Green Room Movie Review 

​Green Room was not what I expected it to be but I found it intriguing nonetheless.
It starts out like some kind of low budget docu-drama about an unknown punk band touring the upper northwest coast. Like most bands, they endure the usual hardships: no food, no gas, no money. 
Then, right when they’re about to call it quits, they get offered a high paying gig at a club frequented by skinheads. They’re reluctant at first but decide to do it because… they gotta eat something other than ramen noodles.
It takes a while for the crowd to warm up to their brand of acerbic punk music but they get through their set unscathed. They get paid and quickly load up their equipment. Then their bassist realizes she left her cell phone charging in the green room (backstage area). Unfortunately, when they go to retrieve it, they walk into the aftermath of a horrific crime scene. Things become much more complicated after that.
Anton Yelchin (Rest In Peace) gives a strong performance as Pat, the street smart guitarist. Patrick Stewart also gives an interesting performance as Darcy, the head of that particular white supremacist group.
The ending leaves much to be desired but makes some sense. If you like psychological thrillers with a minimum amount of gore you might like Green Room.
On a scale of 1 tamale to 10 tamales I give it 8 green tamales! 😎
