes should see this examination of the past 25 years of British rockas filtered through the eyes of Factory Records' Tony Wilson.
Perhaps a bit too "inside" for general audiences, it is a rare example of amusic based film that its actually good cinema to go along with it's raucoussoundtrack. Well done, wry and entertaining. My only quibbles are that thefilmmakers seem to be preaching to the converted. Except for the tragic IanCurtis (JOY DIVISION), little attempt is made to inform the uninitiated asto why these bands mattered (NEW ORDER in particular, is just tossed aroundalmost as a brand name, rather than a living breathing artistic unit). Also,we are constantly told how wonderful Manchester is as a city, but we arenever really shown why.Steve Coogan's portrayal of Wilson really makes the film flow and live. It'snot the kind of role that usually wins awards, but here's hoping somecritics group somewhere notices. He's that fine.
