Raised on the wrong side of the tracks, young Jimi Hendrix (Wood Harris) knew that his music was going to be his ticket to greatness. Discovered by an unscrupulous manager (Billy Zane) and put on an exhausting world tour, Hendrix was pushed to the limit...but it paid off. Stunning audiences at Monterey and Woodstock, this ground breaking artist was clearly on his way up. Until fame led him into a dark haze of drugs and alcohol...a course which would fatally end his euphoric rise to the top.

Enjoyable dive into late 60s pop culture - Hendrix review by CD

Spoiler Alert

I enjoyed this film much more than I expected. It seems to receive little critical coverage, but the characters and acting are good and the music at times really excellent. It takes a bit to get used to actors trying to represent legends such as Hendrix and Cream, but here it works well and I found the way the managers and promoters were displayed in the film as an interesting extra angle. I came away with a real desire to listen to more Hendrix music across all eras of his bands, so a good result I think for the fim-makers and for the great man himself.

Very Good Film. - Hendrix review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Did not expect to like this, the Hendrix story is a

bit clouded with "hippie nonsense".  I have been

following it since 1966 and I think this is closest  to

the truth yet. The Mike Jeffrey's and  Noel Redding

characters to me look real also Jimi's  too.

I like covers of music done well and thoughtfully like

this .  The JHE were pushed  hard but maybe Jimi

should have waited to build his own studio...... 

The last scene struck me as realistic too.  Sad.
