      Allura If you are a young person who is looking for coming of age movies and you want to get into heavy metal music I think it's a great movie to watch. It's fun and has a good amount of band references in it. It is a little bit cringe but it's fun and has and easy plot to follow. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Lime Z Metal Lords probably shouldn't win any awards but it is a genuine and funny coming of age movie about three very different high schoolers uniting around their love of metal. Worth watching for a good laugh and to reminisce about the hopefulness of youth. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Dale V This movie was awesome from start to finish. Made me like metal! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review Leandro T A great, funny comedy about metal. Hunters a bit of a dick, but it all comes together in the end. A good comedy. Makes the top 10 list for me. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/11/24 Full Review Ha T A different look at the growing up story of teenage angst, friendship, love, with metal music woven in as context. I enjoyed it lot more than expected. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review Franky L Entertaining movie for a Saturday afternoon. Music is fun, and nice to see kids that are geeky end up super cool. Relatable if you are parent of band kids, or if you were-are a band kid.

      Robert Levin Newsday Play your favorite Rage Against the Machine album instead. Rated: 1/4 Apr 11, 2022 Full Review David Ehrlich indieWire Peter Sollett’s Metal Lords is small and patchy even by the standards of a throwaway Netflix movie that feels like it’s already been forgotten for you. Rated: C+ Apr 8, 2022 Full Review Leah Greenblatt Entertainment Weekly The story belongs to its young cast, and Lords' ramshackle comedy sweetly captures the rank anxiety, random humiliations, and undiluted hope of being young. Rated: B+ Apr 8, 2022 Full Review Cidnya Silva But Why Tho? A Geek Community What the story lacks in plot, it is carried by feel-good messages. The ending of [Metal Lords] makes me give out the biggest toothy grin. Weird kids exist and that’s okay. Rated: 7/10 Jan 4, 2023 Full Review Prahlad Srihari Firstpost Metal Lords plays its coming-of-age riff fast and loose. Rated: 2/5 Aug 8, 2022 Full Review Rahul Desai News9 Live (India) Metal Lords plays out like a generic offspring born from a tryst between School of Rock, The Spectacular Now and every high-school movie featuring two childhood friends, a strange girl and a Battle of the Bands contest. Rated: 2/5 Jul 20, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
