I saw this movie when i was a young teen and it captures it, all the feelings the will to rage against the machine. Slater is great, specially in monologues. And big plus: the soundtrack is amazing, it's really ecclectic and the song of Cohen "everybody know" is now one of my favourite's.

I first watched this movie when I just started my teenage years, it spoke to me then and, as a 21yr old, it still speaks to me. It captures the angst and confusion any teenager goes through perfectly. It also points out what's wrong with the world and what was true then, still is now. In my opinion you could release this movie once every ten years and it would still be current.
Christian Slater is fantastic in the lead role playing Mark Slater and his alter-ego Happy Harry, the pirate radio DJ. Slater himself says it is one of his favourite roles he's played; less to say he plays the angsty/dark teen very well. Samantha Mathis captures her character perfectly and, if you look hard enough you'll capture a glimpse of a seriously young Seth Green.
This is a great movie and always watchable, in all honestly it's a movie that will never age. It's a movie anyone can watch and as a teen I found it helpful and very enjoyable.

This was the first film I watched with Christian Slater. I fell in love with him after this film. I could not find it anywhere, then stumbled upon it here. I was in delight. The story line was good, something a bit different for the year. Very enjoyable, I watched it again the other night. Childhood memories came back. Buy it

Like the other reviewers I first saw this movie when I was a teenager and thought it was great. Now I still think it is great and I can thank the soundtrack for first introducing me to alternative music. This movie is really a teen movie but can be enjoyed by anyone who likes music, free speech and rocking the boat a bit.

I recently remembered this movie as something I adored when I was a young teen. As always I still love the movie, Young!Christian Slater was excellent. The DVD arrived promptly and in perfect condition. I have absolutely no qualms about ordering from them again. Great service.

This film is one that everyone should watch. A true classic now. Great soundtrack too.
It will have you wanting to rush out and set up your own pirate radio station, or whatever the modern equivalent would be!

One of my favourite movies growing up. If I had the equipment Slater has in this movie - then I'd definitely love to have done the same thing. 25yrs old and still as entertaining!
