With punk’s dead: SLC punks now comes the long-awaited sequel to the 1999 film punk by James Merendino, who took over the Director at this time. Again, it’s about a group of punks in the conservative Salt Lake City.
“Punk’s Dead” is an odd title for a motion picture that gives a major piece of its screen time to a gigantic show featuring about six or so punk groups. In any case, then there’s bounty to bring an eyebrow at up in James Merendino’s 17-years-after the fact continuation of a film whose religion status one might need to take his pledge for. As that film’s star Matthew Lillard clearly favored voicing Scooby Doo kid’s shows to returning to his part as purple-haired hero Stevo, Merendino ends up building a motion picture around Stevo’s buddy Heroin Bob, who rather awkwardly kicked the bucket in the principal film. Weave’s from-past portrayal might divert SLC Punk’s most vigorous fans, some of whom crowdfunded this trip, however couple of amateurs will welcome it warmly in what’s certain to be a brief showy twist.
