Storyline

Eddie And The Cruisers. They say rock ‘n’ roll never dies, but one early morning in 1964, Eddie Wilson’s car took a dive off a New Jersey bridge with the troubled rock idol at the wheel. His body was never found. Twenty years after the lead singer of Eddie and the Cruisers disappeared, the band’s songs are hotter than ever. And renewed interest in the band leads television reporter Maggie Foley to pursue a tantalizing mystery: What if Eddie is still alive? The circumstances surrounding his death are just shadowy enough to make it a distinct possibility, and someone (could it be Eddie?) has been ransacking the homes of the surviving band members in a desperate search for tapes of the group’s visionary, never-released album. As Maggie interviews the former band members, the pieces of the puzzle start to fit – but only until still deeper mysteries begin to surface.

More Here Than Meets The Eyes Or Ears In One Viewing

Disregard what the big time movie reviewers may say! Despite a poor sound track, there is much more to this film than is obvious within one viewing. It took me awhile to get into it, but once I did, I loved it more with each viewing. The underlying premise of the film, that there was, indeed, a definitive crossover point between the innocent early rock and roll music of the 1950’s and the deeper coming of age sounds of the mid to late sixties is quite real. And the charismatic title character “Eddie” has sensed this change in the wind, but is unable to convey his vision to those around him. Yes, there are a little too many flashback scenes for my taste, but all in all the film had something to say that deserves to be heard.
Very Good Rock ‘N Roll Film
 
This is one the best rock ‘n roll movies ever made, but that doesn’t say much since there haven’t too many that much good to begin with. However, this IS good.

It features solid music by John Cafferty, whose “The Dark Side,” is played quite a bit during the movie but is a great song and always enjoyable to hear. The movie also has interesting characters and a somewhat intriguing story. The story features a decent imitation of a Jim Morrison-type lead singer without getting too dramatic.

A very young Ellen Barkin is the female lead here. She looked better when she got a bit older. A young Joe Pantolione also is in here and Michael Pare was effective as the lead singer.

Don’t listen to the national film critics who didn’t care for the film. The public liked it and most times, they are a better judge.
