Product Description

Product Description

A fictionalised account of the rise and fall of the infamous 1970s New York nightclub, Studio 54. Controversial owner Steve Rubell (Mike Myers) recognises star potential in young Shane O'Shea (Ryan Philippe) and gives him a job behind the bar. Shane's good looks and charm ensure the dancefloor remains full, but Rubell's empire is threatened by the decadence and corruption that runs through it.

From Amazon.co.uk

Studio 54 is no Saturday Night Fever--more like Sunday Morning Hangover. This portrait of the legendary Manhattan disco and its colourful cofounder, Steve Rubell, plays like the outtakes of a much more interesting film—where are the sex, the drugs, the classic disco music? (It shouldn't surprise viewers that Miramax and writer-director Mark Christopher had a falling-out over the final cut of the film; Miramax prevailed.) Considering that the essence of Studio 54 was about the rich and beautiful, it seems a bit unwise to focus on the poor and only somewhat beautiful, namely Shane (Ryan Phillippe), a Jersey boy who gets taken in by the razzle-dazzle of the disco era. Crossing the river, Shane finds another, more exciting life at Studio 54 as a shirtless bartender, and soon finds himself partying with the crème de la crème--and smitten with comely soap star Julie (Neve Campbell).

The permutations of the story are familiar, but too many elements are missing. Most of Phillippe's performance seems to have ended up on the cutting-room floor (although his chiselled torso gets maximum exposure), Campbell's role is basically a glorified cameo and Breckin Meyer and Salma Hayek, as Phillippe's only true pals, are wasted. The one true gem of the film, though, is Mike Myers' take on the late Steve Rubell, an inspired high-wire performance that balances humour and tragedy without ever giving in to camp or pathos--his drunken proposition of Philippe is a minor treasure. The soundtrack does feature some unknown chestnuts and a few new remixes, including an inspired disco version of--believe it or not--Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind". --Mark Englehart

Format: Blu-ray
For fans of this movie looking for the long sought after "original director's cut" of 54, sadly it's not on this Blu-ray release. What is presented here is the heavily edited theatrical version and an extended cut (which basically has longer musical sequences). Whilst the picture quality is pretty good, the sound is a little on the soft side but once you turn it up you'll feel like you're in the legendary club Studio 54. This film has one of the best soundtracks of vintage late 70's early 80's dance music you're ever likely to hear. Why only three stars? There are NO bonus features. Not even the video for Stars on 54's mega hit "If You Could Read My Mind" or a theatrical trailer. Maybe one day the original director's version will see the light of my bluray laser. I await it's release in anticipation.

BIG note to Mirimax/Studio Canal :- Please release the original cut of the film. It needs to be seen as the director intended. You'll make your money back as it really has gained cult film status.

Wow! Perhaps reviews like this one have finally reached the head honchos at Mirimax. The unrated director's cut is now available in the EU.. here's a link...

54 is a film of outstanding emotional depth. It focuses on the efforts of a young out-of-town boy trying to make it big. The setting is the club Studio 54, where drugs and sex are the norm, if you know the right people. It is a portrayal of the rich and careless, in a world where anything and everything is available for the right price. We see the main character's rollercoaster ride up into the heady heights, and his ultimate inner struggle with morals and sensibilities. An outstanding film, containing all the right ingredients for a fascinating insight.

I'm a huge fan of the mythos of the origial Studio 54, but unfortunately Miramax wouldn't let Mark Christopher have the final say. Ryan Phillipe's suprisingly good performance is cut, to highlight his torso and pout - and Mike Myers isn't given HALF enough time to show off his amazing take on Steve Rubell. Neve Cambell is as dull as usual, but gladly her on screen time is very limited.

Overall, quite a depressing film - but only in the same way that Saturday Night Fever isn't a disco at all - it's a harsh telling of a 70s story.

I was pleasantly surprised by this film, but it would have been SO much better if Miramax had let Christopher do what he intended, and kept all the cuts. What we need is a director's cut - that would get 5 stars.

By Charles Vasey TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Jan. 2010
Format: DVD
Studio 54 was an amazing interaction of exhibitionism, disco and showmanship. The film views it from the level of the busboy and hat-check girl as the usual young hopefuls rub up (in more ways than one) with fame. At times it has a Boogie Nights feel to it, not as sad certainly, but the same feeling of a strange family created out of hope and disillusion. Given the whole concept of disco is fairly vacuous in terms of defining lives the film does an admirable job; and lucky old Mike Myers to play Steve Rubell, an excellent role despite him looking like André Previn's naughty twin brother.

Anybody who grew up in the heyday of Studio 54, will know all too well the giddy heights that this club aspired too. This is an excellent film which delves into the behind scenes of the club and its owner, as well as the dancefloor antics too.
Altogether a great film, with a great cast and stunning soundtrack. Not to be missed!!!

This glitz `n' glamour black comedy drama charting the life of the most popular nightclub in the world takes place in the late 70's where only the pretty in pink were allowed in and the prettier in pink get picked to work there... Ryan Phillippe plays a hunky teenager who's first night at the club ends up in him becoming a bartender, its there he is introduced to a world of sex, drugs and all-night every-night parties, an unrecognisable Mike Myers is great as the nightclubs enthusiastic gay owner while the visuals of the movie are simply dazzling, so visual you will feel like you are on drugs yourself yet underneath all the glitz lies a pretty empty film underneath.

Sure it's not possible to remont the whole scenario back in disco times in one movie but it was fun to watch and imagine how was the that magical place called studio 54.
