      Kristen Lopez Spectrum Culture If you're a fan of British music-themed dramas, London Town is right up your alley. Rated: 3/5 Nov 20, 2017 Full Review Andrew Barker Variety The story of the Clash is a fascinating one, and spotlighting a kid inspired by, but not a part of, the punk milieu has plenty of potential. But "London Town" just never burns brightly enough. Nov 30, 2016 Full Review Tom Keogh Seattle Times As contrived as "London Town" is - with a derivative coming-of-age story and improbable, fateful encounters between a struggling teen and Clash frontman Joe Strummer - there is something here of the group's early, principled spirit. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 13, 2016 Full Review Tori Brazier One Room With A View Formulaic writing is lifted to a higher level by a talented ensemble plus real stand out performances from Huttlestone and Rhys Meyers - even if their scenes together are contrived. Rated: 3/5 Mar 15, 2019 Full Review Jason Best Movie Talk For all its flaws, the film's underlying sweetness makes it hard to dislike. Good, too, to see punk icon Joe Strummer - played with bolshie vim by Jonathan Rhys Meyers - as the story's unexpected fairy godfather. Rated: 3/5 Apr 9, 2017 Full Review Jacqui Blue Film Inquiry London Town is a mostly entertaining romp and its cute fantasy is what makes it work. Mar 12, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jerod S London Town tries to swallow a coming of age story amidst poverty, drugs and the Clash. It can't accomplish all it desires, but Rhys Meyers brings a good energy. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/22/23 Full Review Liam D If you are a huge fan of The Clash this is worth a watch but for everyone else it's a very okay movie Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/15/22 Full Review Audience Member It's an amazing film Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A true story and also best movie of 2016 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Not sure why some reviewers think this film is just a run-of-the-mill coming of age story...there are plenty of elements that aren't run of the mill and also serve to highlight the social context of the period. I thought it was serious and winsome at the same time--a rare combination. Never sappy but sweet in a satisfying way, and thoughtful enough to ensure that grittier aspects of the time are there on the periphery. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a light-hearted movie. Good fun. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
