"In a league of its own!"

One of the best biographical films i have ever seen. It's difficult to put into words how amazing this film is, as what ever i say couldn't possible do it the justice it deserves.
Anyone interested in the clash, joe strummer, or even the punk movement in general is going to love this movie. it is both informative and entertaining, but more importantly: enlightening, eye opening and inspirational.
The film has been wonderfully put together and structured. It's in a league of it's own with its fast pace, immense soundtrack and surprising appearances from huge stars, such as johnny depp!
This is most certainly a must see film, I would reccomend to absolutely anyone of any age, but expecially those who around in the days of the clash!
