All the characters are like blank figurants with automatic dialogues while Hesher is a hiperbolized version of a metalhead or a regular Joe's combined prejudices about what a metalhead is, a caricature to entertain the non-initiated. If you lose one nut...you still got one left. P.S. Metallica sucks even the single ball left. Put some Violator, Adrenicide, Dr. Livingdead instead.
Pretty terrible film misconceived on almost every level. Predictable pablum full of unlikable characters we couldn't care less about. Have always sung Gordon-Levitt's praises but even he's awful in this one. "Hesher", "Thor", "Your Highness"....Natalie Portman needs a new agent.
