Jason watches PIRATE RADIO

It was just okay. It has many amusing bits, and obviously lots of cool classic rock (which seems to be the main reason to make the movie). But it literally takes 3/4 of the movie before it even gets moving, and once it does it gets hackneyed and cliche. Especially the villains--government ministers trying to shut them down. Kenneth Branagh, normally a much better actor, is a broad mockery of a minister afraid of rock and roll, and his right hand man Twatt (Jack Davenport) is referred to way too much by name. The joke gets old damn quick.
