Rupert Grint’s Rave Reviews for CBGB
It’s fun to see actors like Rupert Grint as Cheetah Chrome (he’s excellent);
Grint has been doing interesting work lately; in CBGB he’s a standout as Cheetah Chrome, guitarist for punk band the Dead Boys.
Rupert Grint enthusiastically plays guitarist Cheetah Chrome
Rupert Grint — the “Harry Potter” films’ Ron Weasley — has a spiky turn as the Dead Boys’ Cheetah Chrome.
“The surprising stand-out is Rupert Grint as Dead Boys bassist Cheetah Chrome. It’s as un-Harry Potter a performance as you could imagine and he enthusiastically embraces Daniel Radcliffe’s post-Potter habit of showing his bum as often as possible.”
“Now this band, comprised of actors Justin Bartha, Rupert Grint, and Bronson Adams, are actually magnetic to watch […] I wanted to see the movie about these guys rather than the cornball comedy that’s going on around them.”
“A rare moment when the movie gets close to finding a beating heart occurs as Hilly tries to produce a record for The Dead Boys (with one of the members played amusingly by Rupert Grint), a band too unruly to deliver upon the seriousness required by the trade.”
“However, it was a special treat to see Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley in Harry Potter) sporting a dog collar and scowling over his guitar as Cheetah Chrome from the Dead Boys.”
“Rupert Grint and Justin Bartha are so good as the Dead Boys that I would actually watch a spin-off biopic.”
“Rupert Grint, of Harry Potter fame, deserves special mention as Cheetah Chrome, the incorrigible guitarist for the band, who embodies both the charm and the recklessness of many of the scene’s major players.”
